    Default Purchasing a GTiR

    I'm looking to try and purchase/ship a GTiR, looking for advise on how, who to use, and associated cost and/or red tape.

    Please advise

    Prices have spiked a bit, in my opinion, since the 90 model years are eligible to be brought over legally as they are 25+ years old now. I think you would just have to check with your state Secretary of State in order to find out what the regulations are and what the titling requirements are.


    I looked into it, but can't justify the cost + towing + titling + insurance when I could just buy a WRX wagon, and be ALMOST as happy, but have access to more replacement parts a lot easier. Plus the WRX's are a bit newer too.

    Anyone else know anything else about it?
    Anyone else get excited about the upcoming MLB season?!

    i can get you half a one from nj if you would like, you would just need to find the rear end.

    Go across the border and get a tsuru

    Theres a rhd converted b13 4 door on craigslist in cali

    You are probably looking at close to 10k if not more to get it over here and to me that isnt worth it when the older skylines are around that same price range. google is your friend lots of importers out there just do your due diligence on their reputation and reviews before ever sending money

    The one here in So-Cal looks more like a JDM Import of a GA AWD from the ad on cragislist.


    Not worth the $7,500 asking price IMHO.

    Correct. Freight charges. The cars can be had at a price I would be willing to pay. The shipping is the killer. I think GTI-R's are exceptionally dope. but not 11.5K dope.

    Now a Primera T4 (isn't that the AWD model??) would be AMAZING. And probably loads cheaper since they are not as desirable as the GTI=R and Skylines. Especially with the 25 year mark coming up on some nice/popular models.

    If it is a JDM car imported to Canada, rules still apply.

    Canada is easier to import because Canada does not apply a Month to a model year. So that 25 year law can apply instantly on Jan 1st of each calendar year. Whereas, Japan and the USA apply a production month and year to vehicles. That can make it easier to import a car from Canada than from other.

    There was some article about the "First (legit) and legally imported R32 Skyline" and that caused a whole bunch of kerfuffel because most know the R32 came out at the tail end of the year so that would have "violated" the law. But Canada does not report month on the cars they import so that loophole allowed it to be legit.

    You need to contact Japanese Classics, LLC in VA. I am working with them to get a R32 GT-R here for a customer and they have been great to deal with.

    Japanese Classics, LLC in Virginia or Rivsu in FL.
    Both only deal with importing legally anything 25 years old from Japan.

    Worse, from what I've been told. Car would have to be certified by Nissan Mexico to meet Mexican "DOT" standards. i.e. It'd cost you the same as just bringing it here.

    Now if you were to import it as a race car, for race use only, and then go to Michoacan(easiest state to pass inspection in as they essentially just check that the car can accelerate and stop safely, no emissions or any safety) and have it passed as a road car and then keep your mexican tags in the states for a bit then yes it's a ton easier.

    Still not legal. Do it right or don't do it all. There is no cheap way around this.

    1990 Nissan Pulsar GTi-R "RA" - Japanese Classics

    Companies like this are starting to bring these over with the 25 yo rules, as also stated above. Not sure I would drop nearly $12k for one even though I love these cars. This is just your regular RA version...

    ^^^That car shouldn't have commanded that much money. Look at the Kms and also the condition of the steering wheel. There seem to be some Nismo parts on it but still I wouldn't have paid that much money for one.

    ^^^ Totally agree with you. But seems to be the normal price from these importers. Here is another that is pending sale after like a week on the site. In better shape and only 106xxx km, but asking almost $13k!

    What I find even more amazing is that the Civic SiR is going for the same money. I mean I realize it's the most powerful Civic but $13k for essentially a hopped up 1991 pedestrian car is steep.

    I wonder how much these are worth in Japan in enthusiast project shape. I'm gonna guess not enough to warrant the US asking prices.

    The Japanese export and deregistration fees, shipping fees and import bondage and customs fees can quickly approach half the value of the car or more. So always expect to see prices here almost double the prices than in Japan.
