    Couple reasons I wouldn't want to daily a Type R is the close-ratio gearbox and because there's absolutely no guts until you get to about 5500 revs. 5th gear in a Type-R is like 4th gear in a Nissan...

    R32 GTST isn't that quick. And the stock turbos don't like to be pushed much past factory. And the RB20DET isn't a great platform to modify imo. A Skyline isn't something I would daily drive....

    I think if it shows W on the entire panel, it's a repainted area. If it pinpoints the a W then it's a touch up. I had a car that had W1 on just about every panel, but it was an electronic sheet that...

    From my findings, the registries don't really care. But Amvic will toot their horn if things are starting to look suspicious. Although, they really aren't suppose to stick their nose into private...

    GST and Duty is applicable to the FOB price. So everything except the freight. This includes any associated cost in exporting the vehicle, like your exporter's service fee.

    The booster packs don't come fully charged, so good chance they will not work right out of the box. You will need some sort of way to boost the car again though if you don't plan on running it for 3...

    Booster pack at WWL

    What exactly is this solar powered booster they have at WWL? I was able to confirm with them that they do in fact have one for customers, but read here that it didn't work for someone?

    Most affordable brokers?

    Anyone know who has the best deal for customs brokerage?

    ABC/Pacific is 350
    Courtenay is 250
    Al Thomson is 250, which is already quite cheap, and he is very good.

    Any others?

    10L/100KM in city actually isn't all too bad considering the new 2.0 Sentras get about 8.5-9L/100KM. And this is a inline 6 originally designed in the 80s, plus the added drag of the RWD drivetrain.
