Ok I just have to say it as I remembered this morning.

Who on earth had the GTR Badge on the back of their car up at the POD when it was blatently not a GTR ?

Did anyone else see this or was hi seeing things because of the heat ?

Seen a few like that, including some on autotrader which were being sold as gtr's when they clearly weren't.

I get a wee bit suspicious when i see a 94 gtr advertised for 4 grand.

Be proud of what you've got, don't try and be something you aint.

If I was unfortunate enough to have a GTR I would put a GTS badge on it

I have GTR brakes and a GTR front but thats cos I wanna stop and get some fresh air on my FMIC, I certainly wouldnt go around lying to the un-knowing

He is a japanese guy, I met him at the Option Motorsport drift day on Monday, he imported the car as standard and has fitted a JUN bodykit to it, he was ok actually, so I for one will let him off :)

Wont catch me putting one on my car though....! :rolleyes: :D

did he have a fancy bonnet on too. If so it might have been the guy I met at the Milton Keynes meet. Although the kit wasn't spayed then. Was the interior a bit wierd too?

It was a very heavy carbon bonnet.. well it was heavy compared to the GTR bonnet.. but as light as a feather compared to Sarcy's...

Hmm... GTR Badge on a GTS? Been there, wanted to wind folks up, felt like a twat, and duly removed it. Not clever. I love my GTS-T, and am proud of it. I think said chap will, in time, probably realise that a Skyline, GTR or GTS, is a fantastic piece of machinery, and be proud to own one without having to attempt to pass it off as something else.

thought so. He's alright, plus he can source his own aero parts. Although I am still waiting for his picks of the JUN rear wing he has as I need it for my kit.
