So far it seems a great forum with a wealth of knowledge.
welcome

Same as you, I have a 2012 C63 Coupe and looking to get a MY11 R35 in 2017 so looking for advice. Do I buy a 4.25 tuned car or standard and tune myself. Must be more cost effective buying an already tuned car but does it come with the risk of it being 'abused' .......

Hi all,

New to the forum and looking for a little help if possible. I know you've had this question asked a million times before but looking for a little piece of mind. I've got the chance of getting a 2016 GTR which I've wanted for a few years now. Just wanting to know the servicing intervals of the car and rough costs. Will only be doing around 8k per year.

Also how long would you expect tyres/ disc/ pads to last with normal driving( won't ever be tracked) just the odd blast on normal roads plus rough costs of the above.

Thanks

HI Gents, wanted to say hello from germany. Got my first GTR with import racing stage 1 two years ago. After selling it I noticed that I got addicted and could not do without a R35 GTR. So I bought an Alpha 10 build with 1000hp some weeks ago. Will drive next year as my baby will be in the garage over the winter.
As the German forum is quite boring I will be more active here.

Cheers
Gtrrr

Newbie from Bedfordshire

Hi to all, will be picking up a MY13 GTR this week. Hoping to get to the Battalion event on Saturday. Had a of lot of quick cars in the past and track car, but mostly i miss a 996tt which had Manthey Racing engine upgrades and other brake and zorst mods etc etc. Was completely mental and been missing it ever since i sold it about 7 yrs ago - so hoping now the GTR will fill the void! Doubtless i'll soon start down the slippery slope of modding :O)

Would also be great to meet up with other owners in Beds/Bucks/Herts/Cambs etc.

Cheers
Nick

Congrats on the new car looks really nice even though it's upside down. I have just turned 37 too and treated myself to a MY17 GTR. I love them. I was working in Purley High St and live in 30 mins from there.

Wow. We're in a similar boat. Same age, live in orpington, wife just about to have our second...

I haven't bought yet. Planning on end of January after Xmas is out the way.

Have you got the baby in the back yet? What seat are you using?

My wife is expecting our second In May but my 4 year old uses a maxi cosi but I'll be looking at what baby seat to use. I'm in Bexley so pretty much around the corner from you.

If it's not too much trouble in the new year would you mind if I came and had a look at the seat in the car? Still need to have confidence that my 5"2 wife, 3 yr old and new baby could fit in it before I make the purchase.
