D'oh, we ran out of chat topics.

Perhaps we can shift back into something automotive related, be it in a virtual or real form.

PS, here the latest chop job a Japanese magazine did on the R35:

IMO, they got it wrong, it will rough yet stylish...that is to Z-ish to be a GT-R.

The GT-R will most likely look similar to this:

The first pic is too Z-ish like you said. The second pic is very nice. The front end looks like a Skyline. I especially like the large opening for the intercooler in the front and the vents on the hood. The color ain't bad either. The headlights do look a bit small compared to those large fog lights. Huge fender flares on it too. I'm liking that second one a lot right now, but can't wait to see the whole car.

The 2nd pic is an MG X80. Sweet car. That would be the right direction for the next GT-R, although mantaining the Skyline traditions, such as the grill and cool tailights, among others.

Since Ian mentioned that he really liked the Mitsubishi Evolution. My friend just found a pic of the sticker price on a Evolution, with a huge ass mark-up on it.

Well, that took care of any (in)decisions I would have spent my Ziliions and Gillions of dollars. :lol:

For that kind of money I would either buy a 350Z with a nismo R-tune or an R32 from MotoRex....gezz...talk about a mark-up.

I hate it when dealers do that. When I was shopping for a car a few years ago I looked at the Xterra. The dealers had jacked the price up a good $10-15g's for it. There was no way I was going to pay that. Now you can easily get an 4x4 Xterra with a V6 for $25... not the $35+ they wanted 3 years ago.

Hopefully the Evo will come down in price by the time I'm ready to buy a new car. Otherwise you'll see me in a Mazdaspeed.

They will. Just wait a few years after the intital release and the demand and prices will start to fall. It's just marked up so high right now because its a very hot item and only because you can only find so many in the states. Just wait until production and shipments of Evol go up.
