12s are the new 13s!

It's hard enough to run a deep 11 let alone a sub 10 second pass especially in a car with IRS.

ISO fail because there was fcuk all light when some of the pics were taken =\

I was considering a drop, but i sorta cbf with any of the hassles (i.e. speed humps / driveways / rubbing in the rear guards)

LEDs are going to be installed in Jan, along with new interior trim (damn titanium shadow), and valve adjustment.

Wouldn't be much more than the running costs on an M3. I know which one I'd rather have!

Define very expensive.

If you can afford $180k for the car, you can afford to service it.

Pricing from Nissan
10000km - $600
20000Km - $600
30000Km - $2500

The prices I listed were from Nissan Von Bibra in QLD for servicing a GTR here, in Australia. Again, its a $180k car, not a $40k car.

BMW routinely change all the fluids when cars come in for service don't they? Oh wait, "lifetime fluids."
