I'm still very happy with my 34 and love among many things it talent for maintaining great resale prices. [/QUOTE]

>Glad to hear it.

Also when the new one comes out the 34 is goning to age rapidly, whereas for the time being is still the icon of supercar brutishness and I love it!!!!

>"THE NEW ONE" is the V35 GT-R, and is coming out in 2007. The >R34 GT-R is already beginning to age - product lifecycles and all >that.

Also there is the problem of the new one costing at least 45k.

Whats going to happen with new front end height regulations to do with pedestrian safety? Hope nissan can somehow keep the skylines wall like front end

perhaps the sonic boom helps to clear pedestrians!!

Very happy boy at the moment, just got my car back from abbey after 2 and a half months, to get a bottomend bearing and crankshaft replaced! Need to run the engine in again though, which is a bit of a bummer, but when it goes back may have to get a few little tweaks....cant wait!!!
