Seems to me I'm not the only one second guessing more and more cars these days; ricers, infinities, genesis', the list goes on. When my 75k M, + mods, gets a beat down, man that sucks. What's next, 10k to sc? I'm at almost 90k... Whatever, get me a new car....

You are too worried about your image, dude.

You guys should have been on the forum back in 2007-08 (don't judge my current "join date" I am on my second life haha). People were talking trash ab the coming GT-R just another nissan Z car, not serious comparison to a BMW. Many ridiculed how such a heavy pig would handle in the twisties. Now, you get the likes of Longwong crying not to compare the 'Supercar' GT-R to a simple BMW. So conviniently hypocritical. Let's blow all myths in both directions :

- a GT-R is not significantly more expensive. I considered buying a 2010 GT-R last month for $71K but instead ordered one of the last ever produced E92 M3's.

- Driving an M3 is more fun than driving a GT-R in the long run (not just a one time testdrive). For equally performing cars a NA engine will always be more fun than a FI one. You can even take mismatched cars in performance and the NA aspirated one will be more fun.

-The M3 has class and is the better rounded overall car. GT-R interior looks like a 12 years old sega console. The next gen. GT-R will probably improve significantly on interior tough.

-If all you want is brute power and torque the GT-R delivers. Just don't expect the engine to sound better than an old dog on steroids. Much prefer the S65 NA sound (not as nice as a LFA sound but better).

-I personally do not like the GT-R front and I think it lacks class.

-No stickshift !

-Stop the BS about the GT-R not being in the same league as an M3. I could have got either one and chose the M3. And good luck with Nissan Service even GT-R certified...

I "race" gtr's at the track and that's where the playing field is leveled. I tend to be faster than most of them because when it becomes time to do more than just put the pedal to the floor, most GTR owners can't match the performance of their cars.

Getting "GTR'd" is part of the M3 ownership experience

And same with getting stuck behind a Prius on a mountain road

Skooterbah,

I don't think you realize what a lightly modded gt-r delivers (intake & exhaust)... its nearly on par with an ess vt-2 625 dct m3. I know as I've roll raced enough of them. An E85 tune alone on a gt-r places it in sc'd m3 land.

Lots of videos out there...the gt-r defies physics.

As for daily driver...things rattle, cabin noise, feels detached, etc. The m3 is a much more well rounded car.
