This must be the Japanese version(290 bhp)as thats the fastest and cheapest way to get the car here quickly and the car is more expensive in the UK.

The UK gets the best EVO's as those are only meant for the UK market and are tweaked in the UK itself.

Yes, the 9 is still available.

This Mits, yes i've seen this one somewhere near Koramangala intermediate ring road.

Who its gone to ? I think this must be right now at the Master Tuner's house in Koramangala, Maybe the engine's getting blown up to some 1000 bhp or something.

Nope, this is an import got in through the grey channels.

HM : Anyone listening? Come on, get the EVO X. If anything, it will make your showrooms look better

Awesome machine. If only it was in Red, it would have caused neck sprains on the streets.

For the moment, i just have to content using it on GT5

You can buy them till stocks last. They are much cheaper too because they drop the prices.

What I meant was, its always cheaper to get the car from Japan because its available there before any other country since its just released. As you might know, everything is more expensive in the UK than anywhere else.

the car is more expensive in the uk because of the uk taxes...and any car is cheaper in the country that it is manufactured in!! plus the shipping charges from the uk will be a lot more than japan...and the car would arrive sooner!!
most of the car prices in the uk are crap and i personally dont think its worth it to import one from here...but its RHD here thats the only plus point!

I think this was the same one I saw near High Grounds this morning. Was a real head turner, once again IMO a darker shade would have been splendid.
