Did you get the GTR? Any feedback?

That doesn't mean one car is better than the other. It is all depend on what you are looking for. some want comfort, some want absolute performance.
best answer IMHO. you will simply get tired and anything different will make you happy temporarily.

Just a bit of an update, i had forgotten i asked this question. Well, im enjoying the M3 DCT immensely now, and, after getting over the downgrading of straightline speed of the GT-R, im enjoying the car, the more i drive it. The car feels alive down the back lanes, and very agile because of its relative, to the GT-R, size. Its gearbox/change, is mesmorisingly smooth and quick, and suits the nature of this car, it feels very race car like when the mood takes you. I owned a 2010 Edition model, a couple of years ago, and this new car, with the Comp pack, feels more planted, and eager to turn in, than that of the older car from memory. Maybe the Michelin Sports have something to do with it ?, the last car had Contis fitted. All things considered, performance, quality, character, useability of two rear seats, and price, the M3 is very tough to beat, regards, SIMON.

I did, and now that I just installed a VF620 kit ..I can honestly say the M3 is now a better car all around. I do hear that awesome downshift sound with an xpipe and the M3 now hauls ass just like the GTR but with more fun of a RWD
The M3 stock was a lot left to be desired power and fun wise, but the M3 will always look sexier in my eyes.
If I had to compete in a million dollar track event then I'll choose to pilot the GTR, I can understand why a lot of people are leaving a stock M3 to C63 and GTR because I almost did too ... Until the catless xpipe and supercharger went in! Wow what a difference

Did you make the move to GTR? If so, how do you like it compared to the M3?

Must be nice to be the son...assuming he hasn't totalled it!
