    After some consideration, I have opted between 2 cars to purchase. These 2 are very similar but it's a very hard choice in my opinion.

    What would you choose?

    Nissan Skyline R34
    Nissan GTR R35

    The Skyline is definitely timeless and holds up to 2019 expectations but the GTR R35 is a computer controlled monster.

    Any pros and cons to either?

    Have you done a test drive in both? It should be enough to help you decide

    Good car. Done so many mod.
    Only use when travel above 100km. Like 2-3 per month.

    Pro: euphoria, fast, comfort, chick magnet ,

    Cons: higher maintenance(if something broke down)

    don't forget to look up the normal price for, clutch and exhaust and brake shoes and brake disc prices ......

    because they usually get changed when needed be warned.

    you can go deeper and look for same car mot failure usually gives an idea of the car common problems if any.

    gd luck m8 enjoy anyway

    this looks the neebees according to reviews , only read sorry

    A buddy of mine has the Skyline and I've done a test drive in it. It's an absolute machine. The amount of power and handling is beyond measure but he did have it modded so that could add on brownie points.

    I've also test drove a GTR at a friends wedding and fell in love immediately. Guess I'll have to do a bit more digging and come to a conclusion.

    R35 usually attracts girl. That could take as a pro. But yes maintenance may cost a bit higher than the R34.
    I will probably go for a R34 now and will buy a R35 in like 2 years. (when I become rich enough to maintain one.) or else I may end up leaving it in the garage for about 25 days per month.
