customer feedback

2002 Mazda RX-7 Type R Bathurst

I thought you might like to know that I collected my RX-7 last Friday.

I would like to thank you for your all your work, especially on the Japan side. Your opinions on selecting a car were pretty much spot on, it's almost like you knew what I wanted better than I did.

The car has exceeded my expectations and looks so much better than in any of the photos. In particular the photos seemed to make minor imperfections look much worse than they actually look. The body and interior are in pretty good condition for its age.

Mechanically everything is running fine, I had some servicing done whilst it was at the compliance workshop but it seems as though it has generally been well maintained by the previous owners.

Thanks again I'm really happy with the car and glad I got you help me choose, buy and import it.

Pics and info for:

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 5 (CP9A)

The first CP9A chassis type Lancer Evolution, the EVO 5 was built with Group A rally class rules in mind. Fender flares were added to allow greater track and wider 17 inch wheels, and suspension was completely reworked. An adjustable aluminium rear wing was now included, and Brembo brakes, Recaro seats and a Momo airbag steering wheel were included with most models.

EVO 5 power was now at 208kW (280hp) and weight was kept low true to the EVO racing heritage, making for a very quick car indeed.


MODEL LINEUP

Evolution 5 GSR
The standard EVO with Brembo brakes, Recaro seats and Momo airbag steering wheel. This model is allowed for import
Evolution 5 RS
The model intended for race use. Made 100kg lighter with optional aircon and power windows, no airbags, plus other changes. So strong is Mitsubishi's assumption that the RS is for race use it comes with standard Mitsubishi Cedia seats and brakes since for competition use these parts would be replaced according to the owner's wishes and requirements.
