I traded my 08 Evo X for an 08 BMW M3. The Evo X was faster, especially around corners. It was such a blast to drive on track, on twisty mountain roads and a lot more direct and much more feedback over the M3.
Why I traded it out was because I couldn't stand driving it on the highway. The 5 speed manual made the engine spin at 4k+ rpm constantly at any speed above 70mph. It was crazy noisy. Also, the point and shoot directness and road/engine feedback it gave was great on track but also pretty tiring in daily driving. I used to boast about eating M3s on track and it wasn't very hard at all. But all out track performance is not what the M3 is about. I wanted a more all around car. The M3 delivered.
