Check underneath it, and pay close attention. I noticed there aren't any pictures of the underbody, so that could be an ify sign that there is rust. Especially for that price. I could be wrong, and hopefully I am by check over everything for rust spots.

I went and looked at the car today. It was really clean and was 0 rust underneath or anywhere for that matter.

However the car pulled really hard to the right.

Was that because of the HICAs or does it just need an alignment?

Pulls to the right when ? all the time or when breaking etc ??

Hopefully it's just a simple alignment issue, But could be lots of things
A bent steering or suspension arm, sticky caliper, wrong tires sizes / pressure
Hicas does not work consent, it only kicks in after a set mhp

It pulls to the right all the time.

I need to know pretty soon because I am picking it up on Friday. When I was underneath I didn't see anything bent or any sign of an accident.

I am thinking it is an alignment but I need to know what to look at when I go back up to pick it up.

Best thing to do would be to get the seller to have an alignment done.
For the sake of 50 / 100 quid ( British sterling ) and the chance of missing a sale the seller will do it.
The last R33 I sold had 11 months 2 weeks mot on it, He wanted to take it to a different random garage, in case my friend did it, a blind man ( or I left 20 quid in the ashtray for the tester lol ). It passed again and he drove off in it after some paperwork

If it's not alignment could be a bad buy

You see, the thing is. I got the price so low that he is not willing to get an alignment.

I don't think it's a CV joint or anything suspension wise. Only thing I believe I need to look at is a wheel bearing, which would not be too expensive.

Did I miss anything? Anything in particular I should look at?

Maybe any bends or dents in the wheel? I doubt a $50 aligment would set them back any, especially if you pay for it. You could end up saving yourself a huge hassle if you just dish out the dough yourself. Who knows what it could be at this point. Might as well be safe than sorry.
