  1. Service history is of course useful That importer sounds like a prat. The history would have mileage and years on it that are easily read (even when the rest is in Jap) so at least you know if its been serviced regularly. And an MOT and SVA doesn't mean the car has been well looked after either. I've seen some right sheds that have gone through both tests. I'd keep looking...
  2. As Maleborn says make sure it's been SVA'd etc and is ready to go. Also, ask for a copy of the auction sheet and make sure it has a good full japanese service history. If you get the auction sheet and can't work any of it out give me a shout and I'll help. The sheet will tell you what grade of condition the interior and exterior was in at auction and will show any marks on the bodywork etc so you'll know if the importers had it repaired before you had seen it.
  3. The 4ws still works in reverse which is why theres the Rev/4ws button on the dash to switch it off when reversing. I found it made reversing easier and couldn't really tell much difference so if it's making parking difficult you may have a problem.
  4. Know what you mean. My Skylines arrived in the country now and I'm already spending money on it! Nice Supra coming soon here www.seafordcarimports.com on the stock pages
  5. You selling up as well? What you getting next Maleborn?
  6. That sounds like a great price for a 1999 one! landhippy, not interested in a 1994 then? Link below...
  7. They do seem a bit overpriced for the high mileage in my opinion. Keep looking theres loads around at the moment.
  8. Not a spot of rust on mine thanks to the Jap weather!
  9. Mine was dyno'd at 165 at the hubs so with transmission losses that should be 185-190 ish (most people seem to reckon for around 30bhp losses through a front wheel drive) at the flywheel. I reckon I could easily up that another 10 or so as I don't have a decat and by adding something like the Top Fuel spacer should see over 200 at the flywheel no problems. As has been said you could add the HKS cams and cam gears and get over 200 but it won't be cheap. Mine runs beautifully and gives a 190 a very good run for its money as it is which is why I've not bothered taking it further, and its now for sale to be replaced with something turbo'd. Other solution would be to buy an SS3 with a Beams engine as they're around 200 as standard.
  10. Mine are speedline. They've got a website here: http://www.speedlinecorse.co.uk/info/index.htm They're nice and light, but if you really want them why not just buy my car instead ;)
  11. pics of my Gen6 at the for sale link below....
  12. Is it an import? If so it could still be limited to 112mph
  13. Best to replace all the bolts anyway so when it comes to MOT time it's nice and easy to swap back over again! The rusty ones can be a pain in the ***** as maleborn says...
  14. That's lovely! Top choice, always liked the classic Celi!
  15. Blitz are fine (if a bit pricey) I prefer Apexi as they're reckoned to filter the air better (but aren't as noisy as Blitz).
