It's the same in New England. Rarely see another GTR. It does get massive attention (from dudes), both behind the wheel and at gas stops.

You do tire from it, but I put up with it 'cause it really is a good DD.

Nissan ripped those off from the Aston Martins.

Honestly as daily driver I would pick the M3... Weekend car would be the GTR.

Glad I have both.

But if I had to choose one it would be the M3.

as far as modding and performance, there is tons of power still left on the table in the GT-R. a simple midpipe and a tune will get you about 40hp (shouldn't be more than $2k).
I've sat in the 2012, and I gotta say, the CF on the center console looks like a sticker/overlay. If it isn't, then they did an amazing job making it look fake.

Not like it matters, though. CF is like fake tits and prostitute-make-up, for cars.
Trim is trim.





More than +40hp from a tune + midpipe.

Exhaust, no tune :

tune only (AFAIK) :
