the new GTR is a horrible car. transmission needs to be replaced after 30,000 miles. not to mention all of the monitoring they have on those things. you cant tune it or add any kind of performance part. It has a black box that records your driving for their warranty purposes. You cant even put a different set of wheels on the thing without it knowing something is "wrong"

oh, and turning off the traction control and driving will void your warranty. agreed; horrible car.

i dont think that a $76k car that can compete with $200k+ cars is horrible but that is Fn' stupid that it voids the warrantee if you drive without traction control!

AMS has hacked the PCM on the GTR. A kid lcal to me has a white one and his dad is loaded and he drove it last summer and it spent the winter there getting tuned and parts made for it. He wont say the power its making but its a bit more.
