Things are a bit different on the west coast. This area is very "suit & tie" and most are being driven by those types or their spouses. Those guys LOVE Porsches and Mercedes. I see such a comparatively small number of GTRs so they stick out a bit more.

Fair enough. That thumbs down wasn't for you by the way, in case you weren't sure.

I know, I meant to remove that from the quote.

The E60s M5 at MSRP really didn't have the interior of a 80k+ car neither do many cars for their price every mercedes has the same interior even including a SL63 amg compared to a lowly C class with sport package. Interiors are almost every car are utterly sub par I really don't think it's a huge selling point. For example sit in any exotic pre 2010 they're are all hideous interior for a car of their price. You are buying a 250k+ exotic you still have too spend 20-30k extra on worthy interior and pick your finishes/stitching of your choice. Even now a days diamond stitching alone on almost any car is 6-7K package at least.

People give the GTR lots of crap for having a launch control that voids warranty... BMW did the exact same thing with the E46 M3 at first it was 10 launches no warranty then they changed it to 20. Even 911s have the same warranty on their PDKs you can use launch control at every light and think they will cover your warranty on a trans won't happen ever unless you know the owner of the dealer.
