Sometimes it feels funny sharing your shitbox to the world when people get annoyed that you spend your money on expensive quality products. I feel like the people are always comparing (example) either how much $$$$$ their custom wheels costed or how cheap their "just as good" steering wheel was. You are allowed to spend 10K on wheels, but not 600usd on a steering wheel.


Shit like that makes me so annoyed. Who cares how much one spends?
I bought all GKtech parts for my suspension and I'm a moron because of I spent shitloads of money on quality parts that I don't really need. Seems like the chinese 600$ arm set would have been better option for me. After all that, it's still wrong to get wheels that cost under 3.5K. This is what I do not understand. Can someone explain?

I'm, not old and grumpy. I'm young and stupid...

...who the fuck has ever spent $10k on wheels?

I've never paid over $3.5k for wheels and I've got typical fuckboy wheels like TEs and LMs.

GKTech makes good products. Do you need over-engineered parts for your stance car? No.

It depends on what your goals are, I think. There are plenty of rich kids that build stance cars and have the whole catalog of *insert over-engineered arms maker* parts on a car that seldom gets driven. That, at least to me, is a waste of money.

Ikeya Formula is a good example. Do you want to know why they cost so much? It's because they pass JAPANESE inspection. Most aftermarket stuff isn't approved to pass and you need documents. Ikeya Formula has said documents...but why do people in other countries pay the mark up if it means nothing to them? Bragging points.

I guess my point is this: don't buy top-tier shit for areas you don't need top-tier shit in. Everyone can tell you're just a glory whore at that point.

I have seen people pay that amount for custom wheels. I can't believe they do. But yes it happens. Look at the Avant Garde wheel brand. I've seen these wheels on Civics and 86's.

In regards to the Ikeya Formula comment. I wish i knew that 8+ years ago when i bought all my shit. I noticed there wasn't much difference visually compared to the generic arms. I got all my ikeya stuff coz i was a huge Koguchi fan boy. But to be fair i had put all that stuff to good use and i'm glad i had em because they've stood the test of time.

Dawg that's dumb.

I have 2.75 sets of wheels (I've been looking for a wheel to finish my third set for a year). COMBINED they cost less than $3500. All very desirable wheels (one set 17x9 TC005, one set 17x9 RGIII, one set 17x9.5 things that I want the world to forget exist until I find my fourth wheel)

I paid around 3.5k for my wheels. Custom size S1 3P meisters brand new. They’re not cheap, but sometimes I see people talking shit because some spent usenr 2k for one piece wheels. I don’t know what is wrong with it.

And what comes what you really need and what you don’t need is stupid thing to compare. If one wants top notch quality parts to replace old crusty ones, why is it wrong?

There's nothing wrong with wanting the best.

Just don't tell someone else they're stupid for not wasting money on things they don't need.

There are a lot of brands out there with some serious engineering behind them and a big ass markup too.
When I couldnít find my advans, I found a company in Florida or Cali called adv.1 that has model 5 looking wheels.
8400 for a set of 4, no center caps.

I did not respond to that email lol.

I didnít know about ikeya formula and their approved parts.

I ended up buying spl since I read good reviews. I probably wonít need them since I donít plan on driving the car around too much. I personally just thought that if I crash my car due to some cheap crappy part(s) then I would hate myself for it. I put in a lot of work to save money and buy stuff, so to cheap out on such a small scale would end up costing me a lot.

I choose to have a higher factor of safety aka overkill my build. I know I can get away with using 2 gauge wire for a battery relocation. Imma be pissed if that causes me problems or a fire, so I went with 1/0 gauge with padding/insulation and extra fuses. My cost wasnít under $50 like all those write ups.

Another thing is, if you ever went to sell your car the price would change drastically if you use top dollar well known parts vs the absolute bare minimum bottom of the barrel brand.

Yeah it's safe to say that a lot of us know what Ikeya Formula is because of Koguchi. I just don't see the point in buying them when Cusco is cheaper, has the same pedigree, and also comes with the inspection documents. The topic now is dudes who would still pay the mark up just to say 'top shelf'.

I wouldn't criticize anyone that bought them because Koguchi had the arms on his car...I get that. I understand the ideal they're chasing.

I'd totally talk shit on a car that was lacking in other areas but had said parts because they know Ikeya is a buzzword.

Yeah you're totally right. It doesn't negate the fact that we can see through these people, though.

There's a guy on base with a suuuuuuper clean S13 Silvia. I got to talk to him when I first showed up and it was like a triggered a dialogue box from a video game. He just ran me down the list of top-tier parts he had. Again, super friendly guy, liked cars in his own way...but he's just a name brand hunter. There's no real 'soul' behind any of it. This is all my opinion, though.

Maybe things are different where you live. Where I'm from, it's better to have some RPF1s (sub ~$1000) than any type of 'fake' wheel. People who base ANYTHING off cost involved alone are probably just twats like ya boi BSpliner or Hubeny.

yeah but that's the marketing ploy: you're not going to 'crash your car' because you don't use SPL. A shop I use in my hometown made a good point when talking about SPL: why spend all that money on a street driven car? The arms would literally 'rip' off your car in an accident.

