I was trying to do this earlier in the year. Turned out to be financially irresponsible for me at this time. Great Car. Enjoy her, and congratulations.

I am one that doesn't really care for this car at all. No matter how fast they go.

I am a former Nissan owner and cannot get past the looks of this car. Sorry to say I would have gone Gallardo or R8 and be done with it.

The only GTR I would ever consider was the old R34.

But hey if you are happy than thats all that counts.

a new/newer lp570 is a bit out of my price range. I would really have to cut down on my car collection to get into one of those. Hell of a car though. I have the opportunity to drive one from time to time and it is just a hell of a car. 4.2l R8 is just not enough. I have driven a 5.2l R8 and I do enjoy the car. I am thinking about making some room for a fairly low miles used one but again since the M5's have been coming in I am hanging around at my local dealer more and more and I am really starting to fall in love with the car. So you just might see an Alpine White M5 in my garage in the near future I do not make it on here much but I will keep all you guys posted.

The shipper arrived last night with my Gun Metal GT-R; I love all the noises this car makes. it's very raw and visceral. The M5 is a nice car but I can't really subscribe to the philosophy of substituting real engine/exhaust sounds with recorded sound.

Very nice brother. Gun Metallic is such a beautiful color. I kind of wish I waited a bit longer to get the color. For the 13's We have over 15 white ones running around town in Phoenix and another 7 for sales at different dealers
Post up some pictures on here when you get a chance.
