Does anybody understand how a lot does a mean s15 Silvia price particularly a rhd one? I’ve not too long ago begin stepping into and liking Silvia’s much more now and sadly I dwell within the states so they’re unlawful right here however I’m nonetheless curious on how a lot they price as a result of I actually need one.

In Canada S15’s are listed 30-50k…. Better start saving!
The earliest S15s will become legal in the US in 2024, so the prices are already rising.
A rusty, repaired Spec-R will probably cost you £20k/$23k to begin with, rising to well over $30k for a cleaner example. If it’s got OEM aero (3 leg spoiler, skirts, front bumper) then slap another $5k on it minimum.
Check goo-net-exchange.com, that will show you the cars available at dealers (better quality photos than auction houses).
some people still import a S15, just a shell and wait for it to be legal, or move to florida where police don’t give a fuck xD
“What’s the retail on one of those?” “More than you can afford pal. Old Nissan”
Someone needs to make a stickied thread or post talking about prices for the most popular JDM cars because we get this question so much
here in Australia to much sadly
I paid 17k for my S15 in 2018, it’s now insured for 40k 😂 prices are $35k-$50k for S15’s atm in Aus. I was lucky to get mine when I did 😅
When I did my searching for an s chassis fairly recently I did look into the s15 they were priced anywhere from 15- 40k us. Lots hovered around that 27k mark. However you will also need to store it until it turns 25. Your picture is from garage defend he’s an exporter and specializes in selling jdm cars to Americans. From my research he picks good clean desirable cars to resale to foreigners but he’s pricey. He will also buy a car on your behalf or help you find what you are looking for. This car is currently on his site for 31,800 it’s a 2001 spec R which goes for more than a spec s but it’s gonna be 2026 until it can get on the boat to the USA if that’s where you are.
Bro wym a rhd one theyre jdm💀
The S15 prices went up a few years ago even in Japan.
When legal in the US you van expect a big bump again.
Last time I checked Yahoo Japan for a spec S to reshell my POS there was nothing decent under 10k.
The spec R were at 20k+
There’s one in the UK for sale and it’s a Spec R with 90,000 miles on the clock for £30k ($35k)
Tbh just buy a rolling body they’re usually cheaper after you’ve dropped the engine in and everything you can find a decent rolling body spec s for 15k nzd and a sr20det and loom for around 5k nzd plus some extra costs it come to around 25k nzd for pretty much a spec r which sells for a average of 50k nzd
All I can suggest is that you find a reputable place (such as Garage Defend that you have shown in your pic) in Japan that can source you one while it’s still “cheap”, and then have them store it until it’s legal, because once these become 25 years old, the prices are going to go stupid.
Last couple years the s15’s have become my top JDM car. I just love them
In Australia they’re plentiful and were sold as new even with an Australian spec along side thr JDM from $15-60k
Better question is, how much would you pay for one ?
I’m curious to know how much Americans dig the s15
30-50k easily. Paid 13k for my 180 from japanese classics years ago. And prices are only going up
Over here it’s over 15K just in tax to import it from another country, let alone the price of the car itself 🥲
I lived in Japan for a couple of years. Zero clue on the actual performance. Best looking car they ever produced.
(Of course a couple Honda’s would argue. But, this still looks better than an NSX.)
I’m in Oz, but S15 prices are suddenly fucking insane. $80k without a sweat, IF you can find one.
youd be better off getting an s14 and just swapping the metal from a front clip. the s15 is legendary, along with its oem motor, the sr20det. even if you could get your hands on an s15, the sr20 is so well known and no longer factory supported, its going to be an uphill fight for parts. nissan is only going to keep about 10 years of parts, and this is a popular drift missile we are talking about here. if you got cash to splash, go bonkers. but if youve gotta be more strategic with your funds, id just go with a 350z and call it a day. i know sticklers will point out the weight difference and the power band differences between a VQ and a SR, but people who work for a living will tell you that youre import tuning days will go a lot further with a car with easy to source parts and a popular platform. rwd, torquey v6, plentiful 6mt models, and you can even add “fairlady z” decals for those jdm feels.
There is one in my town going for [44k it’s imported & it’s a nice spec](https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1053728315341348/)
Man I wish I could get a silvia. I gotta roll around in a blue jdm sw20 instead, those are sacrifices made on a fixed income for this hobby.
In austria i found a realy clean low kilometers spec r for 40k
I guess you can buy one in 2024
In Australia the fuckers are worth $60K!! And this is used all with at least 100,000km on the clock
My sister paid $14k 4 years back and is now getting offers of $60k to 70k. I know they’re only offers but it’s a huge leap regardless.
in america cant get one under 40k
Spec S 22k, spec R 30k
$20-$40 for a really nice one. All S15’s are RHD btw
Around 35k, as we get closer to that import year I expect them to go up, especially when demand starts getting high
In Canada their 25k for a spec s and 40k for a spec r last time I checked
Bout tree fiddy
Why is it illegal in the states
I have a friend in Japan that shops auctions, recently type S auto went for 17k, I’m trying to work with him on importing cars. His son has a car business over there.
Sadly, too much for what I think it’s worth.
all s15’s are RHD. honestly the s15 is sick but it’s not worth what they want. i would just get a s13 or 14. those are still crazy money but not nearly as much as a 15. the best part about a jdm s chassis is you get the sr20 engine vs a non turbo 2.4 4 cylinder
Are not illegal, and they sale em all over the internets !!!
I’m not really that deep in the market and stuff but based on what I’ve seen a good deal for an average s15 is from 20k- 35k dollars
Guy I met bought one from a dealer in kansas for 19k with like 85km
Can you make these cars left hand drive?
