Well, there will be some expenses that you expect to pay out no matter what. You need to protect your investment so some common sense things to do would be:

Timing belt replacement, which would also make it a good idea to replace the water pump and whilst you are at it, the 3 auxiliary belts.

Also, don't be surprised if a new set of coilpacks and plugs will need investing in.

Good luck with your search.

Look for a proper manual one, not a conversion. And make sure its a turbo from factory. Try confirm it has the neo engine in it and not a R33 drop in conversion.

Other than that, all the usual applies. Good oil, good oil pressure, sensible tuning, rust and accident damage

I have a soft spot for yellow cars, but its alot dearer and alot older,

the only thing stopping me from buying one is that i dont know how much they are worth here in ireland and I dont want to make a serious loss if i decide to sell it again
cheers for your help guys :cheers:

There's been a few on carzone over the summer, seems to be quite a few non-turbo ones for some weird reason bouncing around Kildare, offered by random 2nd-hand dealers.. 2 black GT-r in Kerry, a millenium jade GT-r in carlow - all sold quite sharpish or were pulled..

I saw the Jade GT-r on the back of a flatbed recently :( poor thing looked so out of place..

Yeh one on drift works is a guy on here but don't think he had 100 posts so couldn't sell on here.

Gotta love the eBay one in the description..."no rust or rot anywhere"...then just below that "light surface rust on strut tops"

Massive contradiction so would make me wander what else he or she has lied about...

White one was lovely he only just bought that front bumper and splitter too!

Things like this really put me of an advert for anything.

got to love ebay-isms, like "..sold AS IS.." or the classic "... i don't have a [face/arms/lead] so cannot test this, but it looks great.."

this is fine for a trinket or some vintaj games console, but for a lethal weapon like a liner, you have to run a mile when You spot this nonsense in a listing.
