It won’t be eligible for import until august 2024 based on its first registration date. So it’s going to be a long 3 years. Not sure if or when I’ll make it out to Japan but if I do I’ll get some video and pics. Flights are right around $4K

Can you reserve the plate "JDM AF" three years early? If so get on it

if you look at all the GTR ztune the plate backer is molded into the bumper so I’ll just remove the plate or put a smaller decorative one.

It’s covered under their embrella policy for all the cars they are storing. I do have to pay a monthly fee for storage but payed that all up front as part of the purchase of the car

Too fucking cool. Congrats man!

I personally like all of the NISMO stuff on the car. Gives it a lot of character and toughens them up a lot.

Are the GT4 wheels like what you posted in the picture showing the front license plate bracket a few posts up? If so, YUP.

exactly the wheels, intercooler and hood I’d like to go with. I agree it adds so much more to the car. I have to order the hood now so it’s ready in 2 years. I think everything else isn’t on the same waiting period.

Trust me I know but I’ve seen car worse condition cars going for even more so I get what I wanted at a price i am comfortable with.

No disrespect on my end about the condition of the car. Looks great ( i'm suprised the offset on the wheel is what it is but aftermarket wheels will fix that ).
I don't think many of us on here know who is and who isnt a 'high roller.'

Congrats on the purchase !

That's not a bad price at all, honestly. Right color, right condition... If anything I'd say the period correct aftermarket stuff reinforces the value if not adds to it. It'll be a $275,000 car out of the container once it's legal stateside IMO :dunno:

I like the wheels but agree that a different setup would be better.

So what you're saying is I have 3 years to move into a house near you.

I must be your neighbor.
