Well ..... hello there ! As you can see , i´m not dead lmao . I was just extremely busy with work (and also irl life , yes i have a life ) and i haven´t had much time left for updates .
Here´s what happened in the matter of 2 months .
Let´s cover the last few days of 2019 first, Shall we ? I sold my S197a - It just wasn´t the right car for me to be honest .Also , my S15 got rear ended as is currently at the bodyshop getting repaired. THEN i´ve met up with Ben , A.K.A @Benny
on the forums for the first time irl And boy oh boy it was something .As you guys saw from his update , He surprised me with a Christmas present and I might´ve destroyed his clutch on his R33 ( oops sorry ). - be sure to check out his update !
Next thing i´ve helped Franklin to build a gift for Muza that all of you already saw , the E-BCNR33 V-Spec ! I must say , i´ve had a lot of fun helping him and ughm Muza , welcome to the R´s club !
THEN I was invited by @FranklinAnderson
to a trackday on 25th with @BigSmoke @topy @Niatross @RocketBunnyS13 @Lagano @Benny
and ofc Frank , duh . Be sure to check out their updates for that !
ngl the last LAST days of 2019 were quite boring and honestly i was ready to be over with the decade already
ANNNDDD that brings us to New Years Eve that i spent in company of my Ucle and close ones and right Before 0:00 i went outside to shoot some fireworks ....
and went to bed ! ( i know , groundbreaking )
The beginning of January was even more boring and also hectic at the same time, a shit ton of work in the office , studying for my final exams AND on top of that , moving from Gunma to Saitama just so i could be closer to Tokyo because of work .But THEN , i got a "brilliant" idea to visit the japanese car auctions site to see if there´s a possible new project "material " there . And OH MY GOD , THERE SURE WAS ! I´VE found a series II E-BCNR33 V-Spec Skyline for a starting price of 1,200,000yen AND @ 1,728,392.65yen i won the bid ! I GOT A FUCKING VSPEC FOR 1,728,392.65yen , WHAT?!
And OH , it´s not in a terrible condition either . I mean it´s quite " higher " mileage R grade car , but it does run smoothly , doesnt have any kind of rust on the body but it does have some signs of wear and also the age of the car is in fact showing on some parts . But overall imo it was a great buy !
Now , i think it´s time to update ya´ll on my cars i currently own and what happened to them in the matter of 2 months !
Before i met up with Ben , i´ve installed brand new HKS HIPERMAX - MAX IV GT coilovers to lower the car a bit and also improve the driving quality AND also installed JZA80 Kouki Recaro seats that i got for 66,048.17yen on Yahoo auctions . As most of you saw on STS thread , Ben gave me a JZA80 TRD style wing ( arigatooooooo ) that only recently got paintmatched to the rest of the body lmoa .
And i´ve also been collecting JZA80 parts like crazy as most of you saw on StS autoparts thread lmao

Regardless the fact that since the respray this car just sat in the new Saitama Shop and haven´t got much action ever since , It´s still my most favorite car i own !
What´s new ? Well , Nismo S-tune coilovers that got in fact installed @ the omori factory , replica Z-Tune Nismo aero ( minus the hood , front bumper and fenders )that i got from yahoo auctions for 132,110.70
yen and 18x 10 1/2J +11 Advan AVS Model 6´s for 77,064.58yen AAANNDDD the rubber of choice - 295/30R18 Toyo Proxes R888R that i took of my old BCNR33 CE28 setup !
Except for KW V3 Coilovers , Eibach® - Pro-Spacer Polished High-Strength Aircraft-Aluminum Wheel Spacers and Abarth 500 ESSEESSE rims it´s still the same performing daily i´ve bought 2 months ago ! But i have to say , that it´s a bit quiet for my style , so maybe a new exhaust soon ? H I H E
And finally , the last but not least but also newest member of my collection ...
2010 Audi A5 2.0TFSI QUATTRO
Yup ! I´m officially an eurofag , or should i say eurotranny in my case ? lmoa . Anyways , this is a 2010 Ibis White model equipped with S-Tronic DCT and tuner friendly 2.0TFSI engine pushing healthy 211hp hooked to a Quattro awd system . As you´ve probably noticed , this car is LHD even tho the A5/S5/RS5´s are mostly RHD due to the fact that Audi is sold in Asia too . And why is this one LHD ? It was actually imported from Germany to Japan way back in 2011 , which means that this is the EURO model !
NGL I´ve always been a fan of the 8T´s , imo they´re one of the best looking audis EVER ( you can´t change my mind ) and the 2.0TFSI is a quite tuner friendly engine too !
What are my plans with it ? Well.... i´m probably gonna use it mainly for daily use but i do plan on tuning it to a good all arounder , basically a daily that i can track on Tsukuba lmao .
Not only the car looks amazing from the outside ,with the luxurious looking leather interior , it looks absolutely INCREDIBLE on the inside too ...
and uuuuuuhhhhhhhh , the seats are SO comfortable !
And uuhhh ..... where am i right now ? Actually i´m currently in the land of opportunity , good old USA with @Lagano
picking up some future projects H I H E Stay tuned for his update !
