Looking smart Quiggssesesess, let me introduce to you my mates 2000 V6-4Motion, think It'll be up your street, however it's no longer quite so low at the front as when he bought it (not long before these pictures) as it was uselessly low. Full R32 interior too and US bumpers, though as it's missing the normal side repeaters, what would be the side markers flash away as normal repeaters.

I always find that funny....in US/Canada we always want the color matched sidemarker(or filled, or just swap for a EU bumper), and in EU/UK, you guys switch to the US one....I swapped mine with a smoked one thats practically invisible on a black car when its not on....

To be fair, I was taught English in Taiwan first, and they teach US-style spelling.....

As you've said before, but that still ain't no excuse.

I am assuming Taiwan taught US English for political reasons? I am under the impression that British English was taught in most places.

Because the Taiwanese government was originally sanctioned by the US as the official "China" after the rise of Communist China.

Red China wasn't officially considered a country to the US until after Nixon visited them.

I think it more depends on the nationality of the teacher.

I can't really tell you why we were taught US English, but I think NSX is probably pretty close. Taiwanese government has always been pretty close to US government for geopolitical reason. And even after PRC became the recognized "one China" US still keeps Taiwan unofficially close...
