Sounds like a bit of a story. I've had three gtr's and don't recall factory dents.

They probably want the car paid for and gone.

If it's factory ask them to put it in writing and await there answer.

Its above the door on the roof rail, i cant recall seeing any dents on any other GTRs that i have seen. The Guy at west way say its a sway arm or something like that.

Go in there there and ask him to close his eyes and stick his tongue out. Then get your office stapler out and staple the end of the lying ****ers tongue. When he's finished yelping, tell him that should teach him a lesson about bullshitting.

Seriously, is there no end to what car salesmen will do and say to close a deal?

What a tosser.

I'm paying 60k for a car and it has a dent and also bubbles of rust under the wing mirror. Am I actually insane?? Its a 15 plate with 6000 miles on it.

Wouldn't be hard to get a dent out. Tell him you'd want both the dent and rust sorted before buying or you'd happily walk away

Its a low mileage car and never been launched or abused but the rust is concerning and the dent in such a new car.

I definitely wouldn't be lifting it until sorted to be honest. Saying you'll happily honour the deal once sorted is more then fair in my eyes

That's what I'm thinking as well, I want the car only because of its low mileage and it's in black and it has warranty and also I can extend the warranty with them.

Mate, you need to take a breath and check yourself. You're talking about buying a £60k car with a dent and rust.... Are you mental? Not saying the car isn't worth having, but like the other posters have said you need it fixed before you buy it.

I know what happens in a man's brain. You just want to get in the beauty and rag it off into the sunset, but it really is worth taking your time to get it done right.

Also, don't bank on Nissan providing a great warranty. From what I hear they'll try and dodge a payout if the opportunity presented. You can even buy private and have a warranty added by Autotorque or Litchfield. Know who I'd trust more but that's just me...

60K for a car that isn't perfect...... are you crackers? Get them to sort it and then go pick it up, can you really trust a dealer to sort it our retrospectively when they feed you lines like "All GT-R's have a dent there" what a prick, should give him a slap just for that comment!

In fact I probably insist on dealing with a different sales person, probably the most junior in the office so the youngen got the commission for the sale, that'll bloody teach him!!
