I have a hard time agreeing with you on this point... Real world driving is not from a dig. Do you use your launch control often at stop lights? I don't. I personally think mid-range power is where the enjoyment comes from and "means the most". Only Americans care about 1/4 and 0-60 times. Everyone wants different things but I just don't care that much about how quick my car is from a dig; I'm much more concerned about mid-range and track performance. GTR will of course still beat the M3 in those measures but the M3's practicality and fun-factor is hard to beat. Don't get me wrong I would have a GTR right now if the price were equal to the M3. However I'm not convinced that I wouldn't find myself missing the M3.
