    I've been giving some thought lately to selling my S13.


    I'm chasing another R32 GTR and as you're probably aware they've become real expensive, real quick. As such I might have to part with the 180.


    It's got it's good points and it's bad so I'll get the bad out of the way first and if you're still interested then you can read the good.




    BAD:


    It's had paint in the past whilst in Japan. It's been done to a very good standard but it's been done.


    The lacquer on the spoiler has gone dull and there's some other lacquer on a rear quarter that's gone odd but not come away or anything. Look next to the aerial in the 3rd pic and you'll see what I mean.


    It's lacking power for some reason. I've not got to the bottom of it and I *suspect* it's down to an airflow meter issue. Basically it makes power on boost but is lumpy when at wide open throttle off boost.


    Rear boot hydraulic Rams have lost pressure




    GOOD:


    Genuine factory midnight purple type X. As rare as it gets and the only genuine one in the UK as far as we're aware.


    Full original interior in excellent condition.


    I wanted one that was standard inside and out that I could just get more power from without ruining the look with big wings and stripped out interior.


    Japanese coilovers. Can't remember the brand but they're adjustable all over the place


    Super advan 3 spokes (16")


    Apexi turbo, stainless manifold, elbow and decat that I bought from Mitch when he broke his ps13


    3"catback


    Genuine HKS fmic


    Hks EVC6 boost controller


    Apexi cone filter


    Strut brace


    Blitz dual turbo timer


    Nardi wheel and nismo knob


    Pioneer double din stereo


    Hid headlights


    Aftermarket front bumper. No idea what brand as I'm not up on kits.








    I can't stress enough just how clean and rot free it is underneath. It really is 100% rust free which is unlike 99% of most S13s out there.




    It's MOTd until next July and has covered around 115,000 miles.


    I'm the first uk owner and it came into the country last April (2015) from a dealership in Japan so there's no auction sheet grading etc.


    I've not got many pics and sadly those that I have aren't great.

    Price wise, I was thinking £6,500 was fair in this condition and being this rare.


    I'm located in Grimsby and available for viewings most times.


    Thanks.

    Messaged you yesterday. No reply. I guess that speaks volumes regarding how genuine a buyer you are

    Honestly mate, I'm not fussed :D I'll quite happily keep it. Took her for a drive today before cleaning it and just loved it.

    Thanks mikey but I was kinda hoping it was a Datsun Z you had. 350s are cool but too modern for me thanks

    I would love one, definitely on the car bucket list! As is this 180, keep us informed if it falls through with the guy tomorrow and I'll see if I can get something sorted...

    It already has. I've had a PM explaining that he can't make it over so it's still here for the taking.

    Thanks buddy. She's priced to sell so I won't be taking offers on it.
    It's rarity was the reason I bought it. I've no idea of the actual figures of mnp 180s produced but believe it's somewhere near 120 so I think it is the rarest you could find
