My R32 arrived today and I have to say I am absolutely over the moon with it.
Runs like a dream, is exactly as described and just doesn't feel like it's had much of a hard life at all.
Even the R32 gearbox is sweet as a nut.

As you can see, I'm happy. :)

The pics:















First plans are an all round big brake kit...

The idea is to tweak it but not mess with the looks at all.

That just looks awesome, very jealous now. Gutted I missed out on this by only a few hours. Seriously tempted to blow my budget and order the silver 32 currently on the Newera site after seeing this.

That's a real beauty you've got there and your chief mechanic looks pretty pleased with himself also.

Well done mate, I'll be following your progress with this one.

So understated in that colour. Big brakes and decent suspension and you'll have a blast. When's it going into Ron's? Lol

Thanks guys. :)
I'm as happy as a pig in a big pile of brown stuff here.

Yes, my son keeps saying "Skyline" under his breath while wandering about and doing other things. :chuckle:

So Rich,
The big question is. Its a quarter of the price, does it feel like 75% less car?

Took your time Mook.

Not driven it that much yet and only at road speeds.

But it's clearly more involving and "fun" even if it's slower.

But then I was specifically looking for a car that had the fun factor, without confusing it with the speed factor which a lot of people seem to do.

People tend to think faster is better, or upgrading to a quicker car is better.
But it's not always.
I've gone the other way and love it.

R35 is a seriously impressive car, but I am not really a great fan of paddles or DSGs.
Modern cars isolate you from the driving experience a bit too much.

Oh, and it was LESS than a quarter of the price. ;)

Haven't you heard? Skylines drive themselves ;)

Glad you are happy with it. Look forward to reading your thoughts over the coming months.

That is lovely and a great colour, it takes me back to when I owned mine, even today they're timeless! The thing I love is even if you where blind folded you'd know when you were in a 32 they a unique smell if that makes sense....

There is a couple of cosmetics you should consider if you can track them down that is. A Jun splitter for the front and just a Nismo lip for the rear. Perfect!

Looking forward to what you do with it......
