  1. 2000 Nissan Silvia - $13,500

    Make : NISSAN SILVIA Transmission : Manual Kilometres : 159 Price : $13,500 Condition : Used Year; 2000 Nissan Spec R JDM model (import) KMS: 159,*** Transmission; Manual Colour; VE Crunch (holden commodore colour, looks mint, photos dont do it justice) drive typre; Rear LSD diff Wheels: Lorenzo D1r's 17" (gutter rash on some but fixable) Tyres: Kumho 245/ (80%) Location; Canberra and Batemans bay (NSW <- only if the drive is gonna be worth it) petrol tank; 60L, highway driving i can get up to 700kms. city driving 450km. city quick driving 400km lol Rego: 11-01-14 Will consider swaps with cash adjustments my way as im after a small daily but im after a daily no more then $5000-6000 Mods are as followed: * EL plasma dials (come with but not installed, wired but dials are not plugged in an over the current speedometer) * Exceedy heavy duty clutch, 9months old (previous owner had it done 2 months before i purchased it. hard clutch, very good) * Dual stage boost controller (not installed but brand new $300 will come with it) * GKtech bash plate (comes with it not installed) * Sountstream 220w Amp + MTX RTS 04 Sub ( great sound ) * fusion powerplant front component speakers * JVC Rear 6x9s (also have powerplant series components not installed in the rear which will come with it) * T28 BB turbo stock on 8psi * Saber Front mount intercooler with new intake pipe (shinny as) * Splitfire coil pack + coil pack cover (think its 550cc) * HKS turbo timer, doesnt always work but a wiring problem (seemed to have malfunctioned after it was installed in centre console) * HIDs 6000k * tinted rear tail lights * tinted side indicators * 12month old paint job * Freshly spray painted Front bar (in shop atm) * no fog lights at front * Genuine Gear knob * Rare Momo steering wheel with air bag (everyone tries to buy it off me for $400) * genuine nissan silvia floor mats * Apexi Pod filter * Custom made Pod filter box * Drift Blow of valve (sounds sick) * Tinted windows * Never been tracked * pushing 178KW at the wheels without boost controller installed * BC coil overs all round * New front rotors * new break pads all around (front right one still squeaks a bit) * battery is in working order * Carbon fiber wrapped CD surround * Doublin Din Kenwood Head unit (usb, Aux - iphone/samsung compatable, also charges units) * GKtech front strut * just had its 158,000 kms service (new oils throughout, diff, gearbox, engine) * all windows are perfect, no cracks * rear windshield wiper I tend to do a lot of highway driving from canberra to batemans bay and to sydney as it racks up the kms. previous owner imported it and painted it. The car has been flawless every since purchased and it has never been tracked. The car was given a mad spray job a few months after he imported it but sold it to myself as navy placement took him elsewhere. ive had it for 7 months now and never had a problem with it. front bumper is being sprayed as the clips snapped and literally fell off my car and scratched all the paint. frame is good but foglights are no longer available. do have 1 left and working which will come with the car. Car was recently raised to legal height as my mate got busted for having a low car and i didnt wanna fork out that kind of money to get it fixed. there is a bit of poke on the wheels and camber is at -2. in the past month my speedomoter motors failed so i had to purchase a second hand one in working order with 96000kms (arrives monday). so you will just read the speedo as being at 159,000kms plus whatver you have added onto the 96,000kms ,no issue there.i have never been pulled over for having an obvious defective quality with the car and considering i dont hoon around/ pod filter is covered/ Bov is tucked/ and height is higher everything is in acceptable working order for a new owner to take it to a new home. This car is definitely one of the better looking s15's out there because how the colour stands out against any others. I had many plans to put into the car (as u can see from my have but not installed list lol) but university and getting centrelink is not the easiet way to fund maintaining this car and me wanting to drive it everywhere! only reason im not selling this car for 18k-25k is because its only a run around with the stock potential to put so much more into it and the kms. This car has never been in an accident and not listed on REVS as i checked when i purchased it and was easily insurable for myself being 21 with the NRMA with windshield cover for $1358 This car will breeze through rego as my mechanic in Batemans bay knows the car and says after its been raised there is no dramas. This car has NSW rego also because at the time of purchase dickson in canberra wouldnt have passed it for being to low and a few other implications i ironed out over my course of having it. Im not in a DESPERATE rush to sell it but i would definitely like it gone in the next month. I have taken into consideration that the shittier quality s15s are about 11-15k and the good range with same kms as mine are from 15-25k. I think its acceptable and reasonable to place mine on the market for 15k and have a ONO with reasonable offers considered. i hope you like the car and give me a call on; 0429109328 - Chris is my name and ill take any calls. best off texting me and ill call you back because of uni or text me wanting to know any details... THANKS!

