From the logical point of view -

its the stupidest thing I could do .. I just bought my M3 less than a year ago. I've put in a few mods into it already. Pure cash-wise, I can sell the M3 and get a GT-R.. but I would be taking a obvious hit... I also know the GTR is more expensive to maintain (but not much more... several maint. myth's are floating around the net).. and it would be more expensive to run on the track...

Emotionally -

I'm in love ... Every few days I get the GTR fever and then make plans to stop driving the M3 and then sell it ... then I start to reason logically and somehow get out of the emotional state.... the GTR is a beast... the acceleration .. BRUTAL! .. the looks .. AGGRESSIVE!... damn!! .. I keep thinking .. I can get one now.. its almost within reach...


also one word of advice - do not drive/or sit in a GTR! .. until you're ready to buy one..
I would get the GTR but wait another 1 1/2-2 years. You should get more use out of your M for now with the idea of getting into a GTR later. With that said you will see what might be up Nissan's sleeves for the next model as well.

You want the car and should treat yourself but do it within reason and with a good plan, Stop modding the M now in anticipation of getting a GTR later.

You'll be happier if you wait. You asked.
