Well... I had a nicely modded bmw 335i 07... I know its no where near as fast as a gtr.. but it was stick, very fast and the new tunes keep making them faster!. problem is they dont make them twin turbo anymore...and i really dont want to buy the same car again.. Mine was totaled.. I got rear ended at about 40mph when at a complete stop.. got a lil injured as well,, anyway i was so against the gtr.. in pics its ugly (imo) and no old school clutch... The car has then since grown on me and the more research i do, the more I want.. My friend On this forum has a pretty nice one as well.. ill have to find his username he is on long island as well..

Im looking at 09's w low miles... My friend told me they can b made to have same performance specs as the 2012s pretty easliy? is this true? and what should i look out for when purchasing? I know on the 997 porsches u could get a read on mis shifts and what not.. Does this apply to the gtrs at all?

ives looked at m5's/m6's, porsches and so on......if that new twin turbo m3 was out then maybe.. but for now this is def the car i want.. esp since it has back seats!
Thanks guys.. hoping I can get a gtr soon

2009 can be brought up to 2012 power level with a tune only. No bolt on's needed.

The only concern is a VDC off launch. Dealers used to be able to download this quantity, but weren't supposed to tell. There are several shops in your area that should have a Consult III and can check.

Impossible to "mis shift" a GT-R. It will hit rev limiter only. Downshifting to a gear out of parameters causes a no shift.

Very few "basic" 2009's around, and there are few differences, but rather than upgrade, if you want the premium, get it first.

Took me about two months. There aren't a lot of these cars for sale to begin with, so the used market is fairly small and competitive. Be patient and enjoy the search.

yes, but as easy as the 09s? i was told to get an 09 for that reason
You're welcome to buy my '09. There's a thread around here somewhere. It still has plenty of room for growth.
