Thinking about coming back to an M3

Its been awhile since ive been back in a car that I truly love. Im having bmw M withdrawals. I want to see what the new M3 will look like but im not looking forward to a 6 cylinder. Then again i still havent test drove a GTR. i feel that car is definitely a bang for the buck car. but i dont see where i can go that fast with that amount of power lol. the E92 M3 has always had a special place in my heart. When will the new M3 be coming out? If i do go back ill be looking for a 6mt since i hear the manual on the e92 was perfection and fun.

Do it! I went from a E92 M3 to a GTR and now back to a M3 again.... I realized very quickly that the m3 (for me) is the perfectly balanced car in all aspects - power, refinement, feel and connection.. The GTR is a beast but wasn't making me a better driver at the track..

I'd rather have an M3 anyday, anytime. I thought about different cars, but the love for BMW couldn't persuade me.

Go with the coupe, definitely. The vert puts a whole lot of extra weight in the worst possible place. It's also heavier overall, slower and not quite as pretty.

Drive a GT-R and a ZO6 first, at least. If I could do it again, I'd be in one of those two instead.
