Bye all

Thanks for all your help and advice

I have decided to buy a Nissan GTS-T Skyline manual. The way I figure it, I can spend a third of my budget on Nissan Mods and it will go faster than the XR8 would of had I spent my whole budget on it.

And why exactly does that mean you are saying goodbye to us.

You have to do better than that.

good luck with you new car, whatever tickles your fancy

my basic theory

some cars (XR8s) will be faster than mine
some cars will not

Live it

Ive just spent about a fifth on my new toy, than what you would pay for a nissan, and it will go MUCH MUCH MUCH more harder than the Nissan.

Just remember, just because it goes faster, harder, better, doesnt mean that you will be happier with it.

Also, check the Insurance for the Nissan. If your happy paying 1/4 to 1/2 of the purchase price for insurance, then the Nissans are a terrific Buy !!!!!

As I said, my new Suzuki goes Much Much Much harder than my Fairmont Ghia, but I would much Prefer to own, Drive, live with the Ghia than the Suzuki an a day to day basis.

Anyway, sorry to see you go, and no hard feelings !

Thanks for the positive feedback. And one day, Xyphoid - maybe we could see just how far the Nissan will leave your Suzuki behind!

good luck with it mate! at least you're buying a skyline and not a friggin holden. i don't think you'll have much fun with insurance though, and make sure you have good immobiliser/tracking system.
