    Looking to buy an S-Chassis!

    Well the Polo is going next month hopefully and I am in the market for an S-Chassis!

    Once the polo has been paid I should have about 8,000 8,500 to spend.

    Looking for a fairly clean rust free S14 or S13, few mods would be nice not too fussed if it's stock or not, not too fussed on millage either as long as it has been treated well!

    Fire me a message on here if you have anything or fire me a text on 07517411920!

    Thanks!

    For that sort of money you could probably import a decent spec'd example if you cant find anything in the UK. Ireland will be worth a look also

    I'm not sure that's the case anymore Mel. Think you'd struggle to import a 180sx for under 10k looking at the current import market

    You'll not get a decent one under 1000000JPY

    Doubt you’d even get a 14 Q for 8500 these days importing. Last clean 14 K I saw come in was 12 landed, and I saw one up Newcastle way that landed at 15k and it was immaculate.

    Use Facebook chap, lots of U.K. cars around for your money.

    I doubt it. A fellow that I work with had a lot higher budget and after looking at the prices of importing a clean S14/15, he gave up and ended up buying an RX7.

    Be careful buying cheap- check for rust, and then for rust... so be patient and look around and check it well for rot underneath. Rear sills, strut towers, etc.

    I mean, if you are prepared to do a bit of work, there is an absolute icon of an S13 in need of work, but it's just over half your budget leaving plenty of money for high quality repair work and a new livery. Some super, super tasty parts on it.
