Hi all,

Have just purchased this car within the last few months, I don't have much information on this car and would like to gain as much knowledge on it as I can.

First owner in New Zealand with around 84000kms. Was wondering what I could do as preventative maintenance. Car is manual

Welcome!

I am jealous on it being a manual, I have a white one as well just different wheels!

Nice, some more 130 love. A few have popped up around these parts in the last 6 or 12 months, mine included.

You definitely have some aftermarket suspension components in that, that thing is low! I'd have a look-see as a priority, you never know what you'll find!

And welcome!

Everyones trying to be as cool as me! :)

Its good seeing all these 130s snapped up, welcome. 

 

Car looks good, xenons/manual/sunroof - Good options. Pull that ebay M badge off the grill though 😛  https://www.mdecoder.com/decode/ps89205

It's well dumped... do you have access to a jack? If so lift the rear end, remove a wheel, take a few photos of the suspension and springs and post them here somewhere, I'm sure we'll be able to provide some insight. 👍
