I bought mine from Japcars in Dublin. Very happy, had a good bargaining session and got a nice few pound off. Got the car serviced and t-belt replaced for nothing before I collected it. He even gave me a 2 year guarantee which I was surprised at, but well happy with at the same time!! Anything he doesn't have he'll get you as he goes over to Japan himself and sources out the cars. He doesn't register them til they're sold either so it probably won't be too difficult to register it in England or wherever you are. Or does SoCAL mean southern California??? That might be just a tad more difficult!!

I used AutoAdvan for mine and they were fine although their aftersales was not very good at all. They didn't want to know.

I think your find guys he's talking about a certain new GTR which i some how dont think any of the normal dealers/importers would be able to get as i'm sure it will only be available through Nissan dealers or maybe Middlehurst.

Dont bother with autoadvan they only use the stock from japanautodirect and put them on there flashy site. They dont even get the car M.O.T'd and taxed.

My gunmetal GTsT is advertised on autoadvan for £3800 even though its currenlty being shipped over japan as week speak at the sold price of £1880.

If you want to speak direct to a japan based dealer try japanautodirect they are all english speaking sound like kiwi's and auzzies and are available out of work hours direct on there mobiles as well as company phone1

On another note I can help you to import one if you like, its what I intend to do for work in the future.
The process is pretty simple, after you spend the 6billion hours reading up and phoning different company's like I have he he.

Try these:

http://www.daishintrading.com/
http://www.ibcjapan.co.jp/

Just a couple a lot of people in this country use. If you mail them they'll try and get you what you want. They'll try and help you anyway. I can't vouch for them myself as I bought off a local import dealer so I'd have comeback but I've read good things about them on forums and that. I suppose it's a chance you'll have to take like any importer.

Best of luck.
