I am not bid on skylines...what is the story on this kind? r32, r33? I think it is not a r34 right? What is the HP? Engine? I really don't know imports, (except those are not sold in the states right?)

That looks to be a R33, and I don't think it has the larger of the engines offered. It's def. not the badass fabled R34 GTR. Negative a bagillion on getting a Skyline in auto. WHY??? + a little in getting a car that is almost never seen in the states.

I really hope your "big plans" include a engine and tranny swap. If not give the car to someone that will do that.

woah. Skyline and a bimmer are a hell of a diff. I'd stick with the bimmer. Does the skyline have bumper to bumper warranty? Damn its auto! Looks good though.

Pardon my ignorance but are there any legal consequences with having the steering column on the right? I know postal vehicles are configured that way but never seen any others.

Until quite recently, the only Skylines that were legal were imported by Moterex. That is because they were able to give the government 5 Skylines for crashing usages. The company went under, and now the only Skyline that can be legally imported here is the R33. R32 and R34 are no longer able to be transported here legally.


How much did you pay for yours? A buddy of mine is contemplating selling his fixed up R33 here in SoCal for around $70,000.

Speaking of that, my little brother in Thailand just got a used R34 Skyline. He paid close to $90,000 USD. It's crazy considering that you can get a nice townhouse there for about $45,000 USD...2 bedrooms and a garage. My uncle paid more than $200,000 USD for his E60 M5. And I was told that the 335i there is around $120,000 USD!

I think i would be depressed if i got rid of my E90 for something like this, but I guess if the op is happy with it that's all that matters. whats the hp on it?

in all honestly....

1) skyline is a nice car, but would not get rid of an E90 for it... unless it was a newer skyline..

2) have u realized you purchased a right-hand drive skyline(which is cool), but its AUTOMATIC, ur gonna get soooo flamed....

its crazy what some people will do to get the car they want.

a right hand drive automatic.

gotta be a 15 year old car with no service history most likely.. and it looks like its the base skyline

is it even turbo'ed?


and traded in his e90. all this so he can say he has a skyline

to each his own , but i cant understand for the life of me why you would want this car

its a old skyline, big deal

enjoy it though
