I suppose between steps 5 and 6, I"d also probably wash the car and look to use something like Gyeon Prep to make sure all oils, residue and polishing dust is completely gone.

I'm sorry - i was trying to be inclusive of both what the car includes, as well as concerns and asking for opinions- i'll try again

 

It's at a MB dealership - the tuner, who i talked to yesterday, told me the guy traded it in because he wasn't used to the noises that GTR transmissions make, so he wasn't comfortable.  I know that stock ones make lots of chatter and noise - are built ones worse?  I would maybe have red flags, but the tuner seemed to just shake it off, and he last tuned the car less than 2 months ago... 

 

Anyhow, when i first got pics of it, i asked the sales guy - does it have mods, other than the exhaust i can see? He said, "i don't know honestly."  So they have no idea that its so heavily modded.  I only knew it b/c there's a sticker in the rear 1/4 window that says "Stage6 motorsports" .  So i contacted those guys, and they knew which car it was and sent me toward the tuner.  That's where i got the info that its a built motor and built transmission, heavily modified.  I also talked to Coggin Nissan, who recently had it in and replaced the 'drive shaft seals' ... that's all the service manager could tell me.  And that otherwise it was OK, but cautioned me about it being modified, and that it had been noted several times in the service history that it wasn't stock.

 

So i'll try details again - 2015 Red GTR - Ivory premium interior - local Jacksonville trade-in - all work done in that area.  totally stock looking (though prev owner may have had wheels on it). 37K miles - not real sure what else to say, as i want to be respectful of the tuner and not use their name publicly unless they allow.  I know that's not a lot, but i'm hoping there aren't a lot of 1000hp red/ivory GTR's in the Jacksonville area.
