Hello

Hi from the North East. My name is Jonny and I am patiently waiting for a viewing of a R35 in a weeks time. Don't see many gtr's around here and hoping to put that right

Really enjoy reading the threads on here and hope to participate once I buy my car

Hey Jonny, welcome to the forum. There's a few GT-Rs around but still nice and rare up in these parts!

Hi guys,

Been lurking ever since i fell in love with the R35's at Scottish Car Show a few weeks ago, what a machine!! Although, nothing compares to the power of my corsa, lol.

I'm 18, from Central Scotland and hopefully will own a GTR one day If anybody has a car business feel free to pm me as i have a few questions regarding them.

Thumbs up R35 Newb

Hi,

Used to have an R33 GTR which I loved and clocked 80,000 miles in it myself (my daily commute was 300 miles - yes really!), so R35 was always on the cards at some point. Been looking for a few weeks, but missed out on a few. Either they sell like hot cakes or garages advertise stock they no longer have but don't remove them from Autotrader/PistonHeads.

Anyway, I just purchased an 09 plate, happened to be browsing the day it went up on for sale and bought it same day. It pays to work from home sometimes

Drive home was awesome. A few niggles that I don't like but overall they car exceeds my expectations by a long way.

Wait, why am I typing this when I have a GTR on the drive. Laters!

Hi,

Can anyone help? Just got a '13 plate R35 3 weeks ago and got a nail in my Dunlop run flats yesterday!!

I have discovered that they can be repaired (plugged) - does anyone know the best place for this in North Wales? - is there a (high performance) tyre centre to trust it with?

Thanks :-)

My understanding is that the run flats cant be repaired.... switch to MPPS and enjoy more grip!

Hello folks!
Name is Jon. Owned several big power VW golfs....Mk5 GTI and more lately Mk6 R. Had big plans for that, then was going to get a RS6 but mate got a GTR and i'm in love. RS6 handling was rubbish so which annoyed me as I liked them so much.....on the look out for a GTR.

Looking to get a R35 start of 2016, just wanting to get a 50% deposit! Never had a Jap car tho.....:/

Hi All

Names Jonathan

My first post so thought I would drop it in here.

Long term petrol head, picked up my ex demo MY15 GTR at the end of June, drove it straight from the dealer to Litchfield and had the Nismo gearbox software and stage one, booked back in at Litchfield the end of the month for a stage 4, full GTC exhaust and rolling road time. The bug has me already!!!

I am based in the midlands and keen to meet up with some other owners, happy to travel (excuse to drive) a bit would be great to see some other owners/projects, are there any meets or anything happening anytime soon?

Evening all

The names Ben and I'm now an owner of a MY15 Black GTR and ready to get in it but unfortunately it not here for another day.

Also looking to do a few meets if any one can recommend any? I'm from North Yorkshire but happy to travel a few hours.

Hoping to get in touch with someone next week about stage 3/4 but not sure who to use as everyone sounds quality.

Did you manage to repair the RF?
Not sure where in NW you are, but Lobitos, near Prestatyn on coast road are usually v good.

Hi all, great forum.

I'm not an owner yet, but looking to get an 11/12 ish R35 in the new year when my cheap lease E63 AMG (barge) goes back...

Love the hi-tech and modding aspects of the R35 - i'll be looking for a modded car.

Also looking forward to picking all your brains about stuff...

Hello all,

Not a GTR owner....Yet. I have just sold my Range Rover sport after 2 years of boring motoring, I was on the lookout for a E92 M3 or C63 AMG coupe but I've had a change of heart (and increased my budget) and looking for a R35.

My budget is 40k ish, so probably a 59 plate/2010 car is the range ill be in looking on auto trader.
Any advice what to look out for would be great.

Thanks, Aaron
