Sorry it me who got it wrong, I thought when someone posted the GTR's price was $70K that this was the official price.

I just can't see spending that kind of money on a GTR and then having it serviced by the guy who just finished working on a Sentra. Waiting in the service dept waiting room with crack babies crawling all over you... I'll pass.

I traded my 07 G35 Sedan on an 08 335 E90 because Infiniti's service dept. was so bad. I can't imagine how bad Nissan's service dept. next door would have been (same owner). When I say bad, I mean cops call you at work because your cars on blocks with the wheels gone at the dealership bad, oily black footprints on the carpet, you name it.

I believe that Nissan should have chose to sell the GT-R at Infiniti dealers under the Nissan badge. It seems as though the Nissan dealers don't know what in the hell they are doing. I am not a big fan of the fake names slapped on cars (Ie. Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti). Kudos to Mazda.

To all of you bashing Japanese cars: Just remember who makes the most reliable and best selling cars in the world. There is no argument, the Japanese know how to make cars that will run forever, and lots of people buy them.

Hey now, I wear wife beaters, albeit with a silver chain and spikey black and blonde hair.

As long as it's a silver chain and you don't have a mullet .

No mullet, that is way too 1983 for me. I'm very stylish and contemporary (like a BMW)

Totally agree about the Japanese car part you talked about. But I think selling GT-R under Infiniti is kind of strange.

But I have heard that Nissan ordered all Nissan dealers to send their top mechanics to Japan to acquire the mandatory service training specifically for GT-R and only that mechanic could touch the GT-R.

This is true. Dealers had to put up $25k, have the mechanic(s) properly trained to work in the car and have special equipment for the car, too include a specific alignment rack. I also believe that they are required to have a dedicated service bay.

Can someone explain why its such a big deal now that the m3 is slower than the R35?

it's a big deal only to the whiners and airheads in this forum who have such a hard time comprehending and accepting what the M3 can and cannot do.

also, i think it's because back then, the R34 wasn't really available commercially here in the U.S.. and now all these whiners are so insecure about themselves knowing that they will soon cross path with a GT-R on the road that they have to come up with justification and excuses why the M3 is .x slower here and there, to the point they start badgering another vehicle based on its badge. it's a pity that some M3s are/will be driven by such insecure people.

cheers!
