    The link is "expired" now. Can you say what it was, even roughly from memory?

    ^Seems a good price ($64.9K) for a 2009, given the good condition, low miles (29.4K), recent tires and brakes, and the many mods.

    Just FYI, if anyone is looking to jump into a GTR, this is the time to buy. The GTR market is down due to the $10k dealer cash being offered by Nissan. You can get a brand new one for about $85k. The DBA models (2012+) are in the mid $70s. Quality used 2009s and 2010s are in the high $50s. It's a buyer's market right now for sure.

    A local Nissan dealer (not mine) recently sent me a mailer offering ~$57K for my 2009 as a trade-in. I think its worth a bit more (and so would they when they price it for re-sale). 37K miles and never launched.

    Another local dealer sent me a form mailer saying they have an immediate need for 2009 GT-Rs like mine to satisfy buyers, adding that now is a great time for a trade-in to get into a new Sentra or Altima. LOL. I'm sure lots of GT-R owners move up to a Sentra! EPIC FAIL.

    I bet they wouldn't offer $57k when you took it in. If I was offered $57k for mine when I went in, I would be driving a 2015 right now. The dealer close to me offered me $51k! I laughed in their face. They were offering me the 2015 for $89k (with premium interior) which is fair, but they low balled the hell out of me on my 2009! My car has 33k miles and has never been launched. I was brutally honest with them about their insulting offer.

    Dealers are shameless. When I first went to order my 2009 in April 2008, the sales mgr's first comment was that he'd need $30K (i.e. 40%+) over the MSRP! I laughed at him and then he laughed at himself. We settled for an order of magnitude less. And then Nissan had a 10% ($7K) mid-year price increase, 2 months after I took delivery, which made my purchase price feel quite good.
