Wow, basing a $70k purchase on a few thread on a message board. Unreal.

Don't wait for the CSL, almost for sure it won't be coming to the US.

+1 on what are you thinking about the CSL?

We have no idea of the cost and if or when it will come to the US. Might as well say you are waiting for the new NSX good luck.

If you are willing to wait that long 1++ years then the GTR will also have a better version and the GTR may be more easy to come by in 1++ years.

if i can have either car for MSRP and no dealer mark-up, then GTR! but since it looks like nissan dealers across the US are asking $10k to $20k over MSRP for their King Kong Nissan, then I'd rather go for //M3.

I would normally say go test drive each, and not to forget the Mercedes C63 AMG and Lexus IS-F. However, I doubt you'll ever get to test drive a GT-R for a few years. You'd be lucky to get one anyway. So drive the other three and also maybe an Audi RS-4, then make your decision. I'm pretty sure after doing this I know which one you'll get.

I'm reserving my judgment on this until I see the GT-R IRL. Pictures of the silver one look hideous. But I saw a red one in an Internet video a couple of weeks ago and it looked gorgeous. Pictures really don't do either the GT-R or M3 justice.

I'd choose the GTR over my vette or M3, but with only 1500 coming to the states, the ones coming to Maroone have already been spoken for since last year, good luck to anyone that is looking to get one.

I'm a bit curious why won't you consider GM makes, as the upcoming CTS-V would fulfill all the expectations you want out of your future car.

GTR will be selling with a $15-20k mark-up and there is no way around it. This will be a hot car at limited quanity.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but looking at pictures doesn't really give you a good feel for what the car looks like in person. When I saw one at the N.Y. auto show, it surprised me how good it actually looked in person.

To me, it was better looking than the M3 coupe - but I admit that I like the looks of the standard 3 series coupes better than the M car, and don't think the M3 (in any form) is an especially beautiful car.

dude if the M3 has been your dream for 10 years, you have to get it. Youll buy that gtr with the blistering performance, but the interior is s**t, and everytime you see that m3 drive past you, youll know u made the wrong choice. Get the m3, hands down.
