BMW E46 M3 CSL vs Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R

hi guys, I have found a 2004 E46 M3 CSL, driven just 6000 km and the owner has all the service records. However, for its price I could get a brand new grey good R35 GT-R. What do you guys think? (Currently driving Audi R8, A3 2.0T Quattro and Nissan Elgrand)

Agreed hands down.. Same here in Sin..

In any case, I would get the csl m3 hands at all cost.. Currently driving one for quite sometime now and loving every minute of it.. least to mention if its a CSL m3..

Gtr wise, drove my friend's and and had the blessing of gunning very hard.. Power and pick up speed wise, m3 just cannot compare at all.. Don't think the m can even follow when launch from standstill.. Seriously very fast and scary with the twin lungs at full boost at 1.0 bar.. the G force is unbelievable... BUt then again, Apples vs oranges..

But in a sane mind, gtr is still a jap car.. and in my opinion, its not worth the money at all.. Comfort, feel, rwd, sound of the high rev M engine, etc, etc.. How can one deny such goodies???

Its surely more fun to drive the m.. trust me.. Whether in hk or sin, you barely can stretch the limits on the m.. least to mention the gtr.. No point if you asked me..

"More power is seldom a bad thing, but it's much more satisfying to stretch an engine than constrain it"

If you happen to be in sin, drop me a note. I will be most glad to let you try mine.. 380bhp, 400nm.. enough said..

Cheers dude!

My heart tells me to go for the CSL all the time because its rare and hard to find a 2004 car but just driven 6000km. On the other hand, the GT-R is fast with superb handling.... but dam ugly. At the end, I will not be the one who can drive out GT-R's performance anyway so I think I will go for the CSL.

I totally agree. M is M. To me GT-R is more like a transformer lol! Its just always the price of it annoys me. I will stop by Singapore in April but just for 12 hours. We can meet for dinner I guess?

Yep you are right. However, M3 is my dream car when I was studying high school!

CSL, no doubt, those are so hard to come by, and especially to find one with so few miles is a miracle, that car is always hailed as one of the, if not the best M car ever.
and how could you live without this induction noise??? a gtr sounds like crap compared to it:

Actually I only come across to the GT-R just because its price overlaps the CSL's price.