    Hey guys! Just an update! i recently (tonight) wrote up a DIY for nightshading your side indicators. This can be viewed here http://forums.mightycarmods.com/show...ors-S15-global Here is the end result also I also got arround to wrapping my CD surround in carbon fibre wrap. NOW , this did initially look easy but for the love of god, make sure you persavere with the wrap, be tight and stringent with the bubbles otherwise the end result will not suffice thus wasting hours of your time lol. I had a few MINOR bubbles up the top right of the surround which cannot be seen by the naked idea due to where it sits. i also tore a bit down next to the cig lighter but cut a piece to match it. Was not worth spending another 2 hours re wrapping it due to a minor fault. nonetheless im stil impressed at the result and will leave it to see how long it takes to bubble if it does .. so heres the end result rsz_img_0582.jpg hope you all like it, leave feedback, suggestions etc and ill continue to update this thread! next will be turbosmart dual boost controller install cant wait!
  5. S15 electric side mirror problems

    hey bro! got the electricals all fixed etc. he said that a common problem with all motorized folding mirrors is when people wash their cars and hose directly behind the glass pannel. he said that can which in my case corroded away at the wires etc. So he replaced all the wiring, wired up my front splits and rear splits, heatshrunk and soldered all the lines. also fixed my right mirror adjustment not working. it now works up and down but not left to right (motor fail, but can use my hand as its on the driver side) all of this was $140 .. was stoked haha. sounds boss now and looks sick when both mirrors fold in automatically hope this helps you out mate!

  7. Murdocks S15 Spec r JDM build :D

    hey man http://www.turbosmartdirect.com.au/product_p/ts-0105-1002.htm just picked up this beauty for $180 new and under warranty, never opened .. so happy haha. gets here saturday and awesome man! will definitely look at getting that done i go home for 3 days on thursday. got it booked into the auto electrics to get all the wires soldered and wired properly so ill have a sound system for $60 ahaha. he will fix my boost gauge light as well as it wont light up but still works :/ ... and yes! i need a new gear nob. my genuine nissan one is worn to bits and looks shabby. but ive taken it off so thats sweet. just a replacement grey one like you said!
  8. Murdocks S15 Spec r JDM build :D

    haha thanks for the tips man i think im gonna try the Carbon fibre wrap now that i have already purchased it lol so i may as well considering there arent any other panels that i think would benefit from a cover up. I do btw like the idea of a gloss black finish. i think that would make the car look mint inside, and a good cover of clear coat gloss etc. as for the suede gear boot. is there anywhere to find a good one? and are they hard to replace. on my current one there are clips etc that clip in underneath, so would the replacement come with those clips? or would i need to insert the new ones with the clips ? and well what i will do is give the EL gauge a shot first. i mean i dont have a dimmer on my JDM model for some reason and the back light behind the cluster basically are non existent i looked at the possibility of LEDS behind it but they all got bad reviews for soft spots around the tacho range. so ill try the gauges without f**king anything up hopefully. and let you know how it goes! thanks for the advice!
  9. Murdocks S15 Spec r JDM build :D

    i might just have to do that mate could be a good panel to learn how to paint properly. if not my cousin is a painter and said he would do it cost price. so thats pretty good and yeah man its such a great wheel. i do like the generic Nissan steering wheel but the condition of this one is impeccable and will be kept well groomed lol
  10. Murdocks S15 Spec r JDM build :D

    Just an update i totally forgot about one major mod i elected to do prior to even buying a car haha it was the purchasing of these Plasma EL dials i thought they looked a bit shonky but turns out that the ones i purchased are genuine cover ups. RRP in aus is anything over $250 but i scored a bargain with online japan yahoo auctions and got them delivered for $80 including import fees etc. should be here within 21 days and im gonna do a DIY installation of how to install them for anyone else these lights may not look the bees knees in the day time as they are blue and white. but my lord, at night time they are king shit in the dash haha heres a pic of them : D
  11. Murdocks S15 Spec r JDM build :D

