- i don't own enough of them
- they are no longer in production
- didn't ALL come stock w/lsd
- rusty hatches (some w/the wings torn off of them)
- no USDM S13 kouki's (to keep us from getting raped by having to buy jdm tails)
- no stock option for fixed headlights (S13)
- driver's seat bolster rips faithfully (S13)
- no glass headlight housings (zenki S14)
- factory turbo option would be nice
- S14 manuals in ridiculously low numbers

s13's get the lucky fish bowl trunk with all the water leaks and the lovely sunroof wistle at freeway speeds,
also the leather in my car that is so slippery i slide all over the car and hit my head on the sunroof frame from the low headroom,
and rattles in all the plastic around the car

other than those little quirks they are amazingly fun cars

oh yeah super hicas for drifting

^^^ easy fix
1. my sunroof doesnt leak or whistle (thank god)
2. get bucket seats
3. stuff plastic so theres no rattle, i did this right after i got my sub

whats wrong is that i only have an S13 SR, and should have an S14 with S15 conversion, RB25.
now thats what sucks.

I just take out my ashtray and make do with the opening as my cup holder in my S13....

Also add 1 or 2 for S13s.

I can't squeeze more than 2 chicks in my car. Not behind the driver's seat. Well, maybe super-skinny ones.

This one is only me I think. I can't flash my hi-beam at some a**holes on the roads without having my headlights pop-up all the time. But again, maybe I can just horn... yet I don't like to use it.

The highbeam thing does get on my nerves a little, i always forget that it takes like 5 seconds after i hit the lever for the lights to pop up and even then i gotta hold it back towards me or the headlights will just pop up and go back down. I'm just gonna buy a damn spotlight and keep it in my passenger seat, and when someone does something stupid...BAM! lit up like christmas

hahaha~ Maybe we can put on those Rally style hood- / roof-mounted HUGE lights. Certainly work the best~

not enough aftermarket support for the all motor fellas, it has enough displacment , and displacemnet owns . if a lil b18 can get into the 220whp mark then a ka24de should smash those numbers

I got a 4 pt harness to get rid of the auto seat belt on the driver side, and I have one ready to put on the passenger side.

waiting on some "racing" seats

workin on custom turbo, piecing together now

need an LSD

basically everything that "sucks" about the 240 is fixable, and everything that is cool about it just gets better, so really I have nothing to complain about with my 240, it sure is a pimp ride

- 95-96 zenkis dont have the oem sideskirts..
- only the SE fawkers have the 5-lug and fogs and front lip (95-96) or sideskirts (97-98) why cant have best of both worlds on one car already?!
