  • R33 gts

    Hey guys,

    Need some advice on a skyline I've been looking at, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    http://www.carsales.com.au/private/d...-1995-13467458

    I see that its almost at 200,000 Ks which means major service and I'll ask for receipts for the clutch and tyres.
    Any common faults/problems on r33s I should know about when I go and check the car out?

    I would've had a look on skylines Australia before posting but I keep getting an error on every link on the site so I need some help from mightymods.

      With almost 200,000 I'd want the timing belt changed, with proof.
      If you test drive. Take it down a rough road and listen/feel for worn suspension. Thuds and excess noise isn't good.
      Paint seems to be an issue on these cars now, mainly on upper surfaces so check for peeling clearcoat.

          Price can be higher for NA cars due to p plater tax. Seems to affect quite a few cars.

            Price is way too high. Not a fan of the kit and the wheels are horrid but each to their own
            Nothing is fool proof to a well accomplished fool.

            Some people are like clouds, once they f*ck off it's a beautiful day.

              Seems to be a pretty bad price by the sound of it, what should be a good value for a skyline like this?

              The first thing that went through my mind when I saw the ad was changing the wheels haha

                Even though it's a newer model r33, it has the common problem of too many K's on the engine. I wouldn't pay over 5k for it.

                I got mine for 6k and that's in tassie where prices are double, also it has a lot more mods then this white one and it only had 130xxxk's.

                  Now i've thought about it my friend got a 93 r33 with dual airbags and the extras for 5k it had 150,000k's.

                  If I was you this is probably a minimal price car with it's bad modifications of <4500

                  Want my opinion? I love my car, it's pretty much all I wanted for my first/second car. If I had the money over again I would probably go for something that chews less fuel.

                    The guy said he wouldn't go below 7 grand, I'll have to find a way to bring the price down other than other peoples previous buys

                      Tacky Mods. P Plater Taxed... its way too expensive for what its worth... you could probably get a gts-t for that price (or an r32 gts-4). dont bother unless he will go below $5k... you'll easily have a better offer come up soon because these cars are only really kept for the p plate years and sold after (cheaper to sell an NA and buy a turbo than to swap in a turbo)...
                      i asked god for a bike and soon realized god doesnt work that way. so i stole a bike and asked for forgivness,
