A friend owned a 2008 manual m3 and which was always driven sideways. Kept it for a year and jumped to a 2009 gtr with hks 570 kit. 6 month later he was totally fed up and sold it. I asked why? His reply was " it was amazingly fast but nowhere near the fun you can have with the m3 in terms of drifting and cheerful driving. He said his next car will be a Dct m3 with a supercharger not to miss out on the performance.
But do I care? Hell no! I still want a gtr!
