Hello all, in my trek around the UK (call me the Micheal Palin of GT-R) I dropped into Halifax Lightcliffe on my way passed to a client just to see about the rattle which was being a pain all day.

Michael (After Sales manager) and Paul (GT-R Tech) were absolutely first class and very welcoming. Very obviously both proper petrol heads and enthusiasts rather than just 'doing a job' I had high hopes after they turned up to the TRL Dyno day meet and we had a great chat about all things GT-R.

Paul had a root around underneath and I booked it in for this Thursday for a half day just to try to get to the bottom of it.

Turned up and Paul had come in early specially to make a start. After a good run out and taking the back end to bits and testing everything he tightened a few heat shield bits etc which made a big difference but we tracked the main issue to resonating brakes (rear) on bumpy roads (lots up north) on no, or trailing throttle at around 40 MPH. Nightmare to track down but he was patient and a process of elimination. New MY11 spec clips on order and will be fitted when they come in. Sarah the Service Advisor (also extremely nice) came out for full check of the car after a quick fly squash wash and can't recommend them highly enough. I know we all love to hate the dealers but in the two new ones I have been to over the past month or two they were excellent and labour rates not ridiculous either.

Thanks and Well done all at Lightcliffe! Please god sort the coffee out though - I think I know where the old transmission oil goes haha!

Glad to hear. When I spoke to the NHPC about the launch and other things they seemed really helpful and very much on the ball. Excellent :thumbsup:

Not yet - on order. Getting the MY11 ones as stronger apparently. Will keep you posted when all done and rattle free. Oh and all under warranty as is horrific version of rattle not normal tinkling sound you get from fronts.

Hope it does sort it. Going through tunnels with the window open sounds like something is about to fall off:nervous:
