Getting a PPI on a 2015 today and want to know what the threshold is between a reasonable amount and the previous joker dogged it out.

Vehicle was leased in Nov 2014 and has 5800 miles in it.

Thanks for the help!

Well since launch control is a feature of the car and is warrantied it won't show up on a PPI. There are other things like fluid temps, clutch, transmission, VDC-off readouts that could indicate a problem. If you are simply looking for how many times the car was launched you won't find it on a DBA at least.

Crud is that right? I thought I read somewhere that the ECU tracks it?

I have a 2015 with 3k miles and have launched it 15 times. It's built into the car for a reason so it's no different than asking," how many times did he drive it." Temps and codes, interior/body/paint damage and tire wear should be the only concern I would think.

There are some small paint chips in the front, PPI is currently on going, tires seem decent but haven't looked closely yet

I agree. Jeez I am in the top 5 OCD guys here and have even launched mine 11-15 times in 2 years.

Try and get the car up on a lift and check the very inner part of the tire. There could be tons of tread left and still be showing severe fraying/feathering in the inside. It's just the way the GT-R eats tires.

Curious- when many of you tuned your car, did you pull your 3rd gear to redline with the VDC off. I was told to do this by the tuner. Will this flag?
