I think the weather actually lends well to the pictures. Love it in red, the boot is stunning and is that the real plate?!

Nice car and yes the weather (no glare) helps.

Did these ever come with a sunroof?

He had to do a lot of work to get the clouds looking like that... they were quite flat and grey before editing.

Not my real plate.

depends.... I value mine higher as I am the only owner, one of the last registered (2010 car, late 2011 reg) and have slowly modded the car (to what I consider the perfect level).

Nice shots, like the moody sky

Is shocking to think that maybe in a few years you could sell a 240z and go out and buy a secondhand R35 ! what with prices on the rise and early R35 going for around 32k , then again you could probably squeeze to a R34 though these days anyway on 240z money but deffo a R33

More than likely.... but the GTR prices are holding well, especially the well maintained, modded and history like mine. Yes R35s are available at 32k, but most should not be touched with a barge pole. Most of the cheap ones come on the GTROC and so far all have a dodgy history (accident, owners, lack of servicing, etc). The well maintained ones like mine are holding value and may actually have gone up in value. Its not why I bought the, so its just a bonus for me

R34s are holding value quite well and some of the special editions are going up in value

Heres the GTROC thread:-

I see what you mean about the cheaper R35's, I haven't done to much research into them, as I don't want to tempt myself to much,

I think that R32's will prob rise a bit now as they are now legibly to import to the US to

Then definitely dont go out in one........... that sold it for me

Just saw a white 09 GTR (premium edition) with stage 1 mods, 2 owners and 30k miles sell for 38k to a trader and that only took 6 days. Then it was on their website for 2 days and sold for 42k.

The 32s are becoming more popular, a lot more "raw" driving experience and so good mods out there.

Been out at Castle Combe in a R34 running about 550 but setup for this track and it was immense, still love them.......

I bought my 34 in '06 and sold in '08. Sold for £100 less than I paid for it and its still worth the same money now. It was a bayside blue UK car with good plate on it. Was going to get a 32 but the prices have gone up a fair bit since then. I'll stick with 240's now.

I know this feeling all to well. I must resist, I must resist. With a kid on the way, it wouldn't be ideal lol.
