Well dark inky blue to be precise, almost black like, darker than midnight blue (or was it the dust and grime on the car)
@Ricky- Bro, the car that I saw in Bombay is and was an EVO,no question about that. It sounds like it was repainted. Now we know there are atleast two such cars. That car is bad news. He wanted 5 lakhs for it, i offered him upto 1.75 (and got kicked by my friends who had come with me to check it out. They thought i offered too much but i thought otherwise) In that condition i think it was definitely worth the money i offered. Sometime later he was wanting to sell it for 3.5. I dont know its whereabouts at present.

This sure sounds like some totally different car ! Maybe it is now strutting around with a diesel engine in it

Just curious. Other than the obvious missing front headlight vipers & the missing cover/s for the point at which the jack is to fit. I do not see any other missing bits....do you ??

As for the car - I am not bidding, it's already paid for, it is just not in my possession right now!! It is another matter "which car" it really is !!





Cheers

Ishaan it is just the darkness below the car, which makes it look like the black skirting is missing. Anyways, the car seems to be in good overall shape !

The dark blue one I saw had different rims. So definitely this is not the same car.

Those rims are from a late-model W202 Gogi bhai. Could've been changed later or something of that sort. Or maybe they're after market replica rims.

Boss, This was and is a 2.3 cosworth. and is still available now asking 2.5lacs. Recaro front seats and rear buckets as you said. Was Auto tranny original, but now has a 5 speed normal. You know who's car me talking about. Worth it for 2.00lacs I guess. One needs to spend 5 lacs to bring it to original. A good condition eveo in UK can be bought for 3000 pounds and parts brought in.

The one I was looking at is a 2.5 16v, so it is obviously different Chalo now we know of atleast 3 cosworths in India

Hey

Need suggestions on new Alloys for the Cosworth. Borbet, BBS, Volk, Hijoin. I am thinking of 16" or 17" rims.

Any suggestions ? The Borbets I saw on pete's website LV 4 & LV 5 - I liked. Let it flow - the suggestions I mean !!

Though I'd prefer a deep dish design !!




Cheers

Old school BBS's (Mesh design) or Five Spoke Volk/Rays would be my suggestion.
