Nice! My wife has a 5dr 98 214Si in nightfire red. I love driving it, cos it is so revvy - but could do with the Leda touch if I was using it everyday!

'nothing special'? Looks very nice, especially with the non standard wheels, lowered, induction kit, twin pipe exhaust and.............

^ hehe :)

its "tame" to some you see, but i grew out of the whole big styling mods thing a while ago - not that i dont like them, or think they look bad when done properly - just dont seem to warm to that kinda thing like i used to..

its a good car, and the mods just make it a bit different - the wheels and lowering it transformed the handling - and give it a better road presence imo :)

The nightfire 214 looks very smart with a subtle touch of mods!
Takes me back to 1995 when I bought one of the very last of the old model 214i models in nightfire red.That car had electric "nothing" - no extra"s. All I did to that was put a set of fairly cheap alloys & change the rear number plate surround to the colourcoded one from the GSi model.
I had as much interest/desire & enjoyment from that car then as I do the top of the range ZTV8 & ZT-T & Fully loaded Express cars that I have today!Probably because of my passion for the brand.

Hello, new fella here, just joined last week. :uj1:

that nightfire colour still looks so smart and it hasn't aged, looks good with stance too, good effort.

my missus runs a 216si bubble 4dr in the dark blue met, 25 alloys. I find it asthmatic though - it's not what I would call revvy - so is it worth her putting that filter on - without the expense of a full exh system swap and remap?

I also smoke a run-out model 1995 418 GS TD with leather and 'leccy options, and I reckon it's miles better built than her bubble? was I lucky or was she unlucky I wonder

Welcome to Brit-cars.com crevice! :drink2:

Its amazing the number of differences there are between the 8v and 16v engine bays - the pics on this thread show that quite well :)

Welcome, and yup, the 8V looks lost in there compared to the 16V. Mind you, the 8V looks ideal for a low power engine swap into something light like a Midget, along with some Webers for a period look!

I suppose I should get my act together with my wife's 214! Anyone know how well paint will take to the black plastic trim after yrs of silicon detailing!:(

easier to fix the head gasket in the 8valve as there is more room :lol:
