Highest milage UK R35?

Any 30k+ milage cars here? Common problems for higher milage cars? My local HPC had one in last week with over 35k on it and only one fluid service! (engine being rebuilt)

35k miles with one service? Good way to **** an engine

The person who drove that for 35k on one oil change doesn't deserve a GTR, what an idiot

But seriously, can't believe that the owner could possibly be that reckless or such a fruit case. This isn't about money, but surely the BEaST should be taken off their incompetent hands...

32k miles so far, serviced as it should be and - touch wood - no issues apart from the Bell housing done under warranty at 24k service - superb car!

I'm more interested in why the engine is being rebuilt, and whether the lack of engine oil change was a contributory factor.

Maybe Nissan are right to insist on 6/12 oil changes on pre 2011 models?

Discuss...

Mine has just under 35k on the clock....

Dashboard changed at 32k (faulty illumination)
Pads and discs at 30k (just before my purchase)
60% re-spray at 33k (attacked by a tent in the high winds)


Other than that all good……

You see the rest of us are educated rich correct spelling wimps when it comes to really splashing out on a proper supercar, like the Porsche GT3, so we look for uneducated poor spelling buffoon's to pick on that makes us feel superior even though we drive the same Datsun

Genuinely LOL! seriously....haven't heard the word buffoon for ages and didn't know Mr Yu was back on the forum

Glad i've not got the highest mileage, and hopefully T80’s GT-R is still going strong as I’m about to treat myself to a COBB.
