For a base price of $98,000, over 100k for some extra features found in my MR, no thanks. GTR is a beast no doubt, but I will take my MR and keep the 60,000 difference.

Me....2008, high milage then just add Alpha 12 and full Sheptrans mod. No need for 2013 since you will modify it anyway.
2009 was the first year. I've been looking at used ones. I'd opt for a 2010. The transmission and launch control issues on the 2009s make me nervous.

This.

As much as I love high-performance cars.. 60,000$ for this car is enough for me. I think the highest I would go is 70. Over 100? That is just a stupid investment in my eyes. Could buy a base lancer for 14,000$ and put 80,000$ worth of modding into it and it will spank the GTR.

Regardless, no I will not be buying a RWD vehicle :).

why did you buy your evo then? should have bought a 4k civic and dumped 20k in it, and it would have walked all over your evo... (as you can see, it was a useless statement to make)

regardless, the GTR is not RWD for people who can really drive :)

here is how I analyze it, a GSR can never do a 2.7 0-60, the notchy tranny would take longer than that to shift..

So coming to a MR, the car wont be coming anywhere close to a 0-60sec unless you are making over 600whp and so far the tranny needs a lot of development, and if something is developed its going to be very expensive..

So there is no substitute to a GTR, no matter what you say, there just isint.

Yes sir.. not a Civic but a base lancer with a 10 yr warranty (irrelevant if you mod the car of course). But you're right 20k in any vehicle could pretty much beat any 30k vehicle.

However with the EVO's, you know what you are paying for and I am not much into the modding scene :)!

GTRs is a car that you get if you have money to wipe your butt with, 98,000$ is an apartment building. Rent three levels = monthly rent paid off + you have land and an investment in your name. Doesn't seem logical. That being said, if I was a mulit-millionaire I would get a GTR and a Supra and a vette maybe an old mustang too.

LOL. A car being an investment? If you buy a GT-R, don't drive it and keep it for a few decades. Maybe itl appreciate in value (not likely, but maybe).
nope, I din say that :) .. you buy the apartment building at a 30yr mortgage, use the rent to pay for the GTR.. so 100K out of your pocket, your investment stands and you drive a GTR!

2012 is what I am going for. In august is the plan. I might say fuck it and use the money for something else. We shall see what happens. 12 is the "best" deal out of all the gtrs, why? Suspension, brake upgrades that put on it to begin with are 12 grand and are much better than the previous ones, not to mention that you start off with more hp than the others even for modding. Cai, ypipe and tune = 100-130 whp over stock. Which that on a '12 is 500+ whp not on the previous ones :)

Well, it *might* spank a GTR - no guarantees though.

In any case you'd be stuck with a $14,000 Lancer. That probably wouldn't get $14K when it was sold.

What part of Detroit are you buying in? Or do you mean a down payment on an apartment building? Or you talking a south-side duplex?