I've thought about it ever since, and I try to base my purchases off the degree to which my cars will be used. Cusco fits the bill for Japan. Battle Version fits the bill for the US.

The battery relocation thing makes more sense than the arms, in my opinion. Stuff like that should always be 'overdone' because shit like that would ruin your car (if done incorrectly) long before your RUCA would 'cause an accident'.

...yeah I don't know what the fuck is up with American companies that make forged wheels. Brada, HRE, ADV.1...does it really cost so much in the US that the prices have to be exponentially more than a set of BNIB, 'store-priced' Volks from your local vendor? I honestly don't know. If it's all mark-up that's pretty lame.

Thank you!!

I can say it, Iím a brand whore, but the cost for the product doesnít make a one. I just happen to like products that are good quality. What makes me cringe is that people buy shit, because theyíre expensive, not because they might be top notch. PBM arms could have been more expensive and more ĒbrandĒ friendly name, but after doing some research and asking people they recommended GKtech. Thatís what I went for.

In my opinion itís not stupid to spend money on high quality parts, but it is stupid to spend the money to something that is expensive, but not better than some other brand.

When it comes to exterior and wheels itís a different story tho. If you like the look of some 8k wheels and you have the money for them, why not? You can not get them anywhere else and thatís the price you need to pay to get them.

When I first saw the V2 Bunny kit, I fell in love with it. It really is not a ĒdistinguishedĒ kit on the s-chassis community like BN and Spirit Rei seem to be. The kit costed what it costed, but I had to pay to get it. I did not want the V1 kit that would have been the same style, but less expensive.

Can anyone understand where Iím going with this?

Ok, but you realize this is the exact type of thinking that perpetuates "modern" day gender debates. "This is how I feel, why doesn't anyone conform to MY standards??!?!?!??! ME ME ME ME" I always see you complaining about and mocking millennials, yet you host a millennial mentality, and are completely ignorant to it. WOW!

Who are you to tell someone how to spend their money?

The car scene is over saturated with people doing the same thing. Carbon copies of carbon copies. To have an expectation that everybody in the scene should be the same, or as equally shitty as you are, is boring as hell. Its human nature to be different from the rest, its what makes us humans. You are going to scold people for trying being different?

Exclusivity is expensive. Just because you can't afford to be different, doesn't mean other people can't either. Quit complaining, you sound like such a hypocrite talking about spending money un-necessarily, and "glory whores", but you yourself own an schassis. In no way, is owning an schassis a smart way to spend money, there are far better performing, cheaper cars out there.

Maybe take a second to think before you blurb off next time, what it means to you, and to others to be a car enthusiast. Not everyone has the same goal, visions, passion, interests, or income as you.

The topic was brought up by Juusco. He asked for our (and by extension, MY MY MY) thoughts on the matter. I love how you took the one instance where I didn't clearly type out 'this is my opinion' but it's implied here. A question was put forth and we chimed in. That's why all of the functioning adults in this thread are having a discord free of 'triggering' some millennial fuckboy like you. Your first and only post just on this forum HAD to be in THIS thread where EVERYONE BUT YOU is discussing.

This sentence alone tells me everything I need to know about you.

No. I'm not going to 'scold' anyone. As stated even earlier, I unfollow them or I block them because I don't want to see it. Is this going to be a lesson in how I have to accept everyone? The same rhetoric that sates I need to be accepting never allows for me to disapprove. Where's my freedom of choice? Am I shitting on these guys in their IG comments? Nope. I'm unfollowing them.

Is that okay, mein fuhrer?

No it's not. It's being made expensive buy cucks that buy cheap and sell high. The standard 'you can't afford it' comment is another weapon commonly found in the arsenal of morons like you.

There's a HUGE difference between ability and willingness. It's part of self-control...but most kids living at home, parking in their parents' garage don't have to worry about much in terms of outgoing funds. As much as you might say this is coming from a place of jealousy I can assure you it's not. My point is, and always has been, that if you can't see these people for what they are (mostly culture vultures spending their disposable income on RARE VINTAGE NISMO BY SJERIN) then you deserve to be 'pimped'.

This is obvious, Mr. White Knight. I was having a civilized talk with Juusco who CLEARLY has a different idea of what it means to be an 'enthusiast' and he and i got along just fine.


Maybe YOU should think more about it before you come in here, try to paint me into a category that's easy to vilify, and attempt to take me down with some bullshit SJW logic that says that my freedom to state a negative opinion isn't equal to my freedom to state a positive opinion for being different.

Here's the story.

I have a huge amount of respect for Dizzariot. I like his style and what matters the most to me, his attitude is what I like. He has a lot of good points and I like to discuss with him since he accepts the fact that we're different type of enthusiast. This gives me a opportunity to see a small peak how they see things. I'm 100% sure that Dizzariot does not like my S13, but I'm completely fine with it and still can be internet friends with him.

