BTW are the wheels premium or black edition
Those wheels really suit the colour, theres another thread about a DMG black Ed and the darker wheels dont suit the car as much imo

Another shot of mine. Chris Rutter from Evo took some stunning pics from this location. Look out for them in Evo issue 131.



It was a truly nostalgic experience for me, returning to Middlehursts after so many years.
It was great to see Andy again and to meet Chris Batho.
Gary who did my handover is possibly the most knowledgeable R35 GT-R person in the western hemisphere!

Thanks to the whole team for making delivery such an occasion.
but if look at the 2 cars above they are a different colour - the one in the showroom is definitely titanium - you should have gone to Specsavers

Couple of interior pics...









I asked Gary not to have the car washed or prepped so it's still got it's adhesive lines from the shipping wrap and after a couple hundred miles it's looking a bit dull...I'll take a few snaps before I wash and wax it.

Red trim looks much brighter in the pics, probably the crappy camera and my useless skills with it. More subdued than it appears.

i think MM08GTR is Chris Batho's which is a JDM import, it was on top gear last year in the studio

Yup, it's got the HKS 570hp kit on it and a Connolly leather interior, although that is also in red so looks a bit overwhelming in a red car!

Sounds great though.

Chris will be getting the demo car which comes next week or the week after. The Titanium car will remain in the showroom as the display car.

I can not believe that grown men who are purchasing such an awesome car are behaving like a bunch of fishwives.
Just for the record, I was sat in the show room when David Yu was taking delivery of his GTR and the photographers were taking the pictures. At that time the GTR in the background was a titanium black edition.
I have to say that in certain light the two cars looked very similar in colour as I even commented on this to Chris Batho when he took us outside to take delivery of our titanium black edition..
It is Quite Possible that after we left they swapped cars around for David but they were incredibly busy and it would have taken some maneuvering.

whatever you do don't read any other threads, specifically involving the following subjects; VDC, warranty, post track inspections, service costs

Steady on, I only commented because I had a similiar experience to you and was told by Chris and Jo it was Titanium. Just thought upcoming DMG and Titanium owners would like to know what they are looking at. Instead I get some rolleyes...go figure.

I heard that if you can't tell the difference between Titanium and DMG then your warranty is voided!

Think you mean Pussy's ,Fishwives would mean foul mouthed and rough as dog crap .

Anyway if people on here are spending that amount of cash on a car they can act like they want when they pick it up . Good bye

Ok, anyone got shots of Gunmetal Grey (Black Edition) and White (Black Edition)

Me and my brother pick up our cars (hopefully next week) and we have both opted for the bumper sensors, LED lights and the carbon fibre extras (damn expensive those wheels)

Will post some photos up as soon as the guys at Middlehursts call me to come and pick it up.

Now i am getting excited too after looking at pics of UK cars. Its been a long wait. Pinch me somebody.

David and all others who have had their cars, glad you are enjoying your purchases. Can't wait to join you.

Are you getting the Dymag carbon fibre wheels?!

Andy showed me those and they're very impressive. He reckons fitting them is the equivalent of adding 40hp due to the reduction in rotating mass...

Sorry David i miss posted. I'm getting all carbon except the wheels as they are expensive and i haven't even managed to see pics of them. I do like the wheels that are standard but cannot justify £6000 on wheels.

Ah, fair enough. I actually prefer the look of the standard wheels.

So what carbon bits have you ordered?
