Hey guys, my name is Jeremiah and I have moved from St. Louis Missouri to Los Angeles California last week, I made it here on Wednesday after leaving on Monday and I can say I'm not regretting it. I've seen cars here worth more than my cars and house in St. Louis. Bad bitches everywhere, but let's take our minds off that. I moved here for one main reason, and that was the car scene. (And maybe the weather :p) I've submitted my Application to work at a local car shop down here and I've been accepted yesterday.

On my first day of work this old man pulled up in this SW20 MR2. Something didn't look to normal about the car considering he got out of the right side of the car instead of the left, so I came out of the garage to investigate. I spoke to him about the car and he proceeded to tell me the story of how he got it. He shipped it here from Osaka, Japan and told me it was 100% legal. He told me all the parts that were installed in the meantime, I examined the exterior and it had a set of (F) 16x245 (R)16x255 Enkei 92's, sadly the front left wheel was curbed so that was a disappointment, other than that wheel the rest were fine. He also said the car was on H&R Ultra Low Coilovers, and a Recaro Maziora driver seat. So I made a cheeky move and asked him what he'd take for it, he smiled and offered me a lower price than I was expecting. V$ 6,750 for a Legal import. So I smiled back and said, "Deal." Shook his hand and Happily surrendered the money to him and he tossed me the keys saying "Have fun with her." as they landed in my hand. He walked off with a smile on his face.

I examined it a bit closer when I was getting ready to leave the shop that night, and he wasn't lying. This thing was loaded, Drilled Rotors, new tires, and the best part. It only had 121009 Kilometers/75,192 Miles on it. I finally owned a snap oversteer beast.

Welcome to LA friendo! That SW20 is nice, but not worthy for a Speedhunters article (yet). Keep it up, and then we'll talk!

@Nick: Thanks bro, i'm sure the car will be worthy with some heavy work being put into it.

Little update for today.

My wing arrived this morning and I brought it with me to work and had my friend/co-worker Alex help me with the install. We also got the chance to lower the car when the work was slow and nobody was coming in, managed bottom out on the H&R coilovers getting the car to drop a total of 1.5 Inches front to back. It's sitting nice and low now. Gonna have to step up my wheel game and pull up like Jamal on some 17's.

You should really find some bigger wheels so you won't bottom out so much. :D Nice wing btw.

Car has been off for a while. As I went to extra hour classes last week and this week I decided on a new color for the car. And I am not disappointed!

I gave it that nice Metallic Yellow respray with the help of a few friends in my Tech Class, only thing we had to do was mix up the paint that was in the shop which the instructor said is cool for us to do. I think it's pretty good for the second car I've even resprayed.

I'll make sure to get more pictures in the day time, maybe even when I get a new set of wheels.





Phonexius: Just let me know whenever you get here and we can get a little meetup going!

Marcus: Sounds good, let me know what type of wheels and I'll take a look and buy em off you. Also the front left Enkei has some curb rash but they're pretty mint. Thanks again bro!

I'm looking at this and I'm thinking R33 wheels would look interesting if you had a bit more offset and tighter fitment.

Nexion: Thanks alot bro. I've been putting in work trying to get it to what I want it to be! And for the meet, just let me know when you're in town and we could hop in it.

Marcus: I could dig a set of R33 wheels on the MR. It has camber plates so I'll just have to worry about spacers. I'll try them out!

Back with an update. I finally got rid of the Enkei 92's for $900 with tires. And left the car on old tires overnight.

The next morning I got up to a quickly shipped package from my boy Marcus. Solid set of CST Hiper Zeros with tires (F)235/20-17 (R)255/20-17. Payed $850 with great condition tires included.

Fitted them earlier today and took some shots for you guys. Big plans coming soon!

Also shoutout to Marcus for quick overnight shipping again!

So here is the car I was talking about!

The car has 75k Miles on the body, the blown SR20 that was in it has been swapped out for a Red Top 2.0 SR20DET with 62k miles on it. Running 10psi but no power figures were specified. Car runs and sounds amazing while doing so. For the relief, I payed $7250 for the car. Took some pictures before work this morning.

Needed something for a project since the SW20 is basically where I wanted it to be. Will be more plans for both cars.

Back with another update. Picked up a set of Cobra R wheels with good tires for $675.

I took my front bumper off because I maxed out the K-Sport Coilovers and installed the teardrops on the rear as I was planning to hoon around the streets of Cali, not in all new wheels of course! My buddy Dominic got a Drone shot of me drifting around.





After some hooning I got hungry so I dropped by KFC to get some food and discussed with Dom about the goals I want to achieve with the S13.
