    Ganador mirrors?

    I am a HUGE fan of Ganador mirrors (if you don't know what these are please look them up you will not be disappointed) I think Pit Road M made them but they were expensive and I don't know where you could even get their stuff in the states. Anyone know of another way I could possibly get some or make some for my 1993 VR-4

    i think at the tender age of 16, you should be focused 100% on making your car run right. you've already said that you don't have enough money for a beater. priority #1 should be to make sure all of the requisite maintenance has been done. if you don't know for a FACT that it has been done: do it. you can drop several grand on just taking care of PM to bring the car up to spec. THAT should be your goal. mirrors, exhaust, bumpers, etc....all of that can wait.

    i know you're young and you probably won't listen to a guy who is almost twice as old as you...but trust me. i've been around this community for 10 years. i've seen this happen all the time. it's why there's so many part-out threads: people get in way over their heads because they don't realize what owning one of these cars means. more so than any other platform in existence (this side of 6-figures) owning the car doesn't mean you can afford the car. just because it sells for dirt-cheap doesn't mean it costs pennies to maintain. i guarantee the resale value on these cars would be significantly higher if the maintenance time/cost was trivial.

    Just ignore these fuckers... because you are young and you don't know much about the platform automatically makes you retarded (in their eyes)
