Hey guys,

Figured I'd introduce myself. I just recently got a deal of a lifetime on an Evo X 2012 MR, it's actually stick shift and not auto :) best part. It's only got 5k miles on the clock, and only a few mods to it. Besides all the crazy ones that are included on the car.

mods
-5% tint all around minus the windshield.
-All season tires on black rims, car is Wicked White.
-Angel Eyes headlights.

that's about it so far and more to come once I actually go get the car tonight after work. I don't have any pictures till later tonight so I will post those up as well.

Looking forward to being a part of the community!

my b, i'm from willoughby hills. northeast ohio. i don't have any pictures of it right now, picking the car up tonight after i get out of work.

i was told it's an MR that was a demo car and that it's stick shift.

is there something on the car that i can look at that confirms that it's an MR? (you know besides the MR on the back of the car?) I also looked it up and earlier 2012 models said to have come in manual before they switched to the paddle shifters.

Doesn't seem right... are you sure its not a GSR with the MR badge on it?

Hope that's not the case if they made you pay the price of an MR :X

But either way congrats!

2012 with 5,000 miles? what are demo cars used for? i agree with the MR/GSR confusion, unless they had some kind of SE package no one knew about.

paddle shifter would be the definitive feature. maybe the trim around the grill too (chrome=MR).

I don't know if you guys want to know how much I paid for it. Let's just say I didn't get it from a dealership. Got it off my buddies fiance for practically free :p, 14k flat. I'm getting the title for it tonight and we're signing it over on Monday.

I tried texting her for the vin so I can confirm if it's an MR or GSR. She told it was a fully loaded MR and that she bought it new with 150 miles on it, it was someones demo car at a Mitsu dealer. I asked her if it's stick or auto and she said stick. I even went further because she's a female and asked if it has 3 pedals or just 2, and she said 3. Sooo....I get to see the car tonight. Can't wait for work to be over.

I bought my MR for a little over 60,000$. I bought my Lancer DE USED with 55,000km for 14,000$ -.-.. bastard lol.

It is a GSR, I assure you that unless the original owner did some wacky stuff to the car.. that it will have two pedals, two paddle shifters and P, R, N, D not a stick. Either way, nothings wrong with having a GSR bud! If you like driving stick.. its the way to go!

yeah haha, that's why i didn't want to post the price on it until you guys asked :p

i can't justify owning a sports car with an automatic. I need it to be manual lol.

thank you thank you. my mind is already racing on what to do to the car once I get it. Can't decide between exhausts, they all sound so good haha.

edit: i wish the akrapovic one was a little bit more affordable, i got a budget of 4k to work with and that sucker would cost a little bit over half of that. sonuvabitch.

if it is badged as an MR, but it's a stick, and that cheap... please tell me you ran the VIN and carfaxed it. It would be tragic if this ended up being a Lancer GTS that is body modd'd and re-badged, etc.

Congrats if it's exactly what you want though!

Dose it have a large wing spoiler or a lip spoiler if it has a lip spoiler it has to be a MR unless they took off the wing spoiler.

If it has a large wing spoiler it’s a gsr, surly this car is the only stick The MR is auto

I know by working for Mitsubishi I see a lot of the evos come in and that is what they look like stock. Unless your from a different country
