I'm still in the process of registering it so i can drive on the road by the goverment here don't take kindly to you buying your cars abroad so they're making life pretty difficult. I'll get there soon hopefully then i'll be taking it to as many track drift days as i can manage!

If you don't mind, i would like to suggest a GTR style bonnet. The one with grill. I'm never a fan of a grill-less bonnet of the normal R32.

Slip slop an slidin your way from Nippon.

That's a pretty little taxi you got there.

I'm sure there are many a girl that wouldn't mind hoppinin the back seat

Thanks guys for the kind words :)

josh2.5 - all 4 archs have been rolled and flared anyway. It's really hard to get them to come across through the pictures but I really like what they've done with the archs anyway.

nismodified & lovesil - i was originally going to get the GTR bonnet and went as far as buying a grille but ran out of money for the bonnet. I still might get one one day but for now it's just not important.

A'PEXI - yeah, not sure on the skirts but i'm fairly sure the bumpers are Vertex, I just think it's a whole discontinued kit. It has some weird Vertex members plaque on the back window too :D

It's on the road now so hopefully I'll have regualr updates of work that is done to it. Next jobs are to sort a power steering/stalling problem and then up the boost slightly. I have some Apexi gauges to fit back in and some other bits and bobs.

Well took a while to decide what to do with it but finally decided on an RB30 built by RIPS NZ. Should be the first GTS with an RB30 over here and i'm very excited to get it back. Got a few upgrades since it's been gone but i just want to drive it more than anything.

I love this thing man, i really have to find out a good import agency or something. Because there are so many nice cars coming from japan.

I just hope these kinds of beasts are still around by the time i get enough money!

SO what is the rule with bringing in modified cars now? I thought they have to be compiled as stock? Or can you slip abit of money and bypass that or is it a 15 year rule?
