Ok chaps. I'm new here. But I would like your advice.

I know of the existence of a Skyline GTS, auto, 4wd, 2.5 turbo for 4k. The reason it's so cheap is that it's a L reg, done 81k miles, and the paintwork and front bumper is in serious need of some TLC.

I would like to know what you guys think it might be worth if I spent some time and money on it getting the bodywork and bumper sorted out, and any other ninor niggles that might be present.

To be honest if you are looking circa £6500 then I would get a GTR32. I think you could pick up a decent one for that money and save yourself the headaches. And it would be faster;)

Ok, 6.5k for a R32 GT-R is unrealistic...but what's the one that I'm on about worth if in good nick?!

Sorry, not on the ball there at all:) Please forgive me I have had a hard day...

Looking on Autotrader you can pick up a high miler for around £7k although they are manuals. The only problem I have noticed with autotrader is that they have a really big price range for skylines at the moment. I was comparing mine the other day to get an idea of what it was worth and according to cars for sale there it could be worth anything from £8k to £12.5k.

I would think £7k is a reasonable price, you may even get more.

The question is if you put the work in do you want to get rid of it;)

I'd want to get rid of it, to make a little profit on it, and then buy a manual !! :)

Can't stand the idea of having a decent sports car with an automatic gearbox!!

too right:)

Does depend on the car, my uncle had a BMW 540i a while ago and that had a fantastic auto box, very responsive to the boot.
