    FS: 2008 Evo, w/ brand new OEM crate motor, perfect paint, volks, minimal mods

    SOLD SEPT 13th 2017


    My evo has been for sale for 6 months but im not getting serious people. I have one potential serious buyer but i'm wanting it sold sooner than later. Posting it here because i know some have friends who want evos who might be within one state of me.

    Please read my Autotrader ad for more pictures and a much more detailed background on the car. Additional questions via PM here or their via email - i am not afraid of typing essays, be as specific as you like.

    The autotrader link to this ad can be found here: http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...searchRadius=0

    I AM NOT INTERESTED IN ANY TRADES AT ALL, DONT OFFER ME YOUR GARBAGE HONDA OR 240SX. IM DONE WITH JAPANESE CARS.

    Details:

    I am the second owner, I originally purchased it used with 1950 miles in 2010. It's been exclusively used as a daily for 6 years before i did my disaster build.

    2008
    Silver
    SSS package (Rockford system, HIDs, curved roof)
    Aero package + one spare driver side skirt, painted from factory

    OEM new crate motor purchased from Works Automotive in CA in December 2016. Swapped in 2 weeks later. It has about 70 miles on it, i haven't even changed the factory fill yet. Prior to this i had a 2.2 build that went boom for those who dont know me.

    Volk TE37SL in 18x9.5 +22, wrapped in 265 Super Sports. These have 60% life left.
    H&R street coilovers, 8k/7k w/ Vorshlag plates/bearings.
    Agency Power rear arms
    Coltspeed rear cross member braces
    Beatrush rear tower bar
    Hotchkis rear sway bar & their end links
    Carbing front roll bar
    & a Carbing front ladder brace is included as well - but was not reinstalled during swap.

    Basically a glorious street/tight mountain setup with high oversteer and a rigid rear end that you can actually daily.

    Many other things interior wise, but no serious power mods. Has a UR 3" dual exit with 2000 miles on it, and an SC 3" test pipe currently installed. These go with the car. The OEM cat is INCLUDED too.

    The car is not currently tuned, the bay is literally as boring as any other stock bay so that is why i didnt bother taking a pic. If it's absolutely necessary i will take more pics, but this car is currently stored in a private garage about 20 minutes from where i live, under a car cover, so i have to plan for it.
    Issues it has:

    AYC does not function. The hydraulic lines have been looped.
    SRS / Airbag light on dash for 3 years.

    I believe the above two are DIRECTLY related to eachother. My guess is the SAS sensor. A re-calibration might fix, buy my dealer wants to charge absurd amounts (like $1200) to press a single button for 5 seconds, so im not bothering with trying to fix it anymore.

    Driver window switch is no longer automatic, button must be held down to close window.

    GL Man. I'm not sure if my new garage has the emotional stability to handle two evos constantly torn apart in it.

    Its all flakes thus far. 14 people in my phone who've hit me up, 3 of them told ME to drive the car to THEIR house to show them. 5 more told me they suddenly dont have the cash. 4 wanted me to drop the price to <15k "because my friend is a mechanic and knows these things". 2 told me it "sounds like a scam" without bothering to physically show up. Rest either bought a lexus, mustang, broke ass E36 non-M car, or an acura. I dont understand this new prospective evo community, none know what this car actually is. Some seem to think it has a V6, others seem to think its a luxury sedan, and a few were surprised it didnt make over 400 stock (like wtf??). One thought it was FWD.

    Selling an evo is completely awful, more of a reason to never buy one again. 9 months and only 3 people physically bothered to show up.

    You need a picture Trump on it and then list it for sale on the Daily Stormer and it'll sell quick.
