IMHO.....oh yeah. The power on the GTR is awesome. The handling is amazing. I'll let Blake drive it and see what he says.

Sh$t. I wish I was as capable as you in making a quick decision like that.

Hopefully I'll get my chance in the future...

All the best with your awesome new GT-R!!!

If I would have thought about it more, I probably would have missed the opportunity. I was pretty attached to the GT500, basically cause I had done it up the way I wanted it looks wise. Oh well they're just cars, I'll own more and I've got a badass one to enjoy right now.

I keep tossing it in my head to ditch the m3 and get a GTR... But I'm still in love with the lines of the m3, for now. Plus it is a bonus with the gf because she has a 335i, so we are matching

=) But there is a white one 09 with 2k miles at ecarlink that caught my eye!

Didn't know you were serious. It's at Bankston Nissan. I'll post pics as soon as I get some decent one's. I gotta change the color of the wheels, I hate the silver.

I'll try to see how much they'll 'mark it up'

Can't wait for pics. Any plans mod wise?? GTRs sound sick with an after market muffler..or actually it may just be pipes because a lot of people keep the stock tips

I'll get another Shelby someday down the road, but I can't beat not having a payment and 1 car that'll meet everything I want.
Congratulations.
Seriously badass. Can't wait to see some pics.

The wheels look black in your avatar. Did you already powder coat them? Black wheels would look aggressive as hell.
