I suppose if you get one of the very first you may be able to sell for a profit - Not sure my brain could stand waiting 12 months for it to turn up and then flogging it off straightaway though...

Hockey-boy - That's what I've heard as well, I wonder though how many orders to dealers who won't be selected to sell the car?

I did hear three dealerships ony in the UK - Middlehurst will obviously be one, any ideas on the others?

If the rumours are true that it's 300 cars a year in the UK, they must be close to that number of orders already?

Who decides who gets them I wonder.....

The person that I am getting it from is in the UK and a friend of his order over 15 of them and I am getting one. He is selling them surprisingly at the exact same price instead of bumping the price up to fatten his wallet...what a nice guy huh? haha. From what he tells me he can have it shipped straight from Japan to the US...so if everything goes right...I will have the first and only "R35" GT-R in the US. Which won't be the first time in my case lol

No it will be right hand drive that is the main reason why I am getting it straight from Japan. Since the car is coming to the US in the Summer of 2008 those will be left hand drive...I, myself want to be a different as possible. You won't know much about it but a seeing a JDM Z, V35, NSX etc etc will get way more head turns than the LHD US models because they come straight from the country they were made in. I want keep it as "JDM" as possible besides I want to have it before everyone else!

If only we had nice guys like that here:rolleyes:

Seen a trader doing them for almost 55k, yet its 32k in Japan. after vat/duty etc, thats still a best part of 14k or so profit.

import gtr

cost depends on spec, however, lets base it on the premium edition, be mindful of exchange rate variations

car cost 37k ish
import duty 31/2k ish
value added tax(dont ask me where the value in a tax is?) 7k ish

that totals £47,500

add to that the cost of shipping,insurance,prep for uk etc,anything less than 55k is good,at the end of the day all businesses have to make a profit, if they don't they would not do it!
lets assume that they do sell for 55k, thats a profit of less than 10%, i think thats a poor return, i would not stump up 50k with the prospect of making 5k, there are better places to invest

if people think they are being ripped off, then dont use a dealer, buy one yourself and shut up moaning:blahblah:

Since I am the only one in US thats getting a JDM version...why the heck is mine $90,000USD it is the black edition and not the $70,000 premium???? mine is black with black interior. Ill post up some pics later of my GT-R :)

90g not bad cosidering the import cost and getting it legal.

$72,000+/- USD for the base price when she comes out. I should be getting her as soon as I get out of college, still debating on which one though.

**Note**if your getting one better preorder now. Only a 1000 a month, for 6 or so years are goin to be made, thats the rumor I got out of it.
