  1. Hard to believe when I first joined this forum back in 2004 there were posts warning people not to import sub 20k R32 GTR's as they were most likely money pits (probably true at the time). I kinda wish I did, even if it just sat in the garage but hey 🤷‍♂️ There is a natural market curve of vehicle value which usually dips at around 10 years, bottoming out at around 20 years, and then recovering from that point on - obviously this doesn't apply to all vehicles. My take is the above, plus years of USA pent-up JDM lust now being relieved by now legally being able import these cars combined with social media & youtube personalities like tommyfyeah restoring, importing and collecting super rare parts in an increasingly smaller market has created a market bubble in this scene with no sign of bursting anytime soon. Can only be a good thing for those who have already bought in 🙂
  2. Doing an OEM / Nismo restoration and already have some struts. Just missing the springs.
  3. Thanks, definitely an option. I had import monster and Jesse quote to send over before Christmas broker fees aren't the problem but shipping companies are practically asking you to cut off your right arm with their exorbitant charges these days 😰 Figured I'd try here first before taking the hit on sourcing from yahoo Japan 🤞
  4. Probably a long shot, but after a set of R32GTR Nismo S-Tune springs (will also take springs and shocks together). Not too worried about condition.
  5. Can the factory style cruise, including wiring to the dash cluster light be fitted by anyone in Melbourne?
  6. Great read! Ive also been to Russia, we drove by bus from Helsinki to St Peterburg... insane drivers on the road! but St Pete's is incredible. Awesome to see there is a JDM scene there
  7. Would the usdm centre unit still display the trip and distance in miles once swapped over to a JDM cluster?
  8. Hi Space-Man, does the mirror camera still work with the AU infiniti system?
  9. Lekker thread zo ver, gaat an geweldig auto weneer het klaar is! Groetjes vanuit Australië..
  10. Agree with above approach. I recall reading on SAU years ago of people spending hundreds on Motul Chrono 300V and changing it every 5000kms of street driving on their mildly modded car... Most likely this is overkill for the street and a waste of money but as they say; a fool and his money are easily....
  11. That's a fair point, but I bet these days its unlikely any of the oils sold are likely going to cause an engine to self destruct. I ended up referring to another forum bobistheoilguy.com and think I'll settle with an oil I can readily pick up from autobarn etc relatively cheap at $85 for 5L that seems to have good feedback from used oil analysis tests and users in general. Looks like I will settle with Liqui-Moly 5w30 Leichtluft special LL (seems Nissan run liqui-moly in their bathurst 12H GTR as well) and I'll run genuine filters.
  12. I've got about another 250kms left until I'll be due for the first service since I've owned my V36. I've been looking at the Martini Racing Oil line, but can't seem to workout where to buy it. What are the current recommended good quality oils I should be looking into?
  13. Had ceramic paint protection coating applied to the paint about 3 months ago and decided I'd give my 370 a wash and snap a photo over the weekend. Really happy with the ceramic coating!
  14. Some time ago I spoke to a laser etching place in the Brisbane area the idea being to remove black paint on existing buttons (either sand it down or remove with acetone) spray black dash paint over the top of existing buttons then re-etch English words over the top in matching font. I Never got around to doing it to see how well it would turn out, but the place said indicated it would work quite well.
  15. Sure, you need to Contact Nagoya Motors in Sydney. Pretty sure everything is functional aside from the Japanese voice. As I understand it the GPS has an english voice though...
