Yank moving into the UK. On a R33 hunt

Hi all! Hope everyone is having a good week.

This conversation does not need to happen in this thread. Just the first place I could think of. Happy to DM, email, etc.

I am a bit of a newbie to this model line, but I've only ever been able to own one on a video game. Now I have a real opportunity to own one and I want to give myself the best opportunity at a success story, and a general good time.

Now that that's out of the way. I'm looking to get solid info about acquiring and maintaining a R33 GTS-t or GT-R. Am 35, am paid. Not pipe dreams. Will be living in country for 3-5 years, and will be exporting back to the states when leaving. Based on our 25 year exemption for import customs, I cannot...realistically...look into R34 models. I'll be in country 2019-2022 (maybe 2024), so 1997-1999 is my target range. This would not be my first experience in country, or in driving a RHD vehicle.

Initial questions. -Are there additional local forums or groups I should know about?

anything specific for purchasing? -Are there shops I should know about -Banks that specialize in vehicles of this age -Car loans in the UK in general

Best options for locating used vehicles?

I've been waiting for an opportunity like this for a lifetime. I grew up on Gran Tourismo and Japanese autosport, so this has been a dream of mine. I'm absolutely determined to make this a reality. We can DM here, thread on this... or point me to a forum. Would also be cool to make some like minded mates for weekend drives and whatnot.

Appreciate the time.

Also I notice you have a UK spec car, any idea what number it is, so you can update the UK Spec thread.

Hey newbie here, I'm from cornwall/devon area, looking to buy my dream car the R33 GTR now.

I was thinking of buying one that is currently in stock with HJA in Essex but unsure what they are like or if they are trustworthy and if the cars are as decent as they make them out to be. So I will probably go down the import route with torque gt again, as I have used them a couple times now and they always get top grade and mint examples and know their stuff.

Look forward to speaking to you all, as I'll probably be asking some questions and needing info at some point haha. Thanks

I would recommend HJA. I’ve never bought anything from them personally. However I’ve seen some of there previous stock and it’s extremely good. If it’s already there with them it may be worth a viewing.

Torque GT are also great. They’ve got an awesome R33 V-Spec in blue. That’s worth a look if your budget can stretch.

Welcome to the club

Thank you for giving me some heads up and feedback on how HJA are, they do seem very good just by like you have mentioned looking at there old and current stock, I do like how they take lot's of pictures of every section of the car and of the underside of the car too, that is rare to find these days, shows how confident they are I guess.

The R33 GTR Torque GT have is lovely just it's out of my price range, I'd be looking spending at least 10K less. That's another reason I'd import as it is cheaper, I should be able to source a mint one for about 20K in Japan give or take a couple grand and some luck added.

The HJA midnight purple and series 3 white GTR's are the two I have my eye's on at the moment however I doubt they will drop in price. But I guess you don't know till you ask right

Be surprised if HJA will budge on price, I did approach them about a motor a couple years back and they wouldn’t budge. But I guess they’re bringing in good solid cars so you pay the premium.

Totally depends what you want and how much you wanna spend. But You’ll always end up spending money on whatever you buy! It’s too addictive to leave it

That's my thoughts too I'd be surprised if they would but I guess it never hurts to try!

Well they have exactly what I want I could probably get the same if I waited and got one from Japan but it's just that wait of 4-6 months haha when tey have them available right now and is as good as you're gonna get I guess.

Yeah exactly I'd always have to change something I guess we all do with these car's, definitely can't be left haha

HJA are totally okay - 100% IMO.


They have some top quality stock.

Send / post the links to the 2 cars you are looking at - PM if you prefer - I'll take a look.
