It looks very similar to the orient red of evo X.
I like the interior but not the colour

Yes, the actual interior is nicely done.
Plus you get rear seats trimmed the same as the fronts.
Unfortunately it's only in red/brown or ivory/beige.

The free choices are the usual Recaro and Premium (black), both of which have the quite basic looking rear seats.

I like the interior colour but not keen on the diamond stitching and the covering of the centre console.

Wish you'd taken more pictures Richard... like the new display. How did the road noise sound when you drove it then? Wonder how good the noise cancelling is too.

I prefer the Recaro seats!

Sorry, I got a bit distracted.

I'm guessing the noise cancelling is quite good, because it seemed rather quiet in there for a GT-R.
Other than the usual GT-R engine noise and clunk/whirr as it does it's thing with the transmission as you put it in gear and pull away.

But for the record I was not permitted to drive as it was a Nissan HQ car, not a dealer car.
I was a passenger.

Will you sell the 32 when you get the new car?
I would go beige or black with the seats!

I'd be interested in retro fitting the noise cancelling. I wonder where it is handled.

Red makes the GTR look cheap and nasty. Dare I say as well that red interior will not age well. Not that any jap interior ages well

Good grief no, I'd only have got about 2 or 3 weeks use out of it!

The R32 is ace.

You have compared the suspension with the litchfield setup, without driving it??

They must have very good salesman in Romford

I've been a passenger in my previous GT-Rs.
It's pretty close in terms of comfort.

Actually Richard, that's a fair point, the thing about the Litchfield suspension kit is the composure over B-roads. High speed undulations that would previously unsettle the car and require you to input a fair amount of correction into the steering wheel. It's not just abount the composure of the car that you can feel in the ride, but the reduction in work load at the wheel without losing communication from the steering.

Not sure you'd get that from the passenger seat.

It's a bold statement to make such a sweeping comparison on a passenger ride.

A few weeks back you were saying that the GTR only came alive on track, which I agree with. That's why I'm a little confused to why you've bought another as a road car.

I'll go have a look myself when the demos come into to Middlehurst.

Well I look forward to doing a better comparison later on...

But my initial impression is that I won't be changing it.

Whoa, hang on guys.

I stated in my first post (on a thread called "Impressions")...

Quote:
They have finally sorted out the suspension too.
While I didn't drive it the comfort on the road was very good, certainly noticably better than the MY11 upgraded suspension cars and with this I can't see any reason why you'd change for the Litchfield kit set up. It's close.

I find myself seriously tempted by a BAC mono for a track car.

People have commented that I've not taken my car on track, but the truth is that I don't think the GTR makes for a great track car. It's too heavy and heavy on fuel, tyres and brakes. I'm sure it's fun but is it £2000 in consumables more fun than a £20k caterham?

Rich, go for it!

I think we all knew Richard was kidding himself and he would be back in one pretty sharpish.

Fair play, looks a lovely car.
