I forgot to drive the car today and the weather is going to be bad all weekend not to mention im not driving it halloween night... I dont know how im gonna put the break in miles on...  no im not being a stickler but ive only got 253 and I want to get at least to the 1K check up sooner than later.. so I can install my NISMO oil filter, cross caliper springs, do my touch points and go out and launch this damn thing on video

Matt... weather permitting, CZC is going to do a day trip up to Asheville on Nov. 9th.  It will be morning up, have lunch there, do a little local driving, then back.  Would be a good way to rack up another 200-250 miles.  :thumbsup:

C&C may still be happening but we are going to call off the GT-R gathering. The weather forecast went from promising to absolutely crappy in the last 48hrs. Maybe next time.

If this were an R36 test mule why would they bother putting a different bumper on it?  Especially one that mates exactly to the R35.  This bumper would be useless on an R36.

It could be serving double duty as body fitment for R35 and drivetrain/chassis for R36.  It could also be purposely misleading.  If it's part of the facelift only, why would it be running around with the old style headlights/taillights?

By the way, did anyone else see the video Nissan posted recently of the Zeod running the Top Gear test track (1:13 all electric and 1:05 with hybrid motor).  I'm inclined to think that car is doubling duty as a test bed for the hybrid drivetrain they want to move into the next version of the GT-R.

The car is "spoken for" by corporate when it is allocated to a dealer and has been claimed by them. It doesn't mean the dealer has sold it. Also, from the list I got I only see 6 matte grey GT-R Nismo's total for the US so if you get one this year you are lucky.

Except they are not using the terminology "spoken for", they are saying the 2015 GT-R NISMO is officially "sold out". That means that each car has a buyer.  Could some of those buyers be from the dealerships themselves who mean to flip them for a profit?  Sure, but all the 2015s have buyers waiting delivery per official sources.
