indeed it is.. a totally different experience when I hit the highway.. the E92 just seems like a normal daily drive but with the R34 it just comes into life, somehow make a trip on road more interesting, like having fun factor.

Not for weekday drive in city though where jams are everywhere.

You have some superb taste in cars sir. Your E92 would be the choice for DD and long trips, but the R34 has always been the pinnacle of JDM for me, both from an aesthetic and performance standpoint. I gotta go with the Skyline, AWESOME car OP. WHP/WTQ figures for it?

My mind tells me the e92 but deep inside I'm thinking the skyline, I think I've only seen an R34 in person a handful of times. Both look amazing though.

hahaha you and I have the same contradiction! Both has its pros.. one muscular and the other streamlined... one's modern interior and the other 90's interior plastic... But a friend of mine is right... when you're in the R34, where do you find time to look in the interior, its either speedometer or front windscreen.

Nice R34. I always loved those growing up. It looks dated next to a modern car (e92). I'd keep it for nostalgia.

Earlier on for lending it as display to my friend's wheel sponsor for TAS. Did a hassle for changing for parts and wheels last minute over the night though.

The 335 for me. I'm probably older than all of you and the R34 is too boy racer JDM style
