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

Go for the r33 vspec, better looking , more road presence, better brakes, more room, nicer interior, better four wheel drive system (specially the vspec) and it was the first production car the get under 8 minutes at the Nurburgring

Here's my two cents, hope it counts for something.

Having owned an R32, I can attest it's lighter, and slightly more agile then the R33. It's a good car, but the R33 feels more planted to the road, likely because of the added weight. Having driven an R33 a few times, I can also attest that it has that increased redline, which I like. The car is much more stable, but the R32 GT-R, again, is quicker. So I have to stand at styling, and that's where the R33 comes ahead... by an inch.

Skyline lovers love the boxiness of the car, likely because it displays such a presence. The car is a technological wonder, at least for it's day (2002).

Still the R33, curves out all the dull spots from the R32, and makes them more noticeable, such as the headlights, the tailights, and the bumpers and sidesills.

Overall it all comes down to which one you're more comfortable in. The R33 works for me, but the R32 could work for you... it's all on the one that truly sticks out in your head as a...


Skyline.

What a beautiful word...

You can probably buy a copy cheap enough from Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more - Most oldies are around $7.00 US + P&P.

I love them both but i think if you are using it as an everyday car the r33 is a better choice

If its a weekend toy your after then go play in both and see which you like
