I have been on this forum for awhile now, and have wanted a GTR since 2008 when they were first released here in the US. I took delivery of my 2012 Gun Metallic Grey on June 1st, but have been really busy and I have not had time to take any pictures or make in introduction thread. Gun metal was not my first color choice, but the dealer I got the car from had this one coming in so I just took it. I'm much happier with this color than I thought I would be, it changes hue depending on light and looks amazing. I have a GMC Sierra that I use as my daily driver, but I drive this car as often as I can, just hit 2,500 miles tonight on the way to take the pics.

The only mods I have installed so far are the clear side markers, and an AAM "quiet" resonated midpipe. The midpipe sounds great, and that's the way the car should sound from the factory. I plan to do most of the basic bolt-on mods (dp's, catback, Cobb AP, filters, injectors, ext.) but for now I'm happy with the car the way it is.

I got a chance to take some pictures of the car today, I have not used my camera in a long time so I'm a little rusty. The daytime pics have too much light, as I took them around 2-3pm when the sun was too high, and the night time pics are a little crooked as I do not have a level on my tripod. Overall I'm happy with the way the pics came out though. You may need to click on the pics as I didn't resize them and photobucket may make them distort untill you open them up.

I have met a few of the local Long Island GTR owners, and look foward to meeting some more. I would really like to set up a meet before it starts getting cold!

Thanks, and I'm going to try and set a meet up soon, I know a few local people with GTR's who want to have a meet. I'm thinking somwhere in the Roosevelt field mall area. Its not too far from the city, or the people who have to come from Suffolk (like me).

Nice pics! Congrats on your new-ish car. In the night shots under that lighting, GMG looks a lot like Titanium!

It really does! I need to work on my editing and camera skills to get the colors right.
