In Topic: 2016 Acura NSX

Yesterday, 11:53 AM



Most NSX buyers don't care about power. This car was designed to beat cars on a road course and not eat through a set of tires and pads every few track days like the GTR does. My disappointment with this car lies with the fact that it has taken 10+ years to develop.

In Topic: Carbon roof Nissan GT-R - Costa Mesa Ca. $1500

Yesterday, 11:46 AM



Who and how was it installed, and who and how was it removed? I'd be very leery of buying a used roof because edge delamintations could happen really easily if the panel isn't installed or removed correctly.

Super weird comparison. A Mustang GT vs a Z28?? They aren't even competitors, at all. The Mustang GT competes with the Camaro SS and the Challenger R/T or SRT8 challenger.
GT350 isn't released so the GT is all they have to compare. It would have made more sense to compare the old GT500 to these.

Honestly, I'm trying to understand how you can think this isn't stealing.  Someone spends time, money and effort to create something and someone copies it and that's ok?  Nissan spent time and money designing the aero kit for the Nismo and now someone someone reverse engineers it and  is selling it for a not so cheap price and you say there isn't anything wrong with this practice?   Have a cookie.  Baki, you gonna tell me that the Chinese "Land Wind" isn't stealing either?  You're the one being ridiculous.

A market requires a seller and a buyer.  These shameful copies only exist when there's people like yourself are willing to purchase them.  I guess we all know where you stand on this.
Sounds like capitalism to me. There are part vendors on this website that have been making knock off parts since the GTR's inception and they're allowed to sell their parts on here with no shame or problem.
