    Lil EJ's Lil Spec R Aero - "Yuki"

    Hello! So, a quick intro - I'm Esta (EJ) and I live in Stoke on Trent.
    I am now the proud owner of this lovely S15 Spec R Aero! (I've named her Yuki)


    Ive always loved 90s Jap cars and a few years ago I purchased a Mitsi FTO GPX for my daily driver. Unfortunately my commute went from 80 to 180 miles a day so my FTO had to go and a sensible diseasal was purchased.
    As fab as my daily is, Im not a hatch back girl at all, so I gave my sensible head the middle finger and decided to get a weekend car all for myself
    I had 3 cars in mind, R33 GTR V-Spec, Supra RZ and of course the S15. TBH the interiors of the Skyline and the Supra do NOTHING for me, whereas the Silvia ticked every box, I personally think they are beautiful and I love the interiors!
    So, thats when I got in touch with Torque GT, and I asked them to find me a suitable specced car in Japan (always wanted to find my own fresh import!) So long as it was a high grade and in red, white or yellow with fairly low miles I would be happy - I missed out initially on a red one, but then I was quickly found a stunning white one, which in all fairness was probably the better thing for me cus 99% of my cars have been red haha!
    Anyway here she is as I picked her up finally from Torque GT yesterday morning! In the 4 months to sort I'd managed not to tell any of my friends so it was a "ta-da" photo for Facebook so excuse the silly pose lol!



    It was also horrible weather yesterday, couldn't have picked a worse day, high winds and probably the heaviest rain I've ever driven in, so today as it's looking like a bright day I will be cleaning her up and hopefully later will have some lovely photos to share with you all! I really am impressed with her, looks and performance, I had never driven an S15 and yesterdays several hundred miles in her gave me the biggest smile ever
    Here's a pic of her visiting my brother in Somerset on the way home from Torque GT, he has the Cappuccino, and the husbands M3 that took me to fetch her She's parked on the flattest part I could safely leave her haha!



    A bit about her:
    She was bought with 80K miles on the clock, grade 4B and the following options:
    HIDs (factory)
    RAYs gramlights 57 Pro 2004MY 18" alloys
    BC coilovers (apparently like new)
    1 Recaro seat
    Wind deflectors (factory)
    Apex Exhaust

    Currently I have a list as long as my arm of things I will be doing to this car, I love putting my own mark on my cars; but as a second car, and one I intend to keep till I die, it will all be done over a long period of time - Ill keep this post updated!

    Anyway thats a hell of an intro so sorry for the rambling! Hopefully meet some of you at some events or meets in the future! Stoke people be sure to let me know if there is anything local happening

    Congratulations! Lovely looking car straight out the JDM box!! First thing to do is get some rust protection into the sills and get some dinitrol 4941 wax underneath it. That will keep it minty fresh for decades!

    Thank you
    Ahhh already done! Torque do a basic Dinitrol treatment as part of the price, and Ive paid the extra 200 to have the full pre-D treatment and additional rust protection!

    Thanks! I wasnt sure of the wheels at first, the auction photo did them no justice, but when I saw them in the dock photos I fell in love! Can't wait to hear the SSQV fitted to mine

    Thank you! Honestly I am over the moon, the neighbours have been to have a nose as well, except they all think she's my husbands lol!

    Also just been out and washed and polished her, discovered a load of BC paperwork and the spanners in the boot, then in the glovebox found the locking wheel nut key, CD remote and a shed load of other paperwork too, including the original handbook, some Japanese papers and info on the Apex exhaust! So I know what exhaust she has now! Going to nose thro the paperwork in more detail tonight but now Im just having a quick brew to warm myself up and then I am off to get photos!!
