Pictures then c'mon I know you bought it.I have spent the last couple of weeks, and several sheets of paper, writing the pros and cons of buying a MY21 TE. Also the pros and cons of not buying one. Interestingly the pros of one arent always the same as the cons of the other, and vice versa.
I'm not going to list all that here as it will vary by each persons circumstances.
What I will pass on is one of the cons of not buying that kept coming up was that I'd regret it if I didnt take this opportunity...
Its pretty much a Nismo with 30 less bhp and without the nice dials and steering wheel. A mild tune gets you way above 600 bhp and you don't have to pay the ludicrous premium. Prices for the TE are on the rise.Continuing the TE discussion this TE for sale at Litchfields looks like good value, even has the Nismo seats:
An interesting list of differences to the standard car that I haven't seen listed before:
It's only about 12k more than a standard MY19 car. If it was later in the year I could have been tempted.
- Wider front track
- Wider front wings
- Seam welded and reinforced chassis
- Larger hubs and wheel studs
- Nismo front suspension arms
- Nismo/Bilstein damptronic suspension
- Hollow upgraded anti roll bars
- Lightweight and wider Nismo forged alloy wheels (-2.5kg each)
The track edition is a serious bit of kit. With a 4.25 tune and a Russ Fellows exhaust it sounds like thunder and is mighty on track.The te never really got recognition for what it is. I think long term they will show it. If your somebody who does’nt keep a car a long time then I would’nt bother.
I think I agree, they look poor value but I have never seen them in person. Originally, I would have gone for them if ordering a TE, now I am thinking the money is better going to carbon brakes and carbon boot/spoiler.For the money those seats are really underwhelming. Can get far nicer from Sparco and Cobra; the latter could likely stitch in the GTR logo too.
