Dude no... this is one of the lowest model skylines you can get... u don't even kno the true potential of a REAL skyline... get a GTR R34 VSPEC NUR2 then go ahead and try and diss that car...

This is true, these are such good cars; this review seems to sound a wee bit biased?

Wow, you definitely landed a duff one there mate. I know many people with them, and they've been nothing but reliable.
I own a 96 GTS with a few engine mods, which takes the power up from 250bhp (std) to around 300hp at 0.5 bar of boost. I can hand on heart say that with these simple mods, it's almost impossible to go quicker for less!
The only thing that lets the car down is how scary they can be to drive in the wet (due to no traction control) especially when they're up on power. In the dry, with a coil over suspension kit (£500), no fwd car will ever outcorner it. Not a chance in hell!

Dude, you must be thinking about a GTR. How you said your car is supposed to beat anything on the road. A GTS25t won't beat the likes of Ferraris or anything like that; maybe it might if it was heavily tuned, but never standard.. but a GTR (2600cc twin turbo SUPER CAR) can when it's had a bit of tweaking, and if you want a GTR then you are going to have to spend a lot more money.

If you are so against Skylines, why did you buy it in the first place?? I own a 1995 R33 GTST and it has 120000 kms on it. Not only is it reliable, it beats most standard performance cars (F6 Typhoon, GTS Clubsports for example). I have a few small performance mods, and I ran a 12.9 pass on crappy street tyres.
These cars are great. I have NEVER had a problem with mine. If you get a decent tune by a reputable dyno place or tuner, you should have no problems if you have the right mods done for your desired power output. It's only when you cut corners or go with the cheap way out when you will come across problems.
For your car to have that many problems with it after that amount of km's traveled, you must have been thrashing it everyday, or had a very bad tune (if its even been tuned).
I have been very happy with mine, no problems or grief. I'm sure a lot of other people will tell you the same thing.

Skylines are bullet proof man. I have owned about 6 of them in the last 12 years and they would have to be one of the best bang for your buck cars around!

Does this sound like a good buy?
1995 Skyline, blitz inter-cooler, adjustable shocks, violit crumble blue metallic paint, two big subs in boot body kit, interior standard, pod, 123000 on the clock, 290 hp, $9000.

Sounds unusual, usually one of the hardest wearing performance cars you can buy. I work for an engine importer and with all the modded ones around, I very very very rarely sell one for replacement, usually for conversion, I've owned an RB for the last 7 or so years, and have no current plan to change! RB all the way, cheers.

I am the proud owner of a 95 R33 GTST. Like all the other comments have said, you must have bought a molested one. I have owned mine for over 3 months now and haven't had an issue (standard apart from exhaust, air filter and wheels). The car has 170,000 on it. It still drives great and has plenty of power; it will get you into trouble in more ways than one if you don't respect it.
I also have owned an R34 GT-Four for two years now, which converted me to the RB. I will never go back to my Commodore. Japanese all the way.
