they are one sexy car, but i keep reading about the "black box" in the car and alot of owners are losing their warranty because they are using the car for what it is meant for.

They are sweet rides, arent they? I like em much better in person rather than in the mags. Ive already seen 2 on the road and a few at the dealers. This one here in St. Charles had 2. How'd they manage that?!?!

I've seen two in person very close up. Theres a guy with a white one in my town. It looks alot better in person then in pictures. I went to meet and the two cars were like celebrities on a red carpet. I looked for a bit then left, its an amazing car, but I don't think its the best thing since slice bread, or the god of cars. The problem i feel with the GT-R is that it seems artificial, like it was built to be the best at everything, and to practically be a car right out of a gran turismo game. Some reviews have said thats how it feels when you drive it. It's an amazing car, but there's many cars id get instead. Still was sexy as hell, especially in white.

All cars will soon have "black boxes". The feds have mandated it. I think it starts in 2012
Back on topic. The GT-R is nice, but I would buy something else.

Yes, and the owners are stuck with a 10K rebuild! The car was not built to be beat on! They missed the American Market, you can take any GMC/Dodge/Ford performance car and do 100+ 1/4 mile runs no issues! The Americans and Europeans know why people buy performance cars and they engineer in the 'beat the snot out of it factor'.
