A thread with "GTR" in the title is basically bait for GTR owners to post their opinions.
S4 owners will post in S4 threads, etc. It's just the nature of the beast.
I do understand all of that. I still read on forums of the cars that I used to own as well. I just don't get involved in debates about them vs what I am driving now unless someone is just spewing pure bullsh!t and need to be called out on it.
I think 99.9% of the members on here appreciate the likes of a GT-R, Porsche, Ferrari, GT500, Viper, Z06 et al......but when those owners constantly sing the praises of their car on an M forum, M owners can't help but get tired of it. I'm not saying it is just GT-R guys either; although they are the overwhelming majority. There are a couple guys that post on here that swing on Porsche's nutsack all day and all night. They get on my nerves just as bad..... and I own a Porsche.
There is no denying there are fanbois galore on every forum (Vette guys take the cake on that one). I just give them a bit of leeway when they do it on their own forum......even though it can be so damn nauseating
