Condor Man* You are a lucky guy. Love your garage, and agree at a 100% with your comment.

I´ve owned a BMW M3 e92, and i liked it.... but it´s soul less... It doesn't have the passion and the feel of the porsche, and neither the sound and the madness of the Merc.

The engine on that merc is one of the all time greatest!

Considering that I own a GT3 RS.2 and a C63 I can honestly say that I would prefer both cars over the M3 based on the simple fact that they both have a soul!!

The BMW M3 GTS is a good car , but sorry you can\'t kill the GT3 RS....

Audi and Mercedes-Benz , you both don\'t have any chance against the M3 GTS.M3 is still the benchmark so keep dreaming that your RS5 or C63 AMG beats it.....hahahaaa...Long live M3
