Ill join the rest of the Aussies on here and post my ride

1999 A32

This was on custom springs

but i changed to normal lowered springs for ease of use


ps regarding the ST-R kits for A33's your best bet is to contact a dealership or wrecker in the major cities

My 2002 I35 Sport, just bought in January. Every option I believe except Nav. Currently has 94K on it. I'm absolutely in love with everything about the car except for the turning radius

Hey guys. I've been a ORG member for a long time now, but never really posted any pics. Now that I do have some pics up on the net, I wanted to post them here first. And it also happens that im currently trying to sell my fourth-gen Max SE. Check out my car and then check out my FS thread: http://forums.maxima.org/washington-...ml#post8771557

So heres a couple of pics of my baby. She is a fully loaded (no Factory NAV) 00 I30t. I've owned a 96 I30, 94 Max SE, 98 Max SE, 00 I30 Base and then this and it is by far my FAVORITE.

The car has the I35 grill, 00 Max rear window spoiler, AC VVME HIDs in the fogs (8000k), Factory D2R HIDS in headlights(8000K), G35 Sedan 17s, K&N drop-in and 7" non-Nav touchscreen with rear cam and Bass-link. PM me or Email me if you have any questions.
