    you know you own an s13 when you watch your oil pressure gauge more than your speedo..

    you know you own an s13 when your answer to every problem on the car is 'where's the angle grinder...'

    You know you have an S13 when the rock music you usually listen to evolves into Eurobeat.

    You know you have an S13 when people tell you they saw you driving but you didn't see them because you looked so absorbed in your car you were oblivious to anything else.... wondering about the rattle you just heard...

    oh here's another one.

    you know you have an s13 when you turn up at a friend's house and the first they say is 'i could tell it was you because of all the rattling'

    When you know the smell and taste of powdered rust
    '97 180sx with S15 SR20DET & 6MT + a few other bits.
    Recent DIY 1: Front track-rod ends replaced.
    Recent DIY 2: O/S front sill welded.

    If you want any of my old guides, put your e-mail in the PM and I'll send them over (saves me asking ).

    This one is for Mids Si, an S13 owner/bodger at heart

    You know you have an S13 when you have to go to B&Q to get a bigger hammer

    Is it bad that so many of these things have happened/apply to me and I have only owned my S13 less than 4 months...

    fog light switch, turning stereo off for funny noises, noisy lifters in the morning

    oh and the AE86 thing from the other thread, girlfriend doesn NOT find them cool nor the S12

    (some people on the Isle of Wight are clueless...)

    You know you have an S13 when:

    You look in the S13 tech section to find out what that knocking or ticking noise is and how much damage to your wallet

    Mr Bren is always taking your money.

    I know this 1 is off the other list, but I used so many times and it makes me laugh every time.

    You know you have an s13 when somebody asks "has it got a back seat" and you reply.....sort of

    You know you have an s13 when all you dream of, is a car that would just work!
