Hi Mate

Looks amazing..

Where did you get the S3 lights? Trying to find some myself.

Also 2.7 Ohm resistor mod, can you explain?

I got them from Kudos about 8 months ago. I believe they were the last few remaining sets released to public. I have a feeling as they are no longer in production, you need to know someone to find any. The price of these reflected this, and although was expensive, I feel it was worth it to finish the front end off.

The airbag light stays on if you don't hook up the 34 GTR airbag, and even then I don't know if it would work (being 20 years old) or if they are even same resistance. Hooking up a 2.7 ohm resistor to the brown and black wires fools the ECU into thinking there is an airbag. You could always remove the globe as well.

I'm pretty sure none were made after 1998 haha
the stock that's available is just whatever Nissan had laying around globally in warehouses.

I'm not sure when they were last produced - so I'll take your word for it. What I meant was since Kudos made a post ~7 months ago I haven't seen any other sets become available, at least in Australia. Just the random odd person selling a set, and they get snapped up really fast.

Yeah low production numbers = low number of spares = high value in 20 years time when they become popular

The REAL love of our lives hey... 😂 (making sure the wife isn't looking at this post) 🤣

But seriously. Lovely GT-R mate. The series 3 headlights really transform the look of it, they look great. Keep the posts up.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, I am really happy there are so many people who share the passion for these amazing machines.

2 sets of good news.

1) I have managed to convince (probably just sick of my whinging) my lovely wife to let me do the turbo upgrade. Going to start trawling through the rb26 dyno thread to see which one to go with. Anything between the 600-650hp atw should be sufficient, I don't want to go overboard without forging bottom end or sacrificing too much drive-ability/reliability. Open to suggestions, thinking BW8374 or GTX35?

2) Enjoy the second location shots.

Car looks amazing, well done, it’s the little things that make it, the series 3 lights, 34 wheel etc, just set it off, beautiful car. 
The Precesion 64/66 is a popular turbo, might be a little lazy with stock compression motor but will make 400-450kw on a lower boost setting, then when you’re ready and build the bottom end, you can turn it up, that turbo will be good for 550kw ATW. 
Just be mindful that you’ll be past the limits of the stock box, so if you beat on it too much you’ll end up with a noisy or broken gearbox. 
and the can of worms has been cracked open 😂
