most mileage covered
 
don't know if this has been brought up before (probably)
but whos got the most mileage on there car?

any reached 50,000 yet on same engine and box?

was a guy down here the other day had 48k on a white stock my10 but that's the most ive seen as of yet

There's one in eBay with over 60k on the clock

saucyboy 6th September 2014 05:39 PM

Yeah bud has been done before. There's few on here well passed 80k if I remember correctly. Lots use them as a daily so big miles aren't uncommon. Not that they are really big miles lol, but you know what I mean :)

It's funny really looked at one today 09 with 35 k and it bothered me a bit as a bit high compared to others on here but in reality it's nothing .

My 09 has 37k ish.... I would rather buy one with 35k miles than 10k.... As long as it's serviced right... Higher miles show a used car... Low miles show an under used car and probably 10k of hard fun miles... IMO

You'd be shocked, I've seen cars with 100k (non gtr) and as long as they are serviced and maintained they are no different

pulsarboby 6th September 2014 08:19 PM

Yeah tbh the mileage even at over a 100k is nothing for a big 6 pot
Depends as said on whether it's been maintained properly or just abused

If i do a track day in mine I drop the oil after every one I do as for the sake of a bit of oil and filter it could cost you a lot more if there's fuel contamination and you end up spinning a shell or the like

Robbie J' was one of the first to have one in the UK as we supplied it before Nissan were doing UK cars. (we got told off by Nissan HQ lol)

not sure of the miles on his but that must be up to 80k i guess.

Switzer were bragging that one of their customers stage 5 cars had done 100k without blowing up!

NurburgringGTR has done 40k + on two cars very well used track machines (well looked after) so I suspect he has done more combined miles and run them harder than anyone else?

guyblue10 6th September 2014 09:22 PM

Bought mine new in late June '09 - It's at 88k and a bit miles - Original engine and 'box

That's an interesting point. Many cars will have over 50k miles on the clock, but probably 3 or 4 owners have done those miles. I wonder who has actually driven the most miles in a GT-R, or how many miles the average GT-R owner covers per year?

I've done quite a few miles, had 2 GT-R's since Dec 12 and covered 35k miles.
Just another thought, I average around 15 mpg so that's around 14,000 in petrol haha, best part of 10k of that in fuel tax. Also 6k on tyres in 21 mnths, oh dear lol.

My first R35 (09 model) I covered 52K miles in it without any major problems, my present R35 (2011 model) I'm just shy of 30K miles now. As long as they are serviced as required and you take care of them then seem to soak up the miles easily.

side question, how do you find the 09 compared to 11?
