Well I appear to be in the rather fortunate position of collecting another GT-R tomorrow but a dilemma ensues. Do I go full 'Deano' and start photographing my every move from first awakening (or possibly right now sat on settee with laptop) or just slip a little picture up later.................?

Dean I'd probably respect your comments with a priority as you've been there done that! ;)

Whoooop whoooop roll on the 5am start to get to SVM.

Suppose I'll be selling a Silver 09 stage 4.25 in a little while ;)

I would certainly be interested in if you opt for breakfast before you leave or en route to save time / maximise lie in.

I would also be interested in if you asked them to source it for you or if they have a cars for sale page I am not aware of...?

Specs and pics please (both the trip and the car)

Have fun
Mart

Black's a hard colour to keep clean mate, especially when you're not a polisher like me :chuckle: and you :p

Hopefully it won't be still long enough for the dust to settle!
Will be mixing in a wee bit of ethanol for first runs just to pep it up a bit.

Sounds interesting.
Why the change of car if you already have one?

Pm me details of the one you might be selling.

Been awake for a while now! Just realised that I don't know how to upload photo's direct from phone to here. Well i think they'd have to go to my Dropbox account and that'd eat up my data. Dean help!!!!
Unless i use SVM's wife. Dammit spellchecker - wifi.

Must get more sleep!

It'll be worth the wait! Unless you can maybe put it onto Facebook if you have an account and link? I was like this when I got my E93 M3 last year.

So, which one will be coming across Europe with us?

This one....................................




Sorry about the lack of pics but I had camera issues, well a faulty micro SD, so only had the one above.
Got through a couple of tanks of fuel and several tens of litres of Ethanol - happy days
Big thanks to SVM for the work they so swiftly performed even when things (beyond their control) were going a wee bit awry.

Some of you will be quite familiar with this car.................

Cheers Guys.

The car already has quite an extensive spec list to go with a 1000hp build but I need to add a few touches.

The 2009 box had 'expiered' so a 2012 model (with only around 4k miles on it) was sourced by the 'Crew that Do' that was then beefed up with............

Albins 1-6 gearset & all the relevant clips etc.


Then it needs some stopping power as it'll be getting tracked...........

Alcon Big Brake setup

Then a set of Eibach ARB's front & back were added to complement their lowering Springs.

Also a tracker was fitted whilst at SVM.

A few other touches will be done to personalise it a little further as time goes by :smokin:
