My mate owned that car from new and built it up to what's there. Since had a few new owners though.

My mates gone all American and bought some 10 litre Barracuda or something...... !! Go figure.

have you ever driven a 33 ?

not that fast... as std none of them are that fast. however out of the box the 33 has a higher top speed due to the more aerodynamic design.

with mild mods to either they are both fast. don't be lulled in by size when you drive the 33 it feels half the size it is. in fact the only thing I didn't like about the 33 was parking it as it takes up a whole parking space.

still the 32 isn't hugely different in size.

32 is more driver oriented but the 33 is a great motorway car and still goes very well on a circuit.

A clean R32 in grey or white in mint condition is a fine machine to behold. Indeed, I think that the few pure R32 GT-R's will retain their value way better than any R33 except the 400R (ooo, there's a surprise).

But for me, the R33 GT-R is the only one. Even if I had the money for an R34, I'd just carry on modding my R33.

BUT. The R33 GT-R as stock is a lardy beast. If you do go for an R33, get one with at least 400bhp at the fly with a full maintenance history and oil changes every 3000 miles.

I always go through a love/hate relationship with the R33's....some days I love em, others I dont. I initally wanted an R33 but ended up buying an R32, wasnt the money.

They do look nice with a like a JUN, Trust or Do-Luck kit on them and deep dish alloys ! Think its the deeper bumpers and the sideshirts sticking out a bit more that makes them look really nice.

I think if you put the R32 next to an R34 you can see a logical progression in the shape, the R33 doesnt, it doesnt really fit with the other two but it still looks good.

Never even been in an R33....driven both R32 & R34 so cant comment on the ride of them.

I think they're all starting to look dated now, uber cars though

the r32 is not only more nimble, but in my opinion is an excellent motorway cruiser - just as good as an r33. to compare off topic - id much rather be in an r32 than an rx7[too crampt] or a supra [feels too big and not enough feedback from the steering wheel] back on topic - and i cant see any advantage a r33 has over a 32. it might be a few years newer - but the 32 has the most agressive shape.

in my view there is no better car than an R32GTR fitted with the Bee*R R324 kit - i think it looks better than the r34.

I think Nigel F said a good comment to me recently :

The R32 and R34's are smaller inside then an R33 ! and when your 20ft tall like him then the R33 feels alot more comfy !

I'm only 5'10" so my R32 fits me fine

I recon all Skylines make good motorway animals

As long as it has the Skyline writen on the back, with the GT-R sign it suits me! Same respect!

I tried both standard 33gtr and standard 32gtr and i must be honest and say that the 32gtr was noticablly quicker , now ive owned the 32 for a while now , when i see 33's on the road they look effin huge and dare i say cumbersome lol but those "gtr" letters on the back make all models worth while !

In my opinion the R33 looks great, but it truly is the R32's fat sister.

The R32 just looks mean, its timeless, the 33 looked great when it came out then started looking very dated to me.

I mainly don't like the rear end of the R33, also the fact that the 33 is basically the same engine and heavier.

I'm set to buy an R32 GT-R this year, I can't freakin' wait, replace my HR31 Coupe, now thats a rare car where I live, Western Australia, theres probably only about 100 or so in the country, I love my 31 :P

what's with the R33's fat ass, yet it has less than half the boot space as the R32??? Spent some time this weekend with a mate's R33, in which he's fitting a T88. No trunk space!!!

I must say however, that the R33 wing is by far the best of the three (R32, R33, R34). I will fit a D.speed Python wing, which is basically an R33 wing for the R32, as soon as I can manage it.

BNR32 forever, no matter how much it costs me :P
