    Default New to me 2005 6 MPS

    First off, Hi and it's a great looking site you have here. Lot's of information and people who really know their stuff.

    Now onto the goods. I picked up a 2005 6 MPS in Liquid Silver about two months ago and it still makes me smile. Coming from a CE Lancer, this car is in a whole new league and really makes me enjoy driving again.

    I have a couple of plans for it (no major performance changes at this stage) including replacing the REM, and the diff mounts. These are more from a future protection point of view. At some stage a Hypertech will probably join the party, if one comes along at the right price.

    The most important thing at this stage is finding a good detailer. It is in quite good condition, but could do with some love. Once this is done I will upload some photos.

    Cheers

    Hi And Welcome, good to see another Vic Member.

    I run a bit of a side business doing exterior paint correction/detailing for various people, including several club members here. Happy to have a chat with you further if you like. Just PM me via the forums, or email me at caffeinefiend04@gmail.com

    Cheers,

    Dan

    PS. Regarding the comments about me having OCD, I'd rebuke them if only I could stop washing my hands long enough to type!

    Welcome I also have an '05 in Liquid Silver. I came from a CJ Lancer and although the MPS is 3 years older, it's definitely in another league like yours

    I'm from the Eastern suburbs, but can regularly be seen heading down Eastlink towards the south eastern.

    Just had a look through some of your threads, and it looks like you do good work and you care about the cars. I will be dropping you a line in the near future.

    Cool, if you see a Blue Gen 2 MPS gave it a wave, it is more than likely to be me. More likely on the Eastern freeway then Eastlink though.
