Good going on keeping it throughout the high miles. After the first service book was finished what did you and the other high mileage owners hear do?

Mine used to "chirp" between 2nd and 3rd. Litchfield’s gave the solenoid pack a clean last year and I have not heard it since.

I'm at 85K miles for early 09. Always service at Litchfield and I now have two stamps on the inside back cover. There is room for 4 more so a couple of years left before I need to think about a new book.

The only 'chirping' i had was where the hub nuts needing tightening.

Interesting on the solenoid pack - chirp is there all the time now....

The chirp is there when the gearbox is cold but should disappear when the oil warms up, mine did the same.

Credit to you for driving the car so long! How is the chassis holding up? Dave @ GTR Shop had an example in that was quite rusty

Seems to me most GTR owners flip their cars when they hit your sort of mileage and look for one with half the mileage. When they get past 65k they're virtually unsaleable even if they're in very good or excellent condition. You've got to have deep pockets to do that.

Does anyone else find they keep referring back to this excellent thread to get the latest updates on guyblue10's car?!

Everytime I read the thread over again it makes me feel good and positive about my own car - its easy to get "worried" about all those weird noises our GT-R's make and this thread gives me hope that mine will be fine as the miles start to rack up.

So thanks guyblue10 and keep the updates coming as and when you can

171,886 miles

Think I missed posting the last one:

3rd September 2018, 12k service, local garage, £143. 161803 miles

29th May 2019, 36k service, local garage, £654. 171886 miles

Passed the MOT with no problems. Rust is coming back under the passenger door handle and on the boot rim, same place as last time. Car now sits outside by the coast (Moved here 2 years and still trying to get planning permission to build a garage, but that's a completely different story....)

I've been using the part-ex values from Autotrader for the stats. That seems to have nosedived this time....here they are...

Total Maintenance costs: £34269.24

Total Tyre costs: £8823

So, having done 171,886 miles in 9 years 11 months, an average of 17,327 miles/year:*

Total service, maintenance and tyre costs: £43092

Original Cost: £52,345. Current part-ex value: £13,900. Total Depreciation: £38,445

Total annual costs including maintenance, repairs, tyres and depreciation: £8219, or 47.4p per mile
