    hi guys, im jonathan from dorset and have just bought me a GTiR.
    didnt know where to post this as i couldnt find a hello section.
    well have been a nissan man for many years owning a few r32 skylines, a nissan leopard and a few other oddities, then something came over me and i bought a mazda mx5, but couldnt get away from a turbo`d nissan so this is wat i bought.

    Do you have the sales history?

    I remember test driving one in Edinburgh with the same wheels on it, and it was black. By Any chance could it be the same one. I remember it pulling amazing, although that was about 8 years ago. ;-)

    dont know the exact spec, seller was a bit vague said power was 246-300 but am doubting that. had some suspect bits on it, manual boost controler-now in the bin. badly plumbed in boost gauge-bin. just want to get it up together over the winter and enjoy driving it. then get it rolling roaded next year. not after a big power car, been there done that, just want a good reliable car that i can enjoy, basically the car has been essex boy`d and i want a good standard car with a bit of spice.

    no history im afraid apart from old mot`s and i my boy has hidden them somewhere(probably covered in crayon) i`ll search the toy boxes and have a look. defo hasnt had a colour change, if it has it was a full strip down respray.
