Hi guys,

I'm considering swapping my 200sx S14a to an R33 GT-ST.

Do you think it would be worth it? Most people seem to say just get an R33 GTR but I doubt I could afford to insure it at 22 years old with 1 years no claims.

My 200sx in on a V reg (98?) and it's done 60k miles and is running 300bhp.

I paid £8k for it less than 2 months ago and it's a real minter. I've just had the bumper resprayed and the bodywork is in real good condition.

Here are some pics...






Anyone on here looking to do a deal on this drifter :smokin: ?

FSH, oil changed every 3-4k miles with a new oil filter. Only use fully synthetic 5w 40 (motul or silkolene). Clutch and flywheel have only been in for 800 miles and are running perfectly. Had gearbox oil change when they went in to some good stuff and the brake fluid changed to the dot 5.1 stuff.

Here are the mods...
SR20DET - Custom full stainless exhaust system & de-cat, APEX type 2 fmic, NISMO-555 injectors, blitz air filter, boost gauge, GREDDY pro fec b II boost controller, HD STG2 CHIP, DENZO plugs, walbro fuel pump, fidanza lightened alloy flywheel, act extreme organic clutch, kyb shocks, eibach springs, 4 new eagle f1's, brembo grooved discs, ferodo ds2500 pads and goodridge braided brake lines.

I also have the std spoiler, std wing mounted intercooler and std airbox included with the car.

I have since took off the wheels and sold them. The old wheels were 19's and they seemed too big. I'm now running it on the standard 16" wheels and it handles superbly especially on the eagle f1's.

Cheers,

Chris

Well I paid £8k for it 1 month ago and since replaced the clutch, flywheel and brakes so i'm looking for roughly the same I paid for it.

Between £8-8.5k I think is a reasonable price.

It's only done 60k miles which is low mileage for a 200sx plus it's a uk car so cheaper insurance.

The other car i've been looking at apart from the skyline is the Subaru Impreza STI Type R (97). I know this is a skyline forum but how do people rate these cars? better than the GT-ST on 200sx?

looks like you did pay to much in my opinion...

if your looking to spend around 8-10k on a skyline, then i would get an R32 GTR.

some people say its the ugly one, but the one in the right colour is definately a winner in my opinion.

R33's are my favourite cars...but if i had to choose between a 8k r33 GTSt and a 10k R32 GTR...i know what i would have chooses...

a GTR off course:)

I love the 200 but the gts-t is a completely different car all together and a stock car is a nice cruiser and a modified one can be an animal...same as the 200....

Take one for a test drive and that will help you make up your mind
