Any thoughts on this car - I’ve bought lemons before [emoji522]



New Member

Complete Evo newbie here . Really wanted to join this club for a long time (21 long years of waiting and some of it spent in cold wet muddy welsh forests watching these dream machines fly past) [emoji26]. Kids and ex-wife almost extinguished the rally/evo spirit and drain all resources....but not quite [emoji123]. I’m hoping to buy a Vrs with some modification but to be honest although I’ve read quite a lot about them the aftermarket mods seem endless and complicated . So I need some help if possible . I’ve copied and pasted the description of the one I’m looking - if you have any words of wisdom please feel free to advice .
