HELP

Im back again after 2 years. I'm currently driving a Lamborghini Gallardo lp550-2 2013. but I think I want to go back to a newer GTR. 15/16 or even the new shape.
So the big question, am I making a mistake?

Nope.... Go for the My17 it's a much nicer car inside out and performance, downforce and handling has been vastly improved.

The Lambo is simply head and shoulders above the R35 except the fact you'd be daft to use it daily and put miles on it, unless you've money to burn.

The R35 on the other hand can do it all day every day, turning almost as many heads as the Lambo in the process.

If I had the money I'd have the Lambo in a heartbeat but until then my R35 ticks all the right boxes.

Vastly? Pish.
I watched em making a new one and apart from the skin and the eurobox interior, it didn't look much different me. Sort of, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Stand well back everyone

Sorry OP, stick with the Lambo. Datsun are still making fat rusty shit, and the customer service department also handle the drowning of puppies.

Stock for stock and pound for pound the gtr is a better car, in my opinion lambo's and similar looking cars are mostly for the look and sound of the exhaust, Id happily line up with any stock lambo in the same devision and feel confident on power and handling for half the price

I love my 35, but sometimes how you get where you are going is more important than how quickly you get there

So how would a lambo get somewhere that a 35 couldn't infact I think it'll be the complete opposite

Lambo looks better all day long, is this just a toy or do you use it more often?

One of them is an over priced, slow, lump of Italian unreliability but pretty

The other is a Japanese missile, reliable, tuneable, affordable and pretty

its not used everyday but I've put 3000 miles on it since march. been to Europe a few times. just liken the idea of a Gtr as it can be used more often as its not mileage sensitive.

But one of them will always hold its value over a Jap car
