Hey guys! I recently picked up a 1999 R34 GTR V-Spec so I thought I'll share some pictures with everyone here

As some of you may know I have been a R35 owner for a fair few years - 3/4 years in the UK, 2 years (and counting) here in Singapore/Malaysia .. But somehow the 35 has never managed to quite scratch that "proper" GTR itch!

I could never justify buying a 34 while I was in the UK and with prices that just keep rising I kind of wish I did so earlier!

R34's are pretty rare and due to import laws they are even harder to come by out here.. At the moment there are only 2 for sale in the region!

I spent 3 months looking for the right car and eventually came across this beauty that I just had to have..

She's pretty well specced .. Forged internals, single turbo.. Not sure exactly how much power she's running as its not been on a dyno yet but one of the things that's on my list of things to do!

I have a few things planned over the next few months..

- Full service, belt change and retune
- Retrim stock steering wheel..previous owner had great taste but I can't stand the red Nardi wheel he put on.. I had to buy a stock steering wheel all the way from Australia!
- Paint the CF bonnet to match the rest of the car ***65288;!!)
- Headunit double din upgrade
- Tinting
- Rear spacers (or new wheels!)

Met up with a friend last week for a coffee, he bought his car a week prior!

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures.. I can't wait to take her out again this weekend! Next up is a photoshoot with the 35!

For now I'll leave you with a spec list and a quick video of how the Nismo Spec Pro exhaust sounds..

Andrew, I'd paint the rear arch extensions too when you do the bonnet dude. Other than that you already know my thoughts:wavey:

Haha yeah bro, I can't stand the carbon dipped arches!

Some updates!

The audio system needed sorting out badly.. As much as I like keeping interior as OEM as possible, the old cassette player just had to go!

In went a new Kenwood double din unit with wifi, Bluetooth, GPS etc etc.

Fitted some sound proofing and Alpine 6.5 Co-axials all around

Reverse camera connected

Also had an alarm system installed..

Unfortunately the car wasn't running right after all the electrical work, not sure what happened but it couldn't hold idle and seemed to be misfiring. Still drives so next stop was to leave it in the dependable hands of my usual workshop

So this week she's getting the engine troubleshooting done, full oil and belt changes, redo of the intake/turbo piping it make it neater, wheel spacers, suspension tweaks.. And probably a remap

Things are getting expensive already!

Where was the wheel retrimmed and how much if you don't mind either me asking? I like the look of that

Hi mate they were done by a local automotive upholstery shop called Gosford Leather. I believe they are a franchise and there are branches overseas

I paid around £30 for the work, genuine leather too

Lovely car mate, what are the wheel specs of the TE37's? Im running a set and iv noticed that the rear could do with coming out around 10mm also.

Thanks man. The TE37s are 18x9.5"

Thanks guys

Here are some more pictures

Somehow managed to lose my B Pillar on the highway! Damn clips are were so loose!

She's finally tuned properly.. 1.5 Bar

Next week my new suspension should arrive .. Tein Flex Z brand new from Japan.. Can't wait, the current HKS hipermax is just far too stiff

Also on the way to me is a new Fcon cable and a replacement B pillar!
