History
Purchased by a Japanese businessman who wanted the image of a luxury car, but none of the cool features that set the Diamante apart from the competition. This 1995 Diamante 25V-SE was exported from Japan to New Zealand in 2003, and from there was owned by 6 "careful" "sensible" people, who "forgot" to maintain it.

It is a lovely car to drive, especially because it only cost $700, and with its 5 speed tiptronic adaptive gearbox, electric everything and automatic headlights it is the perfect daily driver. I bought it while my Passat was getting the clutches replaced with the intention of running it until it blew up, and I fell in love with it almost immediately.
1995 Mitsubishi Diamante (Gold)

Modifications

Drivetrain
A 6G73 2.5 litre that blows a LOT of blue smoke
Interior
Not the leather interior.
Exterior
Modifications due to the environment (peeling paint) and also due to other objects (dents and scratches)
Audio
A surprisingly good sound system, considering this Diamante doesn't have the touch screen GPS stereo or the optional 10 inch subwoofer mounted to the rear deck.
Suspension
Very comfortable suspension
Wheel and Tire
Factory Enkei 16 inch rims wrapped in some Goodyear Optilife 215/60/R16 tyres on the front, and some Firestone FO1 215/60/R16 tyres on the rear.
