Hi guys,

I'm looking at selling my Toyota MR2 GT-S Turbo and buying a Skyline. A friend I know is selling his at the following price/spec

£4750
Nissan Skyline R33 (the non turbo version) 1995
Silver
Private Plate
Full bodykit - Veilside nose, rear wing, rear bumper splitters. Border side skirts
18" Work Evoluzione Wheels
HKS SuperDragger Exhaust
Few other mods

Is this a good price? Also where can I find info and statistics on this car? I know it's approx 158BHP and does about 30MPG but I'd like to know a bit more before I think of buying it.

I know it's not as powerful as the monster versions out there but I'm looking for something with half decent insurance/running cost and petrol consumption. My current car is bleeding me dry in those areas (but it is immense fun)

Many thanks

Geno

Theres nout wrong with em at all mate but i think coming from an MR2 Turbo you`ll feel like you`re driving a shed with 4 flat tyres & fat people in the back.
With chips.

You do not mention mileage, condition etc but it sounds like a really nicely specced car although if you can afford it, get into the GTSt as Eddie says - the extra 100odd HP does make a big difference.

Have a look under cars for sale section, there is a nice one at £5,500 which to me seems worth the difference.

Just out of curiosity.. Why would you want to get a less powerfull motor just cos its name..! As you can see I own a 92 MR2 (GT) Turbo and rate it so highly you wouldn't believe..!
Having driven a non turbo 33 gts I'd have to agree with Eddie and say wait a wee while and save for a gts-t....

If you want petrol economy don't buy a skyline. But if you want mahooosive enjoyment per gallon then a skyline is the only car to have. BTW get a Gts25t you won't regret it. I have one and its my daily driver......wooohoooo!

I've seen them for less. But if its from a good dealer & you're getting a warranty, or if its got a few mods... or both!

Is this a fresh import ?

Planeman, is that 45k miles or 45k km? Either way it's reasonable money for a minter. If there's anything you don't like about it then I'd walk if I were you.

I agree with the GTSt comments, I nearly bought a non turbo model as I could not afford a GTSt but was talked into waiting, now I own a GTSt type M which I am totally in love with, I bought it as a weekend funcar but have not driven any of my others cars for 8 weeks. I have unfortunatly found the only thing it wont pass is a petrol station!

Me too. I test drove a GTS4 (i think thats what it was) auto. Could have got it for about 3.5k cps the guy was moning back to japan n needed a quick sale.
spent twice that on a gtst & dont regret it at all. could have bought a GTR (had more than enough money) but couldn`t bring myself to spend 15k+ on a car
