OwO ayyy welcome on the forums bro and damn you've got a s14 just a shame it's a kouki not a zenki haha but it's fine. Damn the import costs are so expensive these things in jpn cost like 700000 yen for a stock good condition one lol rip. If you need any help with building it or smthg i have a nissan specific shop in utsunomiya, japan so i could help you somehow i think, just hit me up in dm's if i can help you
Actually i like the Kouki more thank the Zenki, i'm really into old Volvo's so i guess its the sharp edges on the Kouki
Over here cars, and everything about them is expensive.. The government turns up the taxes, thinking they will save the planet by doing so
Will contact you if there is something i need

Welcome man, glad you got some inspiration from all the builds going on here! Also nice to see someone on the European side, not many threads from there. But for Norway i've heard maintaining a car over there is quite tough. Anyway you got a very clean 200SX, it was a rare find in such good shape! Basic maintenance is a clever idea for whatever used car you buy but i wonder how you'll upgrade it!
(You started this really well, it's good to look for cars on actual used car sites! You can also add a license plate to match it even better, there is a template for a Norway one if you want.)
It's weird not more norwegian or swedish people share their builds here, because there is a lot of great builds going on around
Worst about maintaining cars in Norway is the rust, because in the wintertimes they use so mush salt on the roads it just eats the cars
Luckily i live a bit from the city's, and they don't use so mush salt here.
This 200SX has been used only in the summer (Luckily).
Time will show what upgrades i'll do, but i want it to sit a little lower.. So i guess Coilovers will be bought pretty soon
(License plates will be mounted, just forgot there was a norwegian template)

Welcome to the community! Yeah, I've heard of Norway government's very bitter stance on petrol-powered cars the days, as well as their 'electric-car only' plans for the upcoming years. Some years ago, I heard that a new Peugeot 208 GTi costs around 30k GBP over there due to sky-high taxes and all, whereas the rest of Europe had them around 1/3-1/2 of said price. If you're wondering, 30k GBP can net you a fresh Civic Type-R or even Ford Focus RS back then around Europe.
But at the same time, I love Norway for several auto-related things. It is the home of the Lankebanen circuit at Hell, which hosts the Norwegian round of FIA World Rallycross championship. The semifinals and final phase of the race weekend there are usually guaranteed to deliver hot actions
. It is also the home of Gatebil festival, where a lot of awesome time attack and drift machines gather around in a flurry of sound, action, and madness. I still remember the days when I binged Kenneth Alm, Kenneth Nornes, Radni Molhampour and many more blast around Rudskogen for hours, thanks to Speedhunter's coverage of the event. And finally, Top Gear had a great episode
Moving to your roleplay, you started quite great actually, considering the place you're living in
Exterior-wise it is indeed quite healthy. And yeah, that 19 inch wheels isn't exactly my taste either, so good job on switching to the stock wheels. Internal-wise the car appears to be healthy as well, since temperature sensors are relatively easy to buy. Taking out the diff however might need some effort, since it's welded after all.
Overall, you're going on a great start and I'm quite interested to follow your updates already (Bonus points for using real car ads for that extra realism). Keep up the great work, I'm looking forward to more of your petrolhead adventures
Being a car enthusiast/petrolhead in Norway can be though sometimes.. But still, we got some really cool cars and project going on all around!
"Lånkebanen" "Rallycross in Hell" is just about an hour of driving from where i live
Been at Gatebil's main event at Rudskogen three times, one of the best events i have ever been at. All the awesome cars, both for show and action.. The party's and the atmosphere aound the whole event is just amazing, defiantly worth the trip
I'm glad you like the start of my RP (were actually planning this for some time so it could be as realistic as possible
I think that for a 23 y/r old car, its not to bad, only thing that concern me is the welded diff.. why not just buy something that actually works without ruining the car. But don't look like it has been running the welded diff for to long, no twisted parts or bad bushings
