    Considering my first post was in the for sale section, here is an introduction to my Mitsubishi Cordia.

    Long story short, this car has been in the family since the mid 90's. It was destined for the scrap heap after a front end accident & being off the road for 2 years too long.

    It's now on the road again as my daily & slow restoration project.

    Exterior:

    Tinted side indicators, Colt clear lens bumper lights, GSR front tow hook, genuine Mitsubishi headlight covers, reconditioned Black bumpers & lower skirts, factory mud guards, window tint, GSR rear spoiler, GSR front lip, Saxo Yellow foggies w/ stone covers, Hella 118db Supertone horns, Gloss Black hatch, re-painted wipers/cowlings & side air vents, tinted AB tails, bonnet/guard/grille/nose cone/light surrounds all replaced with better condition items.

    Engine Type: 1.8 4G37

    Engine Mods: 10mm top gun leads, Bosch platinum plugs, new radiator hoses & clamps, new RH drive shaft, replaced engine mounts, newish steering rack, new battery, rad cap, few bits & pieces sprayed high temp Gloss Black

    Diff: Stock

    Brakes: Stock, cleaned & painted Black

    Suspension: King springs all around, Monroe GT front & rear shocks, Super Pro Polyurethane Sway bar link Bushes, new CV Shafts

    Wheels/Tyres: JA Starion 14 x 6 +18 factory wheels (195/65/14 all round), Black open end lug nuts

    Other Mods: Artic White Halogens w/ heavy duty harness

    Stereo: Alpine headunit, factory cassette player & new rear speakers

    Build Period: Early 2011

    Cost: Reasonable

    Future mods: New front & rear sway bars, GSR front brakes, replace ALL bushes, headers, fit the A/C etc. etc.

    They did, until apparently they crashed them all due to the torque steer that these were renowned for, haha.

    No chance you know the name of the wreckers ?

    Best to send Rob a message maybe. I've always had a soft spot for these, problem is they always seem to be modified wrong. Glad to see this is being taken care of. This is 114.3? MA61 wheels on this would be cooool

    Cheers man, it's unfortunate to see that most that do show up on the web are completely riced out. There are a few guys on the forum though who are still kicking around that have done them correctly to begin with which is a relief, they should post on more forums.

    I'd love a set of MA61 wheels for this ! The stud pattern is indeed the same, they just seem to be impossible to find !
