Hi there,
Yeah, you won't find a R34 GTR in germany let alone the UK with a budget of 15000 euros.
In Germany your looking at at least 30000 euros for a half decent GTR but a GTT should be within your budget limits. Oh, btw, are you a Brit or German.
If you search for one in Germany already registered wich is the easiest, you will be paying about 15000 euros for a half decent example but be careful, their are dealers offering below standard cars for alot less. In the end though, you get what you pay for!
I would advise you to register with the German skyline-forum http://www.skyline-forum.de/ even if you don't speak German, their are some reputable dealers and importers on there who will help steer you in the right direction to find the car you want.
If its a new Jap imoport or UK import you buy, it will have to have some work done to it (Headlight conversion, emissions, TÜV test, ) before you can register it in Germany and this usually costs somewhere in the region of 1500 euros and upwards, depending on how modified the car is.
As for taxes, if its a UK import their is nothing to pay as its within Europe and if its a Jap import, the importer will include this in the final price of the car wich should be below your budget of 15000 euros.
Local road taxes are at about 150 euros per Year. Insurance is a bit tricky. Because the Skyline is a grey import, their is no official type classifacation, so insurance companies will compare a skyline with a similar type of car and make an individual offer. This, depending on your age, expierience and NCB will cost you anywhere between 1000 and 2000 euros a year fully comp, third party about 50% less.
Hope this helps,
Greetz Tony.

PS, where abouts in Germany are you?

18 yrs old? I think you should get an insurance quote before you go buying a Skyline.!!!
It could well be that they won't insure you, I know I wouldn't.
What have you been driving before?

Forget it chap! its not worth trying to regester a skyline offichally in Germany on your budget! your beter off with an Audi!!

if you are really deperate then a chap on here in Bruanschwig has just crashed his in the snow, and i think wants to sell it now! trust me rear drive wide tyres and resonable power dont work in the Snow!!!

also if you cant do all the work yourself and need a garage to work on a Skyline, you will need to drive to England to have it fixed! unless its "a Golf" nobody has a bleedin clue!!! trust me!!

?? Evo on snow/winter tires is amazing! Mate with an 8 here can drive it in snow mode like its on a rally stage!! A GTT, etc. is rear wheel drive! My BMW 740i sport is less than useless, with or with out the dsc on!!! the traction controll works amazingly well at preventing a spin, but will get you bogged down as soon as you stop in anything deeper than a puddle!! and without an LSD you can forget about tackleing a hill (read slight bump in the road surface!!) 15k buys you alot of nearly new car and a Skyline in Germany would be the last car i would recomend! unless you have very deep pockets and are slghtly mad!! (a bit like myself!!!! :-D )

good luck,

herzlich willkommen to the land of the sausage!!

Don't worry about repairs, their are enough skyline specialist garages in the NRW area for that and spares aswell are not a big problem.
Also, with a budget of 15000 euros, a R34 GTT is well within your range. I know because I and lots of other people have already done it!!!

well since it looks like am the only skyline in braunschweig and am the one who post the story of my crash over here i think u were talking about me , nothing rong with that but i have to agree with u about the driving of rear wheel drive cars in the snow expecially the skyline its a ****ing mess and very very dangerouse anless u have a field just for u and u just play around , but for a morning driving to work wen the roads are not clear yeat it a trip to hell , not about selling the car NEVERRRRRRR, ITS JUST A SLIGT DAMAGE IN THE FRONT BUMPER, now for the new guy ( mate u were in turkey with a evo 8 ? u must be a ritchy boy man , having a evo in turkey its like having god next to you , everybody love it , and the cost of a evo there or even export its super expensive , now with 18 years old no insurance will quote you or even insure you in any high performance car , maybe in a fiat coupe turbo or a ford probe , fiat uno turbo, kadet gsi or any gti car because here they mesure the weight of the car in comparison with the ps (bhp) and evo skyline , supra, subaru wrx sti, all these come alredy with big ps (bhp) stock and the cars dont weight more then 1400kg around , so for that the insurance companies give you very high prices because they consider you as a dangeur in the road. skyline in the 5 or 6 months winter in germany its useless unless u garaged (like me) and drive it only in the summer , as for tax am payng 380 euros a year because i dont have a choke control installed (all stock skylines dont have it) a mecanic told me if i install one it will damage my car so the tax its ****ing expensive , then like they other guy said u will rarelly find a mecanic that can understand the skyline or even want to touch it or service it .. just get another evo mate its better for u ( or a golf lol).. good luck

Thanks for advise:bigthumb: This is evo 9 İn Turkey Evos value 40.000 euros (%64 tax &vats :wtf:)
Ye driving evo in snow its good but the problem is Evo is in Turkey(Antalya) the distance is 3600 So fuel consumption 8 l/100km İn its seems over 1000 euros :eek7:

Also insurance its hard to do ....

silvia rwd , same problem as the skyline no traction on snow lol

Yes i know but driving silvia is easier to control i think :naughty:
