Some of you know / suspected but I didn't want to post up 'till the previous owner sorted himself out with a car. I went down to Blackpool on Sat to pick up my second GTi. This is a car I'd wanted near two years ago but couldn't accord Nismo Billy's asking price when it was sold...
Picked up a new motor three weeks ago now, the same day that the GTi went away.
1999 T Reg 200SX S14a
A folder that's literally bursting full of receipts and history...
Standard car other than the alloys and a very quiet back box
Had a bit of a random meet with Chris today to help him clean his engine bay which unfortunately didn't come up as well as hoped due to some sealent crap all over his engine bay.
Gave him advice on how to sort this so he should be good soon. With two freshly cleaned almeras there was no...
Welcome my friends (and foes ;P) to my Nissan Almera GTi.
It's a V Reg Phase 2 GTi
Full standard bodykit
Lowered 30mm on unknown springs
Powerflow stainless steel exhaust
Itg tri-foam Induction kit
Sony 10 Disk CD multichanger
"Team Heko" Wind deflectors
The usual GTi...
Well today I picked up a V reg P2 GTi, in silver. It's in decent body condition and very good under body condition.
Driving the four hours back home was like a dream compared to the N16. I am not turning my back on the N16 or nay saying it at all, but the GTi is very under-rated car which...
I spotted a pretty cool looking 5 door silver N16 p1 with what looked like 16" Oz Supertourismos, back box and lexarse lights (doh) just as I was arriving wih my steelies on haha.
Pretty sure it had skirts and deffo had spoiler.
Anyone know who this was?

They damn near killed me last week when I was taking a photo of another car and came roaring past the back of me.
Paint was a nice color, but didn't really look very uniform over the car.
Pretty sure I saw you @ EC on Sat in the Si. You never even came over to say hello. *sniffle*.
The orange Pulsar Gti-R was at Stirling cruise the following night. Never seen it before, I thought it was maybe a poor replica but it had the works under the bonnet.
Down at asda tonight. I was down dropping off a mate at asda and noticed a blue n15. Didn't see what it was but it had bumpers (no skirts) and a spoiler. Also had 17's (maybe bigger) and looked lowered. Be interested to know who it was, as it looked like a nice motor.
Ok guys, thought I'd post in here to get a thread started to keep my updates going as there should be a bit happening in the land of my car over the next few weeks and months.
Got wheels coming next week and all things going well, should have it lowered, exhausted and possibly colour coded...
No idea how good they are, but for £64 delivered (they claim half price) it seems like a good buy...
Just ordered a exterior door handle and surround. Anyone got any instructions on how to remove the old one?
Would be changing passenger side. It's all cracked and stuff as well as having some blue shite all over it.
Decided I want 16's as insurance company say no to lowering springs (oh well, we'll wait till it's renewal time) and just want to improve the look a wee bitty (alloy + bigger wheels) without compromising ride comfort with real low profile tyres (not 17's).
I did want the bk333 5...
The last few days I've noticed a noise coming from the osf wheel. It's between 10 and 30mph when doing anything but braking (if you touch the brakes, it goes away). It sounds like a really deep whine and it feels like a rubbing/grinding through the wheel. It's also VERY loud.
Was out last night for a wee drive on some back roads in the car and realised how quite shocking the lights are on my car (as well as quite how respectable a handler a standard 1.5 is!)
The aim seems to be fine, but just not powerful enough. All "wee yellow" colour as well. Obviously I'm not...
G'day guys, I have a query for any painters / bodywork guys out there.
Basically, unfortunately - a couple of weeks ago, the mera decided to pick on a 4x4 and needless to say, the 4x4 won. No major damage though as fight was fairly small. Anyway, the mera needed a new face (Bumper / bonnett /...
