Hello Kappa Performance!!!
« on: August 08, 2014, 06:09:35 PM »
It's been about a year now since my last post and was wondering how many of my old forum friends were still around.  :yay: I hope everyone is doing fine and still enjoying their Kappa's!  :drive: It's been a year now since me and the wife traded in our Sol and Sky and I for one sure do miss it! I picked up a silver 2011 2SS/RS in April, mostly because the deal was so sweet, (from a Nissan dealership no less) with all the bells and whistles (except the stripes - go figure).  :idk: Haven't decided if it is as fun to drive as the Brazen or not. I'll post a pick if anyone is interested. No longer in Vegas either. We are now in Virginia! Almost as hot but not nearly as dry...  :rofl: Humidity sucks!

Just wanted to stop in and say hi!

I drove a 2SS RS and I thought it was a bit harsh on the ride.  Do you have headsup display?

Kelu must be getting old! I never could have beat him to posting pics a year ago...

Critterman - we are in the Norfolk area.

DeepBlueGXP - yes it has the HUD. First car I've had with one and it's pretty cool. Took me awhile to stop looking down at the speedo though. I haven't noticed the ride being particularly harsh. Comparable to the GXP more or less. I lowered it (first mod) and I think it rides a little better now if anything. Handles better for sure.

Here are some pics. It is a lot dirtier than it looks but that is the magic of silver!

Looks great, love the way silver makes it look so clean.  That's how Critterman always got away with having a clean car

One of the benefits of a Silver car :)  Looks good Brazen.  Langley is supposed to be a nice base.

I was away from home.... and some of the old members might get special treatment :D

Car is gorgeous, Camaro is the favorite car of my wife, I would get one if the european taxes won't prohibit it around here.

For the fun here are some quotes for taxes:
- Romania - 1st registration tax $11 000 - annual tax $2700  :gaah:  :gaah:  :gaah:
Dragula  ;) Opel GT  from Romania
Arabas: take fotos, videos and keep all girls locked inside the house. Kelu's charm is irresistible !!!!
