Hi all from Perth Australia!
joined because i am someone that likes in depth knowledge of vehicles before i purchase and i guess it is nearly like everything these days, information is easy to access when you start wandering forums, youtube and good old google.
I joined this forum as it looks to be the most concise and knowledgeable with a lot of good tech.
I haven't purchased an R35 as yet but have been looking for about 2 and a bit months now, and it is not very often that GTDR's come up in our city very often, especially when you are looking for specifics of 12+ and either black/silver or white as last choice.
last week i looked at a 2013 DBA in ivory white, it ticks all the boxes accept for a small dent that sits in the left rear quarter panel near the side reflector. It has only done 13 000km ( 8000miles?) from new so its really a brand new car, interior spotless.
The thing that makes me sad after doing research is how the second market is in Aus compared to the US. makes me really wish i lived there! second hand average price for a 12-13 GTR in stock/ish form can be between 110 000AUD (82k US?) and 120 000 AUD (90k US?) and i read most at this sort of age in the US fetch low 60's USD?
Any way, i look forward to owning a GTR soon, im definitely oriented towards Track/road racing as opposed to drag.
A 750-900hp Track/Street GTR sounds pretty good, but by the looks 3/4 of owners end up with 1000+ hp somehow haha!
I look forward to sharing and being part of the community.
