    Any Import Car enthusiasts ? My cars...
    I'm not sure what the general age/demographic of this board is...lol But I know it ranges from extreme to extreme so I wanted to see if there are any Import car freaks like me on here? Here's my cars....Oh yeah the Infiniti just got lowered with Tein's and a new set of gloss black wheels....

    Daily Driver:
    2000 Infiniti G20t 5-speed


    And the project:
    1997/2002 Mitsibishi Mirage LS 5-speed
    (Fitting the intercooler piping)


    (Before motor swap/turbo crap)


    (With new bumper mock-fitted)

    Lol, yes it is expensive!

    I have Apex Springs with KYB struts on the Mirage and Tein Springs with stock struts on the Infiniti. Yes, the mirage has an intercooler, and a 14b turbo, it's pretty quick...

    The 2.2 Camry's last forever! At a previous job working at an Auto shop we had a few customers with well over 250k on their 2.2 Camrys.....the V6's don't last quite as long though...

    Yup, I have used to have Eibach Prokit springs on the Mirage, but they weren't low enough Tein is a very good brand also! Especially if you can afford their coilovers


    300k wow, thats awesome. I've only seen one car with over 300k on it and it was a diesel Mercedes sedan.... although it definately looked and sounded like it had 300k on it..lol

    Ditch the Infinity and replace it with a Skyline GTR.

    Then get an EVO
