Traded my Evo for...

2003 Nissan 350Z Touring. 6sp, Black w/ Black heats leather seats and mirrors, 225/45 front 245/45 rear 18" wheels and tires, Bose 6 disc 7 speaker stereo, VDC.





Here my old Evo:

Mods: ACT Clutch/ Alpine deck/ Autometer boost gauge/ BFG KDW Tyres/ Blitz FATT/ Greddy Shift ****/ Hallman MBC/ Hawk Rear pads/ JDM MR BOV/ NGK spark plugs/
Perrin antenna/ Project Mu pads/ Rockford Fosgate amp & sub/ RS*R cat-back/ Seibon CF hood/ Tein H-Tech/ TurboXS intake/ Quaife Limited Slip Diff.
Got rid of it cause it kept breaking and having too many problems.

That 350z is nice as hell. Guy where I live has one with black 20s or 19s on it. Looks REALLY nice.

are you on HAI as well? If not, there is someone on there who just traded their Evo for a Nissan 350z as well.

Looks nice!

Awesome trade. I'd like to know what your future plans are too. You should totally get 20's.

Nice car. Now go buy yourself a DA polisher, because black is a b**** to keep looking good. You already have some swirls and holograms on that c-pillar. Great choice though!

Get the Rays from the 06 Z's (Grand Touring Package). I love the way they look. 19's in the back, 18's up front.

Stock Advans were replaced at 10k miles, I replace the hvac at 13k miles, the clutch at 20k miles, the front diff at 30k, the power sterring pump and starter at 33k miles. Think the transmisson was going out as well as the rear diff.
Check out www.EvolutionM.net for the most information. But be cautious because of... well refer to my quote in sig.

Are you refering to my problems on a civic? All those problems are from an Evolution 8.

now that will definitely help me cancel my decision in trading in my civic for an evo. I guess all of those horror stories about the maintenance of the evo are true.

i guess its just a risk you gotta take. If i get an Evo and it has alot of problems, i just gotta end up selling it.

What im scared about is that i will put a lot of money into modifying it and than oem parts like starters and transmissions will fail or even the hvac.

Trust me I dumped some top dough into it. The front diff was $1500 ($1900 installed) alone, the clutch was $500 (total $1100 instaled) and, the hood was $500.
