yes, I'm getting a little frustrated in calling, viewing, testing and repeating the process. I was hoping this may just be that a ABS pump fix and we would be ok.

I did find a ABS pump from ebay for like 350GBP, do you think its worth the risk in getting this car if this is the only issue with the vehicle? If I proceed I will get the car re-inspected and double check the error code from the local GTR guru thats trusty?

Regarding warranty, 99% of HK GTR's have non as the local Nissan importer didn't import the car until JDM MY11 and MY12. All of the vehicles I get to see locally are either 2008 or you will need to jump to 2011/2012. 2011/12 are abt the same price as a used Lambo Gallardo in HK. (not saying I would prefer the lambo, just they aren't cheap)

I do have an option, there is a local UK GTR MY09 reg. 2010 forsale and if this does not pan out I will buy that one although its abt 15K GBP more. Run like 4000 miles and mint.

The 08 car is mint, has most of the mods I want (not excessive) and is beautifully priced with 10,000km (abt 6000 miles).

What do you think?
