Hello

I registered quite some time ago, knowing there would come a day when I could afford a GTR. Im very close to that day and know looking at used cars. Ive been an owner and member of v6clio.net for a number of years and still plan on keeping the little french vee as truth be told, for all her flaws, she's a cracking little car. I have a budget of 40k and am looking for a lowish miles 2010 UK car.

Ive searched around but can't seem to find a buyers/newbie guide, so I apologise in advance, but could you guys help me out with a list of things to check

Premium/Black edition...which one to go for?
Apart from Disc cracks, Tyre wear, what other visible checks should I be doing?
Is there something to do with letters in the VIN to check?

Any newbie advice would be massively appreciated

Many thanks

Hi and Welcome:wavey:

40k should get you a decent 10 or very late 59 car with low mileage

Have replied inline to ya questions

Premium/Black edition...which one to go for?

Black has the red seat band and red door pulls together with having a black headlining... Premium has grey seats and door pulls and white headlining has Personal choice, however I went for a Black edition as Im not lover of white headlining's!

Apart from Disc cracks, Tyre wear, what other visible checks should I be doing?

Check the service book and ensure its been serviced as per the schedule by either NHPC or a reputable outlet such as Litchfield, SVM or Kaizer to name a few. Check the notorious bell housing "rattle" when in natural. Common on lots of GTRs and mine was like a rattling plate. Good bartering option with this I would ask how the car has been driven by the owner, has it had any upgrades such as gearbox s/w Y pipe Gearbox Magnet & Upgrade.....Check and see if you can get previous owners details....Always good to try and contact them. Also suggest buying an ex forum members car...Lots for sale on here

HTH

Cheers
