The consumables definitely is an issue clutch fluid $1100, brakes $2200, tires $2800, and that was in the first 11k miles LOL. Well put the GTR is a sledge hammer, not a great daily driver (I don't daily drive mine), whereas the M3 is drivable daily. Of course the M3 is also a lot slower...
that's bullshit.. please go to gtrlife (nagtroc) and you'll see plenty of 2009-10 GTRs that have been stock and had tranny issues. Infact I recall a brand new 2012 GTR that had a tranny issue right off the dealer floor. I can go dig up the threads but too lazy (and don't care )

M3 is obviously a lot slower on the track ... but its fun
