I am looking to buy a Skyline, but I am lost with all the various models and marques. I understand that there are R32,33,34 but they all seem to have a hundred variations! Please could someone post a basic list of them with the engines fitted.
V spec R32's are very rare (and V spec 2's even rarer). They fetch very high prices in Japan now, there was one I saw online at a similar price to a year old R34 Madness!
Anyway stock R32 GTRs are excellent value if imported directly - especially if you are looking for goodies. Often the prices are lower the cost of building the engine to that spec. Might be worth speaking to 'Dirk Diggler' or 'Sports-Imports' on this site as I believe they have both recently sourced 500+bhp R32's.
I have driven, worked on, tuned etc... loads of skylines. And in my opinion if you are going to buy one it might aswell be the proper article, ie a GT-R. There is no need to get on the defensive, I never said there was anything wrong with others, just that they aren't as good.
