    I saw this car up for sale and would have loved it, if only I had the money!

    Is that yellow onevia the C's garage car? I do quite like it but personally I prefer the standard ps13. Thats just me though, if you do it well like the yellow one, it will still look pretty damn sweet!

    Ahh ok.

    Personally I like the idea of a onevia, just hate that bumper. Think it's something to do with the letter box hole and the fugly lip I don't like.

    Not made my mind up yet, just the spec the car was ment to have was a joke, it's got about 10% of what was advertised, if it wasn't for the fact I paid the right money I would be pissed lol

    Luck I have a 180sx that can lend a few bits..

    How about ps kouki :-) that could be cool :-)

    Totally sucks that the car hasn't got all the goodies you were told. I'd be asking for some money back.


    Not sure about a kouki kit on a onevia, don't know why.

    Thats looks fairly shit hot to be fair.

    I've got 2 sets of Koguchi Power front arches for my 180sx, so i may lend one to this project and order a PS13 rear pair in with kouki kit ?

    Could be mega cool.

    Guys help me out, What are the wheels worth that are on the car ?? What could i sell the genuine BN Sports type 2 kit for ??

    I don't get why you have a stock bodied car as a drift car, and this as a "practical daily".
    I'm sure you'll change it all though.

    Off to Wales we go!!

    Each to there own i guess :thumbs:

    I kinda like this car as is, although the aero is a little OTT for my tastes. What are the wheel specs Clarkzoid?

    Matched up with some less ugly wheels and that would be pretty damn sexy.

    Onevia would rock, I love them Personally but I would keep the BN Sports kit, they are for winners and one of the most tasteful 'Drift' kits in my opinion.

    Can you even get Kouguchi Power PS rear fenders?

    Update: Wheels

    Well it had 4 stud rears on it, so I've changed them to Z32 rear set up with handbrake cables :) Oh and I've added some 18x10 Rota Grids all round. (oh and bye bye stickers..)

    Needs to be lowered about 1inch and it will be mint.

    Improvement??

    Well I've just had no luck at all really, I bought the car with the following spec list as advertised.

    I can deal with the car not having most things, but i'm upset about the turbo being fucked and more so that its not a S15, because the turbo is welded to the manifold, I now have to buy a Manifold AND Turbo..

    The guy I bought it off I honestly, don't think he was aware of the fact the car was basically stock, but still he did advertise it with the parts which it clearly don't have.. so I don't really know what to do, I've sent him a polite message asking if he would at least give a little towards helping me get a new turbo. Fingers crossed because i think i'm being extremely fair tbh.

    I bought this car to use at AwesomeFest2011 and the reason I was interested was because of its nice spec, it had all the parts i needed to go and have allot of fun.. basically i was really wrong, it is just a stock PS13 with a bodykit.

    I've worked through the night to get the car upto a standard where i could take it and skid it, and after all the effort of getting it ready I rocked up to my unit and there was the power board in the carpark below mine replacing some massive cables.. "sorry mate power is off till Monday" ......... Electric front shutter door and the car is on the ramp at the top..

    I've been there all day trying to get the car off the ramp...

    To say I'm not gutted is a understatement.. No one believed i would make it to AwesomeFest, guess they where right not to believe in me.

    I'm now going to get extremely pissed at my local and find a slut and fuck her brains out. Peace.

    :smokin:

    Sucks about the power and the spec. I guess you can but talk to the guy about the price.

    On the brighter side, PS13s are horny. Daniels on the money (as per fucking usual), the C's garage car is fucking hot and they lairy yellow works for them with the cash money wheels and is a perfectly legitimate inspiration.

    Anyone who doesn't like silvias / onevias is devoid of any sense of style. Heres some pretty things.

    Gutting about the spec :( I did go and have a look at this car, with my limited knowledge I would of never picked up on the missing parts. Quite glad I didn't buy, Still it looks fully awesome and the guy seemed pretty sound so fingers crossed for you.
