You are missing the point! Have you ever heard a saying 'Give a dog a bad name and it sticks'?

Two people have already stated that the association of the GTR with chavs is putting them off buying another 35. That is my point!

In fact of all the things said on this forum, this is one of the stupidest comments Ive read.

When I come to sell my GTR and buy, for instance, a MP4 12c, Ill go on the McLaren forum and keep saying chav this, and chav that. Im sure that will drive the prices down, and Ill get myself a bargain.

Jesus!

What is it with people on this forum

Mclaren owners already depreciating the car with their chavvy antics

I thought revving your car so hard making flames and melting your bumper was a skyline thing

Anyhoo....It still doesn't work. Its doesn't matter how you try and explain yourself. The fact that I wasn't mocking or complaining, just merely pointing out, that saying a car is a "chav" car on this forum will not devalue it. Not a penny.

Simonh, can I introduce you to this kettle.

Its not black or anything, but it does think you're.....
my vocabulary is fine, your understanding perhaps less so.... anyway carry on I am sure you can find a few more expletives to use.

I have to admit that I am perhaps a little at fault here. I know it's a little shallow and conceited to worry too much about the image that a car conveys, but although it wouldn't keep me out of a car, I would rather a car with no obvious negative connotations. I assumed that the GTR would be more neutral, as it's less well know by the layman, and hence has no image either way.

Perhaps it's all in my head. I've never asked anyone, so what do I know!??

I would say that - in the grand scheme of things - the GTR has a pretty good image. I have only ever had positive comments and feedback when driving mine. Certainly no one has ever implied that it is a chav car - something I used to get a bit of when I had the Evo. Porsche and BMW/Audi have a terrible image. The chap who details my GTR has a customer who drives a 458 and he gets quite a bit of negative reaction - he was once even spat at! I think the GTR has a lot less of a snob factor about it than German marks and Italian exotica and people perhaps assume (sometimes rightly) that you drive the car for the car and not to pose or sport a dick extension badge.

I didn't call you anything. It was the kettle that inferred you were a expletive.

I apologise, the fault is mine in expecting you to be able to understand the abstract manner in which I inferredthe idiom.

You are right. I am making my R32 look bone stock apart from the wheels even getting rid of the shitty trust spats in hope that I do not attract and attention or to be classified as a chav. No stickers nothing at all. It's sad it has come to this but it was inevitable as prices came down even on Skyline models. That said I love the Skylines and would never not own one kind or another. I would have to be careful and keep mods under the bonnet and out of the way.

My view on wraps? The crazy colours ruins it and most will know it is usually wrapped. About not being able to buy class that is true you just need to look at footballers maybe they can afford good cars and dress in expensive clothing but their view on life and their etiquette would be linked to their up bringing.

It's just an age thing Rob I'm sure no one else will make the association .
Having now looked at the Gossamer character on the web, I get it. I love the colours and contrast from what we've seen so far too.

Keep up old chap, I never said you called me a thing. Do you have difficulty reading as well as thinking?
