Thumbs down Nissan must really think their customers are nuts

Check out this option for the GT-R (even for Snap-On, this is a massive stretch):

Standard Tool Kit
$760
  • This 7-piece Standard Tool Kit features a flathead screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, pliers, two box-end wrenches, a flashlight, and a pair of gloves.
  • It comes in a durable and stylish leather case that can easily be stored below the front-passengerís footwell
  • Dealer-installed

With the R35 being a world product, Nissan has to try to compete with the likes of Porsche and Ferrari for boutique items. Have you seen what THAT **** costs?

Douche bag car owners deserve douche bag tool kits.

Did I say that out loud.

Maybe in 60 years from now, the kit will be worth tens of thousands as a collectors item to accompany a low mile classic. But for now, 12 bucks at Harbor Freight gets you the same damn thing.

In 10 years it will be like the top secret oil cap cover people are selling for $350, and special people actually seem to buy.

I'm definitely going to buy this very expensive/impractical tool kit and hold on to it for 15 years to re-sell on ebay

Nissan actually mentions the "Dealer-installed" nugget of goodness all over the accessory pop-up pages. They use double-asterisks to re-emphasize that the item is "[**] Dealer-installed" after they've already mentioned it on the same page. I suppose that's the bulk of the cost right there.

Funny you say that. When I had my Trailblazer SS, people wanted hundreds for the factory tow receiver cover. They're no longer made and supposedly pretty rare. Meh.

Y'all just need to have some perspective....



$125,000.

At least the tool kit is functional. Although no one will ever use it. "Hello, triple-A?"

'Nuff said.
