I think mainly people take them off because it's illegal to leave them on. Mine still has the Jap rego sticker and Shaken sticker.

The Soarers ones have been removed.

silver, grill not wonky, just the pic :P

I'll type up the mods list when I have a few mins.

umm, because I plan to drive it in nsw?

Seriously though the reason it has plates is because I just got it registered yesterday. those shots were taken about 2 hours after I went to the workshop, put my plates on and drove it home.

It came off the boat in brisbane about 2 weeks ago, then cleared customs there, then went to Toll fast holding yard in brissie, then to Toll fast yard in sydney, then to workshop, then I picked it up, and took these pics (about 2 hours after I picked it up from the workshop).

geddit?

:D

Few not so good pics of the four door. Yes, it's an N/a auto. Was bought to be pulled down and built into track/drift car. How ever I have my sights on something better (as you do) and might just clean it up, and daily drive it. Ignore the Barina, that’s the current daily hack :)

hehe

yeh my point was that its not "fresh from Japan" anymore tho. Fresh from Japan is when the thing is filthy and has been sitting @your house for 10mins :)

(sorry being pedantic now)

I reckon we can count fresh from japan as being before it's first proper wash!

we have a saying in these parts:

"picsorban"
