Eh, not a big fan of BBS wheels. I don't see why they're so popular. They always look too small to me, and a bit on the busy side usually. I actually prefer the stock wheels on the GTR to these (well, pertaining solely to the GTR).

Yeah, took another look. I think they're too spindly, which goes against the chunky design of the GTR.

Is it just me...or are BBS wheels a bit on the JDM side to anyone? Seems like an Asian ride sorta thing...just my observations...could be wrong...whatever.

maybe cuz they r superior performance wheels that even bmw use? or...maybe its cuz they use them in f1 or a lot of competitive racing competitions?

Sorry, just telling it how it is. If you can compare a fine, talented woman to a car, you have no life.

Maybe you're just bad at life dude. I never compared a fine talented woman to a car. Don't take everything so literally.

Sorry, it's a pet peeve. When guys compare women to cars I have to object. There is no comparison. No car can ever have the curves, personality or performance.

Yes I can appreciate cars for their beauty but as many will attest, a GTR is not at that level. Though I appreciate the performance, it's just a fast, ugly car to me and I had a chance to buy it, money wasn't an object, but it was just too ugly to be caught driving in. I can think of 20 or 30 other slower cars to buy...

i think mny ppl downplay the heritage that japanese car manufacturers hav. apparently u're another one that, i think, follow the tradition of just seein euro/ameri cars as sheer beauty. bring a r34 or even a r32 and u wouldn't think that was a sick lookin car huh? yea, go figure...

sorry, if its a pet peeve u hav, u prollie dont belong in a car forum seein as how mny members come in to look and comment on another person's car.

I guess you never thought that people would have opinions that were different than yours. Yeah, R34 or R32 does nothing for me, honestly I'd rather buy a Lexus or another Toyota in that same class. Maybe it does for you and that's fine. But it's not hot sex or pure sex in any way and will never compare in my book. That word is reserved for human forms of life for me, not tailpipes.

Just agree to disagree. You said it best yourself... that people have different opinions.

Who cares which way a person uses such a word or what venacular they use? Seriously, get a grip. It's obvious you have some type of bias against the R35. That's fine and dandy, but you just thought it was cool to say if someone believes such and such they must not get any. That might've sounded cool on Honda-tech, but that shit doesn't fly around here. I mean cmon, Toyota compared to the R35? Just because you drive a M3 doesn't mean your shit don't stink.

Hey you know what? Badfish is a word reserved for fish or marine animals for me, not people. See how ridiculous your argument is? The fact of the matter is, a lot of M3 owners feel threatened by the R35, so they find the must ludicrous ways to try to put it down. Stop being a fanboy and start being a car enthusiast. A nice car is a nice car. If you don't agree with the looks, that's okay, but there's no need to try to resort to adolescent remarks because someone's wording of a particular topic. It's supposed to be fun, maybe you forgot that in your attempts to be cool.
