18-07-12, 10:17 PM

As many of you on here will be aware of, the time has come to unfortunately put my NB up for sale. The car has had a considerable amount of time, money and resources put into it to enhance it into one of the best specced NB in Australia. Over $42,000 spent on it.

Over $1400 of dyno time by Matt Spry at PITS

Supercharger kit fully engineered for QLD and NSW.

In the past few months I have upgraded to the following:
- Meister R dual perch coilovers
- Whiteline 24mm front sway bar
- Konig Flatout forged wheels (5.6kg per wheel)
- Lugshack Black spline tuner wheel nuts
- Kumho KU36 (these have only 1000k's on them)
- Full wheel alignment from Bruce at Leda Suspension
- Mazdaspeed Sport seat
- Supercharger cooling system upgraded (including a Bosch Ford Mustang Cobra intercooler water pump)
- MK3 aerial and manual aerial base conversion
- Clear side reflectors and indicators
- Clear rear brake light
- Upgraded gearknob
- New cam sensor
- Alternator replaced with a low k replacement

The car is in fantastic condition overall and needs for nothing. Bodywork is excellent and paint is great apart from the usual few stone chips here and there.

The engine is in brilliant condition too. It doesn't use, leak, or burn a drop of oil.

I also had a look at the brake pads (Red Stuff) last week and they looked a bit low so I replaced them with QFM A1RM's. (Absolutely great pads) There was actually quite a bit left on the old pads when I took them off so I will include them in the sale if someone would like a less aggressive pad.

The car originally came with NB8B wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres with plenty of rubber on them. I will include these in the sale of the car. I will also include the original NB driver seat should the buyer want to put it back to original.

I have also given the car an oil and filter change 100 kilometers ago with Castrol Titanium fully synthetic 5W-40 so all fresh and ready to go.

I have also just put another 6 months of Rego on the car.

Roadworthy will be supplied for any interested buyer.

Overall, the car is sure to impress anyone looking for a quick, tight, well specced NB that can be daily driven and is also trackday ready.

Looking for $17,995 ono.

Thanks for looking.
