Step one of course is to find a new or used Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for sale in Edmonton. Once you have your new toy we need to know where and what we’re searching for. Certain advantages come with buying new parts directly from a retailer but a huge amount of money can be saved by looking for pre-owned parts online to put on your Lancer.

Remember that when you are searching for any used Lancer Evolution parts that there are certain parts that will be very difficult to verify if they are in good working condition and may be better purchased new. Easy to buy used parts include mufflers, body panels, and sport tires. These can often be verified with a simple visual inspection for holes or tread if they are mounted on the vehicle already. Keep an eye out for people in the process of upgrading their Evolution if you are looking to replace any stock parts that have seen wear and tear on the pre-owned one you purchased.
