1999 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI

It has been rather hectic since the car arrived, so I thought I'd send you an email to say thank you for your work. The car arrived in Launceston back on the 10th, the day I flew to visit family for a few days. So I had to wait until the 15th before I could drive it! Then again, I had already waited 13 years, so an extra few days was nothing really! When I saw it for the first time, it looked right at home, parked between an XU1 Torana and a Andrew Miedecke's Ford Capri Perana Targa car out in the workshop yard!

I was very pleased to find the car literally exactly as described and as documented in your correspondence and pictures, right down to the smallest detail. I've had a lot of people ask me about my experience importing the Evo VI from Japan. Needless to say, I have no hesitation in saying my experience was an easy and hassle free one. Thanks for your fantastic communication, even though I was working inconsistent hours and was slow in replying, you were always on the ball, promptly and professionally.

This car is listed in the Featured section

This car may be from an export agent, Japanese dealer or some other source, it is listed here because we think it has appealing features or an excellent price. Circumstances will vary, but usually Featured vehicles are from a source where we can either have a car inspected prior to purchase, or is with someone who is able to send comprehensive and reliable information about it.

How to buy this vehicle

Please contact us and we will get in touch with the seller to ask for more information about the car and for more pictures. If the car is not from a source whom we necessarily trust we can then arrange for an inspection if the car looks promising.

Is this car eligible for import?

Yes, we have checked this car and it is a model eligible for import under the SEVS compliance laws. We have also allowed $3,300 for compliance, which is a reasonably typical compliance price available for this particular model.

Is the mileage genuine?

This car falls under The J-Spec Mileage Promise. This means the car will come with the original Export Certificate (sometimes referred to as the "dereg" document) which shows recent mileage and dates recorded for this car at the previous mandatory Japanese roadworthy inspections. This paperwork can be used to show that the mileage has not been wound back for sale to deceive you, and you will receive the ORIGINAL documentation for this.

In some cases a car listed here may display the mileage currently on the speedometer but the paperwork suggests otherwise and we will learn this upon getting more information about the car, and we would then inform you. Since you always get the paperwork you will always know if there is a discrepancy, and making sure you always get the correct and true information is why The J-Spec Mileage Promise exists. The original copies of this paperwork which you will receive is why a car bought with J-Spec acting as a consultant can always be trusted.


The details about this car have been provided by the seller of the vehicle, prices and details are subject to change, and J-Spec is not responsible for the accuracy of this information. All details can be confirmed if this car is looked into in greater detail.
