Newbie..

Picked up my first GTR (MY12) a month ago and love it. Mates have been telling me to get one for years....finally caved in, and its is great. Couple of little tweaks have it up to 600bhp (just to make it a little different!).

Cheers.

Hi,
Not an owner yet but the search has begun. Looking for a late or near new car for weekend hooning with the odd track day. As a serial super car owner it's going to be interesting to see how this works out as a comparison.

Cheers
Steve

Any thoughts on ex demo cars, it seems there's not much else about that isn't the other side of the country from me?

Cheers

I'm (still) not an owner as I started a home renovation project this year. Almost done though! Can never fault the wisdom of renovating your home though, whether residential or investment property.


Property is almost done and then I can get back on track to get the car (house renovation has been less than I budgeted so far and no big surprises!)!! Wait a few months of saving as I'd rather not liquidate any of my savings (they've gone up post Brexit!!).


What's everyone's thoughts on getting a low mileage, standard 2012 (or even 2013!) car in the 50-55k range? This seems harder and harder to find.

Used cars either 09-10 models or 2014+ at the 65k + range.

We need pics!!! Sounds fun, can you clarify tyre sizes in the complete size ie 285/35/20!! As 335 sounds too big to have the same height or rolling radius for the 285 front !
