    Hi,

    great to hear :)

    Where do you send your car for service ? do you change your brake/transmission/differential oil so far?

    Where do you get those parts?


    Best regards,

    Normal servicing part is easy to get.

    Air filter not mistake. Used as same as 370z
    Oil filter same as Sylphy or cefiro both size can used.
    ATF used J-MATIC , try to search shop had service using J MATIC , else u need to buy 18 liter.
    Differential oil, may try red line 75-90w GL-5

    Aircond belt and alternator belt locally have stock.

    Hope this help:)

    shlee76,

    Interested in the Skyline V36 250GT 2007, just checking with you as current user, if the car will run on RON95 petrol?

    Also interested to know about parts and servicing before deciding on purchase.

    Please share your experience?

    Thanks.

    Big-E,

    Yes, the car will run on RON95 :)

    Don't worry about the service parts, can get in KL.

    shlee76,

    Thanks for your feed back, It would've been a deal breaker if the V36 was not compatible with RON 95 petrol, as the 2005 Toyota Mark X.

    Care to share where in KL can we get parts please?

    We can take the matter off line if you're not comfortable about posting it here.
