depends....

The big problem is folks cashing in on the whole drift-maina... so most levins in Ireland will be UK spec ones, i.e Corolla GT Coupes...
which sadly are selling at stupid prices, but generally they sit around the

with body damage... not much cheaper, unless you're really lucky because there's a lot of idiots paying huge amounts for knacked rides.

the best example that less than perfect levin that went for over

Endo, ever considered importing a US spec ae86?

I mean, it's about $4500cdn to import an ae86 from japan.

On average, Ae86's sell for about $3000cdn in GOOD condition, Hell lately there's one floating around toronto for $2700ish, freshly painted, a spare motor, stock and semi-race spec suspension, with winter and summer rims including tires.

There honestly everywhere, and in the US, the ae86 has fallen a deep second to the 240sx (both hatch and coupe) in the drifting craze.

Just avoid club4ag at all costs and you'll be fine.

Also, don't focus heavily on Hatch backs, the coupe has nothing different about it. (ps. Us spec ae86's only need an lsd, and some stiffer springs to really get going sideways nicely)

things about a USDM AE86

1. USDM cars are less powerful
2. when I get it in the country I'm going to have to change it to right hand drive

Nope, and i doubt i will ever Tongue
a) because you know i hate the USDM versions bumpers, so i'd rather pay for a car i like, than save money on a car i don't. and even if i change the bumpers.... i'll still want rid of a lot of the other bits found on the USDM version.
b) i live in a country that is right hand drive, and when i move it will most likely be a country with right hand drive.



but still for me its a hard choice between a '81 RS-X or a '87 Sprinter... failing that i'll get a new bike, a Ducati 916 probably Tongue

oh, while you're at buying from them, could you bring a Skyline along? You know, one of those early, cheap looking models with the extra weight of 4WD, small rims, a color that looks like washed-out black with pieces of dirt in it, a picnic table on the boot and those non-color-matching model badges wink

done that once....
but it was a parked car rather than a wall.

wet road + a slippery layer of mud + trying to get out of the way of someone that was riding my ass.. meant i ended up sliding over this slick patch in the road followed by some airtime, and landing under the wheels of a parked car... all in good fun, i guess.
