Hi, I hope I haven't signed up too early, I just want to get as much info as possible really.

I own a V8 Mk3 Cortina and a Volvo 850 at the moment, however the Volvo is going after Christmas and I am buying my first skyline.

It is a 1996 4 door R33 GTS25 (Non turbo) manual in Black. I shall be slipping on a set of (hopefully) 18's if not 17's. Powerflow exhaust with 5 inch Jap rear box, Sparco Seats and harnesses, blacking the windows, GTR wing and front bumper, then CD/MD/DVD install.

I have to be 'sensible' about my choice being a family man and it being my main car, hence the 4 door and non turbo option.

Depending on your budget I'd go for a turbo anyway, fueld consumption won't be that different really. I have used my gtst almost everyday for 3 years without a single reliability problem, barring batteries going for some reason :(

I've had a quick fiddle with Photoshop on a couple of standard R33 4 doors. I shall be waiting until the right car comes up. Has to be Manual, has to Black, sadly has to be 2.5 N/A

I say N/A as I am thinking of cost if something does go wrong. With a Turbo car, brakes, clutches, gearboxes etc tend to be more expensive when replaced.
