Another Porsche vs. BMW thread with a twist.

Something dawned on me today while driving my M3 on a rare day off. While stretching the legs on the wonderful S65 engine today I wondered, hmmmm. I know the Porsche 911 is a better and faster car if driven well. More rewarding to the driver as well, but which engine would you rather have? Based strictly (997)911 Carrera or Carrera S vs M3 S65, which engines are better and why? No (991) 3.8 liter discussion as that engine is ridiculous. I will entertain the 3.4 liter argument. I definitely wanna hear the 2009 911 DI engines compared. I want to keep this as much an apples to apples comparison as possible. I'd like to hear fuel economy, reliability etc. Everything under the sun engine related.
I still lust for a 911 but I KNOW I would miss this engine in our M3's. 911 is the better car, probably. Daily Driver, probably not but I don't want to re-hash those arguments. Instead keep this strictly internal combustion engine related. I'm thinking advantage M3 here but I'd like to hear everybody else's thoughts.
