    Default Tuned Maniac, Late Introductions

    Even though I've been joined a few weeks now I never really got around to introducing myself, so here we go.

    Hi, Im Matt Or Tuned Maniac

    I'm originally British and lived in Birmingham but my family moved to Tachikawa, Japan when I was 17. So I had to learn Japanese which was very hard to learn.
    I'm now 26 and my birthday is on the 7th November.
    I live in a studio flat in Okayama City in Okayama.
    I work as a mechanic at Sun Line Racing, which you may have heard of, my dream job.
    Own a heavily modified race 2002 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nur, which I have to put up with uncomortable bucket seats and harnesses everyday, but what the heck its worth it.
    I have also just purchased a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja ZZR1400 in Metallic Flat Spark Black, Seriously Fast, yet to get it tuned or take on a track.

    So thats basically me.

    First off, I'd like to thank everyone for the awesome responses.

    And to King Skyline
    It's quite easy to import a Skyline, and to be honest your probably best off importing one from Japan as they tend to be better quality. Just find a good dealer as always buy from auction not set prices. But when importing preferably get a grade 4.5 or higher or 4 at the least and never go for modified ones. But also never think the start price is about what you will pay as they never go for anywhere near that. And always pay more for a shipping container if it doesnt come default. And always be prepared to drive quite a bit in order to pick it up and if possible have someone see the car in Japan and report back to you and last thing always be prepared to put in extra money for prep and fixing costs as I think you have different laws over there in the U.S. So thats basically it. Just ask me if you need any questions answering.

    I've known about that site for a good 2 years now and have it bookmarked waiting for a good opportunity to buy one. But that time has yet to come.


    I have recently gotten into liking the 2001 Audi S4 B5, I don't really know why but that car is one hell of a beast.
