It's really the same with any manufacturer. If you up the boost with a tune or add power adders it will void the drive-train warranty. The GT-R got a bad rap when they first came out because in order to get those incredible 0-60mph times (3.2 seconds I believe) you had to turn traction control off and if the DCT broke during the launch then Nissan would not repair the transmission under warranty. The 2012 GT-R does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds with traction control on, so it is covered under warranty.

The DCT in a supercharged M3 does not work well at the drag strip. I ran a 10 with no burn-out, so I'm happy with the time.

I tried selling it with all the mods, but did not have any luck. I returned the car to completly stock and it drove just like the day I bought it.

I would rather have a supercharged M3 as a daily driver. The GT-R is like a street legal race car and it gets a lot of attention. It's a rougher ride and "some" of the materials used are not as good as BMW. I drive a company vehicle durning the week, so the GT-R is perfect for me.

It's as good as it should be. The 2012 GT-R had a Nurburging time of 7:24.
