Thanks but i didn't reignite the thread it was Car5Car, although his post seemed a wee bit off-topic?

If I were to wrap my car, I'd go a bit more exotic, like maybe Hot Pink.

Someone in the forum wrapped his bright green a few years ago. It looked really good.
Here in the states Law Enforcement doesn't care what color your car is.

Is why I gave an opinion from this side of the pond, albeit another country technically, had an office in Dublin and in Eire the police are far too stringent on motorists, insurance and road tax is also silly money there.

I really want a car in a color like that.

I contemplate either a vintage Nissan GTR or get my black Porsche 944 repainted.

The GTR would be my first turbo charged car, and first inline six, so that would expand horizons.

I've always known most people to consider the GT-R as a poser-boi car. Ugly, unrefined and classless. Fast, sure, but that's about all. Sort of like a quicker version of a Honda Fart-Can Civic.

Here too Steve and I'm with Cee Jay. I don't get it. They can fetch $80k here in the States.

The R32 recently crossed the 25 year mark, so now it is available to the U.S. market with select model years.

There is a lag as more and more people become aware and start looking for one, but the demand has risen a lot.

I would have thought that year of availability would be peak demand, but it seems a lot of people that would have wanted one were not aware of it, only by seeing videos or the cars at car shows is the word spreading. Slower demand ramp up.

I love the sound a well tuned 6 can make. The I6 has less balance issues than a V6.

At this point if the R-32 price stays high, in a few years I might go for a R-33. More back seat space, and the ability to get to the sound I'd want would still be there.

I remember years ago when I purchased my e550 I also looked at R33 at the time they were literally half the price of the merc.

Fast forward to the present and it's a complete reversal the R33 has gained momentum and continuously risen in price whilst Mercedes has plummeted .
