Weird GT-R purchase dilemma
I like to change cars every 1-2 years. Have an e92 M3 now, thinking of getting a GT-R next. From hearing all about the crazy performance numbers of the GT-R, my concern is that I might not enjoy any other car after driving the GT-R. Has anyone been in this situation where they were/are trying to move on from a GT-R to another car? Mind you I am only talking about cars under $100k.

I work at my friend's custom car shop and I saw GT-R many time...I never drove one but I rode in one once. It's kinda nice but the customer added Greddy Exhaust on his GTR and the sound was insane! It's VERY fast but not handsome as Porsche or Ferrari or Lamborghini. Will I buy one? It depends because my feelings about GTR are on and off.

As a DD I would enjoy a BMW>Nissan. Have you ever thought that you might miss the M3? Overall finish and quality are important to me, cars need to feel "solid", the driving experience goes beyond just performance figures.

I had driven a first gen GTR and hated the transmission in it. Drove a new one and they improved it and it was a nice car. Not sure if I would buy one without putting in some more wheel time but I did enjoy my first impression on the newer one.

So you're apprehensive to purchase a GTR, in fear you may not enjoy your M3 anymore??

As mentioned before... at the end of the day, it is still a Nissan INSIDE, the part where you spend all your time. Yes it will be fast, yes it has tuning potential... it is not an R34 however. It also is not the same fit, finish, quality and ergonomics of other high-line vehicles. Keep that in mind.Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked - Warren Buffett

Drive a GT2 or GT3 Porsche after your GTR and you'll feel fine in my opinion... which is not a very educated opinion ofcourse as I have none of the cars listed in this thread.
From what I hear on YouTube, TV and forums, it's not too raw, just fast.http://www.youtube.com/mazzafiveonefour - My YouTube car channel
