G20 M3

MT pure model sounds kind of cool

Quote:
Instead the Pure versions (production name still tbc) will use a six-speed manual transmission, and their rear-wheel-drive layout will be complemented by a quicker-acting electronically controlled diff lock.

To underline their position as totally immersive hardcore slide-masters, the Pure editions are set to get restyled aprons front and rear, their own wheel design, an optional standalone signature paintjob (unconfirmed for the UK), special fabric and alcantara upholstery, colour-coded cabin trim and bespoke instrument graphics. Slightly cheaper and focused, the Pure versions could have what it takes to become the M divisionís real McCoys.

I'm torn on this. Part of me is annoyed that they will be releasing the new M3 so soon after the G20 launch and that maybe I should have waited. But then I'm not so sure I like the looks, it will probably cost more, and there are always 1st-year issues.

Finally, if I want a MT (and I do), I'm not sure the performance of the MT model will be all that much better than the one I have.

Anyway, I have mine now and I really like it.

Rebadged and tarted Primera (a Euro market Nissan) that used the same SR20DE in the Sentra.

I thought the G20 only used the Sentra SE-R engine. Good for 140hp I think.
