You don't have to justify it. Money no object, we'd all have one

Yeah each to their own, but as Richard said, an ex demo My13 can be had for around 62k, 500 miles on the clock, I would go for that personally.

I do like the 'new red' colour of your new car tho Richard. Congrats on a great car

So in my opinion the upgrades this year are worth it.

If I had not gone new, I'd have gone for a demo MY13 around £62k... wrapped it and added the suspension kit.
For a six month newer car that hasn't been used and abused I'm more than happy paying the extra.

Every time a new GT-R is mentioned we have people in here saying it's not worth it and how their older cars are better.
They may be better in some ways. But they didn't come out of the factory like that. So there is cost and extra wear to factor in.
Plus they are older with more miles on them.

Lets face facts. A newer car with less miles is worth more, but of depreciation.
Just as modding an older car has lower depreciation plus you don't get back a lot of the money you spend on mods.

Any way you look at it, under £80k list still makes a GT-R a performance bargain.
Even if the drivers of the early ones paid less.
I completely agree.Apparently Mark sold another red one that week.
Jeff.

I know he had someone else looking the same time as me, but they hadn't arrived by the time I left.
He only had the red one that day as it had been borrowed from Nissan HQ.

I would be very interested in the noise suppression and suspension comfort compared with the MY12 with its assymetric suspension.Congrats on your purchase.
Jeff.

Do they have any decent finance offers on buying new Richard?

Or is it down to the individual HPC?

To be honest Flynn I don't know as I didn't ask about finance.

If the LEAF deals are anything to go by I'd source it yourself.
We buy LEAFs for work and the interest charges are noticably less than Nissan.

Interesting read. I've often wondered myself If I should trade in for a new but I've never bought anything that I didn't buy completely out-right.
I'f I sold my 09 now I'd get my money back but I'f I was to sell at this moment, It would only be to replace with another R35.

Congrats on the new.

Now that your using super Ron, Will the new be under his supervision - should you add anything obviously

Picked up my Vermillion Red MY14 GT-R today with the Recaro seats.

Only done 30 miles so will start a new thread over the next few days when I've driven it more.

Yes, it's a big improvement over the MY11-13 cars for refinement and comfort.
Certainly rides better than my MY11 did on the stock suspension and NON-run flats.

Easy to drive too. Either it doesn't follow imperfections in the road as much or they've done something to the steering because it's just more relaxing and you don't feel like you need to constantly be alert.

Not sure if it's the noise cancelling or extra insualtion but it's quiet too.
You do get road noise from the tyres at speed, but it's just so quiet around town.

So there you have it. Easier to drive, more comfortable and quieter.
You can see where they have focused for this upgrade.

My first car with the Recaro seats too.
My MY10 and MY11 had the premium seats and I thought I may have made a mistake with the more sporty Recaros.
Yet they seem a bit softer and than the ones in the MY13 I sat in at the dealership.

Tired now and can't be bothered to take new pictures.
Will probably start a new thread when I do, or add them here.
