New country! New whip! (Jap content)



So those of you that know me, would know that I've recently made the move to New Zealand a few weeks ago, and I've finally managed to pic up this beaut!

It's a 1997 R33 Skyline GTS25T!

Really has some grunt with the RB25DET lump under the bonnet!

I pick it up Wednesday so I'll be sure to post some updates on it!

WTF?? Who/what/how/why you in New Zealand?

​Jammy fucker. One of my mates moved over there last year.
 
Haha I'm in Christchurch where they had a big earthquake a couple years ago so my dads got a really good job working in the rebuild. The city's gonna be epic once the rebuilds finished!
 
How the f**k did you afford that Dan? You only sold your Clio for circa 1k iirc?

How bad is the insurance? I don't think you can get insured on them over here unless you have big bucks!

I saved up sh*t loads from when I was working so could afford to sell my Clio cheap. Insurance was £600 fully comp :)

$1200 fully comp ?? Bonkers. I was paying $30 (£15) per month when I was out there !

Hope you don't get bored of CHCH there ain't nothing to do ! The re-build won't be ready for at least another 5-10 years surely ?

I'm proper jelous though, wish I was back out there.

Enjoy that! Gts ones lack something on the front IMO. Back is epic but front seems tame. Any plans?

Same as Oz. What's rego like there? Here it's expensive and when you add CTP green slip it's even worse.

How's life out there though mate? Seriously envious other than the experience of having no mates etc to begin with.

If you've not been out there before, go check out Queenstown. I fecking loved the place. Wellington is pretty cool too TBH.

Yeah mate apart from the obvious no friends etc. I'm really enjoying it! My dads been out here since February so he's done queenstown and all that but I'm still yet to see everything, think I'm gonna wait till the summer to explore everywhere as its no fun exploring and doing stuff in the cold/rain!
 
That skyline is f#cking awesome mate! Aways loved them, especially the back end.

Only skimmed through the thread but have you had chance to drive it yet?

Hope you enjoy it over there buddy :)

It's also had a battery relocated to the boot (I think he had a sub)

And there was some random wires and a plug hanging near the pedals, any idea what they are?

It's also got a HKS turbo timer which I have no idea how to use haha

So I plan on tidying all this up :D

What power are these? Aren't there strict laws on modifying cars in NZ?
