  3. My dream is to convert a 240sx into a jdm s15 silvia. That means getting the sr20det (black or blue top, not red). I've seen jdm retailers that sell s15 front clips for a couple thou. They are my favorite cars period. However I'm more likely to do my second choice, making a straight line first generation talson tsi (or eclipse gsx, but they the same neway ;)). They are the best bang for your buck cars imho: 4wd, turbocharged (and the stock turbo is easily swapped out for the larger 16G blower) and cheap :). S15 Silvia's are the sh!t though.

    My dream cars in order of most reasonable...

    Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 8
    Nissan Skyline R34 GTR
    ...McLaren F1

    But for my current vehicle (93 Jeep Wrangler) I would love a new performance exhaust system and some new performance headers. A stronger axle setup and larger tires would also be awesome but that's something I can go without for awhile, hehe.

    My audi has High intensity Xenons in it - is that the same thing?

    As for Cars I'd like to own, Top of The list would be a TVR Sagaris (or any TVR for that matter). I'd also love an old Alfa Spyder, or a Triumph TR6 or something.

    Maybe some day ;)

    been looking into how much one of those would cost - worryingly little (apart from insurance)

    More realistically, i'm Getting this for one of my rc cars soon:

    [​IMG]

    OS .15 CVX - 32000 rpm :D

    New pipe + driveshafts wouldn't go amiss...

  10. Hardly. Skylines came out well well before the 350z (the r32, r33, and r34 gens were all out before) and they are completely different. The skyline is AWD for one, the 350z is RWD. Also the skyline uses a different engine (the rb series, the r34 gtr uses the rb26dett which is a twin turbo v6) even though some base model skylines are similar in hp to the brand new 350z. But that's mostly because their horsepower has been purposely capped with JDM (japanese domestic model) ECUs. I've heard a million times that japanese car manufacturers (in japan) have a kind of unspoken agreement that no car there will exceed roughly 290-300 hp stock. The rb26dett comes with 280 hp stock, but thats because it's been held back purposely. The skyline is a beast, and I would have put it on my list, except for the fact that any skyline you buy was made in japan, and therefore has been exported to your country, and at least here in the US they are simply too expensive because of that. A company called Motorex in california sells them (they do all the importing paperwork and such themselves, you just buy)but you're talking like $80k for an r34 GTR. Just too much.

    They aren;t that expensive so i wouldn't expect too much, but they do have a life time warranty...

    The length of time bulbs last seems to depend a lot on the car.

    When we had a Merc C class that would go through bulbs annoyingly fast, but the with the audi (which uses the same bulbs), one has just gone after nearly 2 years/55k miles. (annoyingly you have to get the garage to change it cos there's no space between it and the air filter and the airfilter doesn't move far enough even with the cover taken off) :(
