That's not what people mean. They are happy with the M3. Why test drive a car they are pretty sure they will fall in love with and then waste a bunch of money upgrading to? Their decision not to test drive is basically a financial one.

I love the GTR, but honestly I have no desire to own one myself. I like changing gears myself, love RWD, and just have no desire to own such a heavy car regardless of the performance numbers. I've taken a 25 minute ride in a GTR at Laguna Seca so I know what it's capable of. It's just not for me.
