Can't decide C7 vs C7 Zo6 vs M4

I have enjoyed my 335i for 6-7 years and think its time to move on. I would really like to get a C7 vette, price is ok and is available now but but the Zo6 is gonna have a wider stance and better motor etc. I do like the new m4 but it is some what pricey compared to a C7 non zo6, but it does have 4 seats is more refined as a daily driver. I am looking for a daily driver and to keep the car for a while. Chevy has a 100000 mile warranty on the motor so I won't have to pay extra for an extended warranty like I will on the M4. Corvettes also tend to hold there value a little better as far as I know. Now which one to buy?

How about you wait until all of them are available to drive, drive them all, and pick the one you like the best instead of asking (or caring) what others think?

I challenge you to listen to the M4 exhaust note from the BMW launch video, and still keep the M4 on your list.

This. Every single time I hear it in a spy video or something, I think a lawnmower is somewhere nearby.

It's like a sexy woman who is physically attractive in every aspect of her body, then when she opens her mouth, her voice is a bad imitation of minnie-mouse. Some guys can get over it, but some of us can't.

Yikes!

That does not sound tasteful. I wonder how it would sound with an aftermarket exhaust though. It might actually sound really good once opened up...

I admit, it might sound better with an after market solution, and under load at WOT.

But... I doubt it. I hope some after market company proves me wrong.

Nothing sounded as disgusting as a stock E46 M3.

I'd go with the base Corvette and the Z51 package to be honest. The Z06 is just too much for me in terms of performance and style while the base car is plenty fast and much better looking. I'd love to have an M4 but can't choose it over the new Vette, its just too good for the money...

The new stingray is pure sex on wheels. I absolutely would get one but I need rear seats.

Get the C7 Z06 or the regular C7 if you can't wait.

I have owned vets in the past, and test drove a stock C7. I would never buy another vette. The M4 will be the better car, Period. The vette may be faster but if speed is all you're worried about, than get it. But the M4 like the M3 will drive better, it's built a lot better and doesn't feel cheap. The vette feels cheap because it's built that way. Plus the rear end of the new vette is pretty bad IMHO.

Speaking of "cheap" build, my M3 has the rubber coating on the steering wheel totally peeling off, the coating on the door handles beginning to peel off, the powersteering reservoir oozes fluid at the track because of the crappy oil cooler not up to the task, and those fabulous monopiston sliding calipers that fade after a couple of laps on the track.

And speaking of better drives, definitely nothing better than persistent understeer like my M3 does at the track.

Yea, you're right. Corvettes are so "cheap" and "inferior" to the M3 indeed

Honestly the first time I've heard an opinion like this about the C7. I've seen nothing but praise about it.
