i think your addicted to the Legnum, either you have a lot of people and gear to move, which i suggest you buy a bus or (and i know) NZ have lots of cheap cars, because of their relaxed import laws, i reckon i could of bought about 6, 97 GDI's for the price of me VR4
fuel, servicing, fear of the auto blowing up, and this ST-R is perfect, the towbar is very important, and it would have cost quite a bit to get a good one put onto the white VR-4, and towing would only increase the risk of the trans blowing up.
ST-R's are basically bullet proof, the engine is very strong, as is the gearbox and I hope it will last me for a long time.
I only bought the white VR-4 as a stop gap while my purple car was off the road, I was originally looking for a manual ST-R, but the cheapest I could find was $7500 and it had done 150km's, and didn't have a towbar. I bought the white one because it was only $4000 with a blown gearbox and I had a spare one sitting around. I was always going to sell it for the right ST-R.
