Hey guys

Looking at buying an r33 gtst as a daily car to drive everyday, just wondering if these are reliable enough to get me to work etc everyday, and yes i am gonna be driving it like a normal person, dont want any attention etc. So if other r33 drivers could let me know about how theres goes would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers...

Mine is a daily and I have had no issues in just on a year of ownership.

Just make sure that is is serviced every 5000kms or so and you should be right. ;)

Drive mine as a daily as well and no problems at all...until i started modding it haha. won't have any problems with one if as dan said you don't buy a lemon and get a good one that has been inspected properly.

ive got r33 with 350hp use it as my daily driver i get about 400-450km out of the tank, when i drive on boost alot i usually get around 400-420km.

touch wood mine has been reliable now for 3years + but i do service it every 5000km and also check that everything is ok (check oil etc)

hey man you shouldn't have any trouble as others have mentioned. the only probs with my car have resulted from mods on it, either from the previous owner, or myself :D

ive had the car for 2 years now.

I'd say buy one that is already heavily modded as long as its in good nic and well tuned etc because you'll likely get bitten buy the bug so save yourself some money in the long run!

I've had mine for 4 years and its done 210 000km - hasnt broken down once (except when I have left the interior light on). I get it regularly serviced and anything that needs fixing from wear and tear I get sorted out straight away (even though I curse my car when something major does need replacing). I drive my car every day and I race it in the motor kahna at AHG. Its been more reliable than any other car I have had! My car is only slightly modded and I have never had any police attention in it, except a couple of speeding fines. But I haven't been harassed or given a yellow. You'll love your car once you get it!

Now that I have said all this... my car will break down today and I will get a yellow sticker :D

South of river where? You know suburbs like South Perth, Applecross etc have some of the highest amounts of break ins? I lived in Armadale for a while and parked my skyline out the front all the time - not one incident. It doesn't matter where you live if you just be smart about where you park your car - especially at night and make sure you have insurance if you're that worried about it. :rofl:

    • The old "Gentleman's agreement".  They all kept publishing that number to avoid government intervention. They all kept pushing over it to be quicker than the other guy.   It's why I'll say it's smart the Gen4 Supra was more suited/targetted to taking on freeway runs, than taking on the GTR directly. Nissan and Yoda rivalry slightly more apart receiving a little less criticism compared to the Holden Vs Ford in the years gone by with the likes of the GTHO etc.
    • The GTT's Neo actually did produce ~206kW at the flywheel. The 34GTR's 26 really did not produce 206kW at the flywheel. By the time the 34 came around the 26 was likely up around 230-240 kW, and probably could have been more. The Japanese manufacturer's had an agreement to not sell any cars that made more than 206kW (actuall, their agreement was expressed in the stupid non-metric German ps units which is essentially horsepower, and the numerical value in the agreement was 280ps). So Evos, Supras, GTRs, 3000GTs, and so on, all had official 206kW power outputs published, and all made variously larger numbers than that. Even the R32 GTR made a decent margin over the official number, all the way back in 1989. As you'd bloody well hope for a TT 2.6l 24v engine running ~12psi of boost.
    • See, Euro trash. Ha ha ha. And I have to say, you nearly nailed the description of yourself. But you can't be elitist if you can't look down on people. Or see what's on top of the Fridge.
    • Manufacturers quote power at the engine, we quote power at the wheels, which will always be lower due to drivetrain losses.  
    • As someone with an EV, who also does Bris to Sydney road trips, I can get from Bris to Syd in the same time, and a shit tonne cheaper in the EV vs the Petrol car.   It's a slight change for SOME people in how you'd do the trip, but in reality, even for the cranky people who just want to haul ass and only stop once, it's still doable in the EV, it might make the people who are so dead set on pretending their in an F1 race pit stop take another 30 minutes to get get to Sydney. Then there's all the people who do a road trip like that over 2 days. Those people can charge the car over night! 😮 zero impact then!!! 😮   and then running around the city, from 0-100 it's like driving a gas guzzling sports car, with it always in gear for power, except, you pay only $3 / 100km to drive, when driving spiritedly! considering fuel around $2 a litre, it means still $9 cheaper per / 100km than a Hybrid Camry... (And I have a lot of experience on the Hybrid Toyodas too. Good cars, wanting the Hybrid Fortuner or Prado when it comes out for the missus). Driving the EV around, the other thing I never spend time in my life doing, is going somewhere to fuel up.    I will agree 100% EVs are not for everyone.  In fact, those who don't do lots of KMs each week, I'd tell them to be buying a Hybrid or full ICE. If you want a track/race car, ICE.   The other thing when everyone races about long road trips and EVs, the reality is, people rarely take them. Most families, might do a Bris to Sydney style trip ONCE every four or five years. I used to do that trip, plus add to Canberra, and Batemans Bay in the same trip. And by used to, I'd do that about 3 or 4 times a year, for a few years straight. Ya know what I do now? I get on a bus. And by bus, I mean one that holds over 100 people, and can do about 900kmh. f**k boring road trips!         Topic of Camrys being driven by scary people, I see wayyyy less of that in Brisbane. In fact, I'll say in Bris I don't look for any vehicles in particular except for old 4WDs like GQ or 80 series cruisers, and modern dual cabs. They're often maniacs. Other than that, every other car on the road has a 50 to 75% chance they're high, using a phone, asleep at the wheel, or just a f**king idiot with no perception of the world outside of them. Oh, actually, I do keep an eye out for the white Toyota Camrys. Mainly because they put sore loser lights in them. If they get beaten in a drag race or overtaken on the freeway, they start flashing red and blue!
