1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GTR

Recommended Posts

I have decided to sell my R34. I am selling it because I fancy a R35 :)

 

This car was imported for me last year by JM-Imports & I am the first UK owner. Upon entry to the UK it was undersealed & also had a Cat1 Cobra alarm & immobilizer fitted.

 

The car is currently showing 54700 miles but as this is a Nismo item I am not sure of the exact mileage. There is some service history that came with the car & is showing services up to around 100K KM.

 

Since owning the car I have run it always on either Shell V-Power or Tesco 99 fuel. I have always warmed the car up & cooled it down on every use. I have never raced or tracked this car.

 

It has a MOT until June 2013 & is taxed until March 2013.

 

In August 2011 the passenger side rear wheel bearing was replaced.

 

In September 2011 I had the car serviced by RSP. During this service I also had the timing belt changed. The oil & filter was changed again last week at 360 Motorsport.

 

I have carried out a few select modifications to this car since owning it. Its running pretty much stock power & has no silly body kits.

 

Modifications

 

* Carbon fibre V-Spec style front lip & diffuser

* Xenon headlights

* Nismo smoked front & side repeaters

* 19" Varrstoen ES 2.2.2 (19*9.5 +12) Wheels finished in Midnight Purple (265/35/19 Yokohama Advan V103 tyres fitted around 500 miles ago)

* Purple Muteki wheel nuts

* HSD Coilovers

* Cusco Rear Camber Arms

* Cusco carbon fibre strut brace

* Attain Hicas Lock Out Bar

* HKS Type 0 Turbo Timer

* Pioneer F900BT headunit with reversing camera

* Mac Audio speakers fitted in front & rear

* White Nismo 320KMH dials

* Illuminated key barrel

* HKS White Gear Knob

* Nismo Floor Mats

* V-Spec aluminum pedals & foot rest

* Carbon Superior Seat Covers (Drivers seat has a bit of wear)

* Alcantara Gear & handbrake Gaitors

* ARC Radiator & Oil Caps

* Zealou5 Titanium bonnet stay

* ARC Oil catch can/washer tank - Can has had 2 AN ports welded on to it in order to run braided hoses direct to the rocker covers.

* Rocker Covers have been painted in House of Kolor Wild Cherry with a HKS engine plaque & had 2 -10 AN ports welded in place.

* HKS SPF kit with new purple filters fitted around 500 Miles ago

* KTS Intercooler hard pipe kit - The top pipe has now been replaced with a HKS item

* HKS SSQV 3 with hardpipe

* Baffled & polished TT pipe

* Polished plenum

* Polished rear turbo pipe

* Apexi Downpipes

* New Era decat pipe - has an additional bung welded in to run a wideband gauge.

* Tomei titanium exhaust

 

Maintenance

 

* Plenum & turbos have had new gaskets fitted

* Rocker covers have had new seals fitted

* CAS had new gasket & washers fitted

* New battery fitted in June 2012

* MFD screen was replaced last year after developing the 3 white line fault

 

Bad points

 

* There is a small patch of rust around the boot brake light

* There is a bit of touch up paint applied to the boot after removing the GTR badge

* Drivers seat has a bit of wear

* Oil pressure gauge has stopped working since last service - Traced to a faulty sender & will be replaced next month.

 

This car drives perfectly. Both turbos are working well & have very little play in them. Engine pulls very strongly & makes no knocking noises or any other strange noises.

Fair play Ian, I know you've wanted an R35 for a while. This R34 of yours is cracking mate, I can't imagine you'll have too many issues finding a buyer who appreciates it :thumbs:

Thanks Struan :D

 

TBH I'm not that bothered about selling it :lol: Even if it does sell its gonna be a year before I get into a R35. Gonna sort out moving house first & get settled in & then get either a R35 or maybe even another R34 :blush:

But I need to save for a year to make up the difference & if I keep the R34 then I'll just spend my money on that :blush:

GLWTS Ian - although I agree with Chris - if I had had a garage I would've sorned Saffy rather than sold her - at least then you're not tempted to keep spending money on it :shrug:

I had to chose between a house and an r34, I put most of the money down on house deposit and bought my zed instead. Maybe in a couple of years

Car has now had a new oil pressure sender fitted & has good pressure at warm idle, cold idle & under boost (will get a video of it once I get it back). Rear GTR badge has also been refitted.

 

I can put some stock parts back onto the car if anyone wanted to negotiate on the price. I may also take a cheap UK 350Z in part Ex :)

Defo an investment this car!! Won't lose money, very sought after. I've heard there's only around a 100 genuine R34 GTRs in this country.

 

One of my fav cars of all time.... I almost don't want to own it because I hold it in such high regard. I don't think I could afford to own one of these at the moment.
