Hi all... names Maria (yes I'm female)

I used to have a 96 Honda Civic, sold it back in October..

now i've been checking out this 1996 200SX Se-R..

http://autos.keepitlocal.com/detail.asp?CarID=35746

Thats the car.. i went and looked at it today... it really interests me...

I did a quick "free" carfax on it and it came back with 12 records... does anyone got a carfax account.. also... mind explaing to me the potentional and etc of this particular car..

when i comes to the 6th gen hondas.. i got a clue.. this... i'll admit.. i'm clueless..

(I'm really interested in Japanese parts and etc and yes I know.. a 240SX would be easier to do so with)

I've already found that I could get the GC coils and AGX struts again.. which I think I definately would do and if I read it right.. this car is also a 4 by 100 so I could go with some Rotas or Spoons (depending on money)

This is my ex-car if you care.. remember opinions really mean nothing since I haven't had it in 9 months..

except for the miles it's pulling and the fact I just ordered the ACT clutch for 1.6 and it's not in NC, I'd grab it up real quick, just have to figure out how to get what I paid for this SE, sigh.....

Buy it.

The SE-R is a great car with a great motor, the SR20DE. 140HP, 138ft-lbs of torque (I think...). The SR20DE is a 2.0l motor, with gobs of aftermarket support. It's in the same family as the SR20DE-T from Japan that has from 205-215 HP (or so) on a T28 turbo running something like 8lbs of boost. FMAX makes a turbo kit utilizing a T3/T04 turbo and 400+ HP has been done many times. Also, there is the DE-T swap, VE swap, and the ungodly (but ultra-rare) SR20VE-T with 280 HP, Neo-VVL technology (Nissan's VTEC) and is a swap that has never been done as far as I know. Any bolt-on you could ever want is available, although parts are usually more expensive than for a Civic.

There are lots of options for body-type-stuff, but JDM is an issue. The B14 chassis is a N. America-only car, so JDM basically doesn't exist. There is the Sunny in Japan, which is built on the same platform, but doesn't share a whole lot of body work, so if you're bent on JDM, you might want to look for a 240.

The lug pattern is 4x100, but I wouldn't put Spoons on it if I were you - that'd be kinda goofy. Gunmetal 16" Rota Subzeros though... drool... Also, SE-R wheels are in high demand with us B13 guys, so you could probably recover some of the cost of the new wheels be selling your stockies.

So, welcome to the site, we all hope to see another female face cruising around in a nice 200SX.

By the way, nice Civic. I love EK hatchies!

definately a nice car. (has a ton more options than mine). you definately want to get the 2.0L, it has a ton of potential and aftermarket support. also like he said above, this car is also easy to turbo if you go with a nice kit from hotshot or something. you will be pushing 235+hp to the wheels. other than that, b14 SE-Rs aren't easy to come by, If I ever got another chance, I would much rather be in the SR20 family than the GA16 family.

glad you consitered a nissan..:D
welcome to the boards ;)

That price seems a little high (to me)

I live in atlanta, and I had the ability to shop around.


I got my 98 200sx se (not r) for $5000.

58k miles, every single option you could get. Clean carfax.

Needed a new clutch, high side a/c hose, and that's it. I did the work myself and it costed me $200 including getting the a/c filled.


I had looked at an 97 se-r that had 75k with no probs but it was about $6.5k and that was a little high to me for that milage.



Anywho, look around, but when you find a good deal then grab. Apparently where you live this is a good deal

welcome, you have a b14...

first off, welcome to the site, and se-r is a very good choice, but one thing though is that it doesn't have vtc, also found on the legendary 300zx( all heil the Z!!!!), anyway, it seems to be a cool car, very good potential, very wide and extensive parts support, somewhat like your previous car, have fun with it , that's the main idea, and also (read lower section)........later......and welcome......
