LOL! Notice how I also have a deposit on the M3? I love the M3, just my hunch seems to be correct about its pathetic torque, heavy weight, and soft characteristics. Call me a ricer or American or whatever, but I put a lot of emphasis on acceleration. 0-60 in 4.8 sucks. 0-60 in 4.5 ain't no bargain for me. I was hoping it would be around 0-60 in like 4.2 or so. 1/4 mile times will probably be like 12.9. I love the looks, handling, and legendary history of the M3. But it seems like in this battle of performance (looks, style, interior, luxury aside) the Skyline/GT-R wins with ease.

So, would you mind expanding on how the M3 DSG will shit on that "piece of plastic?"

A couple of members in our local Z club are getting them too. For myself I just never liked the looks of this or any of the older skylines. Also cant see servicing a 70k car at nissan dealers. Esp here in vegas all dealers/makes are crooks. We bought every car for past 10 years in cali, the m3 likewise is going to be bought out of state.

Im lucky I have a great dealer/service center (If you been in the nissan/Z community you would know) the new west covina nissan is probably the best dealer/service/parts/tuner etc. on the west coast, staffed with all the ex performance nissan crew. I do all service/install mods there. Btw Alot of gtr buyers are going thru them, if I liked the gtr it would have been thru them.

I just wish they sold bmw's as well.
Cool, I never had any experience with Japanese cars but service can't get much worse than what I've seen recently (Mercedes-Benz).

Those times can't be real, 7:15 is impossible. I do know that they tested the GT-R and it was slightly beating the Porsche 997 Turbo. Whether or not they were holding back and could have totally blown the Porsche away or that it was barely able to beat a GT-R is totally debatable.

The old Skyline (I think it was an R33) posted the fastest factory car time on the Ring and made a record. I doubt this new one will just because of all the supercars out there, but if beat a 997TT and run with the Z06 then it will be one hell of a fast car and should have very little competition...Imagine when the aftermarket tuners get done with it

Which one is better? SMGIII or the upcoming DSG? No doubtly the DSG. So if the M5 can do 60 in 4.2s and some even got 4.1s with SMGIII and 4.8s with manual what do you think the new M3 will do with DSG which will be much quicker than the SMGIII?
