Ralliart 2010-2014

Postby fm79001 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 10:26 pm

Hiya,

Im looking at a few ralliarts ranging from 2010-2014 and hoping to buy in a few weeks.

Theres one that im really interested in at 57000kms for 26.8k do you think I can negoiate this price? I had a valuation done online and it said 24k or so was the lowest, so I was hoping to get it for around 24.5k? Since its with a dealer I'm not sure.

From these date ranges are there anything in paticular i should look out for? Apart from the transmission. Since its from a dealer im a little worried they're quite pushy.

I'm looking to mod this car - not anything crazy just simple mods like a tune, exhaust etc. I was hoping to get around 210-220atw

Tunehouse is where I would go for my mods as Ive taken my previous car there (corolla.lol) for servicing and they do a great job.

They also have a package called spec C i believe that comes with a full dump pipe exhaust system, their own air filter and a tune which they've mentioned would get me about 200atw a lil less maybe.

I want to upgrade the blow of valve sinve Im a huge fan in hearing the turbo spool from cars.

I heard a fuel pump upgrade would be pretty good but I don't know too much about that.

Its going to be my daily driver. So I want good use out of it? I just mainly want a lil kick when I accelarate and something that can help me overtake quickly haha, and some good power on the highway when I want to kick it up a notch.

Any help is appreciated. Actually if anyone lives around Sydney/ revebsy area it would be awesome if they'd want to actually look at the car with me. Since this is my first turbo.

Best regards,

One thing that helps overtske quickly is selecting the right gear and hold the throttle to the floor. Works for me didn't cost a cent.put the money saved on a turbo into sound deadening as mitsubishi decided to skip most of that to save coin

I would recommend you never accept the asking price.. Especially with dealers. Go to them and ask what their best price is. Usually they will try to do something for you, even if a couple hundred, or some extras thrown in..

I saved over $700 off the asking price for my Lancer, when I bought it. And walked away from another dealer cause he was a scumbag who had earlier offered lower, but then turned around and wouldn't honor that (the d***head also went on with some crap about having to sell it that day or it'd be traded to wholesalers, cause he was just going to lose money on it.. Alas, weeks later it was still there.. Schmuck :lol: )

Anyway, always try to deal down. Worst they can do is say NO, and you either accept their offer or walk away!

True
Dealer's always have wiggle room to negotiate

2nd hand vehicles have more wiggle room then new stuff as a general rule of thumb

Hi all.

Appreciate the replies!

Is anyone able to tell me what to look out for?

Im looking at a 2014 and 2010 model this coming weekend.

Any advice in terms of mods as noted above?

Best regards

Should be fairly solid . Usual stuff. Check it has had all routine services done in log book
Feel free to get an independent mechanic to look over it. Might cost a small $$$ for this to be done but peace of mind is worth it.
And the warranty they offer for 2nd hand vehicles they charge an extra few grand for on top of the purchase price isnt usually worth the paper its written on.

Ensure the warranty still holds and go for the 2014 if you can afford it, that is provided ks traveled is still reasonable
Make sure, get it checked by a Mitsubishi dealer, re warranty and cost of next service, if you are not purchasing from a Mitsu: dealer

Hi there.

Appreciate the advice.

Just in regards to your reply Shaun,they didnt say i would get 220 atw.thats just an idea of what I wanted. They mentioned that 200atw would be the possible outcome.

And yup i have arranged for a mechanic to look at it the 2014 model for me.

This. Recently purchased a '14 RA myself and when I plan to do work I'll be taking it to BJP or RP Customs. They're both really well known in Sydney for dealing with SST and iirc BJP has the fastest stock turbo RA in Aus.

Things to look out for are timing chain being stretched on the older models, SST fluid changes, and in general all fluid changes and servicing. I think AWC pump was an issue in older models too so you couldn't switch between gravel/snow or something. Look to see what fuel pump relay it has Panasonic black or I think orange are the latest. Oh yeah and that all warranty issues are up to date.

Have fun learning about it, there's a lot of info out there. There's also a fb group, if you use it, called Ralliart Revolution, with tonnes of info.

Yeah the one thing I wish I had done getting my used CJ was get a load approved else where first and then haggle on the price, but lesson learnt for next time when hopefully I'll be in the market for a good RA!

Bit off-topic here, but I notice that a lot of RAs tend to be Sportsback.. Don't see many sedans

Yours looks great there Rusko
