@DrUg_Tit0: While the Niva is a great car and they are quite cheap (and nearly indestructible and can go bloody anywhere no matter what conditions...) its not really my type of car. I really enjoy driving and taking long road trips and while not being a fast driver and not living in the middle of nowhere a big sedan better suits my driving style, for instance something like this (and i would still have some money left over so i wouldn't have to live off stale bread and water for the next few years). But then again while i adore that car its a really bad investment and since im making about 7000€ per year now before i graduate and get a decent job instead of two shitty ones it would take a long time before i get that money back.

Its not that my Getz is a bad car i just have to get a bit better at dodging drunk executives in S classes and Hummers and annoying street racers in their civics and it will serve me well until january next year when its payed off.




@Lilith: If it werent for that line of text where you said its so low that's its interesting to get out of it in a dress (thumbs up ) you could have just described every nissan i have ever driven But since you said its so low im guessing that you got a 200SX (or a 240SX if you are in the US). That car is a bottomless money pit. I know a couple of people that wanted to make it into a weekend track car but every time they fixed something, something else went wrong. They went at it for a while until they got tired of wasting money and sold them. one bought an old M3 and the other an old 911. While they are more expensive to buy, in the long run both of those were cheaper to maintain than a nissan

I had a look at it this morning after going into work, from what I can tell it's not a 200SX as I was looking at those to buy about the same time I bought the Calais, its something he must have privately imported from Japan 6 years ago judging by the compliance plate which is an S13 Silvia. I thought they where normally 1.8L engines but this one has a 2L in it as stock from the factory so I'm a bit confused, from the looks of it there's not much that's stock in there, lot of custom fabricating, more tubes and things than normal... from the making noises like a huge vacuum cleaner, I'd say it's got a whopping big aftermarket turbo in there.
It does about 0-100km/h in about the low 5 second mark on road tires as best I can tell but I don't want it... I'll get booked too much! Stupid rice burners... stupid car, crazy owner...

Found an 850I BMW in the paper today with a 5L V12 in it for about the right price though, they're a sexy car but it's an automatic and probably horrendously expensive to keep on the road as well.

^^^ Silvia's all had the SR20det motors . The 180sx and 240sx had the KA series motors. The SR20det never came to North America. Only the non-turbo SR20.

You're looking at 2L + aftermarket boost (and a lot of tickets if you drive like me ).

It might have been a SilEighty which had a 180sx front end with a Silvia rear, but an s13 Silvia rear at that. If you post pics, I could tell you more accurately what the car actually is/started life as.

I used to have an NX2000 which had the wrong-wheel-drive version of the SR20, non turbo. It was a blast to drive.

I always wanted to put a blue-top S15 SR20det motor into my Miata, but I sold it before I could make it happen (moving to Europe).

The 850 is a hot car for sure. You're in Aus, correct? I'm surprised they didn't send any manual 'box cars there. We only got the auto's here in Canada as well which is a damn shame. Heavy car though. Look for a 540i Sport instead. You should be able to score one at a good price, and it will come in a nice, tight, manual 'box.

From Wikipedia
Ah, so it's the 1991 K's coupe I've been loaned, it's from japan's local markets, I don't think these ones ever came over unlike the 200sx's which seem to be a few of around.
Think the sooner I get rid of it the better because it's a lunacy...
The S15 ones, the 200sx are quite pretty.

There's a couple of 850i's with manual transmission but bit more than I want to spend, still sort of umming a bit over a few other japanese cars like the GTO's and GTR's, but think they might just be a money pit.

Ive driven both 850i manual and automatic. The automatic isn't as nice to drive as the manual but if you dont plan on racing with it the automatic isnt that bad of a choice especially if you have to tolerate stop and do traffic every day. The only thing to worry about is if the auto box breaks down. Over here the cost of repairing one is about 1000€ while a new one...well you could buy a new small car for that.
And then those old BMW V12 are a bitch to maintain. They are fine when they work ok, but again if they break down (its after all at least a 10 year old car) the amount of money wasted for repairs can come close or over the amount you payed for the car itself.
840i on the other hand is completely different. Both M60 B40 (1993-1996) and M62 B44 (1996-1999) engines are much more reliable, the later one being almost indestructable. If you combine that with a manual transmission you have yourself a car that will last a thousand years

Yes, it's one reason I've shied away from european cars for the last 7 or so years is that once their warranty is up, well they're going to skin you alive for spare parts. That and for what they are, over here are quite over-priced for what you get so I've been using the domestic manufactured Holden (GMH) cars for that reason. Parts are cheap and the upper end of their range has some nice luxuries in them, only problem is they depreciate so terribly it's not worth hanging onto them for very long.
The european's depreciate slower, but new I still can't really justify spending the money, they do get marked up quite a lot.

Probably look to the Japanese cars again and see what's around, what we don't get as a local import there are quite a few we can get in the grey-imports like that Silvia. So the Skylines, GTO's, Stagea's, Lexus' and others are easy enough to get over here near new and at a very good price, I just dislike the idea of buying something 2nd hand and unseen.

But, got a month or so to look around anyway. Something will turn up.

^^ Good idea to stick with Japanese cars since the parts will be significantly less.

I might shy away from the GTR, even though it's a mighty car. Finding a pure, unmolested example might be quite the challenge.

What kind of car are you after? A nice, mean grand-tourer like a Toyota Soarer, Skyline R32 GTs (the 2wd version)? Or something slightly smaller and sporty like a Sylvia (the s15 was my favourite for sure), Celica GT4, or an early model Honda S2000?

You guys in Aus get all the cool Japanese kit, in addition to your own homegrown stuff like HSV's and Falcon's.

With fuel prices the way they are (not sure what they're at in Aus) I might be tempted to opt for a fun little hothatch or early Mazda Miata (and then put boost to it).

Soarers, they're 'ok' (very common over here) but if I was going the Toyota route I'd probably think mid 90's supra, they're not a bad car, they're also a lot of car, very big on the road.
I've owned a GT4, it was ok, then some filthy animals stole it, loaded it on the back of a stolen tow-truck and bye bye, after that was a 300ZX TT.
Well, I destroyed that. My fault

Sort of grew up a little at that point and ended up with a succession of Holden Statesmans, which are ok, but basically a big luxo-touring car which is just too big around the town. HSV's for what they are never impressed me, awful lot of 'badge engineering' and bolt on plastic tackiness. As for their engines, they're good, but as sort of the ultimate piss-take to my last statesman I just took it in to a tuning house, few thousand later and it's making more power than a stock HSV for much less money.
It was very funny
I had a Toyota landcruiser in Africa and that was a good old truck, too damn huge, if you want something that'll take a few 7.62mm rounds put through it for extra ventilation and keep running... this is the car for you! It's not the car for me.

GTR, the R33's are coming down in price dramatically, the R32's are probably going to be hard to find without being thrashed to death so I'll avoid them. The GT's I liked, the R34 shape ones where not a bad car, not as nippy as the GTR with the fancy engine but no where to use a GTR as I don't have a CAMS race licence any more.
R34 GTT is defiantly an option, as is the S15, both cars I like a lot.

S2000's, just a little impractical really, much like an MX5. Lots of fun but just too damn small for anything bigger than 2 people and a suitcase at most.

So, probably the S15 I will have a closer look at.

So was anyone here an X-Men/Marvel Comics fan as a kid? My inner geek is still alive, and I decided to make a Shaolin_Z/Cable avatar for myself just for kicks. Not sure how long I'm going to stick with it though .
