Posted in: New Nissan GT-R NISMO unveiled in Japan See in context

NISMO version way too expensive. Top end non-NISMO version almost as good and half the price. I still love the GTR looks - I owned one once upon a time - but agree it is getting dated now.

Dated, yes. IMO, the R-32 was the best looking of them all.

a fair matchup, and one the Nismo would win....

Porsche 911 GT2 RS...6:47.3s

3rd fastest lap time on the Nürburgring circuit in 2021 with a very close time for 2020.

I can't even find a comparable time for the GT-R.

One that the Nismo would win? I doubt it.

IMO, someone's been watching too many "Fast and the Furious" movies.

Note: "Tweaked" wasn't right. I should have said "street legal".

Enough of the "diversity and inclusion" ramble. I wish Shake Shack would concentrate on making a better tasting burger instead.

 It would blow away any Porsche on a track. Love to see it on the Nurburgring where it would set the track record I am certain!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but an untweaked GT-R could never "blow away", let's say... a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

The Porsche is in a different league.

Over the years, the Nissan GT-R has lost it's appeal and oh my, is it really ugly now.

Diversity and inclusion...shoved in your face and down your throat whether you like it or not.

Yup. China as a whole should be boycotted until the CCP is dead and buried.

Posted in: Do you think that once the pandemic ends and travel resumes, there will be strong international demand for tourism to Japan? See in context

@Boku Dayo: Chinese people aren't the Chinese Government. Retailers and the F&B industry will welcome them back with open arms after being starved a proper income for so long. What alternative universe are you living in where Capitalism doesn't exsist?

I'm not denying capitalism. I'm underlying the fact that our unbridled dependence upon China has gone too far. Hence the need to "take our business elsewhere" type of capitalism.

Yeah, I know that the Chinese people (not all of them at least) are the Chinese government, but as long as they allow Xi and the CCP to do as they please, they're complicit in the abuse.

In closing, go shop somewhere else from now on.

The problem is not about catering or not catering to inbound Chinese tourists (who are loaded with cash), but, as you yourself say, over-reliance on them. A lack of a plan B. Businesses will take the money if it's given to them. You make it sound (or maybe that's what you want) as if Japan should just say no to Chinese money. But if you were a business, would you really be willing to settle for crumbs only?

Yes, I am saying that Japan should say "no" to not just Chinese money, but to China as well.

On a larger scale too, look at where our "addiction" to China has taken us. It's time that companies rethink their strategy and pull what they can out of China.

BTW, if I were a business, I wouldn't have to rely on Chinese "wads of cash" and I'd certainly have enough foresight to make sure I wouldn't be holding my hands out for "crumbs".

Posted in: Osaka reports record infections, as gov't eyes tougher measures for Aichi See in context

If you are truly healthy, you are not going to die if you go out and enjoy yourself. And you can still do it while taking various precautions.

Most people could but the measures are for those that act irresponsibly and keep producing thousands of cases every day, if the measures were unnecessary it would be already obvious by the lack of new cases.

I wonder if those who are so much for locking down, whether they are not so much afraid to die, but rather afraid to live...

More the opposite, people that have no problem acting responsibly without irrational fear they are being deprived from their rights understand the value of the measures.

Looks like there are some folks here who have some common sense.

I guess I'm not alone.

Boku Dayo; Everything you do every day is a gamble. You need to be sensible enough to take into account everything to make your own judgements. Name calling people for having choices different than yours is par of a societal problem these days. Rather than understand others rational it’s straight to name calling.

Anyone who risks the well being of others around them in any way whatsoever, is a FOOL in my book.

You're entitled to your "opinion" and I'm to mine.

Besides, who gets offended by being called a fool these days?

Name calling? Grow a skin, please. LOL

Maybe, but there'll be a lot less catering to inbound Chinese tourists which isn't all that bad since many of the businesses here were over-reliant on them in the first place. In other words, they put all their eggs into one basket and they paid the price.

Right now, the global pandemic tells me different. Live we will *once the situation is under contro**l*. I for one, unlike a lot of the fools posting here am not willing to "gamble" with the well being and/or the lives of my loved ones (or my own as a matter of fact). The comments that I've highlighted above are truly selfish and irresponsible.

I fail to see why some people just "have to" go out drinking at a bar, izakaya, nightclub or whatever.

It's not that they're going to die if they don't go. Actually, they're more likely to get infected and die by going there.

Why can't they just be happy to have a couple of chuhai at home instead?

Essential outings only. Stay home and stay safe.

Posted in: In Japan, you can now earn money for turning your car into an anime itasha See in context

Its a clever idea to bring attention from a wide variety of the public to your product, it might definitely stand out in the sea of the same looking sedans, SUV and box-shaped keis you see everyday in Tokyo. Just a few days ago I saw a tuned Fairylady with some anime stickers on it, paired with the new colorful Matsudo (Chiba) number plates, nothing too tacky, but it definitely stood out in the road.

If you need these sticker ads to help your car "stand out", then you've got bad taste in cars. There are ways to customize your car without having to resort to slapping on ugly stickers.

Posted in: Once 'green' plug-in hybrid cars suddenly look like dinosaurs in Europe See in context

I'm OK with a modern day hybrid vehicle (THS II for example) for my current driving needs. I might consider an EV for driving to work or running short errands about town, etc., if I could afford to own more than one vehicle (one for commuting and one for long distance driving and/or weekend sports driving) . So, I guess that as a car enthusiast having only one EV is not the "right" choice. Besides, I relish the sounds, smells, vibration and sensation that only an ICE can provide, no matter how fast EV's might be these days. I'll take the "driving" experience over the "green" one any day.
