Dont, I know you might like the sleeper looks, many people do. But just the spoiler gives the Evo its Evo looks. It gives it character. It does not make it stand out in the crowd but when a true enthusiast looks at the car, he knows its an Evo(or atleast an evo look-a-like). Once he hears the Mivec, he will for sure know its a proper Evo. So my opinion is keep it on.

You, your painter & KS Motorsports are as quick as the EVO is in a 1/4 mile run . A little over 2 weeks back, you posted pictures of the car completely stripped inside out. Now, she's all ready to play!

Congratulations. What a special car, and great to see her back on the road (the previous owner must be ).

What all stuff is pending from the mechanical point of view? Again, instead of further modifications, I suggest you spend all you can in getting her to mechanical precision. You're lucky to own a car that is so damn fast in factory trim itself.

Also, once you are ready to splurge some more, these kind of wheels would go a long way in making her look "with the times":

Thanks buddy some of you must of seen it at the parx super car show i had parked it right at the entrance. The painter and ks had all their employees focused on only my car at the time thats why it was done in a decent time. Ks takes his work very personally and makes sure every car is done very well. Nice to have a car enthusiast working on your car. He seriously does great work. For now im keeping the stock wheels for a while the gold looks great imo.

So the car is back at ks to do some final finishing touches and get the car tuned as well. If some of you saw the car in person i must say the car was only 60% completed. His employees had off this weekend so the car was drivable and i wanted it for the special ocassions happening in mumbai saturday and sunday. I will probably get it back sometime this week. I know some of you are probably wondering if I got to have some spirited driving with other cars. Soo far a newer porsche boxster and a fully bolted and z4 are on the kill list and the car isnt even at its peak performance level.

Its really good to see your enthusiasm but please try and keep the "killing" off the streets and on to controlled environment. You do not want to be in the news for the wrong reasons.

Here's a good opportunity for you to put the cars through its pace against a few "quick" cars... Hope you've signed up!

This RIMS look awesome .

@GTO : Totally OT , you should change your handle to GTO_5Spoke . . There are 10 second cars and there a 5 spoke rims . And your love for these 5 spoke RIMs is amazing .

I personally love multi spoke alloys from OZ . I think they would look fab on this fast car .
