I can comfortably afford an M3, C63 or a GT-R but would have to sell my house or eat baked beans to purchase a Turbo. I am not going to sell my house or eat baked beans (apart from the odd breakfast) so it is just natural for me to compare these sub $200k cars.

From purely a performance perspective you are spot on though, there is no comparison.

Am I making any sense?
YES you are correct about this when your looking at it from cost perspective but im looking at it from a performance perpective. We can safely say then for 150k the GTR leaves the rest of the automakers in the dust.
