Quoting Hittman:

Wait..., what number is she?








JK!


Welcome to the world of RHD, it's pretty fun and I plan to always have at least one in my stable, (current one is in the process of getting washed and clayed before I post any pics)

Also, any interior pictures? Would love to see more of the instrument cluster and the IR button.





I know you sold the R32, so I wonder what you got now. I'll take interior pics soon. The one thing I don't like is there is not color change button like the USDM models speedometer. Which sucks because I hate green lights and this is officially the 1st car out of the many that I owned with a green display.

Also I can't seen to find the IR button, so it may be something that came with later year models....Fuel any thoughts?

Sweet, that means I also get to transfer my TSP plan over.

However I did agree when you posted on FB, I would rather have LHD, but due to the incredible cleaness/rust free everything and low mileage, I can overlook the fact that it is RHD.

This is a pick of my door handle with the IR sensor hole.
My sensor has been knocked back into the hole, it still works but you need the key to be within a couple of feet.

Just got approved to show my car in indoor spot at a Springfest this year (yes there was a screening possess for indoor spots). This is one of the biggest Import car shows on the east coast and I want to make sure I represent for the VR-4 properly. I will be updated this thread as I fix issues and MOD the car to get ready for the show.

Issues I need to address:
1) Missing upper windshield trim. It when MIA after a quick highway pull.


2) Minor curb rash on 2 of my rims.Nothing the local rim shop can't handle.

3)Need new front pillow mounts. One of the JIC mounts has seen better days. (RRE might be my best bet since Tein are NLA, and Cusco are special order). The car needs alignment as well. However a local EVO guy just posted a set of evo 8/9 KW V3s for sale.....very tempting.

4) Dents on the hood. Waiting on Juan and those CF hoods. If not PDR might work with the worst case being sent to the body shop for a respray.

5)4WS light is on, need to figure out why and fix it.


For mods, I have a 20g but no support MODs, hope fully I can have it installed and tuned by then.

Looks nice man! What are the wheels specs? offset etc... 4ws light, have you checked the power steering fluid level? Sometimes the sensor on the cap gets stuck.

Yes, the fluid level was the first thing I checked.

The rims are 17x7 with a +37 offset. To make matters worst, I'm have what SSR calls the "SL Disc" which gives me the least amount of clearance for bigger brakes.

The car has been JSB for about a week, waiting for my rims to repaired along with the new set of tires to be mounted. Might as well take advantage of the down.

Removed my old JIC top hats and installed the Tein top hats. As they said out with the old, in with the new.




I installed my custom 27mm Sway bar that I had laying around from 923/2000. It was major PIA since I still have 4WS.

I installed my CM exhaust last night see how much it sticks out past the rear bumper. It's not that bad, so I'm going to see if it can be shorten and just keep it.

Well I got my downpipe in yesterday, so I decided to install my shorten CM exhaust.

CM exhaust on the left, JDM exhaust on the exhaust on the right.



The rear exhaust tip is not sticking out 6" like before.




Overall I suspect a little HP gain over the older exhaust while be a bit quieter as well. I one thing I don't like about the CM exhaust is the slip over piping. That was a pain to rotate the tail pipe section so the muffler didn't sit cockeyed with viewed from the rear.

Picked up a set of old school 5zigen Heidfeld (17x7.5 +40, 4x114.3/4x100) off of CL today. The wheels are in good shape for the age. The only real "problem" is that the lips need to be polished.


I plan on using them for autocross days or any other type motorsport event.

WOW times flies. I owned this car for over a year now.



Here is my car at Springfest 2017 (VA Beach, VA). Now that the show is over, it's time to focus on performance mods.
