NIS­SAN SKY­LINE GT-R (R35) BUY­ING TIPS

Japanese Performance - - FEATURES -

• A COM­PLETE SER­VICE HIS­TORY FROM EI­THER A NIS­SAN HIGH PER­FOR­MANCE CEN­TRE, OR AN EX­PE­RI­ENCED GT-R SPE­CIAL­IST, IS AN ES­SEN­TIAL PRE­REQ­UI­SITE

• SER­VIC­ING ON EAR­LIER GT-RS IS EVERY SIX MONTHS OR 6000 MILES, WITH 2011-ON MOD­ELS EVERY 9000 MILES OR 12 MONTHS

• MANY GT-RS HAVE AL­READY BEEN TUNED – SO CHECK THE PROVE­NANCE CARE­FULLY, AND IN­SUR­ANCE PRE­MI­UMS ARE HIGHER ON JDM MOD­ELS

• THE DRIV­E­TRAIN CAN SUF­FER BELL-HOUS­ING BEAR­ING FAIL­URE – USU­ALLY IDEN­TI­FIED BY A DIS­TINC­TIVE NOISE COM­ING FROM UN­DER THE VE­HI­CLE. GET THE CAR IN­SPECTED AS RE­PAIR COSTS CAN EX­CEED £3500

• UK CARS COME WITH SPE­CIAL DUNLOP RUN-FLAT TYRES, WHICH COST AROUND £2300 A SET. SO, SOME OWN­ERS HAVE FIT­TED CHEAPER BRIDGE­STONE NON-RUN-FLAT RE070R TYRES IN­STEAD

• OE BRAKE DISCS CAN SPLIN­TER AND CRACK SO MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THEM CLOSELY

• SOME GT-RS NEEDED COM­PLETE STEER­ING RE­PLACE­MENT UN­DER WAR­RANTY – CALL A NIS­SAN HIGH PER­FOR­MANCE CEN­TRE WITH THE CHAS­SIS NUM­BER TO SEE IF THIS WORK HAS BEEN CAR­RIED OUT
