is that not pretty expensive for that skyline?
never heard of them though mate. Although i had a few bad experiances with car dealers in Glasgow but im sure they all cant be shady.
good luck anyway.

im not totally up to date on prices but ive seen plenty about the 6000 mark, are there not any guys on here selling any? I think Les(turbob12) on here is selling his gtst he lives near sterling and it has full kit nice rims and bayside blue paint is well quick too.I can pm him if you want. And my car is down at Rod Bell's getting sorted at the mo will be there for a wee while but i will pm you next time im going to crail or knock hill and arrange to meet up with you ok mate.

the gts-t does seem a little over priced unless it's got stacks of reciepts and u.k. history.
i would go for the VW BORA!! looks well nice!!
actually that skyline looks remarkably similar to RABENJAQ's car!!
at the end of the day anyone can have a nice looking glitzy website. you need to get down there and look over most of the cars to get an idea of what type of condition the cars they sell are. check warrenties and back up service. stuff like that.
i would like to think my next car ( hopefully a skyline or RX7 ) will be bought from a dealer, but they can dissapear over night!! so there's no solid peace of mind.
just make sure you take a load of common sence with you, and deal with your head and not your heart!!
good luck

Well Les's has got a 400R GTR body, kit polished rim 5 spokes and a very expensive first class bayside blue respray as well as plenty mods under the bonnet. it really is stunning and i know he has spent a fortune on it.

Les's car is very nice indeed. Don't think the respray is that old either, should be in good condition!

Never noticed that company in the link before, but it does seem very expensive for that gts-t. I've got one of a similar (slightly better) spec, same year and paid less than that.

Ahh theres my old white beastie next to Gordons

Another thumbs up for Les's car mate check it out before looking at others - its quality paint job and he put a fair bit of effort into doing the "right" mods under bonnet
