I think mine might fall into this, have a 97 that I've been slowly restoring and tastefully modifying as we go along. Have tried to stick with OEM parts as much as possible.

97 240SX
Originally auto trans, 240k miles on body.

Powertrain:
SR20DET swap from a 98 S14 front clip
S15 electronics (ECU, injectors, ignition)
JDM VLSD diff (3.69 FD)
Greddy FMIC
Apexi Induction Pipe
HKS BOV, stock location, recirculated
Greddy exhaust
Nismo trans mount
C's short shifter
DW fuel pump

Body:
OEM JDM Kouki Aero
R33 GTR N1 vents (not installed yet)

Suspension:
R33 GTR wheels 245/40R17 Cont Sport tires
Tein springs
New KYB shocks
S15 Spec-R trunk brace
Nismo Tension rod brace

Interior:
JDM steering wheel, re-wrapped w/ perforated leather
JDM Triple-DIN gauge pod
JDM Kouki radio/vent trim
New carpet
FX35 Bose sub in spare tire

Have had to replace rusted floor pans and a bunch of interior bits. Few things left are: replace quarter panel (was hit when I bought it) and paint whole car. Have full Nismo suspension arms ready to go. Also have leather interior that will need to be redone before installing.

I used ACC cutpile with mass backing. Used the original carpet as a template to make the cuts needed for it to fit.

Who ever the dude was that jumped the bid 10K is a fool. 15K? nahhhh. You're into a similar conditioned Silvia for not much more and I'd think that'd be more desirable.

Holy shit. Yeah that fucked it all up. I mean the miles are so low I'd personally CONSIDER $10k...but the added $5k is either some dumb rich kid or someone that knows the seller and is really trying to push their luck.

The more I see the OEM S13 Silvias/240sx, the more I want to revert my cars back to stock. I think having the S15 as a 'low car' is enough for me...

Also thought this might be a good place to share this since not a lot of people seem to be aware of this and is an OEM+ style upgrade. I wanted to relocate the battery to the trunk in my s14 and used an r33 battery tray which I imported from the UK. Mounts right up to factory holes which are originally covered by stickers, and looks super clean.

Battery tray is super legit, cant beleve no one eles does this.....

I feel like my cars fit well in this thread. Although they may not have too much "+" they sure are OEM. First is my 92 hatch. Bought this from the original owner a little less that a year ago with 76k miles. its 100% and should be getting some coilovers and wheels within the next month or so.



Next is my 89 creamy yellow two-tone coupe that I picked up on black friday this year. Like the hatch, it is completely stock and should be getting some tastefull mods when i have the chance. Till then, it makes for a great looking daily

Your post reminds me of how mine looked when new! Fantastic here in Australia these lips are $800 or so for the Nissan one, others are 300 for am Frp job. So I think some sanding, filling and black painting of my scratched, torn and abused one will occur.

I think I'm beginning to understand the BMW/Porsche folks now. I just turned 30 and I'm starting to look at my shit and see dollar signs instead of a hobby.

Yeah I have a few buddies I talk to and your prices there are getting pretty wild. I'm happy I got what I wanted while the getting was good, but I still paid more than the average person to keep KM low.

I've always been a fan of the Irish(?) guy that has the red S15 on Model 5s.
