AFAIK in India, not yet. And yes, it must be expensive and thats why the convert is in the future when I have that kind of cash on hand.

Yup. Even a Lancer convert would be great. But I drive this car and it just gives me something else, something no other car can. Not even the fastest car is the world or the most economical or the best looking. Everyone has that 1 car that for no reason(or nearly no) whatsoever appeals to every fiber of their body and the vRS is that for me.
I had thought to get a good used lancer and convert it, I guess it would take me a total of 15L or so but that would give me a really good, proven, 300 bhp AWD Rally Legend. But I would rather spend that money on the vRS to get a unique piece of german brilliance rather than Japanese perfection.

Well said. There is just something about the vrs that many cars dont have. After my lancer is done this week in a couple months im gonna start searching for a vrs wagon for myself.

I thought that you were going to paint the rims gunmetal silver/grey ? What made you go for golden over it ? Oh and congrats on the car !!

Just curious, where are you getting your tuning and mods done ? I wanted to get porting and polishing as well as valve cutting done on my City but I dont know anyone who does it and is reliable.

I would personally say none, the tyres should speak for themselves. I know you will be getting good tyres, so why not show them off?

Yea this is a good idea. I have coilovers and i was thinking of lowering the car a bit more anyways the mud flaps would scrape everywhere.

Hey, where is ks motorsports ? Could I have the address plus contact number ? You didnt elaborate in your previous post but do they do the engine porting ?

I would get some really short mudflaps and fit those on just because you would mess up your car and others if you take it out in the rains
