My Ride: '03 M3 Cab SMG
Funny proposition, GT3 vs. M3. The M3 is $50k and GT3 is $99k.
Sports car: GT3, no question.
Family sport coupe: M3.
Convertible: only possible w/ M3.
Like all other chicken/egg questions, depends how much money you have and what you want....

You suck at life. You can almost buy two M3s for the cost of a GT3. That's not a fair comparison in my opinion. Not to mention, if you have to ask you probably can't drive for ****.

Just go buy a new Civic, it's probably better suited for you.

HOUSE IS NOT AN INVESTMENT does it give you money if you don't get up and go to work? no

Um yes. as long as it is properly maintained, a house will be a long term investment with siginificant ROI after interest and taxes Does it send you a check every week; no.
