buying a r32gtr


Recommended Posts

hi, ill try keep this short and sweet.

My first post and i have tried searching teh forum for info to no avail, so please dont flame me.

I currently have been driving an S13 k's and im considering buying an R32 GTR.

I dont wish to modify it or if i do i will keep it very simple and basic, as i love these cars in their pure original form.

I have seen many r32 gtr pop up for good prices and i am a little sus as to problems i may run into if i get one. I have been a very keen silvia fan for many years however i am not so informed when it comes to skylines (i know the basics) and particualry the gritty details that i wish to know when buying ect.

Are there any links you can give me where i can read about comon problems, specific things to check out and so forth.

I realise that r32s are getting really old now so i assume they will have quite a few problems associated with age.

any help, link to threads, links to webpages ect is appreciated

thanks,

Emil

BTW: Im sorry if this is posted in the wrong section as im still trying to navagate the forum sections ect. Could a mod please move should it be so.

Best thing i can suggest man is to get an inspection done on any that you are seriously interested in...

P.S. I got one for sale :P guy who put down the deposit isn't looking to promising at the moment... so lemme know if u wanna look...

crap my net jsut screwed up when i had writtena long post!!grr

anyway, i really need info about r32 gtr's. i know getting an inspection is good idea, but i would prefer to educate myself as much as i can prior.

i can afford the car initially, but i wont be able to afford major repairs ect.

I assume the maintenace is similar to other imports? i cant see how it can be much more expensive.

Im also intersted in buying a stock gtr (and keeping it stock) so i figure this will make it "safer" for me when/if buying?

Hey Emil,

My advise is get a GTR if you can afford one.

Budget yourself about 28k for the car.. and make sure you constantly have about 8k sitting in a bank tied up in a savings account in case it breaks down (and it will) eg. if you need an engine rebuild. Dont think your going to get away without having problems, and on a car like this the costs are enormous.

Remember that pretty much every single part that you replace on a GTR is going to cost up to 3x as much as your silvia.

My advise would be keep the silvia, thrash the crap out of it until it dies and you have a considerably decent amount of money invested.. THEN get the GTR :)

nooo, this isnt what i want to hear!! :thumbsup:

oh well i guess my dream is dead then.

I just cant comprehend spending heaps of money on mods on my silvia with the knowledge that i will sell it in a few years to "upgrade".

hmm now i dont know what to do

i thought a gtr would have been reasonably reliable, not to mention the rb26

Rb26's are not as bulletproof as people seem to think, i know this first hand, and as pentae said everything is hugely more expensive, mine blew up 5 days after i bought it and it was inspected by myself and a very good mechanic.
