911 Turbo thank you. At least then you are actually comparing AWD to AWD.

Besides the GT3 is not a comfortable car you can even pretend to use somewhere other than the track or taking on the street to be obnoxious.

Yeah **** skylines i wouldn't want there waranty if they where that stupid. BTW what do they do if you buy a car with no NAV system i don't know about the rest of you guys but i absolutley do not any way shape or form of being tracked anywhere near me while i am driving. If i breack the limit etc, and they catch me it is a different story but if cybernanny catches me that is bullshit becouse we all know computers are only as competent as the person/s who program them, and even then with the wrong interpretation you can get in a world of hurt. If any of that **** is true i hope they dont sell a single ******* car they can choke on there poser skylines.

I have gotten one. 996.

Amazing car.

Luxury + Astounding performance.

Rather have it then the 300hp atom I got a ride in later that day.

AutoX whoring = win. The atom was on the street, GT3 on the course.

996 C4 is absolutely by far my favorite of all time car to drive, except I hate hate hate HATE the shifter.. Feels worse than my Mazdaspeed6 shifter, but thats just me. The MS6 is the very first car I've ever owned or driven on daily basis which didn't have a shifter sticking OUT of the transmission, so I'm really used to a VERY tight pattern. Honestly though I wouldn't be that petty about a 996. The car I drove also had some retarded priced aftermarket exhaust system on it and the sounds which came from that car.. TOTAL SEX.

Same goes with most cars you take to the drag strip if you read the tiny fine print. Evo's are known most for that. Take your Evo 8/9/X to the strip to pwn some newbs and when you get a photo mailed to you of your license plate and a letter that says "you went to the drag you broke warranty blah blah blah".

99% of dealerships that see a warrantied car with a cai on are going to void the whole powertrain warranty thats nothing new, this all seems like simple **** that will be bypassed easily.

Take your plate off at the track
I've heard of Mazda employees in disguise grabbing pics of RX8 plates with their camera phones at the track. Subie probably does it too.

nutshell: part must be proven to cause failure to void warranty.

Problem is it will cost you to fight a dealership to have them honor your warranty. That's what they bank on.

unless listed by the company to void. I work for chrysler parts and all the performance parts show in the fine print that if you install any performance part that your warranty will automatically be voided. I think its funny because so many srt owners but factory upgrades to keep their warranty but its voided as soon as you install the part.

nismo parts don't void a nissan warranty (i don't believe), thats just dumb that chrysler parts would, or any other factory parts for that matter. And if something breaks just put the OEM parts back on then take it back

Does the parts counter or saleman tell the customers this before they go ahead and spend thousands on factory performance upgrades? or do they tell them after they fucked up their cars.

Yes you do, my main point is at the end of the day you have a Porsche in the garage and not a Nissan. Sorry, you will never convince me to pony up 100 large for a Nissan. Ever.
