Incidentally, I also have a full set of the SuperPro poly bushes, but never got around to installing them. Of course, now that I have a spare (used) set of the Nismo links...
Anyway, let's take a look underneath.
|I get excited every time...|
|Left rear - silver is new, black is repainted|
|Right rear wheel - check out that beautiful "new" driveshaft!|
|This may be easier to see the extent of new goodness..|
|Left front wheel|
|Left front wheel, different angle - looks like I need to steam clean the oil pan!|
So a few things. One, they removed the plastic brake air guides - they were broken as the upper fin parts had snapped off. These original Nismo ones, no longer available, cost about 19,000 yen per pair but the new dry carbon ones Nismo offers cost about ten times more! Not sure if I want to pay for parts my car probably doesn't need, given the oversize R35 brakes I now have. I guess I COULD go aftermarket here...
|But damn they look good|
|So this adds about 150,000 yen to the price. What fool has these installed? (Thanks to Ale$$andro for the photos)|
Three, yeah my tires are old. Will have to replace them soon. And yes they look huge, very meaty. NISMO is pushing me to replace with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4s, but I don't know. Doesn't feel right to put on French tires on a Japanese car...And what is the current best Japanese tire out there?
Four, yes there are still many parts that need to be refreshed. Financially speaking, this is all I could afford at this time. Plus, most parts can be cleaned up or replaced at home, so I intend to do that as much as possible. To me that's part of the fun of ownership.
Fifth, I did mention in a previous post that Omori Factory did a few special extras - that's for the next post!
