I am now looking to sell my R33 GTR V-spec, due to a new job and doing near 300 miles a week, this is my daily drive and has never been on the track or up the quarter mile. (not since being in the UK anyway)

She has currently covered 47k

Imported by Ben at GT-Culture 14 moths ago, I am the first UK owner. 40k when imported.

I have just had her MOT'd and the front splitter re-sprayed and a few stone chips taken out of the front bumper.
I have had her oil changed every 2k with a visit to Abbey last year (42k service)

She was dyno'd and mapped at Abbey, running 368 at the wheels (438 at the fly)

There is now not a mark, blemish on the body work and the interior is also spotless. Fully undersealed when I picked her up. Not a spot of rust anywhere.

Upgraded bits:

Apexi N1 full exhaust system (de-cat, standard cat pipe which has been hollowed out)
Arc Radiator
Arc Intercooler
Brembo F50 calipers with uprated cross drilled discs and pads.
Billion variable fan controler
Blitz A pillar boost guage
Blitz boost controller
Blitz turbo timer
Enkei light weight super strong alloys finished in pearl white (Two new bridgestones)
Field E-TS torque split controller
HKS Induction
HKS hard pipe kit
HKS three guage dash set (aircon has been reloacted to the clove box)
HKS oil cooler and oil catch tank

Momo stearing wheel
Nismo adjustable camber arms
Nismo large anti roll bars
Nismo GTR carbon spoiler inserts
Nismo clear side repeaters
Nismo rear bumper skirts

Ohlin fully adjustable 16 setting shocks
OS Giken twin plate clutch with light fly
Trust gear lever

Cat 1 remote alarm/immobiliser
Full respray in Bayside Blue. The pictures do not do the paint justice.

Bad bits:

The clutch does need new plates. The clutch has been dragging for some time, but I have got use to it now. Just need to put it into neutral, when pulling up at the traffic lights. It has only slipped once, a few weeks ago in fourth at low revs, hight boost. It has not done it since. Rising sun performance quoted me £600 all in. (they are also the OS Giken UK specialists)

I have recently had the rear shocks stripped and re gassed and the top mounts replaced, but there is still a rattling sound coming from them, I have been told by a few people "they do that" ????. Turn the music up, solves
the issue :)

I am looking for £14,400 ono

Also oil pressure is good. between 4.5 and 6 bar when cold, holds a constant 2.3 or so bar when warmed up.

New front tyres, recent front discs and pads.

Looks beautiful and pulls like a train !

Got my facts wrong about the oil pressure.

6 bar when cold
between 3.5 and 5 when warm (normally around 4)
2.3 when idle

She is loving this cold weather at the mo, I am not !

The colour does suit them, not many around in this colour either. Which is the reason why I bought it.

I will move a little on the price.

There does not seem to be much interest in cars at the mo, looking on the evo forum and here, there are some really nice cars going for good prices and there is no interest, people are ending up ebay'ing them? Time of year I guess?

What evo have you got ? I was thinking about getting another evo, they are a little better on fuel (not much though) and servicing has slightly longer intervals. Do really need something cheaper to run, due to the miles I am doing.

Really fancy a 4.5 Cerbera, but that would just be stupid to run 250-300 miles a week ! Plus it would spend longer in the garage than on the road

1.9 TDI it is then :D

I'm running a Evo IV at mo, pretty standard although I had big plans for her until I was 'turned' to Skylines and have restrained myself from splashing out (mind I do have loads of parts waiting to go on her).

I love my Evo, it's just when I get an idea into my head... That's it!:smokin: Also I seem to have had my 'tastes' moved away from Rallying to the Street-Racing style of cars (Skylines, Supras, RX7s etc). Hence my hunt!

Good luck with finding a skyline. I have had a evo vi and a few scooby's and the logical step for me was a skyline. It is a completely different animal, but I love the skyline as much if not more than my evo vi.

The power delivery is completely different, evo's start to run out of steam around 6-7k where as the skyline keeps pulling strong all the way to the 8.2k red line. because of the driving position you feel like your in a super car (sat low down) Because my camber has been adjusted, you never ever get under steer, it is impossible, turn in too tight and it is the back that steps out the front just will not let go, which is something the scooby espically, suffered from (understeer). I have always wanted to track her, but for one reason or another I have not got around to it. I know on the road i am not getting any where near its potential. It will be a shame to sell her without fully knowing her potential.

I had a WRX before the Evo and I did manage to loose traction only once with that. As of yet I have never done it with the Evo and I push her hard (touch wood).

I have been reading into the suspension adjustments for the skylines, for different styles of driving / drifting. I'd be lying if i said the attraction of getting the back out and holding it there (yeah like I'm good enough to do that), pulls me towards the skyline, as the Evo just won't let go. Although I like the fact the Evo can hold massive amounts of speed into corners as it's like when I'm out on my Ductai, corner speed rules! :thumbsup:

Will be putting the Evo up for sale this week and putting her back to standard, hopefully with all the bits I will have to sell off her and the price of the car, will pull me close to a good R33 GTR price...

My old evo use to be great, (idiot proof) go into a bend a bit to fast, take your foot of the gas, the back end will step out and then plant it again, no opposite lock needed, it always pulled me through to the other side. Do that in my skyline and your dead a few seconds later. I never tried to drift the evo, but to be honest I think the computers will try to stop it, you can drift for a second or so, until it sorts itself out.

I think you treat a skyline with a bit more respect, as it is basically a rear wheel drive car most of the time. I guess on a track a good driver can potentially go through bends quicker in a skyline, but im not that good enough driver to confirm that.

I respect my Evo a hell of a lot to be honest. It's took me a while before I started to 'play' so to speak.

I just think to mysefl "I can't afford to claime if I crash and I defo can't afford to repair", keeps me on the straight and narrow.;)

Also my Dad keeps reminding me! He's a copper so... He's seen results of such things. More so when it comes to my motorbikes...

It took me a while before i put my foot down through bends.
you need to pick the right roads at the right time to have some fun.

I think unless your mental or the road conditions are not ideal, you will loose your bottle before the car gives up.
