  1. My S15 Autech

    Hi all, I thought it be fitting that my first post is a showcase on my S15 Autech. After deciding on what car I was after the next step was to look for it, unfortunately there was no s15's that met my criteria in Western Australia. So I looked else where, booked a ticket to Sydney and off I went. I inspected the car, bought it and then got it transported to Perth. Did a bit of touristy stuff in Sydney and the following day I was on my way back to Perth. Now it was time to wait for my car to arrive. A couple of weeks later the day had arrived, it was time to pick up the s15. Got my mate to take me to the logistics warehouse and on the drive back, she could see me smiling the entire drive back to my house. After a couple of months daily driving the car, the time had come to start getting the car ready to pass the pits so I could register it in Wa. For those unaware, because I've owned the car for less than a year, it need to pass inspection so it could be registered in Wa, that's the rules here. After my first go getting the car though pits, a few things needed to be changed. First off, the car needed to be raised to legal height, the wheels were to wide and was rubbing against the coilovers, inner-tie rod bushings needed replacing, rear aftermarket tail-lights needed proof that they compile with ADR, this was passed with a simple letter from the manufacture stating that it complies with the ADR and finally I need permits for my coilovers and stainless steal exhaust headers, which are factory however the inspector thought it would be wise to get it written down anyway. Second time past the pits and it passed. Great success! Next began the process of making the car how I want it. New radio, wheels, lights, Cube short shifter. It's my daily so I've kept it clean and enjoyable to drive. Not going for crazy power gains, can't really do much with the Autech engine anyway. Got a custom shift knob made from Billetworkz in America, can definitely recommend them if you're looking to improve your interior. That's about it for my s15. Thanks for reading! James,
