Thanks guys.
Too many comments to answer each.

Yes, as per the comments on the interior... that's why I'm not adding it (and paying £3,500 for the privilege) to my order!

I think it'll make a nice addition to my metallic red R32 GT-R.

Close up of the gold flake paint...

Agree, if you have one and have spent on modding.

The MY14 clearly (to me) signals a change in direction of the R35 GT-R.

The NISMO is now the car to chase ring times.
The MY14 has a number of improvements to everyday usability and comfort.

It's like they have said "Right, it's fast enough, lets make it better day to day".

I was genuinely surprised how well it rides cracked road, manhole covers and bumps. Very close to the Litchfield kit IMO.
Less noises inside and smoother while still being flipping quick.

A lot of little changes, but it just feels so composed on not particularly good roads.

Only thing it's really crying out for is the carbon trim around the grey plastic gearstick surround.
Better get one of those ordered again...

Can you list the lots of little extras?

I remember when the DBA came out thinking the same thing about the sum of numerous little changes but have not seen such a list for the my14.

The early brochure is here Adam:

NEW NISSAN GT-R

Basically it's:

LED lights, (still Xenon main)
Front lights that move up as you go faster to shine further ahead.
New compound tyres.
New suspension. (Bilstein)
Extra insulation.
Noise cancelling through the BOSE, to reduce background noise but leave the engine noise etc...
Upgraded multi-function meter. (looks a bit more modern)
Carbon fibre fancy bits on the dials.
No off position for the lights, Auto or On are the only choices. (odd?)

Think that's it, but may have missed something.

As I said, just a combination of bits to make it more composed and a better GT car.

No doubt a lot of people won't feel the upgrade is worth it.
Which is fine.
But then a lot of people buy a GT-R and only drive it on the road... so it takes all sorts.

But for me, without a GT-R, it's worth going for the new over a used MY12/13 as they are too similar to my previous MY11.
Family of four in a GT-R, this ticks the boxes.

Signs are that the R35 is holding it's value quite well.
So I'm happy with the figures.
I remember 20BL saying his SLS lost £80k in 11 months...

To me the question is, is it worth a bit more than the MY13 was. Answer is certainly yes. Just for the suspension alone and 3 year warranty.
Particularly as it's the first GT-R with a colour paint I don't want to wrap up.

General use Flynn.
Family of four now.

R32 is probably a more involving track day hooning car.

Congrats, I'm sure Sly will be very happy
How long do you need to wait for delivery? presumably as you've not gone for the fancy interior it'll be sooner rather than later?

No availability showing on the system as the Demo cars are still awaiting delivery from the boat/docks to the dealers apparently...

Estimated late March or early April.

As I've ordered before the end of the month I get the service pack included for free.
It's been suggested it won't be continued, but may be as we all know car companies say these things to get orders.

It's rumored that the two fancy interiors (Reddy brown and ivory/beige) will increase the delivery time to around 4/5 months as the car is trimmed somewhere else after it's built.
