So far I've bought/installed;

- New tyres for my nismo wheels (had legal tyres on the stockers but they're uglyyyy)
- Nismo engine and gearbox mounts
- Slotted front rotors (current ones are lipped pretty bad)
- Stereo gear I already had (going to steal the sub out of the commodore too, I only get to crank it when I'm alone in the car and now if I go somewhere alone I'll take this thing)

Currently on the wish list is an ECU + injectors + tune, and after my trip to the skid pan I want to replace the garbage VLSD too.

hahaha nice one splash, I knew it would make dorift mad.

I have been out diving this weekend, Maleny, Montville etc, and I just have memories of redlineAU cruises. We we parked, we we ate, where we talked shit, where we experienced drama or got speeding tickets hahaha.

I miss the old days too and everyone having nice cars :( Who decided to get old?

So far I've been pretty lucky with getting parts for good prices

I got a second hand HKS GT-SS turbo for $330 on eBay - it's only a fraction bigger than stock but it's ball bearing and seems to spool up even faster
Tyres were $99ea from Hackett's ;)
Found the Nismo mounts brand new on ebay for $250 from someone who bought them but never installed, normally they're $330+
GSL rallysport advertised a 1 hour sale on Facebook earlier in the week with 20% off all rotors in stock and free shipping

How difficult is it getting the girls in and out of the backseat?
Half thinking about buying another one, even though it seems completely ridiculous.

Pretty easy actually. They mostly climb in and out on their own, especially Marika (but she's 5 now).

I can actually reach back from the driver's seat to do the buckles.

Skids all day saturday, taxi to dance rehearsal Sunday:

Hmm.

Only one I've seen recently was out of my range. But it was fucking mint.
Too many of them have been raped.

Must admit Graham, I see very few S14's around these days, much less any S15's. Maybe I need to go hang out at macca's on Thursday nights a bit more?

I can get the little guy into his seat in the mini from the drivers seat! I can almost reach the back window as well though... :P

S15s are still popular are they not? I see them very often.

S14s I never ever see. In fact, even an S13 Silvia is a rare sight. Probably all been drifted into oblivion by now. Same goes for a 180 SX.
