Not true. The first version of launch control (LC1) allowed the car to rev to 4500 rpm but had some transaxle failure issues which brought about a class action law suit. The settlement allowed Nissan to reflash launch control (LC2) which lowered the revs at launch to around 3K rpm. If the car has LC2 reflashed on 09 MY, there shouldn't be any issues on the warranty.Yeah, if you touch anything on that car it voids the warranty. I also heard if you use the launch control more than a certain amount of times it voids the warranty. Just nuts.
It looks like we live in the same city. My insurance for the GT-R is about $1,300 a year. I'm not sure what you have on your driving record and how old you are. :dunno:fyi, my insurance quote for the GTR is double what it is for the M5. some places won't even insure it. Geico was giving me problems insuring it.

Rabdog - In all honesty do you believe it is better than an E60 M5 as a daily and weekend track warrior?
I am looking to get in to track work once a month, nothing serious just a few laps here and there. Can you drive it as a daily without major service issues or wear and tear?
I dont know if I am sold on it, I like the M5 sound, and rear wheel drive...
I do appreciate your taste for white
Avi8tir GT3 your is beautiful just drove a buddies 2010 and for NA motor its amazing performance very impressed!! Just need to get used to the rear engine drive almost lost looped it going hard into a hard right turn. :wroom:
M5aud yeah its complicated right there with ya good luck on your decision...Porsche gets my vote for styling, but bang for buck the GTR is it for initial purchase price. Servicing etc Porsche is cheaper... So compliacted!
M5Jed I'm a hard core BMW Enthusiast and love my M5, but i'm just fortunate enough be able to afford both cars so I went for it to try something new especially for the track. As for a 22 year old M5 dont think it compares to todays BMW technology but they were ultimate machines for their time. Im here to give my opinion from both a owner of a E60 M5 and GTR and how they are completely two different machines and should not be really compared performance wise.ehhh, its a Nissan. 20 years from now, it will be a piece of junk ricer, just like all the ricers. I have yet to find a 20 year old ricer I can lust over, none whatsoever. Take a 22 year old M5, I guarantee you an adrenaline rush every time turn the key.
I mean no disrespect to the owners of the GTR, but you're on THE M5 board, we're a weee bit partial to the beast. Sorry. LOL!
The new F10 will be in my Stable soon.
