Mitsubishi Evo: Mitsubishi Evo X FQ-300 SST
A scolding warning chime was the centre of attention on our Evo this month
Not many miles, I know, but I’ve been driving other test cars. Sorry. The once-red calipers have turned maroon, though, the mark of a strenuously exercised Evo I’m told. It happened on last month’s trackday.
I’ve made a vital mod, too. I’ve disabled the intensely annoying seat-belt warning chime, a particularly unintelligent one which sounded as soon as the ignition was on and made me livid, especially if I had to undo the belt while manoeuvring into a tight spot hidden by the high tail. I always wear a belt and don’t need to be chimed at just so Mitsubishi can gain an extra Euro NCAP point, thanks.
