To each their own.
Yeah…I beat Micheal Jordan and Kobe Bryant on NBA 2k . Now..will that happen in real life?
I don’t think so.
In addition…try the same on Gran Turismo. A MUCH more accurate simulation.

Lol. I could bring a 600hp Supra with stock internals and have it whoop our STOCK M3's... Would that make any sense to anyone? Not at all. A race should either be stock for stock or modded for modded. Pointless in sitting around here saying you whooped a 458 when you are at 700hp and that thing is stock. Also, it will still get more looks, more attention and more women that you don't know to jump into the passenger seat.
I agree. Stock for stock. When you get into the modified domain..its a pandoras box. Which can leave one embarrassed running home with a tail between their legs.

This will let you know EXACTLY and CLEARLY where you stand.
You might lose to GTRs A LOT more than you have ever imagined you could. Not just GTRs either…Lambos, Supras…leave your ego on these forums when you attend.
Butt-hurtess and depression mixed with ego deflation may ensue afterwards.

for the most part the UGR guys wont run from a dig. Ever. But i understand why. Broken gallardo trans = 40k.

Im registered for the tx2k roll event, will be running the tx2k drag event and registered for the texas invitational also. If any of the m3s in here think they are fast you are more than welcome to try it

40k?

I think I posted with you last year...but still on these forums...im hearing the same stuff about M3s and what they'll do to a GTR.

I honestly don't think that many of the posters here realize what beasts are out there let alone modified.

I understand being enthused. I get it. Totally, but lets not be delusional either. That's why I keep pushing 2k shamelessly

Honestly dude, I think they just don't know any better.

I just advise everyone on here to attend ONE 2k meet.
They just may come back a very changed (albeit humbled) person.

Serious question here for the GTR guys--particularly former (or maybe even still current) M3 owners, who can compare. I don't care about drag racing. I get it, the GTR is faster than thought itself. But can you guys lay down for me what the GTR feels like, in comparison? What about those twisty canyon roads? What about interior (and even exterior, as has already been discussed somewhat) aesthetics? What about driving feel? Can you help me understand these differences, and anything else that may be related? I'm very happy with my M3 at the moment, but I can't say that--if the opportunity presented itself--I wouldn't roll with Godzilla at some point. Thanks.

Im finishing up a huge write up comparing the 2. I linked the beginning part a few posts back comparing engine and tranny, both from stock to both at 700hp. (I currently own a ESS/AR 700 M3 and a SBD E700 GTR)

Its a bigger car, no doubt about it. Reminds me of my old 3000GT VR-4 size wise. You can feel its a heavier car going thru the turns, but that doesn't take away from the feel or grip. AWD has a totally different feeling than RWD thru the twistys, the weight shifts away from the direction your turning in a way that's a bit unnerving until you realize its not gonna break loose, ever. Its an excellent handling car as the magazine tests have proven. One negative is the paddles aren't attached to the steering wheel, so you gotta take a hand off the wheel to shift mid turn.

Most people believe the interior is understated, which I suppose it is. But compared to a Corvette or any other American car its far superior. The recarro seats are much better (at least compared to the leather seats in the M3) for spirited driving, though not as comfortable on long drives. The Bose system sounds good, but isn't up to par with the Logic 7 in the M3.

The exterior seems to be love or hate on this forum, though I haven't heard any negative comments at the gas station yet. The GT-R gets a lot more looks and questions than the M3 did, though its still a dick magnet.

The throttle response is not instant like the M3, but when it spools up there really is no comparison to the rush. Cant imagine what the SBD700 feels like

In short, there pretty much polar opposites. I wouldn't suggest driving one until your ready to buy, or at least thinking of it. I made the mistake (not really) of riding in one at the track one day, and couldn't stop thinking of it till I owned one!

Sold my M3 6 weeks ago. Only had the GT-R for a couple weeks, but drove it home from Virginia, so already put 3k miles on it. Stock except for HKS exhaust and midpipe.

Any of you guys DD your GT-R? I read that the new 2015 model may have a more comfortable ride. I really need the car for DD and not for the track. It would basically replace the M3. I was OK daily driving my GT3RS until the suspension and exhaust changes. So I can tolerate some but abuse, but not entirely masochistic either.
Thanks

The 2012s suspension is stiff, but still a better ride then my M3 w/ KW Variant 3's. A stock M3 will ride a little more comfortable, but it's honestly not that bad. If I didn't mind putting tons of miles on my GTR, I would daily the shit out of it.

Thanks,
So with the added refinement the 2015 should be OK as a DD!

I only read the first 3 pages but this thread reminds me a lot of the 335i vs m3 threads. Two different cars in two different classes designed for different purposes.
