It's OK I've seen worse e.g. 30-40k evo's

I think it's improved with the later variants compared to the 50-60k early cars.

Depends what you're used to. Honestly after sitting in a new RS6 for example, the GTR does feel very low rent. It's a combination of incessant rattles, lack of soundproofing and lower quality materials. The actual cabin design is fine, but you can't tell me that carpet on doors is acceptable to you! I haven't seen that on any car since the eighties! Also the attempt at sprucing up the dash, a-pillar and door trims is a little bit half arsed, as it's done in leather look vinyl, not real leather, same as the fake leather rear seats.

To be more upmarket inside, the GTR should have:

- Real leather dash, a-pillars, door linings and back seats
- Headling, and all scratching black plastic pieces (mostly rear) in alcantara
- Real carbon instead of mock aluminium centre console and door trims (looks very Hyundai cheapo)

All IMHO of course.

I had a A45 AMG Merc I know it's the cheapest AMG product but with the name Mercedes and AMG behind it you would expect a high class interior Wind noise excessive at anything above 50mph due to bad window seals (common fault) but the one thing I couldn't believe is it's like they forgot about the Sat/Nav and then decided to just stick it on the centre of the Dash (looks worst than a Tom Tom stuck on the Window)

That is why I like it with it's 1980/1990's retro interior and it's supercar performance - almost negative snobery:cool:

Something has to give. It has the performance of cars twice its price. To expect it to have the interior of cars twice its price as well is probably expecting a bit too much. That's fine, I'll stick with the performance.

I love the interior on my MY09, my m3 had better leather but thats it.

Maybe if your paying 80k for new one might start picking at bits and peices, but for me anyway am very happy

I don't have issue with any of the materials, just he bloody rattles that have started to appear. One behind the centre console and one rear passenger side, irritating as hell.

Dont find the seats the most supportive either.

Other than that i love it

The rattles do my head in. It does feel low rent too. But hey it's a Japanese car, what did you expect? I do t feel any significant difference between my11 and my10 for quality. In fact I prefer the silver to the dark grey trim and the paddles wore better on the older car.

Rattles? The interior on mine doesn't rattle at all. Feels really solid inside.
Now, the brakes, the bell housing and the oily bits? They rattle, but that's all part of the cutting edge design. One day, all cars will rattle this way. Oh, wait. No they won't. They'll be silent electric, with a sound track so kids can hear it coming and get out of the street.

Then I'll remenis about when I used to have a car that made some real mechanical noise.

Ain't got time to listen. Seeing too much blurr! :thumbsup:
