GT-R Owners Manual warns of messing with perfection

We just experienced firsthand the unbridled awesomeness contained within the body shell of Nissan's new über-Mechagodzilla, the GT-R. Apparently, Nissan is a true believer in the car's kickassedness and would prefer if owner's didn't eff it up with superfluous wings, flares and other accoutrements that have no hope of making the car better than it already is. Those who have imported a JDM GT-R to the United States will find this page in their owner's manual that warns in no uncertain terms against pulling a Paul Walker on their GT-R. Just leave the car be, folks. You can't do better than what Nissan already did, so don't try.

No doubt we'll be seeing people stupid enough to rice these to no end.

The gt-r could use a complete rebody, IMO; wings (already has a large factory one) & flares might just distract the eye from a seriously unflattering design. In profile, the front clip & the rear look like they're from 2 different makes and the nose is flat awful. Interior sucks, too.

I think it's f*@kin' bad!! I would still rather have had the money to import over about a '99-'02 Skyline. But at least finally we're going to get our own version. So great. Does anybody know what the price is going to be?

About 85k or so, IIRC but I may well be wrong.

Same is suggested of the CTS-V.

And I'm inclined to agree....though I'm all for customizing cars, these will be so rare that putting them all under the knife for boy-racer body mods would be criminal.

But I wonder what the opinion is on power tuning.
