a few days back, i went to the metro motors showroom and asked if they could import an evo VIII or !X for me. The guy some manager types came out of his cabin after a long time and tried his best to discourage me from doing so. "What is the point?" he said. " Where will you repair or service it? WE CANNOT DO IT AND NEITHER WILL ANY ONE FROM THE LANCER DIVISION. ARRE SIR THEY CANT EVEN SERVICE THE PAJEROS WE IMPORT. NO ONE HAS THE KNOW HOW!!"....AND HE QUIETLY SLIPPED INTO HIS CABIN....any comments!!

Yes. As a mature and understanding man he is right.

Its true though that you can get your Evo repaired and serviced outside. he gave you an honest opinion.

as young person I maybe discouraged but imagine buying such an awesome car worth around 20lakhs and not getting proper parts and maintainence.


Anyways the cars is awesome.

Hello V-16,
I totally disagree with the manager.I have customers here on my place that have stopped going to Metro motors because their staff in the service dept is not good.
They dont have have good diagnostic tecq.
Besides I have trained with Jagaur in USA,and very well versed in electronic systems on a car.
Now the real story!

I am doing a evo 7 here on my palce in mumbai.I have all the workshop manual and techniacl service bullitein issused by Mitsubhishi Motors Jp. for the evos.
I am making the car here,not like other people who want their car made in another country.

I CAN take care of an EVO right here in Mumbai!

After you check out the car, the sales person asks you what you would like to see on the Cedia. The car will be at Popular Cars showroom till the 22nd of November. I suggest you guys go and take a look

Checked out the car today. Sadly the guy who was explaining to me abt the car was more interested in getting his feedback form filled rather than letting me see the car. The car looked very good. According to "him" HM is gonna "make" a new car based on the feedback given on the basis of the IX. The car's gonna be called the "Lancer" and will be priced in the region of 12-14 lakhs.....Sheeeee.....come on who would pay 12-14 for a Lancer. The car would be launched in 4-6 months. Wow....That seems to be real fast. Conduct a survey...take a feedback for a month and there...in 4 months ur car is ready. And whats different, it would be name "Liquid" or "Solid" and it has a chrome strip running the center of the dash and new bumpers. Thats ur 12-14 lakhs Lancer. Why conduct a survey when the same look Lancer is going to be launched here. Obvously based on the feedback they are not gonna change the look of the car except for omitting certain options. Have taken some pics. Will post them later.

I dont quite understand this. What do you mean by that you are making the car here. Are we given to understand that you are manufacturing a EVO IX here in India. Also what does it mean when you say people want their car made in another country. All EVO's are made by Mitsubishi Motors only.
