This car is heavily modified, everything on the car has been changed/replaced/upgraded at some point. Heavily modified cars are not normally as reliable as a stock car. In addition, where ever you bring this car or other modified cars you are increasing your risks of theft and unwanted attention. The car still currently has racing slicks for tires so is unsafe to drive on wet roads. There are lots of Pros and Cons about the car, it all depends on your lifestyle whether or not the stress of having the car outweighs the fun or the other way around. For me, I have car ADD and was just finished with it, wanted money and to move on even tho it handled as if it were on rails and still IMO one of the the best looking Subarus.

I sold it to him, then sold him a Silvia S15 soon after which he has absolutely loved and would like to get a skyline GTR. The engine blew under his ownership, then has since then had it rebuilt and upgraded beyond what it was.

So if you don't mind, how are you importing these "illegal" cars? Haha through Canada?

Edit; I only ask because I'd be interested In getting an r34 in a few years.

I understand the dynamics of owing a heavily modified car but I still think its convoluted and also none of my gd business. Loved the black STI, never been a big fan of Skylines, do whacha like.

Not as hard as you think to get a skyline, they are out there. My brother in law had one that he sold a few months back.

Good luck trying to bring it over the Border

When I sell them, they have a %100 transferable US title to any state with the 11 digit japanese Vin. All of the horror stories I've heard are from people either Vin swapping, not owning a title, or titling the car with a bunch of additional fake numbers to reach the 17 digits that US Vins have. Keep in mind that %99 of the BS you hear actually comes from idiots sitting behind there computers with Zero knowledge or they heard/read an article and think they know everything and just want to be heard and gain attention when talking about a Skyline.

For some who do not believe or think it's quetionable, I %99 of the time I can prove what I say. Please see the S15 title shown below for the S15 pictured above a few posts:



OP, are you looking to purchase it? I know you said you gave a few offers but are you really looking to purchase it?

Two completely different cars, it's like comparing a BRZ with a STI.

Silvia S15 Spec-S

-Open diff

I. Importing a Nissan Skyline.


The Nissan Skyline was not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS. Such a vehicle that is less than 25 years old can only be lawfully imported into the U.S. if (1) it is determined eligible for importation by NHTSA and (2) it is imported by an RI or by a person who has a contract with an RI to bring the vehicle into compliance with all applicable FMVSS within 120 days of entry.

Import eligibility decisions are made on a make, model, and model year basis. NHTSA has determined that the R33 Model Nissan GTS and GTR ("Skyline") passenger cars manufactured between January 1, 1996 and June 30, 1998 are eligible for importation and has assigned vehicle eligibility number VCP-32 to those vehicles. (The import eligibility number is to be entered on the HS-7 Declaration form that is to be given to Customs at the time of entry, and alerts Customs that the vehicle may be lawfully imported by an RI or by a person who has a contract with an RI, even though the vehicle is not certified by its manufacturer as complying with all applicable FMVSS.)

To learn the modifications the petitioner started were needed to conform Nissan Skyline vehicles to the FMVSS, you should go to the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) website at http://www.regulations.gov/ and access docket number �NHTSA-2005-22654� by following the online instructions for accessing the dockets available at that web site. You should note that the petition sought import eligibility for 1990-1999 Nissan GTS and GTR "Skyline" passenger cars. After granting the petition, the agency learned that the modifications identified in the petition were not sufficient to conform certain model and model year vehicles that were covered by the petition. The agency therefore partially rescinded its grant of eligibility, leaving only R33 model Nissan GTS and GTR passenger cars manufactured between January 1, 1996 and June 30, 1998 eligible for importation.

A list of RIs can be found on our website at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import. You should consult the importers on that list to see whether any are willing to conform the vehicle that you seek to import to all applicable safety and bumper standards, and if so, what they would charge for that work.

If you decide to import the vehicle, one potential complicating factor is that the RI who petitioned NHTSA to determine the Nissan Skyline eligible for importation requested, and was granted, confidentiality with respect to the modifications needed to conform to the vehicle to certain of the standards. As a consequence, that importer (J.K. Technologies, LLC of Baltimore, Maryland) has claimed a proprietary interest in the modifications covered by the confidentiality grant. This does not preclude other RIs from attempting to modify the vehicle. However, should those importers not gain access to the modifications covered by the grant confidentiality, they will have to demonstrate to the agency, at the time they submit a conformity certification package for a Skyline, that they have made equivalent modifications that permit the vehicle to comply with the standards covered by the confidentiality grant.

Please note that we determined the vehicle eligible for importation based on its capability of being modified to comply with all applicable standards. We did not approve J.K. Technologies, LLC as the "exclusive" importer of the vehicle. As previously indicated, any other RI is free to import the vehicle, but will have to demonstrate in the conformity package submitted to the agency to obtain release of the conformance bond furnished at the time of importation that the vehicle has been brought into conformity with all applicable standards, including those covered by the grant of confidentiality to J.K. Technologies, LLC.

You should note that if you were to import the vehicle, the necessary modifications would have to be made by an RI, and that importer would have to certify to us that the vehicle conforms to all applicable FMVSS in effect on its date of manufacture before the vehicle could be released to be licensed or registered for on-road use. One of the reasons that an RI is required to import and modify a vehicle that was not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS is because the RI stands in the stead of the vehicle�s original manufacturer to provide the vehicle�s owner with notification and remedy in the event that the vehicle is determined to contain a safety-related defect or a noncompliance with an applicable safety standard. Because the original manufacturer would not be responsible for the vehicle being in the U.S., it would have no legal obligation to perform this import safety responsibility.

Questions regarding modifications to conform the vehicle to applicable emissions standards should be directed to the EPA.

II. Importing a Mercedes Smart Car.

A vehicle that was not originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS cannot be lawfully imported into the U.S. unless it is first determined by NHTSA to be eligible for importation. The agency makes these decisions on the basis of petitions from. These are business entities that are specifically approved by NHTSA to import nonconforming vehicles and to perform the necessary modifications on those vehicles so that they conform to all applicable FMVSS. The petitions must specify that the vehicle is substantially similar to a U.S.-certified vehicle, or that the vehicle has safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, the FMVSS based on destructive test information or other evidence the agency deems adequate.

Import eligibility decisions are made on a make, model, and model year basis. In early 2004, we granted import eligibility to the 2003-2004 glass top and convertible versions of the Passion model Smart Car, and to the 2002-2004 Passion, Pulse, and Pure model Smart Cars. More recently, the agency granted import eligibility to the 2005 and 2006 Smart Car Coupe and Cabriolet (including Passion, Pulse, and Pure trim levels), and to the 2007 version of those vehicles manufactured before September 1, 2006. As a result of these decisions, any of the model and model year vehicles identified above can be imported by an RI or by a person who has a contract with an RI to bring the vehicle into conformity with all applicable FMVSS. A list of RIs that are currently in active status can be found on our website at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import. You might wish to contact one or more of the RIs on that list to learn the cost of modifying one of these vehicles so that it conforms to all applicable FMVSS.

We have made a blanket import eligibility decision that covers all Canadian-certified passenger cars manufactured on or after September 1, 2002, that, as originally manufactured, are equipped with an automatic restraint system that complies with our occupant crash protection standard and that also were originally manufactured to comply with other specified standards. Because we have been advised by the Smart Car�s manufacturer that Canadian-certified Smart Cars manufactured before October 30, 2007 do not meet one or more of the specified standards, those vehicles can only be lawfully imported if they have been determined eligible for importation on a separate make, model, and model year basis. The manufacturer informed us that Canadian-certified Smart Cars manufactured on or after October 30, 2007 are originally manufactured to meet all the specified standards. Canadian-certified Smart Cars manufactured on or after that date can therefore be imported under the blanket import eligibility decision that covers all Canadian-certified passenger cars.

Questions regarding modifications to conform the vehicle to applicable emissions standards should be directed to the EPA.
