So after a very long time after selling my Civic EG6 SIR2 and full turbo kit consisting of a Garrett GT3076R etc, I'm finally going to be collecting my dream GTR on the weekend.

The first time I saw a R33 GTR was when I was 10, it was a clean silver one parked up with the Nismo decals on the bonnet. I stood still looking at the car for a while as you do and thought one day I will have one.

I found a clean silver 1996 R33 GTR V-Spec, with a recent engine rebuild by Ron at RK Tuning . I will be taking the car over to MGT Racing to be checked over just to make sure all is well, MGT are local to me which is a bonus :cool:

Anyone recommend a place where I can get a tracker fitted?

Can't wait to pick it up!:smokin::D

Well done buddy you will love it. Particularly the amount of attention you get. Not sure how outrageous your civic was, but be prepared to talk to a lot of people you don't know, particularly in petrol stations.

Enjoy and resist the temptation to thrash the life out of it everywhere you go. Atleast for the first week anyway :)

Excellent enjoy, I recommend getting a tracker go on their website and they will organise fitting and will come out to you as long as you have dry area if weather is bad:thumbsup:

have to agree about the bonnet,i don't mind the carbon but i think they should be colour coded to the car,(my opinion of course)thats a very clean looking gtr,just take it steady with all this bad weather,and enjoy.

I prefer the original bonnet anyway, on the plus side its the aluminuim one so are the front wings and rear boot :).

Thanks Kadir, it's been a long wait but when the right car came up for sale I knew it was the one to go for! It's got a very good engine spec which i'm happy about too :D

Haha lol I already have plans for it! I don't know if i like the front carbon lip, nismo 400r sideskirts or the nismo400r rear bumper. So may be offering them for swaps with the standard GTR ones in the same colour, Its got a good spec for the engine, MGT will be taking care of it in future that's for sure!
