Farewell my friends...

After 15 years and 8 bmw's (6 M cars), I've gone off the reservation:



Yes it's a 2012 GT-R Black Edition and MAN what a car! The Black Edition has Volk wheels, recaros with red trim and a black headliner. Will do some minor mods (exhaust, tune) but not too crazy. Bought it last Friday and it's going to the track this Saturday - woohoo!



Thanks to all for all your help over the years and I wish you guys many happy miles!

Barry

Wow, that is one heck of a car! I'm sure it is a couple of notices above a stock M3, is just about every performance category. Enjoy!!!

Wish you were sticking around, you had the best E90 of them all. Thanks again for the Akra. Best of luck with the GTR.

Whoa holy shat. Enjoy. Your M3 looked badass, but this is just WOW. Looks like a Spec V with those wheels, awesome. Enjoy running mid 10s in that car and the constant grin on your face entering corners at absurd speeds! Pics of interior!

Hay hay hay. Wait a minute; You think we will let you off with such a tease of a post!!!??
We have the right as former M friends to hear more about the car performance. Yes we can read about it in any magazine or online reviews but it would be much more interesting coming from a hard core M enthusiast like you. Give us your opinion on how GTR is different than M3 in:
-Low end torque
-high RPM response
-Fast cornering and handling
-Brakes
-Shifting speed, up and down
-Ease or complexity of changing driving modes
-overall quality of ride
-overall quality of interior materials
-sounds (engine, exhaust or rattles)

Definitely my next car.

Mazdaspeed MX-5 -> STI -> M3 -> GT-R

My friend has a 2010 and he's already thinking about trading up to a Lambo.
