Why i gave up on 240sx

It seems to me that honda owners started buying 240sx... They absolutely know nothing about automobiles and will open their mouth talking nonsense, im a aircraft mechanic working on an engineering degree, so i know a little about how things work.

Ive build a few 240sx and my last one i decided to part out with good 180sx, s15 parts... all i heard from buyers was lowballing and nonsense, later having some stuff stolen i find out a good friend has bought them because they were cheap even though he knew and told me nothing about it..

Sorry for ranting but this is why i switched to an M3 as my sports car of choice

Seems more a rant on human nature more than anything automotive.

By the way, Pineapple, don't expect better treatment from owners of used older BMWs. I hear from a good source that former Nissan owners are buying M3s, and we know how they are.

People seem to think that your rich if you own an m3 or a nice bmw.. many times ive seen girls look at me stepping out of a nice stock bmw than stepping out of a fully modified 240sx.. i like it

^ I have a corolla and a range rover, if you can pull tail you can pull tail. Thinking that that M3 is going to get you girls is a horrible thought pattern. You already ditched the 240, ditch the M3, get a prius and see if you got skillz

Its a 15 year old car.. plus the majority of women don't have a clue what an M3 is... I have to call BS here.

I get what the OP is saying: ricer crowd wants things cheap, and will steal to get it.

Exactly, sry for the late reply...
You cant seem to trust people these days
I think thiefs stay away from m3's because there's not a market for them like Hondas and usually they have alarm systems and vin plates on more parts of the car

Your M3 will not keep you immune from theft. Here is the latest ricer trend:
