Not bad, not bad at all.
If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for your '12 GTR out the door? How much are your monthly payments?
I have a 2009.
I bought it used with 1500 miles on the clock, for 64k.
$47k down, financed $17k.
Payments are $365 a month.
Technically I could have paid in full, but then I wouldn't have any payments to inflate my credit score, and it's nice to have more cash on hand for emergencies.
I haven't looked at the 2012 prices, so I can't be of much help to you there.
Another option is to get a 2009, cobb AP, downpipes, intake, and the new dunlop tyres, and you have a car that's faster than a 2012 (and for less $).
But stock is stock, and 2012 is the better car if you want a turn-key solution.
