Hi guys, been on here for a little while when I still owned my skyline, as knew if I sold it I wanted to try an evo, so the skyline sold, I searched all the selling sites, Facebook pages etc , was looking for a 5/6 and liked the look of the rally art ones, then I came across a few TME which I fell in love with, any way long story short found a seller on here selling a canal blue TME, I know some people think they're the worst colour but I love the colour the car was imported last April so coming up to being in the country a year, seems to be a decent car, I have already made a few changes and maintenance that I felt it needed

Here are some pics of when I first got it

So after doing some research I found that the car was imported via DCY Europe, which I was happy with as have followed them on Facebook for a while, found this pic from when the car was imported

So when I got the car home , I took it to a local garage to get it up on the ramp and give the car a good going over... all seemed well, has been undersealed on import along with all the belts replaced, was told the suspension was stock but turned out to have APEXI N1 GOLD coilovers which I am very happy with, was also told the exhaust was a stainless system but was actually totally stock, but had seen better days,, this was going to be upgraded to a stainless 3" system

Front tyres were worn on the inner edges due to excessive camber

Slightly noisey wheel bearing

But overall not too bad,

Let the fun begin

Next up was a damn good service so ordered the parts and cracked on

The car had intermittent rattle from the lifters, but the fresh Mobil 1 oil sorted that out thank god and new spark plugs BPR8ES gapped to .6 as recommended by Lee bell ready for a map once all the parts were gathered and fitted

Ohh and my private plate was finally transferred

Plate looks better than the old one, is it 12X6? Maybe think about getting 13X7(I think that's what I have) to cover the recess at the front?
