The brake pad change has got to be a typo, surely?

What kind of fcuking pads do they use?! I guess if by "rotor service" they mean "new carbon discs" then it might explain the price

Any idea what 'Car Inspection: 200,000 JPY ($1727 USD)' entails?
Surely not just the standard cost to give everything the once over?

These are Nissan charges at the Nissan dealerships. Your local tuner should be less, yes/no?

Notice these people are already not calling it the officially announced name: 'Nissan GTR' , but 'Nissan R35 GT-R'.

Main dealer servicing is never cheap.

If it's not serviced at a main dealer though doesn't it invalidate the warranty?

Good point.

Decisions decisions. To keep her stock, or to twiddle with her twiddly bits...

It depends on how much faith you have in your tuner.

All or nothing time...

Not in the UK IIRC? Manufacturers are not allowed to MAKE you go with them for services to keep it valid. As long as normal schedules/procedures are followed anyone can do it.

Except for the brake pads/discs change the rest looks reasonable to me. Obviously the gearbox needs special care hence the cost but the price for the brake change is a total joke. Each disc cannot cost more than 50,000 Yen and the pads can't be more than 60-70,000 Yen for the set. Add a bit of labour, fluids and you are still very far away from 460,000 Yen!! I can understand that a sports car of these capabilities (which also weighs like a fully laden station wangon!!) will eat throught brakes rather quickly but surely the discs will last longer then the pads??

I wonder how long a set of those tyres will last!

oil change with no filter for $216 seems a tad steep unless it has aa rediculous amount of oil in it !!

agree on the brakes too.

It will be an expensive car to run.

I agree the rest of the costs are acceptable for a car of this level of performance, brakes excluded of course. You can easily change the brakes yourself though.

Apparently this is because they are worried that the 'average' buyer will not understand how to bed in the new pads - so they get around it by swapping with an all new set of pre-bedded disks and pads....

oh - and if you are driving I'd expect the tyres to last 1 trip to Hakone

Oil change is the same sort of price you would pay here in the uk at a skyline specialsts place.
