Nissan GT-R: a Parts and Accessories Buyer's Guide for North Carolina
Your GT-R is a total blast to drive, a true speed demon -- and an affordable one. No wonder it's a flagship among Nissan sports cars.
Whether you're customizing that two-door, two-seater coupe you love, though, or just repairing a few common problems it can have, you'll have to keep in mind the key feature differences between trims. (Put simply, a model from 2009, one from 2024, or otherwise -- not all are created equal: a GT-R Premium from 2010 is different from the GT-R Track Edition of 2020, for instance. Even trims from the same year differ enough; a 2024 GT-R T-Spec is different from a 2024 GT-R NISMO, and so on.) That way, you get the right parts and accessories for the job.
Good thing you came to us here at Nissan Wholesale Direct for advice. We've got all the info you need to do both.
Nissan GT-R Overview
Take the 2024 Nissan GT-R, for instance. The Premium trim, starting at around $123,000, and the T-Spec, going for around $143,000 to start, incorporate twin-turbocharged, 3.8-litre V6 engines, both of which shell out 565 horsepower. Step up to the NISMO trim for about $223,000, though, and you get a blistering 600 horsepower. All engines team with six-speed dual-clutch six-speed transmissions (DCTs), and all-wheel drive (AWD) comes standard.
Other standard and optional features include:Heated front seats with leather-and-suede upholsteryAn 8-inch infotainment touchscreenA Bose 11-speaker audio systemA customizable data display with performance metrics readoutsBrembo carbon-ceramic brakesAdjustable Bilstein dampersA swan neck-style spoilerA front limited-slip differentialA carbon fiber appearance package
The thing is, a few of these come standard or available on the NISMO trim. So, know your GT-R model year, its trim, and its features, and whether to buy this part or that accessory for it gets a lot easier.
Three Common Nissan GT-R Problems
1. Bad Brakes
Is your GT-R taking longer to slow down and stop? Are the brake pads cracked? Maybe you hear squeaking, whining, or scraping when you brake, or the brake pedal's spongy or unusually low. Good chance something in your brakes needs replacing -- a brake caliper, perhaps, or a brake rotor, if not a pad. Run an inspection to figure out what.
2. Loose Engine Bearings
If you hear the engine in your GT-R rattling when it's running, or feel it vibrating at the same time, there's a good chance an engine bearing attached to the flywheel shaft is faulty. Replacement's needed.
3. Faulty Transmissions
Practically any trouble shifting with a GT-R can be the result of a failed solenoid, although sometimes, a bad clutch can be to blame. In either case, you'll need replacements. The pros can help if you're not sure how to install something.
