So i really want to change things up a bit, I would love a S13/180 or even a 4dr 32 or even sell and buy something different.


or am i being stupid? The car is incredibly clean apart from the front bar which just needs paint, and its had the easiest life in the world.

Any opinions would be great


Also the car is all booked in for the 26th to get the defect cleared. I can drive it again tomorrow as its all be checked over by my mechanic

Arent you planning of upgrading to a s15? So why go s13? - Would be better to clear this of defect, sell it and upgrade

Unless said s13 is a well build highly modded example It would be silly to downgrade or trade for another stock vehicle when u have a clean car that u know the history of. If ur bored of it start modding it don't know how anyone can get bored of these cars, once u start spending some coin they are like new again IMO.

Yeah S1's are cool but you need to go real wide and real low to make them good. Plus mine is AUTO STILL and its busting my balls!!! ASAD: I am upgrading to a S15 later in the year but im getting really impatient and i just want to start doing hill climbs! which i cant do in a auto under powered 14, so my idea was to trade for a cheaper manual car that i can learn as much as i can from before the 15 comes a long. R32GTRS: I would be aiming for the strongest engine possible but i might just have to wait and see is anybody offers anything. The best part of my car is the huge folder of history i have with it, but i need to make it manual to make it live again and atm i dont have a spare 2k.

Cheers for your opinions lads

Dude it's like a spare $800 to make it manual.

You'll lose more than twice that downgrading to an s13 and then buying an s15 later.

Waste of time changing cars now if your going to a s15, just buy a s15 and leave the 14 as is, not much point spending money if your not keeping it and youl find it harder to sell another one of the million s13s available

its a clean base and has a navan bar, people will pay for that

Haha, if I had more spare time I'd be right on that. $800 is spot on what I got mine for, though it was S13. And I reckon I paid too much since the box was beat to f**kin shit.

Find someone who's written off theirs in a front/rear/side/upsidedown collision, grab the bits you need, set aside a week to do it all properly and you're set.

Honestly its worth the time and effort, it feels like you've been given a completely new car once you're finished.


That said if you really cant be bothered........drive up to barker and swapsies cars with me haha

My plan was if I keep it to only buy parts that can be transferred into a 15, mainly coils adjustable arms and a velo seat.

I was more referring to a manual conversion, anything you do on the s14 is transferrable to the s15 regarding suspension/engine mods as they are essentially the same car
