Mitsubishi Legnum VR4 Type S JDM car
imported 2007. If you are reading this I
will assume you know what these cars are, if not google it to find out, they
really are something special. At least
280BHP, feels like more, twin turbo 2.5L V6 with full time four wheel drive and
an active self learning adaptaive fast changing auto gearbox. It’s a kind of slightly laid back comfy estate version
of an Evo.
The car is very clean all round inside and out as well as underneath. No rust evident anywhere. There is a big pack of receipts and info with the car and a spare key and immobilizer key. It’s MOT’d til November 2017
I bought the car two years ago as a practical performance car (after my daughter rocked up) and as that’s as long as I ever keep anything its time for a change. (That’s the car that I’m selling not my daughter)
The car is a facelift ’99 Legnum with the Invecs 2 auto box. It has a ticker tape marker showing 125,000 KM approx., which I take as the Kilometrage it had done on import. Its currently showing 172,590 so I guess the balance is in miles. It is adding them on in miles now. This will go up a little as the car is still in use.
It has coilovers fitted some time ago, these are adjustable at the top mounts, which all work.
The car was converted to LPG by a former owner, it is a STAG system and has worked flawlessly in my ownership. It starts on petrol but switches over within about 30 seconds of firing up so it uses almost no petrol while theres gas in the tank and the is absolutely no difference in performance on gas or petrol it feels identical. Its good it has it too as fuel economy is not its strong suit. I get 15 – 18mpg on gas just knocking around that goes up to 22 – 23 on a run. But that’s on gas at 52p per litre. Its filler is in the fuel cap so you cant see its LPG and the tank is in the spare wheel well. Takes 50 litres from bone dry.
I spent quite a bit on the car when I bought it. I had the calipers refurbed and painted, fitted new discs and carbotech XP8 pads all round. So you do get some dust and a few squeals, but once warmed up the brakes are superb. I also refurbed the alloys and have fitted Uniroyal Rainsport 3’s all round.
Its been totally reliable, the engine is spot on.
It has a CD/MP3 player fitted which works.
Down sides: Red AYC light is on all the time, that means its not working. Its fine to use the car like this according to my mechanic C1R in West Midlands. They are Evo specialists so ought to know. Usually this light means the pump needs replacing that pumps oil into the AYC unit, that’s worst case, it may be something easier, I have not had this checked since it came on. The car works spot on without it, I don’t drive it that hard and I have not noticed the difference. AYB is just a trick electric diff to prevent oversteer, but with these tyres you can hit any corner quickly and there is no slide, so I have been in no rush to fix it.
Also there is a small amount of engine oil weeps from sump case and transmission oil from somewhere. Each needs half a litre every 2-3K miles. Its not much, and does not drip onto your drive, but is just enough to continually coat the chassis behind it in an oily mix to help prevent rust, so I have left this.
It is in very good condition but it is an 18 year old car. There is always a job list on any used car, I am happy to point out to any prospective buyer what I would do if I were to keep it and wanted to spend more on it. It is due a service by time, ie annual, not miles this summer.
