You will need 55-60k for an 11 plate. 35-40 will secure you an 09/59 plate.I'd definitely have a warranty, I'm thinking I'd like a MY11 too, but like I said, only if the price drops. I'll have a couple of pay rises and prob a promotion between now and purchasing, so money should be even less of an issue, but still, i wouldn't want to pay more than £35-40k. Fingers crossed.
oh, and are there any guys in Milton would let me have a closer look or maybe take me for a drive? (passenger)
I think if you take it easy you can afford it. No track days saves loads of money. You're gonna be driving hard even if you tell yourself you won't, it's a GTR!
But just moderate it and you will be fine.
