2003 Nissan Skyline 300GT Premium

Hey Ben,

Yes its great, very new looking for a 10 year old car. We actually used it as our wedding car recently (also the reason I haven't sent you an email since we got). And have had lots of complements. Richard was great as well, things went very smoothly especially considering I had no idea about the process. Only unusual thing was a small (size of two fifty cent pieces) bit of paint has gone back to the black primer on the back of the front right fender, I think this happened during transport as there is nothing on the photos from Japan. Nothing that can't be touched up though. It is definitely the best 10k I spent on a car.

Price Estimates

Any costs listed above are estimates only. Calculations are based on average importing costs and current rates. Final costs are likely to vary slightly from these prices depending on variations in exchange rates and other factors beyond our control, however these rarely are different by a significant amount. Please check with your local registration authority to confirm registration costs and stamp duty.

Exchange Rates

The current exchange rate being used is 81.4 yen however banks never trade at the listed wholesale rate. Typically banks will offer around 1.5 yen less so the rate we use for calculations today will be 79.9 yen, ensuring a realistic price estimate.
