    Wow, that is some recommendation.

    Does he work on more regular cars as well?
    Where about is he based in Ardee or what is the name of the business.

    I don't live too far from Ardee so I might give him a call.

      Yeah he specialises in drift cars and setting them up, but does general road cars too.

      Unless you have adjustable coilovers it'll just be a standard alignment though. If you've coilovers then he'll corner weight the setup for even distribution and then full alignment as well

      He's based out with East Coast Alloys the Dundalk side of Ardee

        Ah ok,its just the regular standard setup in my car so probably not much benefit.

        Good to know he's there anyway.

          That's cool, it's so hard get that done properly.
          I'd love to try a car with the corner weights baw-ways, and then corrected, to feel the difference.

            No major updates for this, only had it out a couple of times over the summer.

            But it's taxed all year round which is nice if I fancy a drive at any stage. €358 for a year's tax is good value!

            Just had it out at a local Cars and coffee few weeks back, they are such a tight car to drive.

            It's younger sibling is due in soon from Japan, not sure if there's another one in Ireland. Looking forward to getting some photos of them together.

                Nope that's a 2012 Spirit R, only made in 2012 so I'll be stuck with the 2k+ tax band, it'll be lucky to get 3 months in the summer to be honest


                But they are very similar to a UK R3 model mechanically alright

                    Unreal collection of JDM greats there Brian, fair play.

                    Love to see more on the R32 and NSX.
                    The R32 in that colour must be pretty rare as well.

                      Cheers Titan, Yep the R32 rarely sees the road to be honest at the minute.

                      It had a full service/recommission last year as it was sitting with about 6 years, it's getting a Haltech fitted and mapped for Irish fuel towards the end of the year then it's classic next year so it'll be out a bit more. Just not viable to tax them all to be honest.

                      Also it has Quantum coilovers fitted and one is weeping so I'll get them rebuilt at the same time in the UK. They are a UK company but whoever owned it in Japan before me had them imported from the UK and fitted in Japan.

                      Yep it's pretty rare, 1 of 67 Vspec I in that colour

                        That looks brilliant,always loved the V-Spec style wheels and to see it in a different colour to the more usual Gunmetal Grey and other darker colours.

                        Cant say I've ever heard of Quantum,they must be pretty decent if the Japanese owner used them instead of the many options available in its homeland.

                        Yeah it will be a lot more useable once your paying €56/year,without a doubt.

                          Unreal collection there Brian. I could pull up a chair and sit looking at each one individually for ages!
