Looking to buy a GTR

Hello,

I'm going to be in the market for a GTR in the next few weeks and I'm looking to spend around £35-£37K but one car has been hanging around on the market for a very long time and I'm wondering if anyone has been to see it or got any views on it, it's on the trader, pistonheads and ebay

GTR

Does anybody know anything about this car before I travel chuffing miles to have a look ?

Thanks in advance, all help appreciated

CT17 is probably in an R34 GT-R.

Personally I'd avoid imports with your budget.
You should be able to find a later 09 reg with the sat-nav etc...

Yes, you can change the screen. Its 3 simple steps:

1) Sell your jap import
2) Buy a UK car
3) enjoy

This topic has come up a few times and I dont think anyone has found a cost effective solution. Imports carry additional gearbox risks. Some have been absolutly fine and this many years on will probably be ok to be honest, but there is a risk and is it does go it will be expensive.

You should have enough with your budget to get a UK model.

A number of people would not buy an import GT-R, myself included, so it will be more difficult to sell for you.
