    lol talk about a massive delay, I never thought to scroll down the page :P yes it's the automatic. I bought the car specifically because of its price because I was flat broke at the time due to my insurance policy failing me (totalled my Mazda3 and owed like 8K). This is the result, and now that I'm back on even footing I'm throwing about 3K at it this summer. I figure if I'm going to drive this for the next 5+ years, given how many of them I see in Niagara Falls, it should stand out

    Interesting fitment on the wheels..Did you end up spec'ing the TEINs with the sway-bar link tabs on them?

    No I've got the tabless ones, but getting the metal and cutting / bending it to shape will be a weekend job come spring - I've put in the Eibach "camber bolts" (long and thin) - so adding a bracket isn't going to run out of threads.

    The fitment is... yeah, interesting lol. I wanted 17x7.5 - but apparently no one buys those, and I didn't feel like paying 1K for rims, so I got the 17x8.5 for ~650 since they came with tires... which would've been a deal had the rubber not been gouged internally when the guy had them installed.

    As it sits I'm getting flares and installing 3X stiffer springs in the rear (I've got an album showing the mount I made), the camber and a healthy roll of the front now has that all sorted, hard corners just have them tuck inside. The issue is all passenger load goes straight to the rear, and the design of the rear suspension means the tires moves forward as it moves up, so currently if I get heavy enough the tire rubs the fender at 45 degrees forward from the hub. The stiffer springs will fix that on its own but I don't want to add camber to the rear so flares will cover the tread and handle any surprise pot holes.


    stock height - new height at highest setting - side view of rear wheel at that high setting.

    Haha 17s wow...if you spec'd your Tein's with the basic standard march you won't get any tabs with them, only the Nismo S March comes with sway bars, so the Flex-Z series come with tabs.
    The picture bellow shows them equipped to a K13.
