Porsche there is no substitute.
agreed. i never owned an m3 but drove an e46 version a number of times.
great engine. but engine was 20 times better than the gearbox.
gt3 has an even better engine, but imo, the gearbox is yet even better.
no comparison, and i will never use an m as gateway.
maybe cayman s as a streeter, but never a bmw.

Funny story... I had a 2010 M3 on order for euro delivery when I changed gears and cancelled the order for the 2010 GT3. After selling the GT3 18 months later, I actually did the exact same thing (deja vu all over again!)... 2013 M3 for euro delivery, only this time I got a 2011 GT3 RS instead.
u should order another m3. who knows, you might end up with RS4.0

I went E60 M5 to GT3. Love the GT3 on many levels but miss the M5's power and how FAST it was.
