    Did 200sx's ever come to North America with similar center lighting peices as this 180sx?

    [​IMG]

    If so, which model was it? B13? :dunno: Are those lighting peices pretty common, or did they come on all 200sx models?

    Did 180sx's ever come to N. America? :dunno:


    Thanks

    It's an S13, not B13. And the lights on ther 240SX were a simliar shape, just different light arrangements.

    The 180SX was not sold in the US.

    Our 240SX hatch appears near identical to the 180SX. The center light piece says '240SX' rather than '180SX.'

    To clear things up: In N. America, the 200SXs dating after the S12 were the fwd B-series cars. The S-chassis was continued in the form of the 240SX.

    In Europe, the 200SX was basically a Japanese Silvia(rwd).

    I don't care at all about that 180sx i posted... I was just using the rear center light price as an example...

    So did N. America ever get the B13 (correct?) 200sx with a center light peice like the one shown above? :dunno:

    If the 200sx in europe was a jap. silvia, then what is a euro 200sx (jap silvia) here in n. america?

    :o

    No.

    The 240SX is the closest thing we got.

    this car is a japanese market 180SX, however here in america it is called a 240SX. they are exactly the same except the JDM version has either the CA or SR engine. The USA version 240SX comes with the KA motor. All of the tail lights are interchangeable. They are all S13

    The 200SX was never a rebadged Sunny. The first 200SX was based on the S110 chassis. The second was based on the S12. The third was based on the Nissan Lucino.
