I bought one of their stage T motors a few years ago. God damn flux capacitor went the very same week. Be sure, whatever stage you get, it's actually from 2009. Mine was time shifted, let alone implorted. The speedo was in milliseconds. FFS

Good lucky :tard:

Don't know anything about the company but I know that 09 white one has been up for a LONG time, details on it are thin so doesn't bode well but who knows.

Lol Wingedbeast you on the sauce tonight?

Thanks for the reply. I did a hpi check just now. There has been some discrepancies with the mileage recorded on the mot.
They did report this to me when I called to ask if I could go view on Tuesdays

Something to do with the dashboard led goes? Whole unit was replaced and new dashboard reading was not set to what it was originally?? Anyone can shed some light into this ? Would this affect the sales of the car in the future?

I would get a car with a clear history. People are looking for paperwork to tally up. It will cause you a headache long term.

I do not know that company but for future resale Litchfield and Middlehurst are both well known. There are many GTRs available get the best one that your budget allows.

Did you ask for the reg? Looks like a trade plate on the website. What's the mileage they are claiming it says and what should the real mileage be?

I'd be tempted to agree there's bound to be much better options out there. Must be why it's been up for so long then

I've been to their showroom and they had afew gtrs at the time, including the one with the liberty walk body kit. I think that has since been sold. They had some high ends cars. Ferrari, lamborghini, range rovers and afew m4s at the time. As i don't want to buy on finance, I didn't buy anything from there as I need to save up for a while before I can buy one cash! They were very pleasant and professional and I wasn't pressured to buy anything from them. Once I have saved enough will definitely be looking to see if they have any in stock at the time.

That does happen, it's not uncommon to have a new dash cluster, but the mileage reading should be verifiable through the service book, and the mileage at swap over should be recorded in the book.

The car looks very tidy in the photo's (as much as you can tell from a photo) and if it's got good brake discs and tyres, fsh, it's very well priced.

The advert puts me off a bit because it's full of bullshit as if written by a starry eyed teenager, maybe the apprentice writes their adverts?

there is no service history paper work. They just presented a piece of a4 paper with what looks like produced on excel with the dates of when it was serviced, mileage serviced at and the location. They told me to call middlehurst to verify myself. Surely selling a car that price they could of done that in advance for the customers and got the proof from the garages

They say the paper work has been lost. Manuals are lost

Totally. I came across that car myself and after reading the advert I swiftly moved on.
certainly right there. I was served by a young lad who states he sometimes take the garage super cars and drag race against his mates super cars to compare the power

I went to view this car and was full of Electrical gremlins, bits missing and a flat tyre. Front bumper was misaligned and a cigarette burn on the seat.
i was also shown a print out of service and told to buy a book and go get it stamped...!
WTF

Walk away time :)

There are more and more abused, returned to stock, one careful lady owner cars turning up all the time. If it doesn't feel right, it's wrong. :wavey:

Why do I always think of more to say when I've already posted. :confused:

I should say, if you buy from Litchfield's, you can be sure the car is sound, and that the warranty will be honoured. Primarily because Litchfield's work on these cars day in, day out, and on weekends. If you buy from a used car dealer, you can't be as sure because they don't fix cars, they flog em.

Mine has no history, and will never be for sale. I will crush it when I've had enough, or go blind. She is very well looked after, so Nissan can suck my dick :)

Besides, each and every time those nobheads touched my car, it was given back to me in slightly worse condition. And they think they're getting away with it. Not with me. She's getting better, since I've taken control.

Do they still remove the front splitter to change the oil? Why? There's no need. There never was. But in taking mine off, and over tightening the bolts, they twisted through one of the spring clip retaining tangs. Butt holes! :chuckle:

They destroy cars for a living. So you have to buy another one. :rolleyes:
