Hi there,  I am from the US and have recently purchased an R32 GTS25 sedan.  I am always looking up threads on this site for information so I figured it would be a good idea to sign up. I've recently just manual swapped my car and am looking at the next project to be a +t setup.

Welcome to SAU. You'll certainly find the info you need here. 

Did you import the car yourself or did you go through an import dealer over there? I'd be keen to know how American's get a hold of their cars.

Also, any pictures? I love pictures! :)

She's not much to look at currently. Basically stock besides the recent manual swap.  I'm looking at some lowering springs with kyb super specials to lower it just a bit.

I bought it from a company that imports them. Compared to what you pay for them I'm sure it's absurd but supply and demand I suppose. I paid $6200 shipped to my door through the import company.  I did look at the option of importing it myself but it seems that they purposely use cameras from 1995 for the pictures and I was afraid of ending with a rust bucket. With the company I bought it from, they already had it on the way and I put down a refundable deposit. So, if it had arrived rusty or in poor shape, I could have backed out. I guess I paid extra for the peace of mind.

That's a little under $10k in AUD which is pretty good.

I bet its really nice with the manual!! It looks pretty clean.

I'm all for peace of mind. In this case I would have engaged an importer too!

That looks tidy. Replace the gear shift boot and that looks like a pretty decent car to cruise around in over summer

I had 1 exactly the same as that in 1998. Loved it it was my first experience into the skyline scene. Mine had a spoiler on the boot . I put 18’s on it just to look cool and she was good to go. Enjoy buddy .

Yeah, I've ordered a shift boot but it didn't come with the plastic trim so now I'm on the lookout for that. Hard to come by around where I live. I posted in the classifieds here to see if anyone has one for sale.

Hi Ryan, welcome! 

You might want to start a new topic rather than adding to an existing one. I love RS3's!
