I am having the same issue. I want to get a GTR and sell my 2018 BMW M3. But the prices are crazy. They want $104k for a 2016 stock and even more if the see it has wheels, bigger spoiler. So not sure if i should wait till the market equalizes or what... I hear that a FBO on GTR will get you like 640? I am at around that with my tuned M3. so would it even matter, does it drive that much better than an M3?

Not sure that GTR values will drop enough to offset the money you'll lose for not selling your M3 in this market. German performance cars aside from Porsche seem to fall off a cliff with depreciation, but you can get a lot for it in todays market. Even before this crazy market, the oldest and highest mileage GTRs seemed to bottom out around $60k.

Does it drive better? That's subjective. Is it a better performance car than the M3? Absolutely. You can get 600hp out of pretty much any decent performance platform if that's your goal. If you want 800hp or 1000hp+ I'd imagine the GTR is much better for that.
Yeah, I seem to see a few fellow M3 owners that have gone single turbo and boom wasted money. Reason why I don't want to go further in adding any more performance parts to gain 800hp. So I am in the market for a GTR Problem is Stealer ships want $100k for 2016 and I don't know if waiting a few months would even equalize prices.

Lovely colour man. Due to the market conditions, it's a great time to sell any car but a bad time to buy a used car. If you're going knew you maybe fine but wait time is longer to get a car anyways. But, if you have a vehicle on the way or a good one is available around your budget then I'd sale it or see a possible trade in can happened.

I've had a 2018 and 2017 gtr offers with average km. The history of both models was extremely weird. The 2018 spent its time in Toronto, Canada and each year went to Arizona, USA. It was a great spec but the orange seating was another turn off.

The 2017 was exactly what I wanted. It was tuned, came with a pair of rims and was one of my desired colour options. The carafe history was on point and every service from brakes to tires was done at a Nissan dealership. I even give my deposit in but the car was tuned and I wanted to know what's exactly been done before I pull the trigger. I called up the dealership who delivered and this car for years. Found out the bumper was repainted here as first owner curbed it. No biggie really. The dealer said it does void some warranties when the car is tuned and I asked him if he can check which ones. Once he opened it up on the software it stated the car was written off all warranties avoided. This car was also in Quebec and had a lot of on and off services. Pulled away from that one

At the time the gtr 2017 and 2018 was selling for 110K to 115K CDN. Still high but wished I pulled the bullet then but it's better to be safe than sorry. This car isn't cheap I know that's for sure haha

Actually this is the car I had and have sold for my dads highlander. I used the funds for a down payment on a future property though. The GT-R is next and I may pull the bullet this month. I do agree with a lot of people but still in the decision making phase. Still tryna get a test drive but all these dealerships aren't up for it. Let's see
Yah man, me too. I just have to drive one and see. But I always wanted a GTR so who knows.
