Agreed that the back seats are tiny and of little use. But if the car had no back seats at all, the insurance rates would be EVEN higher. So they do have some real value after all.

I love my car!
Really? JDM version has automatic headlights...

One handed driving not recommended. but all of those are just quibbles given how great the car is in every other area.
JDM also shuts the headlights off automatically when you turn the car off. Grooves in the road a a pain, although my friend is running Dunlops and he says that that is much better than the bridgestones.

yes the movement of the steering wheel in relation to the road grooves is a little disturbing, especially at super high speeds. My e60 M5 rides through them....

Just picked up my new GTR. There is a rattle in the rear end. The dealer said it may be the 'floating' rear brake discs. Sure enough, over bumpy roads it rattles, apply the brakes and the rattle goes away!

Has anybody else had this problem and could they fix it?

Other than the rattling rear brake discs, a lack of parking sensors, the GTR is the most amazing machine I have ever driven. I have owned a V10 M5, two M3's, two Corvettes an a bunch of other cars and the GTR kills them all.

Out of curiosity, what did you guys pay for your GTR's in your various Countries. Here in Australia we have to pay over $180,000 AUD ($150,000 US) for a premium model?

Wow, that's high in pricing. I guess 200% duty there? With that price, you can buy a Spec-V model in Japan.

No automatic lights, no parking sensors and the side mirrors dont tilt when you go to reverse.

I noticed after washing and then drying the car, if I put my windows down, then up, water gets all over the glass from inside. Does this happen to anyone else?

ditto. And if you open the trunk immediately after washing and drying the car (e.g. to put away the cleaning materials), water drips off the trunk lid and onto the car.

Also, you can't use the windshield washer while the driver's window is open without washer fluid dripping onto the inside of the driver's door. But I guess that's the price we pay for having the superb aerodynamics (no rain gutters) that allow the top speed of 193 mph.

Yep, learned this one just the other day. Another interesting feature to the car.
