    So I grabbed this a month or so ago, with the help of Ben who is very helpful :)

    The direction I want to take this car is for track and hill climb, I felt this was a good platform to work off of and a bit different then your standard hatch we see over here.

    As for mods the car really doesn't have anything other then a turbo timer, front strut bar and rear brace bar. My fingers are crossed this one has the factory LSD that was hard to come by....only because the rear brace bar was usually only found in the models equipped with the LSD.

    Anyhow not to much to add until it arrives, which will be early in the new year as its already floating over here.

    Are you sure that's the right one? It's not white...;)

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with this car :)

    That's a good looking hatch! That's what I like about jdm, there's always some random model you've never noticed before.
    wheels and tint for me. looks slick!

    I had the previous gen Starlet Turbo.

    I know everyone drools over the Keis, but if you want a small light weight car that kicks you in the ass every time it hits the boost, the Starlet is really the way to go.

    Just recently got it, spent hours with the clay bar and polish...its pretty damn shiny now.

    Crappy cell phone pic!

    I havent drove it much as Im busy, but when I did drive it home it was pretty cool....the car is small, and responsive. At the docks it started right up with no jump, the oil was good, fluids all looked taken care of, and there was a new battery as well.

    The interior was super clean, but the paint needed a good cleaning, and there is clear coat issues with the roof and hood...which will likely be painted this year.

    Hopefully I will get around to playing with it more soon, new wheels/tires and coil overs will go on before inspection.

    UPDATE:

    Had a chance to play with the car today, put on the new wheels and rubber.

    While I was at it I checked and the car has the LSD!! which confirms my theory all along with the interior not matching the car...the previous owner sold the Recaro interior, dammit :(

    Anyways this model of the Glanza V was much harder to come across so Im stoked!!

    Some nice pics with a better camera....need some coilovers next!

    Gettin' there! Makes me want to try out one of these cars. Seems like it would be a pretty awesome all around car.

    Seems more like a WRX I think...
