"tie in sales" such as forcing someone to use your service to get warranty is generally illegal in the U.S. as part of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

It specifically prohibits manufactures denying or cancelling warranty based on where service is done.

http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/buspub...m#Magnuson-Moss

in order to be allowed a "tie in sale" such as forcing someone to only get the product serviced at your dealership you have to prove to the FTC that you product requires such a measure and can not possibly be serviced by anyone else.
Which is not an easy thing to do. I have personally never heard of a car manufacturer being allowed such an exception.

As long as the service is done correctly there is very little chance Nissan could deny warranty.

Some stealerships may try to get away with this but, in the states it's not legal to deny a claim based on where service was done and even if the work was done incorrectly they can only deny warranty on the specifc parts incorrectly installed or serviced, they can not cancel the warranty as a whole.

I don't know who or where that pic came from, but that is it! No ifs or buts, that is it. Nissan will be pretty angry to see that pic.
thats not exactly it but i think its 99%. the carbon wont be there and the area where the GT-R badge is has changed. but if you look at the brochure and see those canard bumps they are the same. so looks like the air ducts are indeed gone

this was sent to me by a sup this morning

while this is rendered off of the proto picture. i really think this is it

Obviously it could be very close, however that is still a photoshop. The side mirrors from the Proto give-it-away from a mile's glance.
see my above post.

yeah its a render off the proto image BUT. if you look at the brochure (that has the real pic) you see the little bump and side reflector that exactly match this. so who ever made this render has seen the GT-R since its a flyer from the ZELE store anyway

I recognized it from a few months ago at my dealer's. I was just shocked to see it here without anyone heralding its significance

Also MC, the projectors are the ones from the Proto, not the test mules's.

On closer look the mirrors aren't correct, but whoever did this is from Nissan. That is an absolute 99.99% copy of the real thing.

yeah of course that too plus the proto spoiler and all. but it think whats significant to take from this image is is the shape of the headlight and the especially the canard like areas instead of the air ducts. look at my red arrow a few posts up in the brochure

Yes, I agree. Still don't know on the canard, though. We'll see. Also, keep in mind that the side reflectors will be necessary for the USDM.
