Firstly a HUGE thank you to Gareth @ Newera for getting my car prepared so fast and for the daily updates !

Top man ! :bowdown1:

Secondly another HUGE thanks to Miguel @ Newera for finding me such a beauty, yep you were right mate, she really is MINT ! My jaw hit the floor when I first saw her....looks almost brand new ! Am VERY, VERY HAPPY :) :clap:

Had a nice journey home in the pouring rain, she's filthy now though, looking forward to my day off on Friday so I clean her up and take some proper pics.

Sooooooooooo much nicer to drive then my 2+Ton Lexus tank :chuckle:

Stopped in to see Mark @ Abbey and booked the old girl in for a dyno session next saturday.

Am itching to take it out for another spin now....hehehe

Cheers for popping over...like you needed any encouragement to take it for a spin. Yeah, that is one fantastic looking car...amazing condition...the previous owner has clearly pampered it. I doubt you'll see another R32 in as 'near new' condition andy time soon (expect maybe in nissan's museum....)

And you've got the fun when it's properly mapped and running the full 1bar :)

Thanks, Giles, you have that Skyline smile now!
....It'll probably be on your face for a long time, bud.

Enjoy!! :D :D

Yep still got that Skyline smile today, sitting at my desk grinning like a fool :)

Was suprised how nice she was to drive in heavy traffic actually, I thought the HKS clutch would be a bit of a mission stop/starting all the time but it's not too bad.

I was still worried, even as I was sitting on the train going to pick it up yesterday whether I'd made the right choice going for the R32 instead of an R33 (was originally looking for an R33) but what can I say, I'm soooooo pleased with her, wouldnt change her for anything....well maybe a mint R34 NUR :)

Yep I'll defo be bringing it along to some meets soon (once she's had a good clean & polish) be nice to finally meet everyone...

Now I've just got to resist the urge to spend obscene amounts of money on more shiny things under the bonnet !!!

Congratulations, :) that does look like one nice R32 you have there.

But.........

There's no chance you'll be able to resist.:chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Once you have the smile, your hooked!:smokin:

Hmm, knowing G this indeed a slippery slope. If I remember correctly he rung me up to let me know he had finally made his mind up and mailed Miguel to say he would have it. Oh dear I said, when does the spending start? I wasn't amazed to hear that between mailing Miguel and ringing me he'd already managed to start!
Could be bad today, he's on a supercar driving thing. Let's hope nothing he drives has a big single turbo, too many shiny parts or anything else wallet crippling...
