2003 Nissan Skyline 350GT Premium

Hi Ben,

Hope you are doing well. I officially owned and collected the car today and I must say she's an absolute beauty. Even according to JLM, all the mechanicals and all that are in perfect condition. Seems like a very-well-taken-care-of car, just as you explained. But still I'd give it a week or two to see whether there are any issues popping up. Judging by driving for an hour or so today I guess such things are very very unlikely. Anyway, I am taking it to JLM next week for another check-up.

I spent altogether $xx,xxx for everything including blue slip and compliance and all that, which is much less than what I was planning to pay for a car in such amazing condition. Must say it looks like an amazing bargain. Getting your help for this huge task was such an amazing decision. I even recovered more than what I paid you by following your instructions and because of the discounts I got through your contacts during the process. Guess all my future car purchases will be imports through you. Honestly mate, I've got no words to thank you.
