NEWtoNISSAN posted a topic in Nissan Silvia (nissansilvia.com)Hey everyone, hoping to purchase this Spec R GT s15 soon, only problem, I’m still on my P Plates for 10 months so can’t legally drive it yet. So, when I have the car sitting in my garage for that sort of duration what can I do to look after it? How do I prevent myself from causing damage to the car if it isn’t being driven very often? My main concern is the mechanicals of the car and the fluids in the engine/transmission/diff/turbo/fuel etc. Will these go off over time? Paint care, do i need to worry about it if it’s not getting a wash very often? Can tyres go bad? Electrical/battery damage.. Can my ecu be effected if the battery dies (car has an electronic boost controller too)? Also being a GT it has all the options including leather seats, how do I care for leather that is sitting for a long time? I probably will take it for a drive around the block once a week/fortnight even though I’m not meant to, or have my parents drive it round a bit to get the engine moving but what else can be done to keep the car in mint condition till I can legally enjoy it on the road Also a bit off topic here, insurance? If any of you out there don't drive your car very often, what do you do with your insurance to keep it to a minimum seeing as the car is low risk because it doesnt see the road much? Should i insure it at all and cancel rego so save some bucks? Thanks everyone, all the tips you can offer will be helpful. Cheers.
