Any Info On This R35?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum actively looking to buy a R35 as a step-up from my current Nissan. I came accross this one in the market, inspected, looks ok.

Does anyone have any info on this car? Obviously it has spent sometime here in Syd. it might have been seen on a track, events etc.

Owner claims his wife was driving to the shops all the time, hence low Ks what sounded so "used car salesman"..

Tyres almost gone at 12.5K..not a good sign really.

Anything will help to decide.

Cheers,

K.

Its a JDM 2010, so its a 2008 with a complianced plate done in 2010... Since Dec 2008, no JDM R35's can be complianced in Aus unless they are 2008 vintage.

Most of these cars arrived on our shores for less than $90k, and then marked up at a profit in competition with the ADM cars.

And warranty? 3 years aftermarket covering what exactly?? Most Nissan service centres won't touch em with a 40' pole either..

I'm not sure if the JDM multi-function display has english. TBE and Cobb tune.... I wonder if the bellhousing has been replaced, and the miriad of

transmission issues that came with the 2007/2008 models.....

You take your chances IMO, but the price is way too high. Offer $85k take it or leave it.

For that price, I would (actually I did) pick up a 09 and possibly a 10 if you can throw a bit more $ in. Nothing wrong with an import but I don't think it's worth the hassles if it's priced that close to an ADM. It also has mods on it already so I would be vary of the condition of the tranny. If you are dead set on it, take it to a reputable workshop and get a very thorough check. Nissan won't touch it unfortunately from what I've heard as it's an import.

When i was looking at buying one i was told to get an ADM car, I got mine from Sydney just like that one red mine had just over 9000km on it. It cost me $108,000 now it has about 15,000 km,s andd the front tyres are worn out on the inside as well, i dont know if its true but im sure i heared somewhere that the front suspension has 2 settings road and Track, and they are set to track from factory. Before i get the new tyres i will try and get more info on this.

Indeed there are 2 camber settings (street + track). I had mine changed to "street" at the first 2000kms service.

can i get the camber settings changed to road setup at any laser alighnment centre? or does nissan have to do it? if so what are the settings that make the tyres wear out more evenly, This 15000km on a set of front tyres is just not on.

Speaking from personal experience with this particular warranty - absolutely nothing.

Appreciate the feedback. Not touching it, obviously not a best choice.

Good luck mate, i'm sure you'll find a good one. You have fantastic taste in cars.

I'm planning on one of these shortly too, though i'll be going through private sales searching for an ADM one, my preference shall be pearl white.

Cheers.

Try to get a 2010 or later mate. I almost bought a 2009, but the better MFD screen resolution in the 2010 is well worth it!