We can share opinions without shitting on each other and discuss about it. This is how I want to have conversations with people. I absolutely hate when somebodies don't accept you if you disagree on some things. This does not mean that I should just swallow everything that is being said to me or what I see. I still can have my opinion, but usually I try to keep it to myself or tell about it in a nice way. Expect we're talking about shitty JPfiberglass parts. <3

When talking about jealously, I do not see it much in here Zilvia. If someone calls your car shit, it does NOT mean that they're jealous. They just don't like it. I don't need to like it, you don't need either.

lmao how was dizzariot jealous of anyone, he gave a totally fair opinion & juucso took it in a completely reasonable way. Love this dude managing to make this dude make himself look as big a dickhead as possible in his first ever post.

That's fine to have an opinion, yours is worth the same as mine, but to say somebody shouldn't spend their money on something they can afford is a bit silly, and well, closed minded. Do you go down to the pier and tell millionaires who spend 3 million on a yacht what they should be spending their money on instead? Do you also cry on Bugatti forums that you could build a much better performing, functional car for 1/8th the cost?

I'm not sure you know or understand, or ever will understand the difference between having the money to buy something and being able to afford something. If you have to make a choice between a performance and an aesthetic upgrade, and complain about the price, then you are in the can't afford it boat dude.

Just because I have $1000 in my bank account doesn't mean I'm gonna go buy a $500 oil cap... Why? Because I CAN'T afford it.

That's like, your opinion, man. I'm only jealous of Nigel from ETS and Emily Blunt's husband.

"It's fine for you to have an opinion, but here's why it's wrong for you to have said opinion."

...and no, I don't go down any piers to talk to any millionaires about any yachts. I go to the car forum aimed directly at owners of said cars where we discuss said cars at length. Fuck me, right?

I love Crowder.

More forcing me into a role that's easy to dismiss.

Do you have any other parlor tricks? How can we be wrong in here when we're talking about OPINIONS. Lack of critical thinking? I fully dissected your comment and constructed a response. Backpedaling? How? Where?

This is how I KNOW you're an SJW. You keep telling me I'm wrong for sharing my opinions on a forum FULL of shared opinions and, more specifically, a thread where we had been sharing our opinions without issue.

OF COURSE you're not. You already dismissed me (see Ref.1) and made a bunch of claims that aren't true so you can look like you 'got me'.

S

J

W

Dunning-Kruger effect: Hey I Google'd that. The term 'cognitive bias' is used. More SJW rhetoric...and that definition applies to you. You're painting me as a troglodyte (WHOA, BIG WORD, EVERYONE) so you can seem superior when you're clearly not on the upper tier of learn-ed doctors. Stop projecting.

Pls virtue signal in the DIW thread...or did you think you'd have an easier time singling me out?

If you'd like to get this thread back on track, you can totally respond. I know you'll read this anyway. Your response wouldn't have been that long if really didn't care.

Juucso - sorry man you're wrong about us ignoring our differences and having a discussion. Looks like you and I should never put forth conflicting opinions in a reasonable manner ever again. *sarcasm

I really think "just because you can, doesn't always mean you should, or have too" is really a better wording of what dizza is trying to say. Some people appreciate braggers rights / brand whoring. Some don't.

Happy new years, cunts.

Yeah that's a simplified version. I'd take it once step further and note that everyone can tell when you're the brand whoring guy and not the normal guy buying top-tier for a desired area of their car.

Happy New Year, Grumpy Asshole.

No clue what this thread is actually about but after owning my 240sx for almost two decades, maybe 2019 will be the year I finally get rid of it.

It took years for me to afford and procure the parts I dreamed about having. I was obsessed with gaining knowledge on the S chassis and became an expert. Little by little I built the car I dreamed about. Now, finally the car is at a place where all it needs is a paint job. I still love the car no less, but it has primarily become a source of stress for me instead of joy since I moved to Europe a year and a half ago. The car is currently sitting in storage which I pay monthly for and it's not being used. Bringing it to Europe is not really an option since it would cost a fortune to register here being that it doesn't meet emissions standards. I know that I won't get the money back that I put in the car over the years... I believe the market for 240sx will mature in a few years just like the S30 cars have. I sold my 1976 280z for a pittance in 2006, and always feel regret when I think about it. With my 240sx, I told myself I wouldn't be that old guy saying "I drove that car to highschool and I never should have sold it", but maybe the time has come to pass it on to someone else. Just the musings of another grumpy old asshole on Zilvia.

By the time you filter out the "What I want" VS "What someone will pay"

Keep it. At this point with the way the s-chassis community is, I'd rather let my car be a barn find in X amount of years than sell it, unless of course it was some ungodly amount of money.

You all talked shit to JIMBO about crushing that shell in his build thread. Worst come to worst, I'd probably part my car out to a shell and cut it in half, just so it wasn't someone elses.

just import it to europe.. My dad imported a USDM 84 toyota celica supra to Portugal in the late 80's and still drives it when he's there. Passes inspection every time and emissions is not an issue because its considered a "compact" car. The 240sx or the 200sx as its branded there is all over Europe where its also considered a compact. They only drive compact cars there as thats whats popular. Saying that you don't want to import it is just laziness and stupidity at its finest, since they are all over the place there.
