Post R32 GTR Vs R33 GTR

Hi all.... newbie as you probably guessed from the title

This topic has probably been done soooo many times but i couldn't find anything when searching, soz.

I'm gonna be looking at getting a skyline in the new year but don't know yet how much i got to spend

So what are the differences and what are the pro's and con's between the R32 GTR and R33 GTR ? Worth getting the V-spec R33 ?

Is there a buying guide anywhere ?

Best way to buy one... i.e. Trade, Private, Import etc etc Can anyone recommend any dealers ?

I prefer the 32, as i have one
Personal preferance as i like the squarer lines. Obviously some will prefer the 33 for its smother lines and more uup-to-dateness.

As for vspec, if you are going to mod it a fair extent then i dont see any difference as most of the parts will be changed anyway. As ive never driven a vspec and non vspec i cant really comment anymore, sorry mate.

R33 drive system is a bit more refined, ie faster acting attessa and v specs have the ability to adjust torque left and right on the rear axle..

I prefer the R32 over a R33 which I dont really like the look of, but funds permitting id love an R34

Quoted for truth

R34 is amazing. I'm gutted it still stands so far away from me "DAM YOU GIRLFRIEND AND HOUSE!"

Most certianly!

It is on my list of things to own before my time is up!.... The R32 GTR is now in the workshop being MOT'd and stuff ready for pickup sometime in Jan, so that will do for now.

(FYI anyone nice who owns an R34 GTR that is willing to take me for a spin in one PM away! )

R32 is lighter and better looking tbh...i always thought the R33 was the odd one out from the 32 and the 34

The R32 was the 1st 4WD GTR and all the rest are just copies. Yes, they might have some better qualities, but as with all models, they get heavier and heavier.

The R32 is, of course, the best.

Not many impartial views there so you can see its a personal choice - pros and cons both ways.
Youe budget will be the main factor so best to set your limit then start looking and see what you like,
Go to Prospec or GT-Cultures website and you will find all the technical stuff on each model

Both great cars, but it's deffo the R33 GT-R for me. R32 looks way, way too dated imo......

Each to their own though
