I love GTRs but your M plus 50k cash for a GTR with 21.5k miles isn't exactly a good deal... You could find a GTR with that kind of mileage for about 55k right now. Remember, the GTR is a super car and will need some major servicing soon at that mileage. So prepare to pay some super car maintenance costs.

I'm not sure what the GTR's servicing intervals are, but if you put it in the same super car category as a Lamborghini or Ferrari, then it will at that mileage. Then again it's a Nissan and could probably go longer without maintenance. Nonetheless, servicing costs are ridiculous with these cars, it's not like servicing an M.

Just an FYI my friends father has this car, an idea of service costs for you

Every 10,000kms oil change - $300
Every 20,000kms general service/inspection - $700
Every 30,000kms - major service - $4000

So be prepared to spend between $5000-$6000 a year in maintenance. Prices may be a little less in the USA but probably not to far off that amount.

Brake job costs about $4,000, that's changing both rotors and pads. Tires are $2,000+ every 5-10,000 miles. God, I love the GTR!!! Get him to go down to 40k and go for it!!!

If i buy i'd keep for a year, two at most and probably put less than 10k kms on it so let just hope the current owner had a service recently lol.
I usually keep my cars for 2-3 years and never had to do brakes..! My M3 is probably on factory brakes and they are still good, not sure on that 2 other owners before me.

I know i need to be at the track every weekend!

Do we have any gt-r owners on this forum? Shi t would be nice to be the first

If he did the servicing at 30k kms then go for it... but I doubt he did though. People usually sell their super cars at the 20k miles mark because they don't want to pay to service them. Also remember that after 2 track days, you're going to need a new set of brakes... if even that.

I'm guessing that maintenance costs are bleeding the current owner.

GT-R maint. is a pain in the ass. However for $50K+ the M is not quite a bad deal. The M is good for a daily. GT-R will be your daily or you have another for daily? GT-R is not good for daily IMO.
