I suppose you'd have to factor in the price of a second windscreen wiper :(

Most cars are A to B. Mine is A to Z.

To be honest, 60m Yen, that's not 'that' bad of a price considering what you get.  (circa £400k in real money).

...plus tax, plus delivery, plus any 'optional/spare parts' (eg the second windscreen wiper and maybe a stereo and a satnav and one of Paul S's reversing cameras :) ). I reckon you're thinking of buying one, cos you're doing the bloke thing of convincing yourself it's cheaper than it really is.

I'm the king of Man Maths :lol: 

 

I really enjoy the GT3 series, particularly partial the the Z4, but would also happily accept the GTR.

I'd like to say the (normal) GTR would be the next step up for me in the car world, coming from the MKII Nismo, but will need to see what happens over the next few years. Hopefully business goes well :D

My favourite GTR of all time is the one in this video. Remember seeing it at Silverstone and the sound was just biblical, loved it.

PS. A couple of other uhh, interesting cars in the vid. Music stops after 30 seconds so don't worry. Plenty of GTR noise goodness.

Built for speed, not comfort?

 

As for that jalopy in the fourth picture?  I don't really care.


2007 350Z - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2004 Yaris 1.3 - It takes a little longer, but you'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
