  1. Greetings, after a long absence, comes time to seek some advice from those more experienced than myself. Must say that I do peruse the site from time to time to keep informed. Anyway, my issue is this; For some time now, especially when travelling on a particularly smooth road surface, and more so at a slow speed, I have noticed a faint thump thump coming from the front part of the car On the rougher road surfaces it was not an issue. It is a great car, used on special occasions, had never done anything that I thought would flat spot a tyre. The car handled exceptionally well, and the issue never really bothered me. The front tyres on the car have done about 20k kms, are of Chinese origin, still have 2 or 3 mms left above the wear bars on them and have never given me doubt in their use. They are 225 40 18's, so a slightly lower profile than std. Looking at the tyres through the wheel arch, I have often thought how well they have served and never noticed any abnormality. I do the servicing of the car, am under it - on my back, every 5k kms and have never noticed anything wrong - this episode makes me wonder. About 20k kms ago, I replaced the lower control arm bushes with Superpro ones, all seems ok there still. Following that, the alignment data worksheet seems to indicate that the measured settings were close to those listed on the G35 Service Data sheet. So, that is the setting, now to the present. The car did the near 2k km return trip to the Bathurst 12hr last weekend. Wasn't the fastest on the road, but it did some spirited driving when conditions suited, like over Falls Creek. On the concrete section of the Hume, between Gundagai and Albury, the thump thump became more prominent. A slight tendency to veer to the left also developed. With the car home, thought it was now time for an investigation. Ha! still never doubted the tyres, took them off the car now up on blocks, and set them aside. Was overcast yesterday, a bit dark, getting late in the day, so I didn't bother getting too involved with looking for issues. Happened to move a tyre out of the way to do something else, that tyre being the worse of the two, and got a BIG shock. I have seen tyres in the past that wear off on edges, but just can't understand how the wear pattern on these tyres originated. The acute wear section is inclined to be more down the side a bit, and on the better tyre of the two, the wear is smooth as though it has been seared with a hot flat surface. Yet then, in some smaller sections the wear is not a smooth flat surface, but looks like it has been scolloped out with a tool like that to get icecream out. The other tyre - wow! I should hang that one up as a momento. There are known issues with these cars scrubbing out the inside of the fronts because of negative camber and there being no adjustment remedy. e.g. http://forums.redflagdeals.com/negative-camber-g35-559280/ That the car has 40's instead of 45's on it could also contribute. But accepting that, it seems to me that the tyres have been rubbing on something, yet there is no indication under the car that such has been happening. Rubbing on road surface?? I just can't get the angles to work
  2. P-Plater friendly 34 manual coupe for sale Cliffs; Year: 1999 Dec Colour: Black (GV1) Body: Coupe Engine: RB25DE NEO Transmission: 5spd Manual ODO: 117,xxx Location: Melb, SE suburbs Registration: Until April 2015 (nearly a full year) Major Service: Completed with genuine Nissan items (timing belt, water pump, etc) @ ~100,xxx Minor Service: Every ~5000km Replaced: - 6x New OEM Nissan Coilpacks @ ~90,xxx [end of 2012?] - Fuel Pump [2012] - HID bulbs (retains OEM Xenon HID set up) [end of last year] - Battery [last year] Wheels: 17" SSR Type C (fronts wrapped in KU31 225s, rears are Dunlops 235s) "Mods": - BC BR Coilovers* (8/6kg spring rates) - Tints - Sound System* (Pioneer HU, JL Sub, Alpine Amp) - LED parker lights Extras: - Stock suspension Negatives: - Underneath the front bar there are scratches, that were there from when I first got it from Japan; and then those added due to it being pretty low, haha - Left hand side has a few scratches (don't know if you can even see them in pics, but I'll try to take some close ups of them if needed / you can see them in person) that have been there since Japan also. - Wheels also came with some gutter rash, some wheels worse than others, see pics. Etc: So as you can see, have kept it fairly standard. In excellent condition, besides what is mentioned above. This was my trusty daily for about three years plus; and I was the first owner of the car in Australia (have import papers and what not). Great first car for a p-plater. Only problems I've ever had are standard R34 problems, such as the coilpacks; which, as noted above, were replaced with OEM items . Happy to get a RWC for the right price; tbh the only thing I could see it failing on is possibly something silly like windscreen wipers / possibly tyres but I think they're OK. * Could be neg on price with/without these. Price: $13, 650; negotiable. Note: I am NOT interested in swaps or trades. Pics: These were some pics taken last year, but can always message you other pics if required. - - - Contact: PM me on here or shoot me a message (oh-four-2-5-eight-seven-five-6-8-two). If you want to call best if you could text me first.

