r35 gtr purchase -help please


I have seen a GTR 2015 plate with 42k miles. Price of it is quite cheap for what it is as it is listed as 47k .

it has litchfield 4.25 upgrade , carbon body, carbon spoiler , body kit etc .

what is suspecious to me is the price as it seems cheap then no history or service book. Guy says I can verify the service history with litchfield and kreamcar.

would you buy or walk away ?
Car pulls like tank, it had vibration when breaking so either pads, alloy or disc warped. then it had a sound which the guy mentioned is bell housing sound which is normal on gtr.


Can Nissan change the millage and ensure it has not been tampered with and do body inspection to let me know if it was damaged?

If a car is written off or about to be made cat c which is now known as cat d or n , then would the insurance do that regardless or can the guy take it away and fix it without letting insurance know?

Have you spoken to litchfield? I'd try them and see what they have to say about the car.
From a insurance point of view I'm sure if it had been in a accident and the insurance had any knowledge of it and was to be classed as a cat d or n then regardless of the owner that it was it would be.
Only it was crashed and insurance never got involved.
Think I'd ask for invoices for the work and also phone Nissan to check for some history.
With it been a GTR I'd ask the guys on GTR.co.uk as I'm sure they'd be willing to shed some light on it and might even know the car.

Hope it works out for you either way.
