If we have a thread like this mods please move or merge

company: Rally-E
product: Rally-E fog lights

Review: 2/5 stars

 I bought these things about.... like 7 months ago and right now there all the way in mount trash more. the reason is I thought they would be good fogs well, when I was doing my bumper (painting it) I saw they were cracked beyond repair. how did they crack? I have never been off road with them EVER. i know a couple of friends from skool with the  same fog lights and the same thing happened to them.

Very easy fogs to use and wire up but the quality is awful, just awful, very cheap fogs but awful. i guess in this case how much something cost really does matter. This is my review for this product and I hope it helps someone else in the fututre trying to choose fog lights... Stay away from this company.

THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.

company: Krylon
product: Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Spraypaint

Review: 4/5 stars

I have to say, this stuff is like, 2.99 a can, and brings itself to a nice smooth finish, MOST of the time.  For some reason, it reacts weird to the paint currently on the car, and causes some type of wrinkle effect...its like the clear coat has too much laquer thinner or something in it. Besides that, it turns out nicely, for 3 bucks a can. This brand does have the adjustable nozzle (like an automotive spray gun) and it does make shit a LOT easier.

While your at it, pick up one of the Spray gun handle type snap on thingies from Krylon.  It snaps onto the top of the spray can, has a trigger that actuates the button on the can, and makes everything so much easier to control.

Company: JVC
Product: KD-BT1 Stereo

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

This stereo is awesome, does MP3 CDs, has a USB Input for MP3 Files (Its on a cord built into the stereo so there is no ugly USB input on the front) and has built in Bluetooth for handsfree calling..

You can change the backlight to a bunch of differnet colors, I have mine set to Amber to match the gauges and HVAC controls.

I bought it for the Bluetooth and USB input.. Its a pain in the ass trying to find stuff on an iPod (This stereo can control/charge iPod with an extra $30 cable)

I have a flash drive connected to it with around 150 songs.. It reads the ID3 tag, so it'll display the name/artist of the song.

Setup of bluetooth is just like a headset.. When you get a call, it'll silence the music and ring, and you press any button to accept the call. The mic is awesome and sound quality is excellent. When you're done, hold any button and it'll end the call.. When you get a text message, you press a button and you can read it on-screen..

The faceplate is smaller than most, so its easy to carry around.

Only thing that annoys me, is JVC decided to use almost a 1/4 of the screen to show what mode your in (USB, iPod, Radio, BT, ect)..

Good buy, great for those states that say you can't drive and talk on a cell phone.

Only got a pic of the box cause I'm too lazy to walk to the car..

Product:T3/T4 turbo

Rating: 4/5

Review;
Great turbo, spools very nicely and has a "push you to the back of the seat" type feel. I've had it on the car for about 2 weeks now and it's holding up very nicely at 10psi. I would buy from them again, as long as it's balanced by a local turbo shop. very good product over all i gave it a 4/5 stars.

BARTCO tension rod bushings.

Absolutely perfect fit. Two different materials, one for stiffness and one that gives a little flex where needed. A great design. Should be put on every S12.

your painting surface was still dirty. either contaminated with grease, oil or silicone.
ive had rustoeum do the samething.


i think this thread is a great idea.....but i do think it will get filled up quickly. maybe some sub-catagories like paint, suspension, engine, and interior to help find a review easier???

Product: adjustable tension rods

Rating: 5/5

i bought these for my s14 about 2 years ago. i havent had a single problem since then and i have put about 10,000 miles on them of good daily driving. we have pretty nasty roads too, the semis tend to tear'em up pretty bad. they've taking nice hits from some nasty potholes. been off road once too, into a slight gulley. camoe out fine. rides slightly harsher since there is no rubber bushing anymore. great quality for the $125 i paid for them. would buy again for my s12 when i go s13 susp.

Company: Time-sert

Product: Thread Repair kit
http://www.hrpworld.com/googlebase.cfm?key...;action=product

Rating: 5/5

Review: I got this kit for my SE when I snapped my exhaust stud in the head, I figured I would do it right and get something like Heil-coil. Well after some searching I found Time-sert, I just got the kit in the mail it was 75$ but the kit comes with 4 drill bits (drilling, counter-bore, tap and insert tool). After using it I believe that the price is worth it for how well it worked and I will probably snap more exhaust studs lol. If you go to get them, go to amazon.com to get them.

Product: NISSAN 200 SX 5/86-1988 (V6) 2 Front Drilled Brake Rotors (Mine are the same product but are z31 rotors for front and back)

Media:

Rating: 5/5

These brakes are excellent. I wasn't expecting much as I only paid $150 for 4 drilled and slotted rotors, but they are exceptional. Made from quality material, no warpage, great response. I'm thoroughly impressed with these rotors. Slip right on the VG S12 with no problem (for the fronts) but you will not be able to get them on the back without significant modding. I will one day do the modding but for now its not in the budget. They also make these brakes for the 4cyl cars.
