The Gt-R has stuffed the establishment. If you go on 6 speed forum in the Porsche 997 Turbo section there is a long thread with upset owner's about the GT-R . The fact is that its a good 10000/15000 cheaper than a specced up 997S let alone the Turbo!
The M3/C63 have no chance in performance terms and if you were lucky enough to get an early deposit on a GT-R then depreciation will only be very very mild for the first couple of years. A 56000 M3 will lose around 18000 in it's first year and thats even before the GT-R touches our shores.

It's game over

I can vouch for Marshall Nissan in Cambridge I know their dealer principal Dave Arrowsmith fairly well through the Nissan 350Z Forum .

I traded my 350Z to them, before my daughter was born......

There list is about 70 + already I think that's where a lot of the GT-R Info is coming from as someone from Marshall Nissan is quite active on the GT-R forum.

btw: Steve A I tried to send you a pm but your email box is full

THX U@K .

I was going to change my deposit with Middlehurst and go with the Worcester dealer but Middlehurst convinced me to stay and assured me that i would get a car in early 09.

Just need to find another 2500 now

Looking at the specs the only difference from having a base GT-R and the premium is auto lights and the Bose Stereo. I've had a bose system in a 997 and to be frank it was poor and i think i can live without the auto lights.

Datsun?

Very nearly at the point of putting a deposit down on the GT-R.

I was set on a M3, an easy decision BUT, specified as I'd like and I'm up at c 56k, thats 16k more than my 335i msport - and I'm not convinced of the value.

Then along comes a car that turns the rule book upside down.

0 to 60 in around 3.5s
0 to 100 in around 8.5s
Nurburgring in around 7.36mins

That betters the GT3 and turbo
Faster 0-100-0 than a corvette zo6

retail price 54k for the premium model
only 500 per year coming to the UK

So same money as M3, a full second quicker to 60, over 2 second quicker to the ton and very tasty looking IMO.

seriously tempted
