This quote comes from one of our sources...

Each new Model Year sees an evolution of the R35 GT-R. Sometimes it’s a few minor things and others, like for the MY17, it’s a major revamp. The previous significant change before MY17 was arguably MY11 which was followed by relatively minor tweaks. So what can we expect for MY18?
 
 
Informed sauces suggest the pattern is being followed so not a lot to add to the MY17. Amongst this annual evolution, the following are talked about:
 
-          Apple CARPLAY (as per latest Micra and LEAF) through one of the USB ports.
-          Revised specification of tyres from Dunlop.
-          Implementation of a CAN Gateway to help control / protect the diagnosis connector.
 
 
We will have to wait for a product bulletin to confirm the above…
 

 

 

We'll have a short wait to see if they are right.  Put your orders in now!

I understand that apple CarPlay is available in the US but is NOT available on the UK 2018 models.
Fairly standard Nissan practice of being slow to introduce stuff that other manufacturers have been doing for years...
2016 GT-R Recaro Black. A younger model is not necessarily better...

I've just been phoned by my local GT-R salesman who assures me Apple CarPlay is on the UK MY18 edition.

That's as close to the horses mouth as you want to get! :lol:

Speaking of the horse's mouth, the salesman was lucky not to just get John's head groom on the phone.  Or his butler, etc. :lol:


2007 350Z - Who needs Blue Planet when you've got a Blue Zed?
2004 Yaris 1.3 - Or a "Blue" Yaris? That still delights after four short years.

Likewise.  Although it probably explains why he/she didn't take the call . . .
