I currently have the budget to buy an R34 GT-R. However, it is pretty much limited. So,my current choice is to buy a 1999 or 2000 GT-R of high mileage ( about 3.5 - 4 mil yen right? ) and have the extras to do a full engine rebuild OR to buy a low-mid mileage gt-r or probably v-spec. btw, I'm currently is australia. It has been bogging in my mind for a while. If it were u guys who have that budget, what would u guys go for? I'm gonna mod it to about 500-600hp slowly with my limited budgets. And no, I don't think i could fork out for an engine rebuild anytime after i buy the gt-r..well,because i don't control the finance..(my dad buys it for me)..gimme reasons please..i might be able to stretch the budget for a v-spec though but u guys think it would be worth it or the normal gt-r makes no difference?? v-spec 2 is out of budget though...i'm planning to get the gt-r from japan if it is for the high-mileage ones...please help me make my decision..

bl**dy hell mate, how much is your insurance gonna be? :eek: lol
you have done insurance quotes havent you?
in england the insurance is really high.

I would suggest you buy something smalled first, the GTR is really viscious, like a supra and if you crash its not a exspensive motor.

Yeah I know the insurance would be pretty expensive but I'll find a way to get it insured for sure :) I've been driving a Mitsubishi Airtrek Turbo (sold already because i came to aus ) and am currently driving my brothers evo around so i think a stock gt-r should be ok for me ? I know lots of young kids (thats what u guys call us) get these cars and just go crazy on the road and end up hitting a tree or smt.. but i treat my cars with respect and i only play with my car in a safe environment until i get used to the car.. of course when i own a gt-r i'll go for defensive driving course and stuff lidat..and if i crash the gt-r.. i'll never get another 1 again.. I've always followed the speed limits n stuff.. :) I ain't a hoon:chuckle: opinions pls.. :popcorn:

i dont know about austrailia but its cheap to buy and import from japan but after the import costs and SVA test will knock a vspec up to £30,000, use google to convert that into what ever your currency is.

a 34GTR is the best looking and lovley car to own, you wont regret buying it.
Dad agreed to buy it for ya but is he paying for insurance or you?

Plus a skyline needs a good service very often and are exspensive when they go wrong and exspensive to modd.
If you ok with all that then go buy it!

I currently have the budget
Daddy, currently has the budget ;)

i think a nice 200sx is a good car to first start out with now. do a lot of trackdays so you can get used to serious car action, and then when your 20 let daddy buy you a skyline.

every 3000miles if you really wanna look after it, i'd say thats about 5000km
be careful, the 4wheel drive on the GTR's makes an unpredictable car when learning