    Well hello MCM community and abroad! My names Chris but am usually referred to as Murdock, wonder why? , maybe cos my last names "Murdock" but who knows. Im a new member on the MCM website and a few other informative forum based websites such as silvia nsw . com and JDMST. all provide a really good community base for discussion among the modding world. Being someone who has always liked looking at cars but never really had the money and know how to play around with them unlike some mates who appear quite regularly on here i decided that it was time to spoil myself with my free time and hard earned savings and get something i could work on and improve my knowledge. I do know that knowledge with cars doesnt come overnight and is acquired through extensive research and for me the best method of learning is getting your hands dirty. I like to think the motto that anything you can fix yourself you should attempt and if it goes to shit try again, if it goes to shit again! pay someone lol .. but for now, i plan on dismantling, experimenting and learning with my new car. So without further a due, i would like to show you a few photos of my new car and also have a quick write up of the current and known about mods that have been installed and also have a section with mods more or less suited to my budget in order of priority. Here is my 2000 model JDM spec R S15, My initial thought on the car was WOW , this colour has really struck a nerve with me and considering the price we scored it for, the already installed mods, and the mods ive recently found out (previous owner hadn't known about all of them) i was thoroughly impressed. I like to when i have the opportunity to have something a little bit out of the ordinary but still within respectable reason. so this colour was a god sent. As you can see it boasts a full/partial (unsure due to the year) Aero body kit custom sprayed to a Holden ve "crunch" green. or like my mum calls it, shreks shit haha. god love the old *... The paint work is relitively new i believe, maybe less then 12 months. (owner told me over the phone but forgot) but after a good inspection it has VERY minimal wear on it, no fade and one mark on the rear bumper i plan on rectifying in good time. The interior as you can see looks pretty neat with but up close but with a better camera you would see that the center consoles both where the cup holders are and the cd/gear leaver surround are scratched just enough to warrant me wanting to tidy it up. The engine bay is in immaculate condition and i really do like the cross colour with the white and green, like i said, a bit different is always good it Does need a bit more black and i think im going to remove all the rubber hoses and replace them with a BLACK silicon hoses as long as they are able to be replaced due to the aftermarket parts under DA hood! This will give the car a nice black and stock look which is what most people would like unless they are show ponies... As for mods, money is not readily available to me as much as what i would have preferred but over time and either second hand or new parts they will eventually come and be bolted on to the car and this thread A list of current and known mods ive seen over the car in the past week are as follows Turbo smart Drift BOV, BC Coilovers, HID headlights, Car alarm (mongoose) HKS turbo timer Fog lights, Tinted windows, Window lip, HKS Turbo (trying to find out exactly what model) Split fire coil packs, 18inch Black Lenso D1RS Wheels, Xforce 3" full flow cat back ZORST! and they are just the ones i know about. it does have an aftermarket inter-cooler and from what i can make out its a "blitz" model (will clarify when im home again) The sound system is quite good in the car especially for the cabin size haha. The previous owner had installed a ken-wood double din head unit with iPod connect and all dat shiz which i was happy about. He also installed 2 6" fusion splits at the back which i had to rewire as they were playing up. The previous owner has also got 2 x 6" splits in the front doors but for unknown reasons he hasn't got them connected up to the head unit. (the wires behind the head unit are an absolute mess, so i am taking it to our auto electrician mate to hook it up properly, heat shrink the connections and solder the points for extra durability. (would probably have a stab at it myself but have no experience in wiring myself, nor the placement and no tools. so a mere $55 to do it properly is little to be worried about IMO) As you can see from the interior photos the boost gauge is a chucking a funky wobbly on me and deciding not to sit on the housing properly, THIS HAD TO BE RECTIFIED! due to it being a 52mm gauge and the pod holder is 60mm i used some trusty double sided tap (good quality) and it sits upright and without the need to spin around again. BUT! due to me fiddling around with the wires at the back and whatever else i effed up in the process when i turned the car on and ran it the light illumination didnt work although the gauge itself did. Unsure what i had done , maybe pulled a bit