Hi guys, I am looking to buy a 32,000 mile 2015 Nissan GT-R (premium) from a private seller.  The seller received the car from a court battle with the original owner of the car so he has no knowledge of the car or emotional attachment.  So before confirmation of purchase I am taking the car to a Nissan dealership to get it inspected.


The car has been sitting in the new owners lot for quite some time, and when initially looking at the car I noticed that the rotors (appeared to be) quite grooved.  So I am taking that into account in my offer to the seller.  Do any of you know if it is possible to machine the stock OEM rotors?  I am pretty sure you can't, but just wondering if it was possible in order to save myself a little money and not have to shell out $1000+ for a new set.


The car seems to drive smooth and I didn't feel any suspension issues or odd engine noises.  If you all have any recommendation on anything else I should be on the lookout for or any questions I should ask the dealer please chime in.

Yes, one can machine (lathe) the rotors.
Any reputable shop can do this as long as the minimum thickness of the rotor is above specifications.

Ill see if I can find that for you.
