right, hello evo owners. sorry i dont own an evo. or a mitsubishi for that matter :p

but have recently purchased a proton coupe. while insurance is still abit silly, the 1.8 mitsi engine will be staying pretty standard.
but i have plans to do an evo 2 front end swap and possibly respray it in Blurple


so far im spending time and money on sorting those little niggles that you have when you buy a car. and giving it a service. next ill be taking the front end off and giving it all a good rust proofing. then ill move on to collecting parts for the swap





:ninja: be gentle

lol if im honest i really do like protons. just moved up to this from a 1.5 hatchback version.
for now the extra 50 horses is proving enough. and i think much cheaper to run in every sense of the word. while getting insurance quotes for this (700 quid) i did get a quick quote for an evo 2 and it came back over 2.5k. plus the fuel bill would cripple me atm.

this might get a turbo at some point. but once the exterior is sorted

the mrs isnt on it this year, cheapest i could get with her on was 1300.
im happy with the proton anyway, and as i say living where i do means some insurers wont even touch me
