Hi! Jaysquare,

Let me guess, if you're the lucky guy who got the Pearl White, full black leather interior with BOSE from Rupee in Seremban?

I am still waiting for my car to be registered as of today.

When I saw that car and absolutely loved it, but the sales guy told me he just sold it!!! Looks like you beaten me to it.

And you've got an IS250 too??? :adore:

I initially was targeting the IS, but prices remained on the high side.

What's your take on Skyline vs IS?

Hopefully can get my car today, or maybe tomorow. Then can :driver:

havent driven the car enough to compare the two but i feel the skyline is definitely sportier than the lexus, with more power being available especially at lower revs. maybe im a bit biased towards the lexus cos i prefer a more confortable ride and better quality interior. BTW theres no BOSE audi in the Skyline and the audio is quite horrible actually. but in terms of value for money def id take the Skyline over the Lexus. got your car yet?

Hi!

Just got the V36 yesterday evening. Initial impression is smoothnes with more than ample power. NVH is superb compared to any of my previuos rides. It's got so many toys that I have not started exploring the car yet. My misus however, have it mostly figured out by now!

Love the music box feature, as my car came pre-loaded with a bunch of J-Pop songs, courtesy of the previous Japanese owner. If there's one thing I suspect would be the Skyline's achilles heel would be the front suspension bushes and ball joint, which would wear out more often then the other parts. It just doesn't feel as solid as it should be.

Thanks for sharing between the IS vs V36.

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.
Who says Mark X is not compatible with RON95? :biggrin:
Many Mark X owners (including myself) have been using RON95, there's even some who already installed bolt-on supercharger kit and still running on RON95!

U6E5t,

My interest was first on the Mark X, you may not believe that now. However, a Mark X owner himself, and a great mechanic that I trust(same guy) told me so, that his Mark X requires RON97 to run smoothly. Hence I was steered towards the Nissan Skyline 250GT.

xiswell, there's a group of us V36 guys on whatsapp group. Please give me your hp no. and I can add you in to the group. The V36 shares most engine parts with the local Teana 2.5L and chasis/suspension parts with the Fairlady 350Z & Skyline coupe(non GT-R version). Parts are a plenty on e-bay and cheap too, but shipping cost is high. So far new service able parts are available locally, and there are enough local mechanics who can deal with the V36. I have only one advise for you, keep the car stock and it'll be trouble free, as adding on electronics is NOT recomended, due to it's sensitive electronic control.

Hope this helps.

Hi guys. New here.
I'm considering to buy a 2007 v36 recond.
Read all the post and this car seems promising and easy maintenance.
Anyone can tell me more about the do's and donts of this car and any reputable workshop in kl?

Badtz Mark,

Not sure traction control is standard on the common V-spec cars. There's an anti slip control though.

But Traction Control is certainly on the S-spec cars, which are fully loaded in stock form.
