I had a ride in my Buddie's GTR this past summer and I can confirm the acceleration and traction it provides is unreal. I also found it to be like playing a video game just like you mention....... The thing is, having a car that drives like a video game is a big negative for me.

Congrats on the new car! Hope you enjoy it!

Sicko - i think you need to put more than 8000 miles on the M3 you've owned for 4 years before you need a second car =)

How did you get your roof to be black? A wrap, paint, or full replacement and how much did that cost? It looks so sweet. Nissan should've offered a CF roof as standard.

Oh I def. agree on the CF roof option. It would have been sweet. There are a few companies out there that have a full replacement panel but it is way too expensive. I did a 3M Wrap. After debating on a carbon fiber look or a flat look I decided to do a Gloss Black to match it up nicely with the A Pillars. I will PM you some more close up pics. It def. looks good and stands out even more.

Nice! I almost got a 2012 Gun Metal Grey, but it had 21,000 miles already. And yes I am on NAGTROC (but the website has changed names to GT-R Life).

I've only had the Xpel Ultimate on the car for about 5 weeks so too hard to tell. Usually paint protection film starts to show signs of yellowing (esp on white cars) after 9-12 months. I've had three white cars all with various brands of paint protection film and all three films yellowed over time. But most manufacturers warranties will cover yellowing....so you can get it completely redone (free parts and labor) if the yellowing becomes an issue.

I believe xpel has a 10 year warranty.

I believe Xpel is 10 years as well...but that doesn't reallly matter. I'm probably gonna trade in the car before that time.

Nothing else planned. I value the warranty...especially on this car, which is extremely expensive to repair.

The car is already fast enough. 545 hp and 463 ft-lbs of torque..stock! One member of GT-R Life ran a 10.79 126.8 MPH, in a bone-stock GT-R with a 1.55' 60 ft time.
