    122, still slower than a Z06 even with the updates.

    These are more realistic times though, good job by motortrend.

    ^^^ Agreed...went for a ride in one and realized a couple things:
    A) Its brutally fast from 0-100 then after that power takes a dive (and I'm looking at this in comparison to other similar HP cars such as the Z06 etc..., not the M3)
    B) As sticky said it has absolutely NO SOUL. I guess this is subjective, but it just feels very impersonal (if that makes any sense).
    C) I would NEVER trade my M3 for it whatsoever (especially if supercharged), its an overpriced nissan in my eyes.

    This is JMHO, and I know many of you will disagree - but to each his own .

    2.9 seconds 0-60

    did you people get that?
    Also, 0-60 means $#@! - its just based on traction. Point being, racecars are not and will never be AWD - I'd rather sacrifice a half a second to 60 from a dig and wave at you as im flying by because your car falls on its face in triple digits due to the much greater drivetrain loss and weight of the AWD system. Also, nobody races from a dig in this day and age (with the expection of being at the track, upon which all of the high HP RWD guys will be running slicks, which will negate the AWD's advantage) because its not worth snapping halfshafts and drivetrain parts. High Hp races are always done from rolls, where any AWD will suffer. Run the GTR (even the new one with the "added hp and 2.9 0-60 time") and Z06 on the street - the vette will come out on top everytime.

    And as for the GT500, its a pig - if that car shedded about 800-1000 pounds it would be a monster.

    Review says the opposite. They say the added power and the new ECU make the driver substantially more involved than the pre facelift version.

    Giving more power has nothing to do with the fact that its a soul-less engine. My 335 had alot more power than my M3, but my S65 has soul and the N54 didnt, at ALL.

    i understand your opininos as far as the car in concerned but as an enthusiasit your the last one that should be saying the car is over priced!! What is that based on? Performance? If thats the case an m3 is way over priced, or your gunna say the interior?? ITs main comp is the 997tt and that car is north of 150k!!! IS that over priced or is an interior worth 70k!! The car is not overpriced at all,it may not be for everyone but its a great value for your money, unless your a badge whore that will pay exrta if it was badged an infiniti or a pcar lool...

    ^Mike not to go off topic, but just seeing the race video of the F458 vs Turbo S, made me wonder something. You have a faster 60-130 time than Drew (dlsj5). But yet you lost to the Turbo S (w/out NOS). The F458 took the Turbo S by 1.5-2 car lengths. And Drew beat a F458.

    So made me think if you 2 raced next to each other his car would be faster,

    but since you have the faster 60-130 I would think if you ran next to each other your car would be faster. (old car Click here to enlarge )


    My 2 oposing ideas. Thats weird, right? Made me wonder why? Conditions? Weather? Obviously done in different places but it made me think, when I watched the vids.

    (thing has nothing to do with either kit, nothing to do with ESS, nothing to do with Gintani. Im just wondering about the outcomes and the cause, because they contradict each other )

    A 458 makes you feel alive, you pay for intangibles. The GTR is just a machine designed around a set of goals. The Japanese are great imitators, not innovators. They took a target, the 997 turbo, and did their best to reach it. It may have the specs on paper but it will never feel or drive like a 911 which is part of what you pay for. A GT3 may be slower than a GTR in a straight line, but it is a far more exhilarating drive.

    You should know having driven an M3, there is more to a car than just its specs or numbers.
