Rrp Enquiry And Comparison With Nagtroc


Recommended Posts

Just stumbled across this thread at NAGTROC - and the thing I notice the most is that GT-R's there get sold at RRP, or at least people shop around as much as possible to get it at RRP. People really try to get it as cheap as possible.

Comparing with the thread on this forum that had buyers list their driveaway prices, the prices that are 15-20K higher than our RRP for the car.

Just wondering - the strength is in number, why can't people just hit the dealers hard to bring the prices low as possible.

PS: this is the thread where a US dealer got blasted by a number of members for offering an GT-R for a markup that would be acceptable for buyers in OZ, no questions asked:

Dealer offer to US buyers at NAGTROC

There are a number of things working against us here in Australia:

1) The RRP for the Premium GTR is $155,800 +Dealer Delivery, Rego etc etc. The extra money is the dealer delivery charges, in some cases up to $15,000. Whilst this may seem like alot the fact is that there are fewer dealers offering the car here than in the USA, additionally there are fewer cars here than in the USA. Originally we were to expect 200 cars in the first year, this was cut to 100 cars.

2) Our market is not as mature as the US market in terms of time since launch to now. The US has had there GTR for more than 18 months, we are only 4 months into our release still, as such deals are few and far between, especially since supply is now less. There are a couple of great deals that have been done, I know pricing as low as $160k drive away all the way up to $185k drive away, and that was before the price rises.

There are deals to be done if you are at the right place at the right time and are ready to buy.

I am not sure what kind of deals people hope to see here, however if you are willing to play a bit of hard ball and do your homework then you could get the pricing very low, otherwise you could be paying 25k more than your neighbour.

This all makes sense Gibbo. Sometimes it just makes me think that the Yanks are just bloody good negotiators. Is the dealer deliver that really bothers me though - wash and prep, that will be 15K Sir-jeeeezz.

160K is a decent deal IMO, everyone wins, dealer and the buyers, plus the numbers we get will be greater too.

$15k DD is just silly. I thought $5k was bad enough, but i paid it, given the hilarity and mystery of getting on "the list" at the time etc.

I did hear a few month now that DD will be removed in at least one Oz state, pretty sure they said it was New South, but looks like that goss was incorrect. My point is that dealer already makes money if he sells at RRP + (SD and Reg), so what the hell is the DD for :)

I just love the yanks approach - sell at RRP or even below RRP or we won't do business hehehe.

PS: I just saw an add - the Vic dealer wants 21K for DD. 187K on the road - you gotta be kidding me. Are these people for real. Anyways, rant over.

    • 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)