  8. Hi all, Time to get things rolling. Looking to buy a GTT soon, so here's my criteria. Show me your car if you're willing to sell! 1. Budget of 14k - cannot stretch much further 2. Black, red or yellow I don't mind - if you have white or silver then you're welcome to save us both some time and don't need to offer. 3. Manual 4. Coupe 5. If possible, nismo kit. 6. Lightly modded (BOV, air filter, exhaust) or stock is preferable - no major engine mods wanted. And last of all, I'm in Sydney, NSW but am willing to travel to ACT/VIC if I must (but this may be a lot more hassle than necessary - but for the right car I'm sure it'll be worth it) PM me if you have something that suits me!

  14. Looking to buy any Datsun 240k C110/C111 Coupe, Manual or Auto, as long as it runs (even barely) Don't really care if it's rusty, though obviously I will pay a lot more for a clean example. May consider blown motors for the right price. Cash waiting $$$ will travel interstate for the right deal.
  15. Regretfully selling my 1990 Nissan S13 Silvia as I'm moving overseas. This is the K's model with all optional extras and some light modification. This is a manual CA18DET model with 150,000km on the clock with motor still running strong. Rego until Aug 2014, but selling without RWC (won't be hard, had RWC approved 12 months ago) Factory features: ABS, LSD, Sunroof, Leather seats (I have never seen these on another S13 before), Glove compartment cooler box (another rare extra), WORKING airconditioning (omg!!), Remote central locking with alarm. Mods (off the top of my head): T28 turbo Bleed valve K&N air filter Front-mount intercooler Performance coil pack 3 inch catback exhaust Bosch 040 fuel pump with Z32 fuel filter Tein Super Street Coilovers front and rear with cambertops 17 inch Advanti Racing wheels (not sure of the specs.. 17x6 maybe?) SAAS boost and oil pressure guages (not installed) Also selling with some other bits and pieces including a second boot lid with stock spoiler and 3rd breaklight (to pass RWC) This isn't the cleanest S13 you'll ever see, but it's a damn good car throughout. It has some great features that are rare, as well as some good, tasteful mods already on to get you started. I had so many plans for this car that I'm unable to follow through with because I'm moving to Japan and unable to keep it sitting around for years. With the right care, this car will without a doubt hold it's value or even increase in value as more S13s are stripped and thrashed into track cars or wrapped around poles. Asking $6,000 ono. Low-ballers will be ignored. Reasonable offers will be considered. Located in St Kilda. Come check it out, and no time wasters as this will definitely sell. Call me or text 0-4-3-0- 0-2-6- 6-0-3

  19. Has anyone got any V35 coupe headlights that are wanting to get rid of? Brisbane preferred. PM me if you have a pair
  20. Hi everyone, my name is Justin, I'm 19 and from Melbourne. 2 months ago I sold my Commodore wagon and Imported a 1999 R34 25GT. Obviously i didnt get the GTT because im still on green P's for another 3 years. I paid $8000 for it and it only has 85,000 ks on it. Im looking forward to taking it to track days and meeting all you other Skyline enthusiasts
  21. Hello all!! I was wondering if anyone had an aftermarket exhaust lying around for a v35 coupe that they are willing to sell. Not after spending an arm and a leg for one just after something as low cost as possible! even if you have just an after market muffler forsale i would consider it. located in Brisbane but im always on the Gold coast and Sunshine coast also so anywhere in between would be perfect cheers in advance!

  23. WTB: 2005+ Manual V35/350GT Coupe Hey Peeps, New member here. Looking to get a manual V35 coupe and was wondering if anyone here was selling theirs or know of anyone who is selling.(Couldn't find any in the for sale section). Needs to be well looked after and preferably located in Melbourne, but wouldn't mind to travel outside of Melb for an exceptional one. Thanks a bunch!
  24. So I joined the Skyline community not long ago getting my Silver Series 2 R33 GTS-T Manual with 240rwkw. But my finances have improved and i'm contemplating upgrading to a GTR if I can sell this for a happy price. Mods off the top of my head: Full exhaust (Not sure on the size as it's metric JDM but it's big and unrestricted and sounds amazing) Upgraded walbro fuel pump Rear strut bar Sound system with touch screen 18" DTM Rush rims Slotted rotors front and rear Heavy duty clutch Splitfire coil packs GCG Highflow turbo Engine bay strut brace FMIC 240rwkw Racepace tuned Doesn't have any major bad points that I can think of except the front bar has a scrape that I bought it with. The guy who I bought it off just had the front bar resprayed a few days later somebody in a carpark scraped him. I didn't bother fixing it just yet as i'm focused on performance currently and it's not that bad. You could really just put a JDM sticker over it and forget it's there. The quote to get it fixed was $200. With regards to price i'm not sure what the market is doing currently so i'm just taking offers and if I get one I think is good enough i'll sell and upgrade. PM or post offers I don't mind. Sorry it's dirty in a bunch of the pictures, the only ones I have access to at the second. Oh and I obviously had to get RWC when i bought it just a couple of months ago so shouldn't be any costs there.
