Hello There,

Next week i am going look a GTS on a J Plate (im only a poor university student so the GTR is a few years away!), im unfamiliar with skylines so is their anything in particular i should look out for, are their many sheds about?

Also can you give me an idea of running costs and parts on these. I currently drive a MK3 supra turbo so any comparrison you could give me would be good.

Any advice would be much appreciated


Cheers

James

If you haven't already, then take a look at http://www.gtrowner.com/buying.html . Although it is aimed at the R33 GTR, some of the information will no doubt be applicable to the GTS aswell.

Do you have a Saphire Cosworth and a Supe or one or the other?

Welcome

Hi james,

Welcome to the world of the Skyline. You may wish to check out the following site which is aimed specifically at the GTS.

SHEDS??

Look in yellow pages under "Garden Centres"

We'll forgive your poor choice of words, since you are new to the site. However, the forfeit is that you have to buy everybody a drink. Mine's a double!!

hehe :D

If it's an import, which it's most likely to be, check for rust on the underbody as Japanese cars are not rust-proofed to the same standards (no salt on their roads) as euorpean cars. Unless the owner has had some undersealing done or oil/wax every few years it's not going to be a pretty sight.
