So I have been looking at buying a Nissan GT-R for some time now and one has popped up on eBay that I could be really interested in.

Last time I purchased a car through eBay, I was lied to and the car was just a bag of nails. I know about cars but I am by no means a mechanic or someone how is skilled within that area.

The car looks very clean, 09 plate, 30,000 miles, serviced every 6 months, stage 4.25 and various other upgrades.

I am just worried that I am going to get stung again.

Any advice?

I was thinking if I do buy it taking it to a reputable company like Litchfield so they could check the car over whilst I'm away on holiday or purchasing a warranty online for the car. That said I don't know how much would be covered under the warranty with it having modifications.

Any help would be great.

Thank you

Jacob

Give the guy a call and ask who has done the work to the car and then call the tuner for information on it.

Has it been serviced every 6 or 12 months as it dosent actually state that?

I have just spoken to Kaizer Motorsports who have said if the seller is willing to we could meet there so they could a full inspection for me.

I think that would definitely give me some peace of mind.

So I have asked the seller what he thinks.

Inspection is a great idea, mine was serviced and inspected at Litchfield before I bought it just for a little extra piece of mind.

The car has been serviced every 6 months.

Speaking to the owner he has had work done with https://www.customizebodyshop.co.uk and ACspeedtech : Power and chassis performance solutions

I have emailed them both but neither have got back to me.

The engine being forged gears 1 and 4, that is not something I have come across before when looking at the GT-R's is that a common upgrade or could that show there has been issues?
Good its been serviced every 6 months and Acspeedtech have looked after it. Not heard of some gears being forged before, Charles Charlie maybe able to advise in that if you pm him?

If possible do the inspection and have a walkthrough of the car.
When I bought mine we went through the car at the shop that had done all work on it for the past 4 years. Gave me an opportunity to get a feel for the shop as well which was great.
