Seems strange bringing it in through France ?? I would want to know why they went to the trouble of bringing it into the UK and then not bothering to SVA test it or register it here.
Have you been to look at it and ask these questions ? also if you say it has been up on ebay before was it sold because that would worry me even more.
And the ABS problem could be an expensive can of worms.

One more thing, the car is in Bedfordshire and last time i looked that wasn't near any sea ports so probably isn't an import company selling it

If you take a look ask the questions and let us know what you uncover.

Good luck.

well ive done a few kit cars in my time and im familiar with sva tests and i took it that the car wouldn't go through the sva as the abs didn't work.
as for them bringing it all the way here and not fixing it to get it through the sva well i must admit it does throw up some big question marks for me.
i haven't asked the seller any questions yet as from past experience ebay sellers aren't know for their honesty but from their feedback they look like a breakers but if this is just an abs fault what would be a rough maximum cost ?

Regarding the ABS problem ask the owner if the car ever goes into limp mode when driven. It could be something simple like the wrong size tyres front to back which could be the problem.

If you go see it ask the owner if you can do a self diagnostics test on the car and make a note of any fault codes it may throw out. This should give you an idea of any problems the car may have. The ABS problem will need to be tested by nissan as they will need to plug into the brake ecu which wont show on the test below.
Its quiet easy to do just follow the instructions below;

It is very important to get the timing right or it wont work, you may need a few goes at it.

Take a pen and paper in the car with you.

Turn ignition on, wait 3 seconds (just to on but dont crank/start the car)

2) Push fully and release the gas pedal 5 times within 5 seconds (timing important and make sure you floor the gas pedal and fully release it each time)
3) Wait 7 secs, then fully push gas pedal and hold for 10 seconds until the engine light starts to blink on the dash.
4) Release gas pedal (you are in diagnostic test mode 2)

If you dont get it to work first time turn it fully off remove the key for 1 minute then begin again. It took me about 5 attempts to get it working.

The engine block will now flash a series of 4 numbers (ie 2 flashes means number 2 etc) with a short pause in between. Count the four series of flashes for the code. BTW 10 flashes is number 0.
So if you start with 10 flashes pause 2 flashes pause 4 flashes pause 6 flashes your code will be 0246.

what a list G35brit. Hope you were able to copy and paste it all. hate to think how long it would take to type. especially with the 1 finger method.
Ha ha, the beauty of cut and paste.

This diagnostics test and the codes have been around for a while now so i copied it from one of the first posts i made when joining this site. Previous to posting here i belonged to a couple of U.S forums where i found out about it.

Nissan have been charging anything from £90 to £200 to plug their fault reader into our cars ECU which gives the same results.

When keith gets back from the maldives i will get him to put it up as a sticky in our section.

Just had a look at that link - showing winning bid for car as £4200......I wonder if someone got the bargain of the century or not.....also, I see that it only has 4500km on the odometer .......thats not a lot of distance for a car thats nearly 6 years old.........

Agree nothing adds up with this car (but stranger things have happened i supose)

One of the bidders (not the winner) upt his own bid from 3k to 4k for no obvious reason ??? very strange.

Oh, G35: thanks for that list.

This may seem like a stupid question, but is it prudent to carry out that diagnostic randomly just to make sure there are no errors hiding anywhere, or will the car make it clear that it needs the disgnostic run?

I have been watching this one as well. If you look back you may notice it has sold twice before. I am sure this is the 3rd time, so not sure if it it owner bidding it up and not reaching what he wants.

would be interesting to see if it goes on again in a few weeks.

If there is any faults the management light will come on anyway . Just make sure the light comes on during start up for a short while as there are scum out there that would remove the bulb from the dash when selling on if a fault was showing up.
Otherwise no point in doing the test really.

HI g35brit

Hi, I just joined the site today. I was having problems with my 350GT. and started a search.
I have a 350GT premium 4door, with paddle shift. went like a rocket when i brought it, and after getting a flat battery a year ago,it didnt seem to run as well, eg like a rocket of the mark, or under quick acceleration,, Must admit i could still easily have it run out the speedometer and no idea how fast im going anymore with still HP and rpm under the hood to spare ( and a earache from my wife about my adolesence as my 14 yold son excitely telling his Mum each time we come home) . well been overseas for a month, came back and had a flat battery upon return. after a battery recharge it was running really rough, so after reading your easy info, and another website with a few extra things to do ,, (relating to USA Altima settings ) seem the same.
I am overjoyed after spending many attempts at getting the timming right to activate the programe this evening, over an hour, and no money to the local dealership.
The Car now is running very smoothly ,and i cant wait to go out tommorrow and excitely try it out on the expressway . It is great to be nearly 60 and still feel like a boy in a family car. ( I had a new 180BSSS and a new 240Z when i was in my late teens/early 20s, and the early 70s everybody looked at me driving these amazing cars. now i still feel the same and get the same looks, But as many posts ive scince read. I love my current 4 door 35ogt the best, a real comfortable pocket rocket .
A big thank you for your easy ,helpfull advise .
