Spoke to Doston today. The bayside blue 110k kilometer car he decided to pass on as it had some rust issues and didn’t want the car. He did let me know that he has another bayside blue early 1999 vspec 74k kilometer car coming in later this month that he will be inspecting. He doesn’t have many details on it but from what he knows of the owner it is well cared for and if he thinks it’s a very solid collector worthy car he will let me know. I’m in first position for a bayside blue car he gets so if it works out then I’ll move on it. The 2000 one he had a few weeks ago went to the other person in first position so now I’m slotted in next.

he did share with me this car but since it’s a dealer sale it’s going to cost me 2x the commission since he needs to make something as well. Also the dealer is known for not being willing to sell for export so we’d have That to contend with. So I’ll pass on this until he can get the other car later in the month, but if this car sits for a while then we may be able to work out a good sale price to break about even.

Would suck to pay t ice the commission, but that’s a decent example for sure.

Congrats, how much has that car appreciated in the last 5 years?
5 years ago maybe about 90-100k for this configuration. I’m hoping to see the same appreciation but it may level out for a few years. Interestingly enough the demand isn’t from us buyers. Most cars are being sold and exported to Australia, New Zealand, UK, etc. the demand hasn’t seen its height yet.

Well fuck this is all so exciting! What kind of mods are you thinking?
Not surprised Australia has a lot of the interest. They are so popular over there.

So the car has the following for cosmetic/aero.
  • NISMO Z-Tune Type Bumper
  • NISMO Z-Tune Type Fender
  • NISMO side skirt
  • NISMO rear under spoiler
So my thoughts are that the car could continue the nismo trend and go for the following if it would be ‘value add’ for the car. It’s not cheap but the waiting period for the hood is 2 years so I’ve got the time on my side for that. Which may be increasingly uncommon as these cars approach 25 year legal. Not sure if I’m missing anything but let me know if I’m missing any key items
  • NISMO CF Z-Tune hood
  • NISMO Intercooler
  • NISMO gauge cluster
  • NISMO gt4 wheels.
  • NISMO CF front lip
