Yeah i'd call the cops about it before anyone decides to torch or strip it. Just doesn't sound right, unless something died, but who would leave a car sitting for so long?

Anyone here missing an R32?

I've driven past the same one over the last three days...appears to have been dumped?

Haven't noticed any damage to it - but i've only been driving past.

Posted this on NS as well, so others there have seen it...

It's apparently a GTR - but I've not paid that much attention (I'm a toyota guy anyway)...

PM me for details if you're missing a skyline... (or if it's yours and just broken or something).

Cheers.

Have you called the cops to advise them of a 'possible' stolen and dumped car? Might be worth the call.

You'll need to provide a rego number to the 131444 hotline.

Not yet...

I'll stop down there tonight and report it.

It's on the way home so no major inconvenience to me... hope it's not a stolen car...it actually looks pretty clean and tidy (from the driveby's i've done).

It's been there since at least early monday morning....

It's an R32 GTR looks to be bayside blue (hard to tell exact shade in the dark), j-spec sticker on the back window - REGO: XKR<xxx> (Intentionally left out)

I contacted the police they said it hasn't been reported stolen, they are going to contact the owner and currently it has been listed as abandoned.

It's really clean, no signs of break in (IE door locks / windows) all in good nick....(Hope it stays that way..really does look a nice car) also no sign of a defect, just a parking infringement on the drivers side window.

I took some pics of it last night but crappy phone cam + dark = fail.

KB-R33 --> Nearest petrol station within 2km either in Seaford or Old Noarlunga....

The cars gone now and the thread has been locked (with content deleted AGAIN) on ns.

*Shrug* it's either been towed or removed by the owner / police or it's on the way to become parts somewhere.

Personally - I hope it's gone back to the owner...but again *Shrug*

    • New R34 owned here (from the US) and found a gem, '98 GTT with ~6k miles, super clean & completely stock. When shifting there's no grinding, shifts smooth, etc. The concern I have are 2 things: 1) Only in 2nd and 3rd... when maintaining a slower speed (in traffic as an example) as I let off/on the gas, the shifter will slightly move and vibrate. If the clutch is engaged, none of this happens. It's not bad, but enough to feel like something isn't necessarily right. 2) This mainly happen in 4th or 5th... the shifter slightly bounces up and down, almost like it's riding on unbalanced tires (and I do think the tires are unbalanced as I get a little of that bounce feel at higher speeds, which is maybe why it only happens in 4th/5th). Lastly, and sorry for this noob question but I want to work on this car myself, can someone teach me some on these manual transmissions? Like servicing them, best products to use, etc.; would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
    • Coilovers aren't even the first step. Bushes, subframe position and alignment, HICAS elimination, adjustable upper arms and traction arms in order to dial out understeer. All these things need/deserve attention first. ARBs (There's no such thing as a swaybar. Please, everybody, stop calling them that) are useful if you want to limit spring stiffness. Otherwise you can control body roll with springs. Spring and damper rates are a function of road surface, speed and usage. There is no solution that works for all cases.
    • Define "nothing". Is the starter spinning but not the engine? Engine turning but not firing? If the engine is turning but not firing, then you are missing either fuel or spark. You need to find whichever has gone missing.
    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
