Hello everyone, I'm new to GTRs, in fact I haven't even got one yet I'm picking it up in three weeks time. Just a few questions :), Does the R35 have to be run on super unleaded or could a octane booster be used? Is there any common faults I should look out for, this is a 2009 premium edition with 20k.

Many thanks

Pete

I would run it on super unleaded rather than octane booster.The best super unleaded fuel is either shell v-power or tesco's own super unleaded which is octane 99.

Regarding what to look out for,is brake disc's having slight cracks between the holes,tryes,bellhousing noise,water in headlights.

Im still on a look out for a gtr,these beasts eat brakes and tyres which arent cheap.

O forgot and welcome to the forum

I run mine on Tesco 99, the same as I used to use for my Subarus and S2000. I certainly wouldn't run it on 95 RON!

Whereabouts in the North East are you? I'm in Teesside.

I'm from hartlepool, iv only ever seen one Gtr in the flesh. I was on my way to buy a FQ 400 when I decided against it and go for the gtr.

The only one I've seen (apart from mine!) around these parts is a blue one, which seems to work somewhere near where I work (Seal Sands). I had a couple of STIs before the GTR, but I used to like Evo VIIIs and IXs, too. Not so sure about the Evo X though...

Hi Pete. Welcome to the forum. I'm from South Shields but spend my time between there and work in Northants. I always go for Shell V-Power where I can but have used Esso or BP 97 RON for the odd tank.

Hi Pete, welcome mate hopefully you're going to love it!
Quite a few up here now it seems, hopefully we'll be able to have a catch up in the next few weeks as the conditions improve - Hodge just posted about the prospect of a meet; we've managed to get out a few times and to some of the events which were a blast!

Looks like his thread got shut down by moderators.

I'd be up for something though.

Yes, it's clearly listed.
Well that's massively helpful :GrowUp:

It's Ian (Forum name IMS). I think it's a bit early in the year for him to be organising a meet. I think they normally start about May time IIRC.

I've only been along to one proper north east meet. othertimes have just arranged to go for a bit of a hoon with other members.

It's funny but since I bought my GT-R over 7 months ago I haven't seen a single other example, other than at Nissan HPC, anywhere in the country. I know they're out there somewhere though :chuckle:
