Hey!
I have a 2012 GTR in India and Nissan India doesn't service the GTRs as the car hasn't been launched there officially.
My car has done around 1000 miles and I'm planning on getting a guy down from UAE or Singapore to get the optimization done.
What do you guys think?
How important is the optimization for the car? WIll there be a lot of difference after?

its basically a check up.. ins alot of cases nothing is really changed or optimized....

they check the engine intake banks to see if they are balanced they check the idle RPM....

and check the transmission settings... those are the specific things that the nissan software is required for.... other than that there is an alignment check and you dont need nissan for that as the specs can be found on this site...

so while its good to have this service and yes you need to eventually get it done.... in your situation since your out of warranty anyway at 1K is it life or death it gets done... probably not

no you want really feel any difference afterwards...you really only would if something was wrong and then corrected

Since India doesn't have the GTR then will your service tech bring what he needs like Consul hardware and will he work at Nissan dealership? Or does the dealership have all it needs already, just the trained GTR service tech?

At 1000 miles-

Some owners choose to do first oil change- not a bad idea just to get break in oil out of the car early- then change oil again at about 3000-4000 miles.
POS check just to make sure nothing is out of line- nothing bad about that- and Nissan requires this of the GTR service centers to keep warranty on new GTRs
Check alignment for better tire wear
Good to check fluid levels

You'll have to figure out where to do your servicing and how often- good to work with one trusted shop.

Thanks for the advice. I will think over this and then take a final decision.

The technician said he would bring everything required for the job. I was planning on getting the stuff done at a Mercedes Benz or a BMW service center in India itself.

The technician would also stamp in in the warranty booklet and the car would still remain under warranty.

If i bring the guy to India to service my car I will still be under warranty as he would stamp and sign in the warranty booklet and his trip to India would be an official once authorized by Nissan.

Get a Cobb with TCM and you can do the clutch relearn anytime.
You can use one on the Cobb canned tunes based on octane available to free-up H/TQ.

Is this true that you can only get the 1000mile check up at the dealership where you bought the car? I bought my car from a dealer 25miles away bc they were the only one that had the car and color i was looking for. Went to my local nissan dealer and asked if they serviced GTR's and they said yes. I asked if the would do my 1000mile service and they said "no". I would have to take it to the original dealer. That sucks!! I think Nissan dealership services are crappy. People who can afford to buy GTR's come from luxury markets such as BMW Audi and Lexus ect...Nissan needs to restructure their dealership services to compete. After this car...I would never buy another Nissan.

You should be able to get this done at any Nissan dealership that is able to service GTRs.
