Update added review:

I finally drove my M3 to work today after several weeks of the GTR. The M3 is fully stock except for test pipes and Evolve Stage II Tune. I really still love the M3. If money was not an option, I would keep the M3 as a DD. The drive to work today (45 miles) was really comfortable after driving the race car for the past few weeks. When I drive the M3, it feels like I am just cruising comfortably enjoying my music and a few little sporty moments of changing lanes. In the GTR, I always feel like im racing a crowd of people at the track. The sound system in the M3 is way better than the BOSE sound in the GTR. If money were not an option I would definitely keep both.

Sad, but just got rid of the M3 a few days ago. As far as the GTR,
I have done 2 mods so far:

Rear view camera + DVD bypass
White vinyl wrap

I plan on doing an engine/transmission/turbo build sometime next year. The goal is 1KAWHP

That thing is bad ass! that wrap looks prefect, cant believe they can do such a good job, IMO 700-800 hp would be plenty and more reliable?

At first I was thinking 800, but i think i would get used to it. A couple guys on nagtroc with 1kwhp says that they are satisfied at that level for daily driving and have said its been reliable.

Btw, i did the wrap myself the past week and a half. Its the first time i've ever wrapped a car. Its not as perfect as i'd like it to be and i still have a lot of vinyl left to redo some panels later on. I think i will wrap it again in a few years in another color if i still have the car.

2012 BMW M3  [0.00]
Just read this entire thread today, post for post. First off, thank you for sharing your input and follow-up's, great read and insight. Your car looks sick and I'm jelly of the power, and all the technological prowess your car provides, truly something our M's may never compete with. However, something tells me you may gravitate back by your subtle references, and I think you'll relate to my words. Myself, feeling empathetic to your quote "....Sad, but just got rid of the M3 a few days ago.", I seriously would have a very difficult time parting with my M forever. Take today for example; after watching the forecast the night before, I was amped up to uncover my beast, and cruise. And cruise I did! I had some work shit i had to take care of in the AM, but the rest of the day was just a fuel burner. Being tucked away for a couple of weeks due to the spotty weather we've had, I'm sure if she could talk she would say, "what the fuck are you waiting for Mr., please ram some cool, clean, New England winter air down my throat!"
A few months age I had the opportunity to buy a used suburban as a DD. Was that a blessing in disguise! Lumbering around in that tank for a few days kept me anxiously awaiting today's jaunt. And she didn't disappoint. She may not be the fastest, probably not even close, but it gave me just the right dose of medicine that could have kept me driving all day long. I think you get my point.
In closing, and not taking one single horsepower away from your beast, I somehow don't get the impression the mighty GT-R, and all her blood curdling roar, mind bending torque, and adhesive road hugging tires, still leaves you yearning for the one car you let some stranger drive out of your driveway, and out of your life.
The car that set the benchmark for all others;
M
