    I was skeptical at first, but after a few test drives I was convinced this was the right move. I love the GTR but this is a completely different driving experience and definitely a better fit for what I want out of a toy right now.

    Besides, I can always get another R35 later :)

    That car is the automobile representation of several girls I've drunkenly hooked up with. Great body, outstanding engine and performance, legitimately perfect on paper. But what the fuck is wrong with that face???

    welp, now that we've accepted the GTR is gone, we might as well keep moving forward.

    So what's going to be the first mod? lol

    I like the way this thing looks *shrugs*

    It really is.. Chevy did their homework on this one

    Chevy just announced the ZLE can now be optioned with the 10 speed auto.. obviously faster but I'd still rather have the manual

    Here's what I have planned:
    1. Wrap
    2. Castrol SRF brake fluid
    3. Second set of wheels (likely BC Forged) for the street with Michelin PS4S tires
    4. Cat back - thinking Corsa to retain factory valve function but may just say fuark it and go with an aFe system that doesn't have valves
    5. CAI
    6. Set of slicks for the factory wheels when I use up the stock tires - probably 305F/315R or 305 square scrubs
    7. After warranty is up, (or I'm comfortable voiding it lol) I'll add pulley, cam, heads, tune, etc. to get ~700-750 whp. Anything beyond that will begin to ruin the purpose of the car IMO
