160K seems a little over the top when other importers have them listed for quite a bit less

The dealer here is taking deposits already, I rang up in January and was told you can be put on the order list and $10K is required once final specs are announced.

Currently 3 in Perth through importing.

No warranty puts me off, and who here would fix the Nissan 'box if it broke....and at what cost.

Oh - I didn't notice that on the j-spec site - but the $160k car came with a 5-year factory warranty, so it said.

Surely Nissan dealers would have all the tech specs and info available...

and the tech skills?

As for warranty.... dunno. Write a letter?

i highly doubt Nissan Australia will be honoring any warranty on imported vehicles. They are already starting to look for the people importing them

GT-R (R35) INTELLIGENCE

By now almost all of you have had exposure to the new GT-R (R35), which is proposed to be on sale in Australia in the first half of 2009. It is a sensational vehicle for Nissan in Australia, and I know that Ross Booth (General Manager Marketing) and his team are working hard to ensure the vehicle is a huge marketing and sales success.

The fact of commercial life is that Nissan will face competition for our GT-R customers from “grey vehicle” importers, automotive workshops, and other fringe dwellers. The window from these “grey vehicle” competitors is capped to when Nissan obtains “full volume certification” for the GT-R (R35) model. We expect to have that Government certification by early 2009 (about 10 – 11 months).

We have already had a number of items of intelligence sent to me already which is heartening.

What can Nissan do to stop these “grey car importers” stealing our customers and selling R35 GT-Rs?

There are some countermeasures being put in place, but what we really need is good intelligence!

Intelligence

Your eyes, ears and contacts can go a long way to detect sales activity and promotion of GT-R (R35) vehicles by Australian or Japanese parties. We are focused on the R35 rather than older Skyline models (R32 – 33 – 34) or other Nissan models (e.g. Silvias).

I am asking for your assistance – should you find any worthwhile intelligence, please send it to the following email address: gtrintelligence@nissan.com.au or call me on 0397974120.

It could be photos (found or your own) of GT-R vehicles, information from friends or relatives, chat lines, blogs, car forums, names of businesses, individuals promoting GT-R (R35) sales, Internet sites of businesses, eBay auctions, etc. Almost anything related to promoting these businesses’ own sales or displays of the GT-R (R35).

If the intelligence is in hard copy, please send it to me by internal mail, marked ‘GT-R Intelligence.’

Should any of the intelligence received lead to stopping potential damage or loss to Nissan Australia, then an appropriate “reward” will be made to those employees.
I look forward to your enthusiasm and co-operation in gathering intelligence that will contribute to making Nissan’s launch and sales of the GT-R (R35) a huge success.
