Hi Guys

Fantastic car and can only be described as superb all round. The car has just come back from a very reputable bodyshop today after having the front bumper and bonnet repainted to remove all stonechips that these cars are notoriously known for.

Only 17,000 miles on the clock with Nissan HPC Service history + Specialist - Kaiser/Litchfields.

The car is a Litchfields Stage 4 + Downpipes and is an absolute Monster of a car. I would expect that the car is in or around 620 bhp with similar torque but I have not had it Dyno'd. The car is very very quick and drives superb.

The car was first registered in March 2011 and is the Premium Edition with Recaro Sports Seats.

As standard, the spec boasts Electric Heated Seats, Sat Nav, etc.

The Stage 4 Litchfields spec can be found on their Website - along with what it costs. This is my second GTR which which is Stage 4 power - I genuinely believe that this is the best value package and really is the best upgrade for these cars without going into extreme builds and affecting the everyday driveablity of these cars.

I have left the registration of the car in the images - so please feel free to carry out your own checks with Litchfields/Sly - Kaiser/Nissan etc.

Needless to say, the car drives absolutely spot on. The washer jet covers have been missing for sometime now - however Sly has ordered them for me and the new ones will be with me anyday now. :)

Apart from any superficial minor blemishes/chips that can occur with usage, the car really is in fantastic condition.

This car recently threw up the 4WD light which I wrote about on the forum. The car was driving absolutely perfect but the 4WD light was permanently on. The car was sent to Kaiser/Litchfields for investigation and the problem turned out to be a broken 4WD Shaft inside the gearbox. Needless to say - the gearbox was stripped down, and the shaft was replaced and the 4WD clutchpack rebuilt by Litchfields - At a cost of over £2000! I have the invoice to include with the car. Whilst the car was with Sly - The ECUTEK was upgraded to the latest Version 4 Racerom, with custom maps for 95Ron, 97Ron, 99Ron & 100Ron fuel. This version now boasts Litchfields Traction Control, Rolling Boost etc.

Also - I took this opportunity to add the Dodson Circlip upgrade for future peace of mind.

With all the known/feared issues dealt with, and the replaced parts warrantied by Litchfields for a year - I believe this car will be the best buy throughout the UK.

I am more than happy for any Trial or Inspection - for as long as you need. I work for myself so any genuinely interested parties are welcome to my business premises during the day, or residence in evenings & weekends to carry out any inspection they feel neccessary. The car drives amazing & Looks stunning.

I will be putting on a fresh 12 Month MOT for the new keeper and the car is taxed until the end of October this year.

There really is no real reason for selling. Since I have purchased the RS6, the GTR just doesn't get any use. I am pricing this car extremely well considering the modifications and mileage. I thought I would put it here on the forum first before giving it to a trader to sell for me - but the margins they add sometimes makes me sick!

Looking for £49,500.

Any questions please ask.

Hi
Thanks, so as not to waste any time please let me know what the minimum is you are looking for this car and I will work out whether I can sell MY09 stage 2 and buy yours.

Many thanks

Ian

All PM' replied to.

Car is fully polished now with the front bumper Washer Jets in place (at a cost of £237!!!)

Just to confirm a few points:

The car was last serviced by Sly at Kaizer in March at 15,000 miles.

The back brakes were changed during this service - fronts were inspected and are fine.

The car is currently on runflats all round which will need changing in the near future - I would think they have around 2-3000 miles left in them. If I was going to keep the car - I would be going for MPSS's all round. So for the full asking price - I will treat the car to a Brand New Set of MPSS's all round! :) (or you can have the value of new MPSS's off the asking price if you wish to wear the Runflats for a bit)

To save wasting any ones time - there are 2 points on the car that I would like to mention:

1 - The alloy wheels have a few faint marks on them. No HEAVY KERB damage anywhere, but thought I would mention it.

2 - The drivers side front Headlight does suffer from Condensation. I have dried it out in the past but it came back within a few weeks as we had he rain recently. Currently - it is completely dry and looks perfect - but I am certain in the wet weather it will come back. Not sure if there is a fix for these headlights - or if someone fancies an argument with Nissan to get it replaced? Car only came out of warranty in April.

Other than the above - the car is stunning. Drives and looks fantastic. As mentioned in the original For Sale post - any trial & inspection is most welcome.

PRICE DROP - £48,000 AS IT STANDS! Otherwise the car will be going to a trader who will be listing for around £55k!!!

At £48,000 - this is by far THE BEST BUY throughout the UK!

I am collecting my new car next Saturday - so need make space. :)

Black Edition cars were Pre MY11?

All MY11 cars left the factory as Premium Editions with the option of having Recaro Seats. Some would call MY11 GTR's with Recaro's the 'Recaro Edition.' But I believe that this option was at no extra cost from the factory - so doesn't really make it superior or inferior? I personally prefer the Recaro Sports Seats.

So - 'Black Edition' is only applicable to pre-facelift MY09 & MY10 cars.

I hope that helps. :)

Super thanks for clearing that up. Learning all the time.

This is cheap!
It is ridiculously cheap!

It is only priced as it is as that is what a trader is willing to return me upon sale! I just don't see why someone should buy my car from their forecourt at around £55,000 when I will only see £48,000 back. I'd rather someone get a bargain rather than filling up the dealers wallet!

I have more cars than space at the moment, and picking up my latest toy this weekend. So the GTR will have to go. :(

Is the car still available?

If so, could you let me know if you had the rear parking sensors or camera installed as I cannot see from the photos?

Thanks

Hi Nick,

The car doesnt have the rear parking sensors or reverse camera.

I believe there is a retro-fit camera that can be easily installed for a few hundred pounds.

Thanks

Out of the UK this week, but hopefully back on Friday morning (29th). Can I provisionally arrange to view it Friday afternoon if you've not sold it by then?
