I have recently moved to the UK, and my '11 Durango Crew awd 3.6 won't be shipped out of the US until about August to head over here. So in the meantime I ordered one of the cars I've been wanting that I can't get in the US. So next week a Japan only edition of the Mitsubishi Evolution 9 in Wagon form will be arriving. The fun part is that this wagon has about the same HP as my Durango, also awd... but about 1300 lbs lighter. I'm looking forward to having them both arrive and getting a pic of the big and little grocery getters side by side. In the meantime, here's a few pics of it right before it got shipped out of Japan:
It should be fun. I'm anxiously waiting for it to clear the UK customs now after arriving Thursday. It's going to suck when I return to the US in a few years, since it's not old enough to import I'll have to sell it here.
awesome car. This is going to be my "cool thread" pick on the DF Front Page!
Thanks! For an update I picked it up from Southampton docks this last Tuesday. Until I get the UK registration it's sporting the Japanese plate. Here's a couple of pics after getting it (sorry, it's dirty).
It's a nice runner for a grocery getter. Got the rear fog added and through the UK MOT inspection so the registration is getting routed through.
About to head back to the US and move house and family over along with the Durango. Got a couple of mods to add to the Durango such as a 180° thermostat for towing the project car through 7 states to where it'll be stored and a strut brace to help minimize the tire wear from all the roundabouts here in the UK.
