DRIFT CAR: Garage Life BN Sports S15

Posted by Damien O'Connor on 20th February 2011

For me personally, the S15 body is the nicest of the S-Body line to be produced. This is being challenged as I develop a maturing taste for a sweetly modified S13, but I think that’s a topic for another day. For now we’ll focus on this BN Sports S15, which we recently captured some images of at a redundant sawmill. The now eerie grounds of once a busy workplace slept quietly as the S15 crept across the pot holed entrance, with driver Mark Kane nervously protecting his immaculate BN Sports kit. Our Irish followers will recognise this car from attending Prodrift events, as the car was featured in a number of marketing campaigns and proves very popular with the paying fans on drift days.

This really is the extent of what driving this car has seen since being imported by Madcap Imports in 2006. It has covered a mere 12,000kms since then and enjoys the “Garage Life” more often than none.

A nice rear shot in front of a previous goods entrance.

10j rims on the front help fill out the vented front wings beautifully.

The interior is as fresh as the day it left the factory; the additions make for a real drift car feel while maintaining functionality for those Sunday spins.

Vibrant Bride Zeta seats really transfom the interior.

Defi Gauges sit now where the Air-Vents once did.

You can really get a picture of the huge dish on the rear of the 12j rims in this shot.

Avoiding all wood-related jokes here. The GT wing is prominent in the background and adds a really aggressive stance to the rear end.

The detail on the rims really is on another level and Mark has just got them refurbished to keep them fresh.

As seen above here the engine bay is crammed with aftermarket goodies to up the power.

A close in shot of the freshly powder coated SR20DET rocker cover.

A quick side shot as Mark calculates his best exit route to keep his kit in tact.

This front on shot really gives you an idea of the extra width the BN Sports kit adds to the S15.

    Super awesome car! not a huge fan of the taillights though. Here in arizona the only people that have those are want to be thug lowriders.

  • Joe

    I love this – great feature!

  • ^^ 99% o any graphics would be cool on this car because the car makes them cool.

    Pitty this car doesnt get driven. It was just bought in from japan and cherished! (^^,)

  • That Kid Kyle

    @Slappy, you’re so right. But I believe the reason people accept it so much is that graphics like this one are common on competition drift cars, at least in Japan. In any case I don’t care for it.

  • Now we all know that if someone put those ugly graphics on a Dodge Neon, the world would hate on it.
