    I bought it for my son as he insisted that his first car be "special"...well, it is, as it's not a common appearance on our roads (Bucharest, Romania)...however, being the non-turbo version it is probably the "black sheep of the family"...nevertheless, my son loves it, even though he only drove it so far inside the polygon - not yet 18 - and it does have some problems that i hope we'll sort out asap...

    Greetings from Bulgaria! Glad to see more people from Europe and especially neighbors owning and sharing their DSMs here :)!

    I see you've already got the wheels taken care of, those Enkeis are always a great pick. You can also put 3000GT calipers with them without a problem (let me know if you'd like my custom brackets, hehe). She looks very clean. I had a GS like that as a first car and it was great. Not too quick, but not too slow either. Definitely an eye catcher.

    Do you have any previous experience with these cars? I think there's another guy called Dan from Bucharest, he has a fully modded 1G turbo. Maybe you're the same guy :D? Maybe one day when your son gets more experienced with driving and gets tired of it, you can make it a project car and install a turbo.

    Anyway, good luck and congrats on your son for getting this awesome car. I loved mine, I'm sure he'll love his :dsm::hellyeah:

    Hello from Sweden! The non turbo in more comon here in Europe, but there is one upside to it.
    In Europe our N/T is still with the 4g63 engine, so its "easy" to convert into an GS-T if you should like to do so.
    Looks like you found a car in very nice condition!
