That is a awsome car. I have an aquaintance of mine that has one. I don't know if it is true but I heard the upkeep costs are steep..........like $15K for a break job

An M3 is a better DD IMO. Can't deny the beast power of a GT-R...

Have you been in a GTR yet? My impressions that it is wayyy too rough as a daily driver. Think of a M3 on the stiffest settings x2 (EDC).

GTR!

The ride is "tight", but I just put on some non-runflats which really improved the roughness.

M3 is tough to beat overall. The quickness of the GTR is a rush though

Yeah I drove it a few years back in Tokyo when it was originally released

Fell in love with it

Even though I barely got to floor it, as traffic in Ginza is horrrrible


I have my coilovers on my 335i on the stiffest setting
I've owned two Porsches (996 T and Boxster)
and love a stiff ride
I take handling over comfort any day of the week

but I will admit the M3 would be more practical as a DD

Mainly cause of the maintenance costs

i did the math, I should get about $13k back from BMW
and if i sell all my mods and rims, I should get another 5-7K back

I plan to invest that money, drive my 3000GT (or my mom's SLK), and save up for the GT-R or a Porsche C2S

or just get a 370Z and call it a day.. a car for 35k... that'd be cheap as hell... except only 2 damn seats...


and pics or ban?
um... I'm still waiting for BMW NA lol
car might not even get lemoned

Get the Porsche C2S.


The GTR is NOT a practical daily driver. The maintenance costs on it are a bit ridiculous.

I know some people that still work for Nissan and they will tell you the very same thing.

Only thing is Porsches are a dime a dozen (for good reason too)

the maintenance is what's really scaring me with the GT R

I found a nice 07 911 C in the 50s
Not bad

Be advised that the GTR is a big fucking car, I forgot about this until I saw a couple last night. I still think they're badass, but I don't know how it'd be to get used to

Sexy sexy
