Would you mind writing a little about your experience of owning a 996TT please? I know the M3 and 911 Turbos are completely different monsters, but I was cross shopping them. Went with the M3 because I'm more familiar with BMW's, can get parts for cheaper (retail price) and couldn't get away from the V8 sound the S65 makes.

Having said that, I'm 95% sure the next car to be added to the garage will be a Speed Yellow 997.1 Turbo, 6MT of course. Just waiting for 991 Turbo to come out and drop the prices
