    Another - what would you get for 30-50k post.

    GTR is a MUST own car for me! Had mine 6 years and loved it. Once I got it where I wanted it, the running costs were not too bad. 2011 car is serviced once a year, so I would be aiming for that, which is high 40s. Servicing is not that costly, it’s modifying and repairing that is expensive. AMV8 may well be next on my list, but I doubt I will be owning a car for a little while. However, I have looked at and am seriously considering another GTR for when I settle down in France, as an all round car, but not as a track car (that’s too expensive).

    Its that time...

    Well as some of you may have seen from other posts of mine, I will be going overseas, to move, to travel, to explore, etc. Tomorrow is my last day and I am not sure why but I dont feel anything about it, maybe its just because SO much is changing, so much to think about that I have decided not to worry about it. But oh well, onto the good news.... I am officially retiring from IT work, tomorrow is my last day - 10 days before my 39th birthday!!! No idea what I will be doing with my life, but commuting, sitting in an office, having the same arguments with different companies about HA/DR and security strategies will not be it! The route:- 2 weeks in Lincolnshire (best part of the trip) to see my mom before departing 2 months traveling around France (joy of having a French girlfriend) 2.5 months in Japan (taking orders ;)) 2-4 weeks in Taiwan (less traveled and looks awesome) 3-4 days in Hong Kong (just because...) 30 days in Bali (well to relax of course) And then finally back to France (some time in June 2018) where we will be staying for about 6-8 months while we make some money and work on our next trip The Datsun 240z and Ford Escort MK1 will both be getting completed and sold (sadly :(), however it does mean that I can buy a few cars in France first will be an old twingo, after that something like a 260z (not as expensive), Alfa, etc and see what life in the south of France is like. All this does mean that I will become rather quiet on here, but dont forget, I will be watching...............

    How much!!!!!

    Had a discussion with a few fellow GTR owners a few weeks ago and quite honestly, I think that the price in the UK is artificially high as there is 1 person that seems to keep buying all the good imports before they arrive, he has a large collection of R32s and R34s. Honestly believe that the prices of the R34s are a bubble, because even the "shitbox" ones are getting high money, which is just silly considering how much will need to go into it to rebuild it properly.

    How much!!!!!

    R34 GTRs IMO that is a bubble Porsche old air cooled ones (I see them on the road quite a bit) NSXs most definitely Ford Cosworths

    ITS HERE....

    I honestly dont think the pics do it justice.... I was always 50/50 on the DB11 from the pics, but when I saw it for real, it was awesome! Audi R8 is boring - looks like the TT on the road BMW 540C - I wouldnt even consider buying one, just a road going barge And lastly, thats yellow, not green..................

    ITS HERE....

    I like aspects of it, but dislike others.... the grille is horrible and cheap! Exhausts I noticed immediately as well.... but good performance figures. I am guessing that it would be a similar price to the next GTR (which may or may not be hybrid powered and 700bhp) in which case, the price is quite good. Aston has more of brand image than the GTR, so I think it should do quite well. I prefer the old one though, so will find myself one of them soon (ish)!
