    Hey y’all new to the forum but probably moving over to the UK here soon. I know y’all have access to s15s and was wondering the average cost to get one and is it even possible to drive them over there. I know it’s a drift forum but debating selling the skyline and getting an s15 over there and just wanted to know some of y’alls thoughts.

    Even possible to drive one?? Why would it not be possible to drive it?

    An S15 will cost you in the £10,000-£15,000 region, so about $13,000-$20,000.

    Isn't there a US law against imports being a certain age, anything newer than 25 years is illegal or something? Could be what this lad is worried about

    Possibly yea, still it's a weird law in their country, we don't have to put up with that kind of nonsense.

    that 25 year rule is such bullshit. It was basically pushed by a few Merc/Euro dealers who were getting annoyed by importers undercutting them on the price of cars. They claimed it was due to safety but it was all about makin' $$$ at the time.

    But anyways to OP. Yeah S15's are easy to buy and you can find them for sale in most cities in all sorts of shape. As the other user said typically it's between 10-15k depending on spec. But just a heads up the UK is similar to the east coast and cars rot here easily. So even though the car might look shiny and 99% of fresh imports are clean double check. S15's can rust just as much as anything else.
