About damn time. I would of never opened a thread for a decision like this. 2013 GTR is a beast, where a M3 is not. 2 different vehicles IMO. Enjoy it. I would never ever ever ask a forum to make your decision. That is my opinion.

Nice. Based on your initial post I thought you would be a new owner soon. Did you get it from Jason at Boulder? I heard he already sold all 6 allocations he had in place. I think pricing will be released fairly soon.

The 7:18 lap time for the GT2 RS is on Sport Cup tires which are race tires. GT-R runs on street tires.

1:17.8 - Nissan GT-R (2012)
1:19.5 - Porsche 997 GT2

CUPs are street tires, as are Corsas, which also come standard on GT3s/RSs, too include the RS2. It's not like the GT-R comes with regular street tires either. There isn't much difference between what comes OEM on the RS or which comes OEM on a GT-R when it comes to grip.

Vivek, I just found this thread. I am saddened to see you depart the M3 family so quickly. Darn, you've done so much to the car in so little time and won't really have the time to enjoy and appreciate all the great (and $$$) mods you've put on.

The M3 is a great car to start with. With the mods you have, it's an incredible and amazingly capable car. I have not driven the GTR and I am sure it's a great car. From what I understand, although it will be very fast at the track, I am not sure you'll get the same driver involvement you get in the M3.

I've had my car for 3 years now and I can't even think about getting rid of it. Every single day, I sit behind the wheel, start it up, hear the exhaust rumble and cannot stop feeling fortunate to drive such an amazing machine.

Hope you enjoy the GTR. You may want to wait a few months before you dump a bunch of money into it and make sure you want to stick with it. Regardless, I look forward to seeing you at the track next year. M3 or not!

You have no clue then what a CUP tire is... They are nothing like the GTR or other 'Normal' high performance street tire, offered on BMW's and other performance machines.

A CUP tire is a 6/32nd, 80 Treadware DOT legal race tire.

The GTR, and other standard performance street tires on these other cars are 10/32 200 Treadwear rated tires... and in the GTR's case... even a Runflat!
