2003 Nissan Skyline 350GT Premium

Hi Ben,

Hope you are doing well. I officially owned and collected the car today and I must say she's an absolute beauty. Even according to JLM, all the mechanicals and all that are in perfect condition. Seems like a very-well-taken-care-of car, just as you explained. But still I'd give it a week or two to see whether there are any issues popping up. Judging by driving for an hour or so today I guess such things are very very unlikely. Anyway, I am taking it to JLM next week for another check-up.

I spent altogether $xx,xxx for everything including blue slip and compliance and all that, which is much less than what I was planning to pay for a car in such amazing condition. Must say it looks like an amazing bargain. Getting your help for this huge task was such an amazing decision. I even recovered more than what I paid you by following your instructions and because of the discounts I got through your contacts during the process. Guess all my future car purchases will be imports through you. Honestly mate, I've got no words to thank you.

Nissan Figaro (FK10)

The Figaro is a small retro car manufactured by Nissan. The car was originally sold only in Japan but despite this, the Nissan Figaro has become popular with celebrity owners in the UK and other countries where second hand Japanese imports are available. Due to its unique styling the car has also featured in science fiction television programs such as Caprica, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Doctor Who.

The Figaro was introduced at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show under the slogan "Back to the Future". It was built by a Nissan special projects group called Pike Factory who also produced other niche automobiles such as the Be-1, Pao and S-Cargo. It was designed by Shoji Takahashi, who won a design competition with the car.

Only four colours were available: Topaz Mist, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua and Lapis Grey with each colour symbolizing a season of the year. The Figaro was equipped with leather seats, air conditioning, CD player and a open roof. The engine is a turbocharged 1000cc in-line 4 cylinder (MA10ET) which gets good fuel economy.

Only 8,000 were originally available with an additional 12,000 added to production numbers to meet demand. Prospective purchasers had to enter a lottery to be able to buy one of these cars.
