Awesome car, with a serious image
Absolutely nothing has gone wrong, although the front suspension bushes on the lower toe control arms will need replacing for the MOT.
WOW, quick, this car is seriously quick. I love the speed this car will accelerate and shed speed.
Nissan claim only 250 horse power for this car, but it must be more.
It will out run a BMW 328 or 330, and costs less new and has more image than either.
I had a XR 4x4 before this, and although I miss the security of the 4 wheel drive, I wouldn`t change it.
The interior may not have a lot of room in the back, but the stereo is great.
The handling is great, but you have to be careful in the wet, as you will get wheel spin in 3rd gear (sometimes 4th if it`s really slippery). And that`s with 235 width tyres fitted.
People don`t know the Nissan Skyline range also has lower performance models, with 2 wheel drive and anything from a 2 litre non turbo to the full 2.6, twin turbo four wheel drive version.
This is the only car I`ve known that can have grown men bow down and kneel in front of it. I mainly got it over other performance cars I could have bought because was I got sick of the Sierra, and losing it in the supermarket car park. So, I wanted something rare, that you wouldn`t see thousand of others on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