hard on the red and black wire joint and dismembered it from its little socket im not quite sure. Input to this would be helpfull Moving alongsiessss ... the car has an apparent "limited edition MOMO steering wheel" only seen on JDM models and a few at that. my first post on silviansw.com a guy inboxed me wanting ti pay $350-400 for it haha i was like aww man, thats nice but i have to keep it now. especially considering the condition its in also NOW! i thought i might skip all the intros into each specific part of the car and just move along directly to what i would like the car to have stuck, welded, painted, and bolted on haha... its not much but small things can make a big difference 1st thing - this is the ultimatum for MCM fans.. the mightycarmods.com sticker. My car has 187kw stock. but with that white strapped baby on my rear window its sure to be pushing the 200kw mark. This item is in the mail with my lenyard and on its way to its new home 2nd thing - This car is in a ABSOLUTE need for a polish/wax/buff .. i did say the paint job was newish but the previous owner MUST have tried to drift this automobile on a fresh laid bit of tar. nearly each body kit part has the tiniest bits of tar on it and because its stubborn as f*** to get off im gonna spend a day getting rid of it all. it doesnt appear on the photos but up close and in person , those black dots just ruin it for me and i want to get some good DSLR photos when its at its best.. 3rd thing - Polish and clean the engine bay, the intercooler pipes need to be cleaned, the fan cover needs to be sprayed BLACK, the rubber hoses need to be replaced with BLACK silicon hoses (as long as the measurements are on par with the stock rubbers), Needs a new battery... it died on me the day i was fixing the car sound. so had to charge it up and whatnot. but such a small battery for a car with so many electrical components. 4th thing - Rocket cover i would like to paint while also restoring the nissan logos on the top. Any ideas of colours would be cool ;D im still unsure of what would be a nice colour, possibly just BLACK It out lol but inputs are welcome. 5th thing - Nightshade the orange side indicators to give it a flush black look running down the side. I had a can of shade spare. i just have to keep in mind that the cops must be able to see the amber colour 200m away. so i may not be able to go BLACK but just black haha. opinions? 6th thing - one of the wheels (think back right) has hit a pot hole the size of Medusa arse hole and dinged it unfortunately ... i Plan to fix this myself after watching wheel restoration videos. could save $150, the rims also need to be rubbed back due to gutter **** rash and painted appropriately. 7th thing - WHAT BREAK CALIPER COLOUR would look flush and nice on this car. keep in mind that the car is green, (not the common green so green calipers prob wouldnt look good unless it was mixed to the same code as the body). i was thinking gold or black? 8th thing - angel eyes baby. cant go past a good pair from justjap or yahoo japan. not after the whole headlight kit for like $500, seen DIY packages for $100-200 depending on quality. they make your car look like caspers **** buddy at night roaming the streets lol. and considering the headlights on this car are pretty crisp already it just another reason to flaunt its beautiful eyes... 9th thing (but should probably be at the start) is the interior parts needing a bit of TLC , correct me if im wrong or go haywire on my arse if u disagree but i intend on carbon fibre wrapping with 3d DINOC 3m wrap the cd cluster surround to give it dat 3d feeeelz and new look to it. i was contemplating doing the whole middle console between both driver and passenger seats but realised that the whole thing would blend in and look a bit meh. so i may rub back the cup holder area and spray it properly and coat it with the same colour as it already has. remove the deep scratches and make it look and smell nice cos we all know that paint fumes make u high and feels amazing haha WELL GUYS! thats all im gonna write up now. i had writers cramp for god sake due to this shitty keyboard lol. i do know and understand most of you would probably like to see a thread more dedicated to the engine and performance of the car but myself coming from lancers and shit slow mobiles to this for me does not require any more power ha ha. ATM anyways . id like to be personally happy with how the car looks while i drive it with that being said making sure the engine and its components are all in working order which they are. So visual mods will be more prevalent in this build and i will more then likely make DIY's for everything i do as something to do and look back over once completed. If you would like to see the progress of this car please subscribe to the thread, also give me as much information you have attained over the years as new info is good info and ill incorporate it in when i make decisions on what and how to do things in the future. Thanks for taking the time to read this and i hope you all enjoy the updates Peace crew!
