good to know if Nissan swap mine from 2011 to 2014. I was worried it might put people off but it seems to be the opposite.

I think if it was any other car it probably would but the cost of the GTR transmission sways it the other way, this was what persuaded me to get my car and also that it had not been launched and all with low temperatures.

Mine's mechanically perfect but unfortunately it doesn't hold water, lol.

Was on my knees checking the rear tyre treads the other day, as you do, and noticed the rear undertray was wet with oil.

It's been diagnosed as leaking from the gearbox casing joint, which is a liquid gasket type joint apparently, so they're fitting a new gearbox subject to receiving confirmation from Japan after they've checked the Flickr data.

Thanks, the latest news is that they've requested photos and videos supporting the diagnosis, and they want a UV test, what ever that is?

Yes but you need to be sitting down when the price comes through.
Just go to Litchfields for a better one.
