Default MaxBhp's Mitsubhishi Cedia Sports - 27000 Kms Update

Around a year back I started hunting for a new car. My requirements were
1.Good handling
2.Stability
3.Emotional attachment with the car
4.Good perfomance (both accl and topspeed )
I know the third point is quite stupid but anyway I wanted to own a car thats been part of my dreams .
You know when you sleep off you wake up in your dream as a hero wanting to rescue Jennifer Connely from the bad guys in a fast car . Now for me that car was never a Ferrari. It was either an RS or a Lancer or a Mondeo (My favorite) or Cedia . .
After reasearching and talking to some of owners(Mondeo) I finally decided not to buy one coz it seemed too expensive to maintain. Its like a "sour grape" for me. So now the choice is b/w Lancer /Cedia/Skoda Octavia RS. Lancer has been around for long so the prosepectus of owning such an old car didnt go down well with my family so It was either RS or Cedia.

Took test drives of both the car .
RS is one awesome speedmachine . Its acceleration seemed brutal past 100 mark (higher RPM range) whereas CEDIA's unit seemed more relaxed but was equally rev happy if not better but in shear acc. stakes its no comparison to the mighty RS

Stability is another aspects where RS scores really high . The car feels rock solid at any speed . By this am not saying CEDIA is not stable but again it felt like RS was better.

HAndling......oh...oh......now this is one aspect I wouldnt want to compare a CEDIA with any cars in its price range coz its really mind blowing. . YOu can confidently flick around without fearing to loose control (for 80% of the drivers)

And the best part about CEDIA is , it makes even the worst driver in the world seem like he is the best(am the best example ). Thats the kind of assurance it imparts to the driver.

So finally the moral is the story of 'MaxBhp' bought Mitsubishi Lancer Cedia.

Wow! Congrats Max. The car looks menacing in the 1st pic!!

S-Drives are a very good choice. Hope you are painting the alloys matt black.

Cheers

HOTT! Congrats MaxBhp. Matte black alloys would look killer! Are you going to smoke the lights? And, what mods have you planned?

Not decided about matt/glossy finish. Tried PS ing the pic and this is how gloss would look like.

After reading your thread , I can hardly call my alterations as 'mods' . anyway I'll be doing very very very little mod for the time being. Am shifting to Delhi for my higher (thats one funny word)studies.

IMO, Matt finish would look hotttt! Smoking the tail lamps and side indicators would look good too.

Also, try and source the vortex generator strip from somewhere. With the wide tires, this would definitely look like 1 phat boy.

Just my 2 lincolns.

Congrats. The car looks immaculate. For the alloys would suggest hyper black colour.

Also, try considering 205/55-15 S-drives for the tyres. They should suffice rather than 215 which is not really needed plus the rims are not that wide to take the 215's.

Congrats max. It is just "WOW". Black looks damn good. The car seems to be in good condition. Why did the owner want to sell this?
