    So, I'm in the game for a new ride on top of my m5...

    So, i'm going back and fourth in my mind about GT-R, Porsche 911, M6, etc...

    My friend works at the Nissan dealer and I hit her up was like... yo, can you set up a test drive for me for that preowned GTR??
    She goes - exact words - "Gunmetal One? Manager will take you for test drive - customer's won't."
    I'm like... :facepalm:

    This is after I had test drove several porsches and an M6 - (all with ridiculous price tags, and all more expensive than the GTR

    How come japanese dealers all think their cars are like made of gold or some shit?
    Like, I walk into Porsche and was like ... I wanna check out your ____, and they are like aight we'll pull it right up :nodding:

    I bet I can go test drive a Murcielago before they let me drive a Nissan :laugh:

    The two worse dealers around me are Volvo and Ford... The Ford acts like the Boss, Cobra, and Raptor is gold. Volvo wants you to fill out paper work just for a test drive with a copy of your insurance, I have never had a dealer ask for that even at Porsche. Porsche on the other hand would not even service me in gym clothes. I came back the next day in blue jeans, silk camp shirt, casual leather shoes, ray bans, and my Omega watch. I had all kinds of service...

    When I bought my mint 98 Pontiac Trans Am WS6... I drove an ATV to the Chevy dealer, wearing gym shorts, ripped up shirt, and flip flops. I pulled up and they had just opened, said I am interested in the Trans Am. Sales guy said just a sec and he came back with tag and plate. Told me to take it for a spin, have fun... I came back with cash and bought it. Came to find out, the manager recognized me, when I was with my stepfather who purchase two vehicles within 3 years from them. But that was a small hick town, someone driving around on an ATV is nothing new.

    The problem here is going out in public in gym clothes. The only time you should do that is if you are going straight home from the gym.

    Just your problem.

    I have no issues with a Nissan dealership not allowing you to test drive the GTR. :)

    Btw, JV? I love your semi-gangsta wannabe style of speech. It really completes the mental picture I have of you.

    If I worked at a Nissan dealership, I don't think I'd let you test drive a Sentra.

    yo bitches, what's up with these dealers and shit all thinking like they own these cars or something? And those new cars, dealers be all thinking they have to keep them clean and low-mileage and shit? Keeping me from having a joyride and shit. Customers like me we don't care unless we're dropping money on these rides and then they'd better sparkle and have negative miles on the odo. I only roll in a fresh ride.

    While some of you may hate on the OP, I can sympathize. I can't stand how difficult dealerships make it to test drive a car. If I am going to be spending the next 5 years in this thing, I wanna be intimately familiar with it. That includes matters of ergonomics, performance, cabin noise, space, etc. Some of these things cannot be ascertained properly without spending a decent amount of time in the car. In my opinion, it's really best to borrow a friend's car to figure out what you do and don't like. I wish I could rent some of these cars for a day or two. I think Saturn actually used to let people test drive the car for 24 hrs or something (not that I would ever want a Saturn, and look what happened to the company). But I find it ridiculous that a salesman would that I am ready to buy a car after taking it for a 10 min spin.

    FWIW, I have also found that if you have an impressive job title, it's easy to get test drives. However, you still will get hounded by awful salespeople in terrible clothes.

    GT-R is a difficult thing because not many people have the car, so it's unlikely that you will have a friend that will let you take it for a spin. Maybe look for a used one on Craigslist or Autotrader. I am sure a private seller would be more accommodating.

    i dont got any rice boy friends who spends 80-100gs on a nissan lol :rotflmao:
    i want to see whats the big deal it is and see if i can be convinced to join the rice burner crew cuz right now, its all germany (i wish i could join the italian team but my wallet size doesnt increase in exponential increments like some people)

    yah i agree, but a lot of exotic cars they dont let you test drive unless you already have relationship with them... kind of a catch 22, really.
    but i guess its like a 'hazing' ritual to join the exclusive few where you gotta dive in blind and let them put in your butt a little
