Personally I wouldn't. The refinements are nice but in my humble opinion I think the 07-09 is much better looking. You can mod yours to be better but you can't change the look. Ultimately I think that's what it comes down too, which one do YOU think looks better.

 

+1, exactly as Sharpie stated....you'd be taking way too much of a $$ hit, when with a few minor mods...

 

Jason, I saw your car in the "Yesterday & Today" exhibit at Palo Alto, cool you got your car in there. It was a neat exhibit, (see your car in attached pics) I liked the vintage right hand drive Nissan Skyline GTR.

 

The exhibit had the original versions on the left side, and on the right side was the modern rendition..

 

I had my KR in the corral and was also one of the judges there.....crazy hot that day, I was sure my eyeballs were going to melt out of their sockets :hysterical:

I totally Agree with you guys I made my decesion today! I am going to keep my car! I am not rich and need to feel lucky I got the GT500 I got which I bought new in december. I wanted a 2009 but 2008 Was the same to me plus I got a great deal. I couldn't even buy the car two years before. Thank you for the pictures of the palo alto show! That was definitly me and my car how did you guess!! We should definitly hang out sometime. I agree it was so hot!! that day My eye balls did pop out! : )

I saw your name on the placard that was on your dash...and recognized it from your TS handle (username)

 

Where do you live? I'm down in Hollister.

There is no doubt the 2010 is going to drive circles around our 07-09's. It's just a better all around car. The 2010 GT is going to beat any 05-09 GT as well.

Thats the way the car business goes. Despite what people might say- the car companies build better cars each year.

A 68 GT500 is going to be owned in every single performance category by an 07 GT500, hell a Mazda 3 might be able to beat it in most as well!

performance wise, no doubt 10 is better....I hope they will throw a bigger engine in 12 rather than TT.

The motor is the same, just added a intake and tune to the '07 mill. Now, the '11 or '12 may be very interesting with a new motor, trans, chassis, suspension, etc...

that is right there factory extra 50 hp which is better, i am afraid they will go the wimpy way with V6 and TT. for 2012

I hope they don't go wimpy. Even if GM and Mopar quit in the HP wars, the imports (M3, C63, IS-F, etc) are still out there.

I hope so too, however i do realize that blown v6 can make sick power like in Nissan GTR but i still would like to see 7 liter engine thrown in the Shelby 2012 especially it is the end of the gas muscle era and the beginning of the electrical silent muscles, it will not happen, i can dream that though.

Keep your 08. It is easy to modify the 08 to bring it up to and beyond the 2010 performance levels.
