You said everything I was going to say. With the high price tag, the gt3 rs 3.8 doesn't look like a bad bargain in terms of what you get when compared to the m3 gts. lol. And according to 'ring times, the m3 gts gets similar times as a 997 carrera 2s. So, even a base gt3 was just overkill. ouch

Still interesting though and a great video.
