Man P prices are insane, I'm so happy I could get my dream car, and the options I wanted, could've added a few more, but I won't spend that much, so many options, wow, stiches, leather, man, so much
I have owned many bmws over the years. 4 of them m3's. 1 e36 1 e46 and 2 e92's. Growing up I was always fond of these cars and always felt that bmw cars in general felt better than anything else. Quite honestly, I never imagined owning anything else. I was never really a fan of Porsche, never liked the styling and the sound of the flat six was a big turn off for me. There were several factors that ultimately led me to buy a Porsche 911. The biggest reason was its relative light weight, small dimensions and sporty character. I absolutely can not stand driving a big heavy car everyday and the more I drove the latest generation m3, the more I realized how much of a pig it's turned into since the e36 days. Don't get me wrong, I still love my fat m3 but I missed having a light sporty car like my old e36. There's just Something about my 997 that sort of makes me feel like I'm driving my old beloved e36 and I don't get this feeling in the new 991. It's a terrific machine, sounds amazing and with pse sounds better than my e92 with m performance exhaust but I'm not willing to shell out close to 120k car I'm not absolutely in love with.

Ps. I hate the cheap material they use in the dash and doors of the 991. I would not be able to get the car without full leather, it just looks too cheap and would piss me the f*** off down the road.
