As u may have seen in my newbie post i have just bought my first skyline after drivein jap performance cars 4 the last 8 years a skyline was deff on my 2 do list at some point,

the guys who replyed 2 my newbie post asked 4 some pics so here they are, was a lovely day today so spent a good 4 hours washing it and t-cut it hope u like it,

i have got some big plans 4 the car firstly i want 2 sort out the looks, its a great looking car anyway but really does need 2 look a bit meaner, after that i will look at the performance, my last car was a supra wich made 599hp at the hubs so the skyline deff needs a bit of a kick up the arse, i dont plan on going as mad as that kinda power was a bit 2 much 4 a road car so im planing on around the 400 hp mark but that can wait 4 now

Had this on mine. Is a factory option. Makes the car handle a load better. Really noticed it round Brands Hatch :D
