Make sure it's secured well on the boat from Japan. Water stains are impossible to get out.

you buying local or overseas? get a compression test and check for bubbly dash and interior trim. check for loose HICAS, engine and suspension bushings.

get the real confirmed auction sheet and get it translated by a 3rd party

I've owned 2; GTS-4 and GTR. Get on GTRC and do your research, there's plenty of info there. Skylines Australia is also a great community and resource...

...though get used to people calling you 'champ', because down there it's equivalent to 'bro' or 'man', but up here it's super condescending.

Make sure you get a wide enough bucket seat so you can wear your bomber jacket while driving to station square.. it's a long drive from Surrey.

When was the last time you went to Station Square? That place no longer exists....

R32s lack a third brake light, and rear side reflectors, which are necessary to have an imported vehicle registered in BC. So you'll have to install that shit yourself.

There's a lot more stuff you should know about importing but those things are fairly unique to the R32.

R32's are waaaay cooler than R33's. Also, you can get a sweet miny R32 from Japan for like $5k. And spend the rest of your money on suspension, wheels, hicas lock out and minor boost up mods. Manual boost controller, front mount and WB02. Easy to make these cars go fast.

My old R32 I got for $6.5K landed back in 2007. And prices have gone down since then.
