Hi fella's,

Saturday I made the mistake of popping to motorline in Tonbridge Wells whilst out for a hoon. Once there I fell in love with the R35 and can't stop thinking about how I'm going to get one!

Now I know my current pride and joy would normally get a bad reaction from you guys, 996 Turbo. But please don't have me down as an arse, lol. I had a noble for 3.5 years and loved it. However, I looked after it that much that i would never take it out in bad weather. I know very sad:eek: I went for the Porker as it was fairly quick, reliable and could be driven a lot more often with no worries, as a few Euro runs have proven.

I would have loved to have got an R35 but I never thought it would be obtainable at the mo. I have always bought cars with my own money or got some funding through Personal Loans. After 6 months of owning the Porker I've stumbled across your site and found the finance thread. Bloody hell why didn't I ever look at PCP before hand, lol.

After spending about an hour at Nissan and chatting about the R35 I can't get it out of my head. I'm now thinking of selling up, paying the loan off and jumping into a new Premium edition. Only thing is i've got to convince the other half. Any ideas, lol.

Anyway, just wanted to say that reading the forum has defo convinced me to get one, so thanks for making me miserable, lol.

Fingers crossed on convincing the misses ;)

Jim

It's easy to convince.
  1. it has bags of boot space, so ideal for shopping :)o) or those nice long romantic weekends away :)blahblah:)
  2. it is a 2+2 so its entirely practical
  3. it has run flate tyres so no fear about what happens if she gets a puncture
  4. it's easy to drive in auto mode
  5. it's fun to drive in manual mode
  6. it has a huge hard disc for all her fave music
  7. and they do it in red!

and finally (if you dare!)

8. Being a 2+2, it's the perfect transport if you're thinking about starting a family!

I tried that and divorce was an option..

Still the GT-R is cheaper alternative :clap:

Im hoping she comes round to the idea, if funds allow she wont have a choice.

That's the main reason I didn't book a test drive yet. I knew that was I had driven it I would have to get one ASAP or be for ever gutted. At the mo i still have that distance to keep me sane :runaway:

My wife likes my GTR way better than she did the 911. Great for the school run, shopping space in the boot, trips away.

Job done!!

'After spending about an hour at Nissan and chatting about the R35 I can't get it out of my head'

Your in a safe place here :thumbsup: Buying a car is never really a financial thought it's all emotional - you will have pangs of 'It's stupid to spend so much money, then loose it etc' but hey drive it, enjoy it and all those thoughts will go away !

But until you own one you will still be looking for one on the road, and wondering . . . .

Fuggles has it spot on for the 'Wife' reasons...

Once you won one (You know you will) leave this forum immediately ... otherwise it's the light kit, then a downpipe .. oh then it's discounted accessport to tempt you Aarrrgh! :D

Well fella's, I approached the subject tonight whilst out with family (Read other boy's) for back up. Anyway the short story is I've been given the go a head, wahooooo:runaway:

Now just need to work out how much it will be to settle my loans and get quotes for pcp :thumbsup: Also need to work out how much i'll get for my motor.

I think I will have a deposit of around 9-10k. Do any of you think I could get the monthly payments down to around £550-600 with that deposit over 48mths?

I have seen the finance thread but need time to have a sit down and go through it all.

Hi Jim
definetley do-able on those figures, I was orginally qouted £11000 deposit and £600 per month over 36 months on a Black Edition @ pre-order price but chose to finance with alternative option in the end.
