Any opinions on buying second hand guys?

I am looking at buying an 09 or newer UK car and according to PistonHeads and Autotrader I can save up to £8k on GTRs that have done around 5k miles over a new one.

My real concern is how do I know it hasn't been launched which will ruin my warranty?

Thanks in advance!

It's not launching that void your warranty, it's switching VDC off when the situation doesn't dictate (eg mud/snow) and that then leading to a failure.

You can ask for a post track day inspection to be done. Someone said it costs around £75. That will reset your warranty as such. And give you some peace of mind. The other option is to have the 6k service done a little earlier by the person you are buying it from.

Aside: As far as i'm aware all the cars still have Launch Control - just a more sympathetic version AKA LC2.

You only need worry about LC if the car is a Japanese Domestic Market 'JDM' car or an import of an 08 car from the US.

Euro cars have a lower impact LC still.

Then it's the usual stuff; alloys, front splitter etc

Also be aware of spec differences re kit
