E92 M3 To Gtr

Sold my E92 M3 about a month ago and purchased a GTR.

GTR advantages over the E92 M3

1. More Power and Torque

2. Better Handling

3. For me IMO it looks better and more aggressvie than the M3

4. Better Fuel Economy I was able to get close to 19MPG city driving.

5. Power gains - With just a Midpipe, Catback and 1000cc Injectors and a Cobb Pro Tune will yield 570whp and 580wtq on 91 Pump Gas.

6. The Thrill of launching the car when it hits 60mph in 2.7 seconds, it's like having the Aerosmith Ride at Disney World Florida.

Nice ride! I hear service on the GT-R is quite pricey.

Congrats on the new ride, from a sheer numbers standpoint there are few better cars at any price point.

Congrats! I'll probably be in one next. It DOES look better and more aggressive than the M3. My GF STILL has trouble spotting an M3 from a regular 3-series and she knows a lot about cars (for a girl).
