Any GTR drivers use their car in the winter?? My old STi was sooo much fun, I can imagine the GTR being on another level with proper tires.

I use my occassionally but only when there's not a lot of snow on the street.
There's no clearance. Snow gets jammed in the wheel wells easily and snow/ice chunks can do some real front end damage.

i think the gtr is more luxury than the m3 eh. it can provide pretty much any info related to the car to you such as what psi each wheel has, how many g you pull, your oil temp, remove the speed limiter when you are at the track, etc.....everything is included such as NAV, heated seat, etc....where as pretty much everything is an expensive option on the m3.

it also know when you break your tranny or turn off traction control. how cool is that?

either way though, i love the gtr.

I would never own one even if I could afford a car that price range (in which case it would be a CLK Black Series all day long). I could see the harsh ride being a little annoying if the roads are no good, but what really turns me off is the sky high maintenance and warranty stories. Looks pretty menacing on the road though, especially in black.
