    Guys
    I just bought a 2008 Black edition and will pay for it when I get back into KL on the 6th Feb, and hopefully get the car just after Chinese New Year. I plan to get the GTR600 upgrade done along with the 2012 transmission upgrade and that will be it…..for now anyway.
    I look forward to chatting with you guys once I get the car, as I am a complete newbie to Nissan GTR
    Later Neil

    I love GTR especially R35 but I can't afford it for the time being. Guys, would like to ask your opinion, 4k monthly salary is it enough to own R35? :idea:

    Errr, you serious mate? With 300K++ you'd get yourself a 2008 GTR with mileage below 10k.
    With your salary, loan from banks might be a problem. Even if you got a loan from the bank, how long do you think it takes to clear off a debt this huge? The annual interest is like around 2.3% for a maximum period of 9 years if the loan is 300k and the estimated monthly repayment is like what? 3k++? You'll barely survive with the remaining salary which is prolly less than 1k for sure. Even if you can survive with that amount of money per month, what about road tax? Maintenance? Minyak? Tukar transmission oil? 4k monthly salary buying a GTR, in a nutshell I call this "Madness".

    After finish typing all these, I realized that you might be a troll.. Ohwell :smokin:

    If u check the regular financial consultancy, ur car payment is advisable to be 20% of ur net income. If u plan to buy 2008 GTR with monthly instalment of 3k, ur net income per month shld be rm15k, for not to burden ur debts.

    hey guy, is skyline gtt R34 still worth buying these days? will the car be too antique to buy? even the latest version 2002 is more than 10 years... and does it worth to be a daily transport or just a weekend hobby?

    antique? haha.. I still find R32 and R33 very attractive bro.. But it depends on self preference.
    That's why you need check the chassis and etc. are still in good conditions. And the parts for GTT are not hard to get I believe.
    Yea agree with you, the GTT looks nice indeed (like GT 500)

    why choose a GTR and worry about maintenance? if worry about maintenance - buy stock cars that comes with warranty ;)

    However - if maintenance is a concern, i think the ONE thing u should worry about ...is fuel consumption.
