hey guys,

Sold my s13.5 today and picked up this a few hours later.
Nothing to look at as its stock as a rock but she'll get there.
Not sure what colour to paint it as yet, as I was going to go gold again but the guy who bought my old car lives in the next suburb over haha.

Cheers
Raiss.

congrats man. as much as i love S13's, S14s just make so much more sense for the price, you get lower k's, sr20det guaranteed, and 5stud hubs, etc etc

cant wait to see it start getting modded

nice ride mate, love the S14's.

Thats true anth. I was going to drop a sr in my s13 and get 5studs but this thing came up at an awesome price. It's not the easy way out just a smarter thing to do.

I always was chavo :) just thought alot of people around canb would confuse it with my old car. My n14 pulsar was the same colour. It's like a black car, so hard to keep clean. Plus there are afew scratches here in there but nothing major.

sp33dys got the right idea :P

thx guys

Congz. S14a's the best ;)

Seriously, i don't mind abit of Bling spec. Before my white s14a, i almost bought a s14 series 1 with a set of bling wheels and it looks pretty good. As long as you have a decent bodykit to match it up, its all good. The worst of lot is those who cut half the front bumper off and let half of the FMIC dropping out. Factory high spec is nice, but u need at least a side skirt and a rear pod to make the overall pic looks good.

30-08-07, 12:20 PM
hehe i find it ironic that u had a s13.5 and now you've gone the car in between. seems logical, so the awesome price... a secret? or are you goin to share

type-x
30-08-07, 01:27 PM
S14a are excellent cars, less common than the S15, but literally the same minus the styling. Do whatever spec you want, everything has been done and im sure you can't please everyone, so make yourself happy. Green hasn't really been my thing, im more of a black pearl S14a person. Only seen 2 so far ! GL with it !

lol prob wont do to many engine mods yet. fmic and 3" turbo back are a given though. My mates old sr s13 had over 280 and was heaps of fun, would love a set up like that one day

lovesil - I ordered rear pods this morning, so they'll go on when it gets paint :lol:

Buddah - true tue, definitely a step forward though. I'll buy a s15 one day lol

type-x - I'm not feelin the green either :lol: I cant stand owning a dark car as I drive it almost everyday.

Thx everyone.

Had a chat to the guy who bought my old car today when I saw him at the local shops lol He is loving it so I'm really happy. :)

This is my favorite s14a factory colour. Don't even think about painting it gold.

What he said! Besides, what's wrong with green? :D

Seriously though, its true - my car has been daily driven since i got it in 2004, and dark colours are a PITA to keep clean. But at the end of the day, the cars for driving, so I don't let unavoidable stone chips and the like ruin the fun. If/when i respary, i'll give the 3M film a go, i've heard its quite worthwhile.

What film is this? I have access to 3M product so I might be able to look into it.

ORLY?! *rubs hands together*

OK, I'm still sussing it out, but at least one MX5 owner whose opinion i respect has had this done, and the results seem to be very good (Gary's SP is black).

Here's a thread on MINI2 which details the process. (http://www.mini2.com/forum/australia/96902-install-ozicozi-3m-vinyl-paint-protection.html)

Not sure exactly what the 3M film is that they use (most likely a trade secret)? There are sites in the US that sell it in bulk, I think you can link to them from the 3M website. (http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Scotchgard-PPF/Home/)

*AHEM* Apologies for the hijack Raiss. Back on track (road?), our club is doing a drive day to the ACT this coming Saturday, perhaps you would like to meet up?

Just because those styles of tuning aren't to your tastes doesn't mean there wrong.. Many prefer that style.
