Hey, just wanted to introduce myself to all you guys who i havent already met via SXOC, for the most part, probably as im gonna be needing so much help and guidence over the next few weeks as i try to sell my FTO GR i'v had for the past 4 years in order to buy my first slivia S15. I was hoping to view a few this weekend but ended up working but plan to get out and about tuesday and have one sitting on the drive before the end of the month.

Bye the way, if you know anyone interested in buying an FTO, pls let me know. Cheers

Cheers Nicely,

I know you've spoke alot of sense the past few days with regards to importing myself but im gonna be pulling my hair out waiting the weeks and weeks needed to ship the car over and ESVA so im gonna go take a look at the S15 shown on the SXOC link, only having just checked over the images again, Alex has just posted to say he's trading it soon down in Southampton.

Wanted to get down there Sat but had to work so im gonna have to drop him a call early tomorrow moning to arrange a vist.

have u tried look at the one already in the uk so saving u the hassle of waiting as there are a few nice examples in the uk...as most of them compaines have standard parts to put them pass the ESVA otherwise u will find some hassle if u get a modded one unless ur after a box standard one?

I know the said car is pretty much standard but with the price tag compared to a few available from prodrift and torque i should have a few grand spare to start of making my own mark.

Can you recomend any good suppliers of parts for both general servicing and quality modification. I used to use funkyproduct.com for most of my FTO bits, and the do stock a minimal amount of S15 parts but nothing major.

:D :thumbs:

Standard S15s are good to buy :nod:

I'm a firm believer in getting everything I can from Japan direct. Nissan OEM parts are half the price and performance parts are considerably cheaper too...

I agree with waht you said about buting the car standard, for me its knowing you have a blank canvas to work with and everything thats done is your own work, although buying a car that has some mods can work out cheaper in the short term.

For what reason do you think a standard S15 is the right way to go, i know from the spec of ur car its far from standard, so i can only presume its for the same reasons as myself.

My car was totally standard when it was imported. Its the second S15 I've had. The first one was modified and it was difficult to actually know what had and hadn't been done. Its not so bad if its been modified entirely in the UK, as you can get a good idea of the work from the previous owner. Unfortunately if its a new import you don't know the previous owner, and if you did you wouldn't speak Jap... :p

Lightly modified is fine. No more than the exhaust and filter though. Once the boost has been played with, it opens a whole can of worms...
