Hi

I searched around the forums and only found bits and pieces of what to look for when buying a used GTR. I wanted to start this thread to help me and the community for things to look out for when buying used.

So far this is what I have come up with, please provide any other information and I can add it to this post. Thanks

1. Get Consult3 report - What do you look for exactly?
2. Get Flickr report - What do you look for exactly?
3. Jerky shift to 2nd gear on LC1-3
4. All recalls done as per http://www.gtrlife.c...ecall-database/
5. Change in boost, can you check this easily onboard?

visually inspect the transmission and LSD's for leaking oil and sometimes cracks near rear LSD (might be on top, eg not visible).

it has to be a GTR certified tech and they look to see how high the temps got,if any over heat triggers where flagged in engine/tranny,how high the boost and to see how many time the car has been launched,etc
no you cant see the highest boost level the car has done on board

Bellhousing, need an aftermarket which is now found here in Europe.

Steering lock, Had to bypass.

Gearbox valvebody which was clogged, Had to clean it.

Handbrake bypass to use the AUX input.

The rest no problems.
