Question Can an owner of the new 2011 GTR

Give me the full SP on the new GTR, I have been abroad so if I have missed a thread please redirect, if not give me your Honest opinions, is it worth the extra and how is the car in general.
I have read much on here and driven the old car (2010), just on the edge of next purchase. Thanks in advance.

MY2011 impression

I have had mine for 6 weeks now. I previously had a MY2010 which I put 17000 miles on in 10 months - eg too much so I decided to change.

Car feels more planted, better ride quality - less clunky, feels different in the way it puts the power down.

Personally I think the car is much better. Can't really say anything about the fuel economy being better.....

For me just more refined -

Thats very good IMO, I do almost all Miles on the open road, no real town work at all, so looking good for me, I just could not live with 12/15MPG all the time.
I am going to test drive the new 2011 car next week, looking end of the year change, I have the only 2011 550i M Sport to date in the UK so not sure how I am going to move it, maybe pistonheads.

Moving on a 550i within a year will surely hurt, wouldn't you be best to keep it for a few years, unless you really don't like it and are prepared to take the hit?

Why are you ditching the 550i so soon? I would imagine that'll be a hard sell given the new M5 is on the horizon and that's probably your target market!

Yea moving it next Jan would be when I am looking at not before, to much of a hit. If I don't get a good price I may have to keep it a bit longer.

I have considered the M5, price may be "High though", I will have to see what I am offered and go from there.
I may well get a great price from BMW to stay with them against the M5, we'll see. I still want the GTR though

Godders is wondering what affect the GT-R has on the relativity of space and time.

Hate to say it, but if you had bought a GT-R when first interested, you would be facing a lot less depreciation than you are going to be selling the 550i...
