that would be an oil cooler.
Very 'jdm' scene.

No no, on the right hand corner of the bumper. It looks like an arial or something. In the first photo I thought it was something in the background but it keeps showing up in the other photos too.

In the specifications it says "Front mounted oil cooler with steel braided hoses"  why would you not put it behind the spoiler.

Coz, that won't look fuullyyyy sssiiiiiiiccccckkkkk for all the fan boys, or the owner couldn't be armed mounting It properly and just zip tied it to the front bar until he gets around to mounting it properly.

It's jap old school racer style, seen on alot of hako's. I like it.



To each to their own I guess  but I'm not a fan of the rear flares. Bolt-ons look so much better imo

It's all for the look I think, not really my scene but some like it. I think that aerial thingy is similar to what trucks have on the front corners, they allow you to see how close your getting to walls/objects, I guess the seat must be low or he's a short arse  ;D

Wouldn't it be prone to damage out there, stones and other debris?

I thought there was few people on here who liked the tyre stretch scene and it would appeal to guys who like this style. Still looks ok though, kinda admire the craziness of it all

I don't like it. Black airdam and flares make such a difference, makes it pop.

God I love that Skyline.

That Z is a bit lost in translation if it's supposed to have been inspired by the KPGC10. It would look nice if the bumper was removed and the oil cooler mounted centrally in front of the grill. Anyhow, plenty of room inside a Z to fit an oil cooler, unlike those S20 Skylines.

Galderdi,

The little aerial like object is quite literally a metal/plastic rod with a little led light on the end.
The 4WD I often drive in Fukuoka (Japan) has one as well.....I think they are used to assist in knowing where the end of the car is (for low speed/narrow street shuffling). It will be hinged/jointed at the bottom so that it has a bit of play (unlike an aerial).

You can see it more clearly if you zoom in on the photo.

At least that is the only explanation I  could ever come up with, and I drove with one for months (never really used  - or bothered to ask what it was for).

I'm with Saxon on this one.
It needs some definition. Black flares would really break it up and highlight the "Stance"
Also, that coolers gay as a hairdressers car  ;D

I think it helps keep the front air damn from flexing at speed?

Those are down to the splitter, which I like.
I think Greg is talking about the aerial looking thing pointed up, that is a parking aid isn't it?
