Hi there,

I'm Mark, I live in UK. Just bought my 2008 lancer GS3 back in March 2014 from a 2nd hand car dealership (which 4 months later I now work for them :). Its bog standard at the moment as I've not had money or time yet to do anything to it. The only thing I have on order at the minute is a square licence plate holder to go on the front at the side, like what the evo has. As soon as it's fitted I'll post some pictures up of it, which will be soon hopefully.

Mark

Cheers guys.

The GS3 is either 1.8 petrol or 2.0 Turbo Diesel. I've got the 1.8 petrol.

Managed to just edge ahead of a 2.0 Turbo Diesel VW Touran in a race from the lights :)

It's so they can make smaller engines put still pack a load of power out of them. In the UK running a car is expensive, with my 1.8 petrol lancer I have to pay £235 GBP per year ($382 USD) to the government so I can drive it on the road. With diesels you can pay as little as £30 GBP per year ($48.87 USD) and some are free. It's all the do with emissions and the more economical car you have the cheaper it is to run.

It's a addition what I put on from my previous car. It's a forward facing recordable camera.

I too have been looking for something exactly like this. I want navigation, without having a touch screen radio

I got it from a company called 'eonon' on ebay. They are based in Hong Kong.

I've just looked and they don't do it anymore. I've found this one from Birmingham (UK) 351078165768. Half the price I got mine for. It just clips over the existing mirror and connects through the 12v socket. It's only a recorder, it doesn't have satnav in it.

Here is my lancer GS3 and my mates Nissan 350z 3.5L V6. A couple of these pictures are just after we fitted the Evo spoiler and half way installing the mud flaps. I've only got shots of the rear of the car at the minute and what you can see in them, what I've changed are;

Evo X Spoiler

Vortex Generator

Exhaust Tip

Import Number Plate

Red Rim Protectors

Red Centre Caps

Red Mud Flaps

Hopefully I'll put some more pictures up soon from the side and front. So far it's been cheap changes as can't get big ticket items yet due to house hunting. Open to any ideas to improve the look.

Cheers mate. I know the mud flaps aren't to everyone's taste but I like them.

I'd love to get OEM tail lights for the back with the black surround instead of the red.

The black housing tails would definitely flow a lot better but everything else you have is looking brilliant. Like other's have said before, I too, enjoy the red accents you have going on the rims. Can't wait to see how your build turns out when you are done with it. How's that 1.8L get up and go?

It's quite good... Comparing it to a 1.2L. 141bhp and I think 0-60mph is about 9-10 seconds. Wish it came with a turbo or supercharger.
