View Full Version : My Car -180

18-07-07, 03:43 PM
Hey all,
Below are pics of my (formerly) Suzuki Swift Gti, and my Nissan 180sx. Wish I still had both as the Swift was so fun to drive, but had the urge for turbo so here's the new one. I love the 180 but there's so many things that I want to do to it to get it to the stage I'm happy with, but that will have to wait till the funds come back.
When I get some better shots of the 180 I'll post them up too.

First the Swift

Of course the 180 is a much better (and prettier) car in every way, but...
Gooooo the Swift!! :mrgreen:

Yeah.. the 180s great.. but with the swift.. you know how it is when you get a first car. Doesn't matter what it's like or how many headaches it gives you.. it's still fun to drive and sad to see it gone.

Yeah arron, the tri spokes are nice. need a bit of a freshen up though, too many scratches on them.

Yep. I was on redline as well.. and still go back there to look once in a while.

What's done... not too much (all as when I bought the car)
3inch cat back exhaust
k&n pod
front and rear strut brace
autometer cobalt boost gauge
blitz twin sbc
turbo timer
momo pivot steering wheel
razo gear knob (that really needs changing)

What I have planned - Nothing in too much detail yet.. but definitely clean up the look a bit with different set of rims (all 4 :P), new suspension setup, finish of the exhaust to make it turbo/dump pipe back, and possibly front mount, racing seat and maybe ..just maybe some skirts and pods.
However.. as stated here or in my intro thread.. i'm not made of money, so all in due time. Still paying off the last bits of the car.

Some more photos... still only in front of my house. Hopefully will get around to taking some shots in a better location.

love a good clean white 180. reminds me of my last 180 when i first bought it.

Bet all your neighbours hate you with that big muffler in a couryard that would create such large echos :P Looks good though mismatching wheels have never been my cup of tea.

actually it is fairly quiet at idle... my swift was a lot louder :D But yeah.. I get what you mean, too bad for them :P

Just an update to this thread - I've made a few changes, nothing fancy though. Finally got around to changing my gearknob to nismo leather gearknob, changed front brakes to ebc greens, added a front lip and HIDs. Also changed the front side indicators to black, although one has already broken and is stuck on by single sided tape rolled up (too cheap for double sided tape). The front lip is not fitted properly yet and I still need to seal down the sides as there's quite large gaps if you look up close. I love how it makes the car look at night, especially with the brighter white lights.
Also added JDMstyletuning and circuit club stickers - represent YO! haha.
I'll add a few nicer pics soon, but these are a couple I took with my phone the day I attached the lip and HIDs.

Love the lip dude. Is that the topstage one you were looking for earlier?

10-12-07, 10:06 PM
great stuff!!

yeah it's the topstage lip. I received it ages ago, but never got around to fitting it until Saturday.
