The wife and I picked up a new car. Our previous car a 2002 Mazda Protege ES was wrecked and totalled out.



So we picked up our new car. Had to be shipped from another dealer.
2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart (aka Baby Evo)



So far not much done.
Tinted the windows (Just 20% - Good enough)
Strapped on some 225/40-18 Continental Snow tires to finish off Winter.

Future Mods/Plans
Find some wheels for the stock tires (215/45-18 Yoko Advan 180 treadware Extreme Summer Performance Tires) Probably Enkie RPF01's in black.

Thats all I get to do for the next 2 years.
After 2 years is up,
EvoX turbo and intercooler, intake, exhaust, suspension, ic piping, and a tune.

Wheels are 18x8 Enkie Raijiins 45mm offset.
Tires- 215-45-18 Yokohama Advan a010a's. (235 RS3s will replace these in the future.)



New wheels- next- suspension.
A couple different options, but not a big fan of lowering springs- leaning right now towards Tein Basics, bang for buck, but would love some KW Variant 2's.

We will see.

Well- this car is done for awhile.
Going this weekend to pick up another car. Just bought a 1974 BMW 2002 tii. More to come on the BMW, but for now the RA is done.

I must say though- I am not disappointed by the Basics. Ride great, looks good, handles better. Actually less bouncy than the stock suspension was. I don't know how much work Tein put into them, but I really like them. Spot on.
