Thanks for the heads up, im looking for a soarer or sc400 too!

To SC owners: How bad is the gas consumpion being a V8? 90/week? if daily driven?
Is it worth going down to the states?

thanks!

Yea the police officer gave me a VI for what he thought was a smaller wheel. My wheel is 36cm, I talked to a place where i will be getting my VI done and he said the cop was just being an asshole. I told the shop my wheel size and stock size and he laughed and said I shouldn't even be here.... The cop also nailed me for having metal pedals... and that is legal. so a waste of 100$! I will be filing a complaint to the RCMP.

If skyline 32 is still wondering. Gas consumption isn't the worst, $70 every 1.5-2 weeks for premium across the border. Only fill up Shell 92 though. I drive a 400 though, not sure how it would be on a 1JZ

let me guess, u got the vi in richmond?
cops there are a bunch of goofs, they dont really know much about what's legal and what's not and they will pretty much give u a vi and anything they see that is not stock will be "illegal"
