He was also wrong about the M3 GTS' displacement, it's a 4.4l, not 4l like a normal M3. I would choose either the C63 or M3 GTS (probably M3 due to lighter weight). The look as well as the image of the GT3 just don't feel right to me. I also like well balanced cars (without an engine hanging over the rear axel).
