I'm not a fan of the chrome but a can of Plasti-Dip will fix that! Overall I like the styling.

Even the back looks somewhat meaner, like they relocated the number plate to the bootlid again!

Love my lancer. Oh well to be discontinued, one good thing, my car wont have to compete with newer models.
Two things I really like is its sporty timeless design and decent size body and engine with no turbo although there is one
for those that want one and still 2ltrs. Not a pee farting turbo: that is just waiting to blow up.


Already some of the brand names that swung over to smaller engines for economic, not economical reasons
that don't apply in Aus: are starting to encounter headaches. Down the track those tiny turbo engine larger cars
are going to hit the wreckers yards a lot quicker. Why! who can afford to replace a blown turbo, costing thousands
of dollars for a car costing vertually only hundreds of dollars, so to speak
