    Nice motor - look a bit dated these days but still an awesome car. What colour? Let us know how often you have to change the clutch

    I really like the TME, I think they look how a rally car should look.

    Nice.

    Well done mate,best evo ever made in some peoples opinions.Is it a red one?
    As for looking dated....jesus it a rally legend and probably the hardest looking car ever built.Get over to the mlr and get on some trackdays and sprints with me.

    Cracking car... If it wasn't for the upkeep of them, I would have one!

    Whats the difference from that and a GSR ? I know the paint job and a few cosmetics, but is there and power wise? I'm sure i was told once they are the same but the TME has a titanium Turbo??

    I am jealous though!!!

    Insurance with pace ward,it's like the mlr club insurance.mods are actually covered like for like.
    Launched as a limited series model to commemorate rally ace Tommi Makinen's prodigious feat of winning his fourth consecutive Drivers' Championship in the World Rally Championship. The Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition was also designed for optimum performance on tarmac and features interior and exterior trim reflecting a WRC theme.

    Road performance was improved with a high-response titanium turbocharger giving better low-end and mid-range torque, using a smaller, shape-optimized compressor wheel. (Standard on GSR; factory option on RS). A different exhaust system was also used, unique to the Tommi Makinen Edition. Handling was improved too with a front upper strut brace and the tarmac suspension was lowered by 10mm and tuned to give improved initial response on tarmac surfaces. The quicker steering rack from the RS models was also fitted for more responsive steering.

    The front bumper featured a new powerful design that improved aerodynamics and lowered air intake temperature to stabilize power output characteristics. The front bumper extension brought further improvements to aerodynamic performance with redesigned airflow ducting.

    17-inch alloy wheels were used that share the same design as on Mitsubishi's WRC Group-A works car. To further compliment the WRC theme a Special Coloring Package that reproduces Mitsubishi WRC Group-A works car detailing was available as option on the GSR. The package comprises: WRC stripes, Ralliart decals (on ends of front and rear bumpers), Mitsubishi 3-diamond decal on ends of rear spoiler), upper wing section of rear spoiler finished in white, rear panel garnish, body-keyed door sashes, amber front indicator lenses, door handles finished in black

    I had the 'normal' 6 and it was awesome.

    One bit of advice. Don't thump in the clutch thinking it is like an Audi one and will last - it won't and will cost you 3k to get it fixed. Be gentle with her and she will love you!

    I read your threads when I used to browse this site (at the time had an evo myself). The tuning and the guys spend on the MLR is mental. I think you'll fit in very well ! Good luck with the TME.

    What an excellent car choice, one of my good mates picked these up a few months ago, it is great fun, love getting that back end out, really great handling car, few issues like the AYC pump playing up, but just to let you know, good place near gatwick airport, cheap second hand parts for Evos if you need anything, have you been to seen the RG motorsport guys yet in kent?

    Very nice seen a very simaler one in stockport yesterday, would probably lose that HKS induction kit though, well known for bad filteration, Apexi dry cotton filters are apparently much better

    You dont waste any time mate! Good to see your holding on to the enkie's for resale time for all them purists. Crikey those advans must be really light as the enkies are supposed to be light and youve gone up a size, the advans do look good, the anthrecite really works on that car.
