Pics of the GTR.. finally!

So its high time I put some pics up of my recently acquired GTR (purchased from another forum member). Thanks again to everyone who helped me by givving me great advice. It definitely enabled me to buy what is probably one of the best examples of an 09 GTR in the UK.

Im not the greatest photographer, but I thought Id try and take some cool pics and put some effort into post processing. Results:

Awesome. Identical to mine. The wheels look so much better on the premium. Had mine since xmas but hardly used it because of the god awful weather.

Really is the best colour by far. Shines up great.

Talking

Mate she looks awesome Some lovely shots there!!

Chris, don't worry about the bad weather. The GTR is great fun when it gets slippery LOL. I'm a complete detailing freak and regularly spend hours with the DA polisher but it doesn't stop me taking it out when ever I can. If you let the UK weather put you off you'd never go out ; )

Saying that I'm just about to start the clean up session from last weekends Runs. 350 miles in the rain has made it very dirty lol. Guess where i'll be for the next 4 hours or so

Nice photos. The effort paid off!
Good to see you went for the fastest colour too.
DMG shows the lines of the car properly (imho, before I get stamped on by the soft swirly black lovers!)

Apologies for the slow response fellas. Been flat out with work and travelling so havent really had a chance to log on until today. You guys are right, I havent spent enough time driving which is why the exhaust still looks new. Planning on taking her out for a nice drive this weekend. Bloody excited!

Thanks mate. Did not use a polisher, just hand washed. Because the car was in such great condition, it came up really well. As for the exhaust, its just because its hardly been driven.

Really good pics, I love the pic of the back taken with the camera low down, sometimes its difficult to get good pics which really show off the car, you have achieved that and some.

I use a very fine wire wool and meguires metal polish for the exhaust tips, takes 5 mins to get them all nice and shiny!!!
