    Never knew they had different sized alloys front and rear. Can't even tell in that photo.

    Thanks for the kind comments all.

    Plate won’t be on long as I’ve got my private reg to put on once the paperwork comes back.

    Yeah the style of the plate is weird, I’ve seen similar on Aventadors etc. I will go for a smaller rectangle plate for sure.

    Yeah the GTR steering felt a little over assisted tbh.

    Gearbox doesn’t really bother with 7 through to 9 until you get to motorway speeds, although you can select them manually if you wish.

    So are you still getting the Supra too?

    I like how you are keeping it all Japanese.

    Yes mate. Test drive is on the 25th at Thruxton.

    Of course, Jap cars are my favourite.

    Nooooice! Well jel! How much kiddo?

    Gtr "handles well but doesn't feel it" is because of all the computronics, old skylines had similar feel but were never deathly fast so quickly learnable (?? What's the correct word?)


    Plate is horrendous but can't do much about it really except leave it off. Yeh, definitely leave it off and throw it on your windscreen when you park up.

    Do think the NSX is too quickly snubbed just because it's a Honda. To me, it looks rather epic and is a proper tour-de-force of the current hybrid tech.

    Perfect colour combination too. :cool:

    Beautiful although I’m surprised your affair with the GTR was so relatively short lived.

    Enjoy it! :)

    This is a car which never seemed to set the world on fire...I seem to remember it getting a kind of "meh" response when it came out. But I'm not sure why - I think it looks fantastic and I love the idea of hybrid technology in sportscars. Enjoy :)

    Really nice, probably one of the only super car's i actually like. I've 0 interested in the usual showy Ferrari's or whatever and wouldn't even stop to look at them but that is really cool :cool:
