I've had a lot of cars. ;)

I've had R32, R33, R34 GTR's and i bought a new R35 GTR in '09.

I really liked the R35 and kept it 2 and a bit years.

I've missed it ever since and will buy another soon.
Why such a long face?

Really?  Who on earth ever had a R33?  Yuk    lol.

Just jokes of course.  Clearly you like GTR's

All bought to sell.

I've had 911s, Ferraris, M3s etc etc

The R35 is the cheapest fast car you can buy and, believe it or not, are very involving when pushed hard.


I'll never sell my 308 so will always have an extremely good looking car to ogle over. :)

And hopefully in the next few months my Nissan Turbo SR20 engined Clubman will be finished and i'll have something to take to the track.

I know you had Fun when you've taken the GTR for a drive, didn't realise you've owned one.
What's your overall experience with them in terms of transmission issues and clunky noises as says on the net?
Servicing and ongoing  costs more than a 911? It's good to get your feedback John. Thanks for your input.

My car had a new transmission at 8,000k's!!!

Under warranty of course. I'd never launched it and the reality was it was a electrical issue as was intermittent but Nissan replaced the whole transaxle. I remember the cost was something like $26,000.

It was clunky and noisy but I thought that added to its character. If your friend wants it to drive like an automatic; it wont.

I wouldn't buy one without a warranty and wouldn't buy a private one unless still under factory warranty.
