    C33 NISSAN LAUREL Import

    Hi, im considering buying a nissan laurel c33 rb20det 1992 fresh import from japan. Its a grade 3.5 and its covered 68,000 miles.
    Theres a few modifications including aero kit, roll cage, uprated FMIC, recaro seat, nardi wheel, SSR 18" wheels.
    Really just not sure as to what price i should be paying for one. Any ideas? The price includes inspection, mot, registration,
    service, valet.. etc Ive checked the auction sheet and it all looks good, same with the photos.
    Currently hes asking 6400. any thoughts?
    cheers in advance

    C33 NISSAN LAUREL Import

    From what I've been looking at I'd say that was cheap. Is he a genuine importer? Does he do it for a living and has been doing so for a while? There's a lot of threads about at the moment about every man and his dog saying they're a pro importer and then in turn ripping people off or not providing the service they should. The ones I was looking at seemed to be between 8-10k.

    Thanks for the advice, it was one of my main concerns when i first seen the car advertised on another forum.
    I enquired with him whether he had his own business and had any experience in importing cars. His reply was
    "I currently own and import cars through my business Gorilla Imports, you can find me on facebook".
    I have checked him out but there is not much else than the facebook page which says the business was started in 2015.
    He does seem legit but like you say i dont want to end up with something im not very happy with or nothing at all for my hard earned cash.

    Find the car you want on any of the auction imports (I browse exportcar.jp ). Once you find a car, contact a reputable company who have imported many cars.

    All these pop up bedroom importers are doing the same thing but dealing with the paperwork themselves. There may be decent guys but I wouldn't risk my cash with a no body.
