Not so much new, had this thing for half a year now, since I sold the FC.
It's a 95 model NA SW20 Bathurst
It's a comfy daily which I like to drive around in, also doesn't give me the fussy problems the rotar gave me with the petrol prices rising up http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/images/icons/icon7.gif
Bought stock as rock, did minor thing's to it that suited my needs..
stockies sprayed matt black, HIDs, RAZO gear knob, DVD H.U etc..
No major future plans for it as i'm pretty happy with it now
washed the car, fiddled abit with the camera and took some shots; hope you like them

Hey ram, how did you end up putting HIDs into the Sw, i tried with my one and it just didnt work, it's not the easy slip in bulbs and ballasts from the kits that are available on the market. For my one i think the whole globe needs to be changed. Is that what you did?

ram
08-05-08, 05:05 PM
Huh

thanks for the kind comments guys, appreciate it
the stockies painted matt black because I prefer it with black rims, but I had no money at that time (not that I do now.)
but that's only a short term 'look', will get a set of new rims ASAP.

also for the HIDs, I didn't have any hassles fitting them in the front spare tyre compartment. attaching the wires etc with cable tires.
didn't have to change the bulb at all, it was the set of H4s that I took off my FC

and yes, I do miss the FC heaps... but the maintenance was just too much for me
after all I'm still happy with purchasing the SW20 (with a colour I always wanted for a SW20.)
it was in very perfect condition, and managed to get it for a pretty good price http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/images/icons/icon11.gif

and for those who haven't seen the FC;

SUROK

Nice seat! You must have a small build, that seat hugs me in perfectly, and doesn't allow any movement.

Must be pretty powerful to tow in reverse!

FC3S
03-12-08, 04:29 PM
then it has huuge holes in its exhaust.

it is stock, apparently its got some rattling noise when reached up to 3000rev
not sure what it is.
planning to change it in the future tho

SUROK
06-12-08, 03:50 PM
yeah mine does that too, its nothing wrong with the car. but an aftermarket exhaust makes it really noticeable. mine used to sound like a touring car over 3000 rpm. :D
