I am going to get on my fanboy soapbox....
I hope all these very similar reviews have managed to turn some of the skeptics. It looks like 2001/1994 all over again with the M3 reigning supreme.
Those of you who want to bring up the GTR or 911 just take a look back in history. The R34 was king like the R35 is now (we just didnt get one in the states). And, your kidding me if the think the E36 M3 ever beat a 993/996 911.
Nope, the balance is maintained and the M3 is still on top!
