jeez, i find it hard to believe that a grown man with that much money to burn, 3 kids in college, getting new house, and has $200k budget for a car, CANT MAKE THEIR OWN MIND UP. Your post gets the with pics or not.

Garage List
2011 M3  [3.37]
If someone has a garage like the OP claims AND tracks their cars, they do not come here for advice or you have thought through what you want and are coming here to discuss.

Secondly, if you are old enough to have three kids in university and make as much money as you expect the OP to make to fund his cars, you do NOT ever use the term "sick" UNLESS you are in fact not feeling well. Nor do you use the terms "r u"

Therefore, I call BS on all of this. The OP is a troll... having said that, post pictures of your garage and I will humbly apologize. Otherwise, I say you are 14 and have aspirations of a garage like you describe and are only here because you are bored during summer vacation.

sounds like one of my neighbors... stopped me as i was backing into my garage a couple of weeks ago and asked me how i liked the car, just after i bought it. he knew i had a mustang before and he had also just bought a new car. i told him it was great, and then he busts out with 'yeah, i almost bought one of those, but decided not to...'

he apparently thought a new kia optima was a better choice...

OP..... 1st: Graduate high school before daydreaming about performance cars.
2nd: "What car to get" is a statement, not a question and definitely a biproduct of text-talk, thus stronly suggesting you dont have 3 kids in college. But have a nice day though ok?

Let me guess, your name is Vincent Chase and you are an actor currently looking for your next gig, your bother's name is Drama and your buddy "E" is your manager...not to mention Turtle who hangs out at your house.

So you can buy a $180k Porsche Turbo but need to save up for a $150k GT3?

+1000...hilarious comment!

Furthermore, you don't drive cars like the GT3, Lambo, etc, and get "paid on a bi-weekly basis." You are typically a business owner that pays others, so I cry double BS on this boring thread.

I think you should do something a little different and buy a civic with VVVVVVVVVVVTEC.
With that much dough you should be bored.

Yep. You'll have to wait for the 991s.
My dealer just got a 2011 GT3RS in on trade for a GT3RS 4.0. It has 3000 miles on it, if the OP is interested(or not full of sh**).

I too would be interested in the opinions of others on here. I am the ruler of a magical kingdom and we primarily get around on some of the finest Arabian horses. Lately I've been thinking about having some of our serfs build a racing track for cars. I think a M3 GTS would be great. Please advise. I've got seven Audi R8s but they have never been driven. I just like Audi and the number seven.

Fail. You should have 7 Audi A7s.

OP-If you want a track car either get the Mazda Miata or a Lotus Elise. They are both cheaper options. Taking a $200k car to the track may seem like a charm but just take a lot at the track days and you will see very few of them. More likely to see Miatas, ///Ms and Porsches...

Awww... you guys scared him off I was really hoping I could see how he was going to make it out of that huge mound of bs he was in.

What's the point of threads like this anyways??? Why ask other people what car you should get? If you want to hear pro/cons and comparisons from others so you can see if you missed anything, that's fine, but are you really going to buy a Lamborghini Aventador because random people you don't know on a forum told you too???

Maybe you should sit down and re-think this. Placing your own children's futures in our hands might not be the wisest decision.

You can afford a 911 Turbo and R8 and you're cross shopping it with an M3? I think somethings wrong here.

He wants a track car. Even though you can pretty much get a S2000 and prep it for the track and it'll spank many of the higher end luxury cars, the M3 is a pig. Not a car I would want for the track. Great balance, great steering, just a bit heavy.
