    • 1999 Toyota Chaser 2.5 Tourer V ( X100)
    • 1994 Toyota Mark II 2.5 Tourer V (X90)
    • 1997 Nissan 180sx Type X

    -Will be using it daily and for drifting.

    -Price of 180sx and X90 has the same price
    the X100's price is a little higher.

    -This will be for a new driver(just got a license).

    I don't know where you're from,but if it's the uk and you JUST got a license you might find insurance difficult.
    That being said i'd pick a uk s13 cause they're cheap.

    Buy the most expensive and powerful japanese import you can and when you crash through a house, you'll know.

    There is no amount of abuse or advice that will be as effective as that. There are also millions of threads asking the same thing.

    Are you aware the price of the Shakken Test for these cars is pretty steep with them being older?

    I've no idea about insurance in Japan, but my advice, buy something cheap and skid it. What is the going rates of the cars you posted about?

    If your being serious, buy a Chuki 180sx, no point in hunting for a proper type x. Just get a cheaper one and skid.

    Oh and Cades, yes it is. Yes it is.
