VRX's are basiclly the same as the MR's. But they skipped out on a few things to lower cost

Yeah they're not as common in the coupe. Guess they were a slightly sportier version. The VRX in the sedans was the equivalent of an MR coupe, but in the coupes it was sort of an in between the MR and the GLI I think.

I imagine to give people a 'better looking' interior (all opinion) without having to fork out the money for the MR. Different products for different peoples price ranges.

yeah thats a good point, so in context the vr-x is a gli with a partial mr interior? lol!

actually the vr-x is a gli. It's called a gli vr-x. Difference in the sedan is the vr-x has all the gli interior but its black, has electric mirrors, boot light, body lip kit, vr-x sticker, vrx rims, black carpet, leather door cards, cd player, 4 speaker stereo and probably a few minute things as standard. In the coupe version its roughly the same but it only has the 4G15 which is just a joke. Owned a few sedan vr-x's, my ce lancer of choice.

Yeah, I have one of these. basically a gli with alloy wheels, elec mirrors, tacho and the mr interior minus elec window switch, console with lid and cup holdyers.

Still had 4g15 power though lol, well until 2001 it did... Then they went to the 93!

Hey guys, sorry to dig up an old thread, but I have a 1999 CE VR-X and I have some scratches in the interior door trims in both back doors from previous owners, who probably had pets in the car.

I was wondering, instead of getting door trims from wreckers which won't be from a VR-X, can I do anything to fix those scratches up?

What I'm wondering is, what material are the door trims? Are they leather or vinyl? I'm talking about the whole door trim, the insert where it is usually cloth on other versions and the surrounds?

Was wondering, since it is black, could I just use black shoe polish to fill in the scratches and polish it up? Also, then can the insert be painted a different colour with normal leather/vinyl paints?

the CE2 style MR has a white cluster and the CE1 style MR coupe has a grey / black cluster

i believe the VRX is the cheaper version of the MR's... im not 100% sure but I saw a VRX CE Lancer on gumtree that had a 1.5l engine so im not sure if the 1.5l was a factory engine in the VRX or if a nascisist swapped it over lol... i originally thought the VRX was better than the MR but maybe not
