Just go get some globes from Mitsu Model MR444536 and install yourself. Pretty damn easy, done it a few times and only takes about 5 - 10 mins. One time one just turned out to have rattled loose.

Here's a guide on Evooz:

Must have to be a member.

It is real easy though and I can help with any questions if need be. Happy to show you although I live South.

You can get the globes from Mitsubish.. Just go in and give them the number and they'll have them. They told me they didn't have anything Evo so I said look up the number and sure enough they're the same.

Yeah just need to get it out. Need to take off steering surround, the bit above the cluster and the ACD switch. Should be two screws holding in and then it pops out. Bit of a fiddle to release the harness's but not too bad.

Front bar off. You can apparently change the bulbs through the wheel arch but it was too tight for my liking and you'll need to mount the ignitor (if not OEM) so just take the bar off. It's not too hard just don't loose any clips. Once you've done it once it's pretty easy.
