Wanted A Gt-r But Bought Something Else? Or Had One And Sold It For Something Better?

Recommended Posts

Showed the missus the BMW, she didn't hate it lol

Her comment was "all you've talked about since selling your GTR was getting another GTR. If you buy something else you're going to come back to this again, just wait for a silver 33 or 34 to come along (33 is her preference) and buy it. In the meantime shut up about it, this has been going on for weeks"

Lol

For me i see plenty of cars go past. Evo, rexi, S15, S14, BMW, C63 ect ect

Nothing brings that tingley excitement on like a R33 GTR cruising past.

Closest thing to the feeling of xmas as kid as werid as that may sound.

This. Evos etc are nice and all, but nothing will make me double take like a tough 33.

Saw a clean 33R drive past me the other day. I said to myself, Wow, I actually really dig the size and fatness of it. Really stood out and didn't seem to dated at all compared to the other cars on the road.

Previous to owning the 34R i had the following

Evo 7

R34 GTT

S14

SSS Bluebird SR20

34R is so far the only car that I have not gotten bored of. Ever.

I have been tempted to buy an M5 E60 -the last of the V10s

Also same price as an R34 GTR

Can relate to this, when I see a clean 33GTR on the road, nothing makes me do the "Yeah........ look at that......." like them. I love how tough and wide they look.

Ended up buying a 1M, couldn't let go of the GTR, now the 1M's the daily.

Goombeh; I would love to hear your expirences with the 1M. As I am right now in the process of making that decision vs keeping 34r

I agree the GTR's are getting old, but you only really feel it in the interior. The 34 is the best of them in that respect obviously.

I've driven the new STI and been in the Evo 10, and my standard 34 with an exhaust and the boost restrictor removed is quicker than them both. Also, I think it was Powertune who put the new STI on a dyno and it made around 170-180kw. I had my 34 on a dyno recently and it made 200kw with only the mods listed above (~12 PSI).

Not to mention, very few people look twice when an STI or Evo 10 drives past... I can't drive or park my 34 anywhere without getting some form of attention. I can see how it would be annoying if you were to daily it, but it's a cool feeling owning a car you rarely see on the road. As a few people have said to me, anyone can walk into a dealer and take home an Rex or an Evo.

You made the right choice and you've got a relatively exclusive car. Enjoy :)

I can't wait to get the missing body pieces in place and a few things painted, it will turn my head that's for sure. Could care less what others think :)

J, 1M is unbelievably. I wanted an E46M3, but couldn't love it, so decided on an E92 M3, still didn't. Drove many of them and just couldn't get into them, drove the 1M by chance and 5 minutes in, was wondering if they'd give me a discount if I put a deposit on the day. It was that good.

It has a face only a mother could love, but on the road it's a monster. Breaks traction all the way to third and if you just want to potter, it'll do that too. So for me it was the perfect car just to get around in, but hit a fast mountain pass, and it's vicious and incredibly entertaining. And it feels Old school raw... properly raw.

If you're seriously considering one, take one for a drive if possible, and I dare you to not buy it. If you want any more info, happy to have a chat.
