Had a early start Saturday morning , flew up to Edinburgh and the missus bought herself a a Manual Skyline 350GT to replace her RX8

20IN Rims , also having leather fitted , so its a flight back upon the 29th to pick it up

Mind you that Gay merc grille is first thing to go and also ordering a standard factory spoiler for it as well as clear front indicators

buy everything from States as much cheaper

here she is

lol my mrs has just seen it......"OH thats nice ill have one of those" she pipes up.......:D

Auto /tip one is great drive too , but we hung out for 6 spd manual

£12 - 16k will get you a good Auto ,

3x Auctions 44000 cars later in Tokyo with a buyer out there and i end up buying a just landed fresh import grade 4.5 Manual in Edinburgh ,


found him by chance , has quite a few up there ,

with the extras and the leather going in the car started off at £17k but she came home £19100 lighter ,

but tbh the car is as new and rare as fook ...

295bhp from the manual 5.9secs to 60

very nice - wish my bint liked skylines - she just whinges about the noise whilst in the car so I drive faster so I cant hear her. Looks a very clean car - good buy! BTW what wheels are those on your GTS-t as they look tasy!

yeah mine moans too , But scares me witless in mine while shes driving arse end out telling me to shut up in the passenger seat as shes having fun .. pmsl

GT Culture rims 8.5in for a GTS with 225/40 all round , you can't get them now in 9.5 for the GTR ,

really you reckon no spoiler ?

the standard one looks great , got to see both while up looking at car ,

mmh perhaps live without for a few weeks then decide .

that gay merc grille just has to go ,

I reckon that is the weak link why people don't like them , simple just change it ,

oh and had the its not a skyline ... wtf

its 1 sec slower and 6bhp less than a "factory standard" R33 GTR , Ok it has no turbo and no 4WD but hey with performance like that i think it has earnt the badge ,

design and shape move on just because it don't look like a 32 or 33 don't mean its not one ,

just gets put in the oh its a 350z catagory , which i feel is a real shame , whack a turbo or supercharger on and you are upto 400bhp ( anymore and engine needs internal work )

with it being released here next year as the Infinitii G37 Coupe (£35k) i thought this was a great buy and really rare car at moment

good luck with the 350gt had mine for 18 mths now and just had it boosted.
If you are at the Pod on the 6th or 7th look me up as i have loads of contacts for AM parts you might want.
BTW use the original Gialla front grill as the copy ones dont fit right.
Here is mine,
