    Hi guys, i need some tips in buying an ae86
    I'm after an AE86 Trueno. This would be a daily car for me and not planning to take it to track, so i'm welling to spend up to 10k for good condition one with no mods.

    What do u think of this one?

    Seems like a reasonable price considering you'd probably pay that for similar condition in Japan at the moment. Then have to pay to get it here and compliance.
    If its in good condition, its a good price.

    the rear wiper has been put on incorrectly
    if he goes to engage it will go down and score the shit out of the paint

    Having an engine of this kind up front cant be good for balance and stability right? But i'm sure it goes like the clappers!

    10K can buy you a car that is still quick and a hell of a lot more comfortable... unless your drive to work consists of driving through the mountains I don't see it worthwhile

    yeah top one is nice though.
    the 170kw isnt that bad
    you could throw a turbz manifold onto the side of the red one and get similar power...
    but it pisses me off when people assume your hooning cos your car is loud, has bald tires, a roll cage, fresh bake and dinted bumpers!!
    Or driving in a wolf pack.
