I didn't mean to refer to you. You drove the car and formed an informed decision on your impression of the car.

As for what to do with 70k, I wouldn't buy an m3 or c63 for 70k.

When the c63 pp is used in 2 or so years, it will be 45-50k an represent a great value.

I don't think a gtr or 997 turbo can be compared in terms of price or daily driveability. I've driven my friends 997tt a lot, and it's fun as hell, but awful as a dd bc it's so damn small. It also doesn't cost anywhere near 70k
