    This deserves a better title, lol. I thought this was just some thread with a link to a car for sale or something.

    That's the soonest I can get down there to see it in person, test drive it, etc.

    I was going to build something to take to the track, but honestly, I don't have the time or desire to buy the space to heavily mod something. The GTR + light mods is going to be plenty and it'll be easy to do.

    I'm an engineer in O&G.

    I wouldn't buy one of these cars without seeing it and driving it first. I'm listening..

    I did a quick google earlier and they have a LOT of scam warnings. They didnt look like scams to me, just a dealer that sells more than they are staffed for. Just really bad customer service.

    I've read some of those reviews too, which obviously aren't great but the Carfax is clean, it's a one owner car and I've had Nissan do a PPI. I'm bringing my own money so I really won't have anything to do with them on that side of things. Is there anything else I should be cautious of?

    The car might not be on inventory anymore. Unless the dealership is close, I would call ahead to confirm. (obviously I'm assuming you would do this, just throwing it out there) This could be a bait and switch to get you on the lot and say, "oh man, that one just sold. check this orange one with 120,000 miles and 24" wheels for $150k".

    I'd be furious. Especially since I'm flying out to look at it. But I wouldn't put it past a car dealership to pull something like that lol

    I have to call the salesman today, I'll verify again to make sure.
