I think thats a bit too expensive then Justin for a grey GTR. Did u do some research prior to purchasing, visit some grey car-yards, etc?

Most young guys r buying up these high mileage Beamers from the auction houses because they want that classy image. Theyre only worth around 20K, not current shape nemore, yet everyone still oooo's and ahhh's over them, and thats the attraction. The modded jap import scene has somewhat died off with the young'uns, its the older 30+ generation that r now buying up the jap coupes. So the p plate squad has once again moved on, and the roads r now littered with 5+ yr old cheap luxury cars.

If you are going to use it on a track it is a really great car. It is a very very very ugly car imho but that doesn't matter on a track. You need to be fast and it does that really well, so go for it. And the fun per dollar is overwhelming

But I have to say again it is one ugly son of a *****.

If I didn't know what it could do I too would think it's quite ugly. But I've been finding myself quite infactuated by the way it looks.

And I realy love the last design, the R34 GTR. It's so fat, so mean looking. There's an aesthetic there, it doesn't follow "beauty". It's definitely not feminine like a Porsche or a Ferarri. It's far from timeless because of this perhaps. It's just aggressive, mean, demands respect.

I seem to love many cars
