If money was no object I would get both the m3 and the GTR and just drive the GTR on weekends and at the track!
It's too expensive and too fast to carry 'inadequacy stigma', even if it is 'not german'.
As far as the 'I'm driving a kids (sports/gt) car' stigma, I found that to be a personal problem.
I thought the 3 series would be more 'professional' than my evo... turns out no one could give a rats ass what I drive - so that thought went out the door. I went back to driving what I like driving (fun stuff).
