you've got a day less than me to wait! might give the dealership a call and see if Friday is do-able!

is yours standard? i'm already planning on getting a y-pipe fitted before I pick it up and I've always wanted to put the HKS SSQV BOVs on too just to add a bit of filth to it the y-pipe maintains warranty so that could be it for now though

Yep, standard (at the moment), likely to get it over to Litchfields in the not too distant future for the Y-Pipe at the very least. And there's nothing wrong with adding a bit of woosh to your motor

hi Miles,

literally just picking my first GTR this weekend so i'm also new here

I can only share what I've learnt from my own experience so far:

- look out for mould in the door speakers (you can shine a torch through the grill to see if there is any)
- look out for rust/bubbling of the paint under the wing mirrors as there's a common issue with water getting in there
- a dealer can tell you whether the car has been launched or not
- due to the residual value of the cars, I found that I could go for something newer, and if you can afford a decent deposit, even a brand new one is not much different in terms of monthly finance payments, due to Nissan offering a very low APR on new models
- drivers seat bolster can often be worn
- surround around the auto gear lever can often get very scuffed
- there were some facelift changes as you go to newer cars, e.g. newer NAV system with hard drive for music and some cosmetics, slight increases in stock power, etc.
- tyres/brakes can be expensive to maintain so worth checking if they're recently refreshed and same for certain services being more expensive than others so checking where it's up to on the service schedule, what was done last, etc.

hope some of this helps!

newbie

hello all
new to the forum . I will be an owner very shortly wanted a look at buyers guide before I part with my cash to give me an incite to possible points of concern if any. good info anyway . previously had a gto tt modified (correctly not with a bc and sod all else and claim pathetic power outputs to all and sundry ) putting out a modest 420 it was a fun car to drive . unfortunately I am now unable to drive a wobbly gear knob so the r35 will be perfect for me . I've been without a toy for a few years and desperate to get back to having a stupid grin on my face of a week end
previously had bikes as well another thing I desperately miss last bike was a TLR1000 . thanks for looking and I will be getting more involved as time go's on
kind regards
dave

PS versus BHP

Hello everyone,

I'm buying my neighbour's GT-R in April to try and spice up my daily commute to/from Oxford. I hope it likes traffic jams!

I have a question though. The car is a Premium Edition registered new on 20th June 2011. Does that make it the Facelifted 2012 version? It's stock and I can't tell if it has 530PS or 550PS and how that relates to BHP.

It currently has the original Dunlop runflat tyres fitted. They need replacing. Should I use run flats again?

Look forward to meeting some of you.

Hey everyone,

New guy here. I picked up my R35 a couple months ago and am just joining this forum. This is my dream car and I am very lucky to have one at such a young age. I am only 24 years old (23 when I purchased it). I look forward to getting to know people on here and getting some info on what mods to do! Right now, I am vinyl wrapping it a pearl white with plans for carbon fiber front fenders, duckbill trunk and hood, all from F1Carbon. I would like to get the Alpha9 package next summer. My current mods are a Meischercraft turboback exhaust, K&N intakes, 1000cc Injector Dynamic injectors and a Cobb 91/92 Stage 2 tune. Thanks for having me!

Hi Everyone

I Just got my R35 refitted for my hobby, (I do time attack). I wanted to introduce myself... and maybe brag about my car a bit. I just got it back after the refit and it looks grand. All carbon doors, roof, boot lid and bonnet led. Plus a nice shiny new paint job.
