    I thought it was a dick comparison forum. In more ways than one.

    Every day that goes by, I feel a greater desire to get another S2k. Going to try and wait the market out a bit though.

    Ya that’s pretty awesome. I want a driver though, so I’d look for something in decent shape with ~80-100k km on it. Less than that and I’m paying a premium for low kms (which I don’t care about).

    I don't want to know what mine would sell for, with only 104k on it.

    edit: *I don't want my wife to know*

    Drift tax is the real inflation. Change my mind.
    Do people still drift? I thought that shit was finally dead and gone. It has definitely contributed to the absolute vacuum of availability of 240's forsure. Fucking drifting.

    What could you list yours at vs what could you sell? Hell there are ones listed for 22k with 300,000 kms. I bet you could get 25k toot sweet

    It's the Americans. As usual they are about 15 years behind the rest of the world in all things. They are going nuts for anything JDM, RWD, turbo, or RHD. They have that 25 year old "RHD classic" car import rule.

    Seen a couple similar ones on BAT got for about ~$20K USD. FB marketplace and groups though is an absolute shit show. A whole lot of "I know what I have" owners with cars that are cut to hell and seen plenty of walls.

    Rusty KA auto S13 going for $10k wtf bbq? Not as crazy as Supras, NSX's, or FDs but really stupid money.

    My wife's extended family from California came for a visit couple months ago. Their mid 20 year old sons were just swooning over it, taking pics like its a Bugatti or something. Americans are weird.

    It's a classic now. No different than 80's kids loving 60's muscle cars. They live in a sea of boring vehicles just like in the 80's as well.

    Thats insane... I figured the JDM craze wouldn't affect LHD s13 / s14s... but I was wrong.

    Crazy thing is you can still grab RHD S14's and S15's for reasonable prices landed it seems.. like 9-13k USD from my 1 minute google search anyways. Meanwhile ratbagged 300k km ones are 20k here.... I just would hate one day to have a RHD drive car as a 40 year old lol

    Richardchan2002 oem is best

    So you buy a car that is just loaded and done.

    I lost the desire too for a good 5 years
    So true still

    The only exception might be tires. In some cases.

    So, buy a new car at MSRP right now before the 2023 model rollover, or wait until 2023 and expect a MSRP bump?

    Depends if the new model is differentiated enough to justify the anticipated higher cost. What car?
