I'll be getting a reverse camera fitted on the weekend (I know, gadgets huh!), and then thinking about Stage 1 or 2 upgrades.

Good luck.
Not at HPC it ain't.

My next is a 30 month service in around four and a half months. I believe it's just an oil change which I think is approx £250 or £160 if you provide the oil - that's via HPC.

It changed to 9000 miles or yearly on the MY11.

Don't you love it when that happens? If they haven't changed the oil spec (have they?), then why the change to annual servicing - or why have 6 monthly in the first place?

I actually see that as a bonus.

Given there are so few changes mechanically which would account for Nissan relaxing servicing times, my take on it is that after 4 or so years of data downloaded from every GTR serviced, they feel confident that yearly is fine.

That just makes me comfortable doing what I wanted to do anyway once my warranty disappears in May.

Obviously I'll swap out fluids when tracking and since I'll happily swap to FFL4 for the tranny, that's a huge cost saving over OEM each time.

I agree. Was more wondering why it was 6 months / 6k miles in the first place?

6 monthly servicing is a bit of a pain, especially for people who only do a few thousand miles a year.
