    Picked up a new car this past week!

    Been loving my ESS/AR 700 E92 M3 this past year, but I decided to step it up a notch. I still have my M3 (for now lol) but landed a great deal on a gently used 2012 Pearl white GTR premium. I must say.... these cars are VERY impressive bone stock, and once you start getting some bolts on + tune, they are insane!


    Pic of her the day I purchased, last week!

    Day before I took delivery of the car, I already ordered the SBD 700+ (E85) package, swift springs, Cobb V3 w/ TCM.

    First thing I did was remove the damn wing and wrap the trunk in carbon and matched the roof as well.

    Pic of exhaust and the mid pipe, down pipes and injectors. Still waiting on the 2 HKS/Denso fuel pumps, intakes, upper Ic piping w/ dual Tial Q's and swift springs. Installed the AAM Race mid pipe and the SBD 90mm street exhaust w/ custom pump gas tune (17psi) this week. Manged to pick up 20hp and 40tq over the Cobb S2 flash that came with. Car feels like a monster now on 17psi vs the stock 11psi. The FIC 1000cc injectors, denso/hks pumps, intakes, down pipes, upper ic piping w/ tial q's will all be installed as soon as everything arrives, then tuning on 20psi on E85!

    Mounted the new wheels on her today w/ a square setup running 285 Michelin Pilot Super Sports on all 4 corners. Can't wait to get this thing to High Plains Raceway!

    LMAO sticky! I still have love for the M3 bro! Hell I still have mine for the time being. I love M3's, and adore mine, but the GTR is just in a completely different category performance wise. Hell, the interior in my 2012 is even better then my M3... =( Power wise, it's a VERY different delivery and feel. The '12 GTR felt faster when it was bone stock on 11psi then my M3 did on 9psi through the V3. Now on 17psi w/ a custom tune, I would bet it pulls away pretty hard. Only one way to find out though =D I may have my buddy drive my M3 out, and do some 20, 40, 60 pulls to see how much of a difference there is between the 2 before I go E85/FBO/20psi on the GTR.

    I think you should definitely compare the two. Do it well and I'll front page it.

    For sure man. I'll do a write up and comparison like I did with the blower differences. What all specifically would you want compared in the article? I'm thinking Engine & it's characteristics, M3 dct vs GTR DCT, suspension, brakes, comfort, daily drivability, handling, amenities etc. Obv would include some video of the 2 cars going head to head.

    Duh. The M doesn't stand zero chance though it needs to be prepped for the strip.

    So on a prepped track you think it would have better than a zero chance?

    Zero chance is impossible period as there is always a chance.

    Regardless, obviously a rear wheel drive car needs to be prepped properly for launches from a stop whereas there is far more leeway with an all wheel drive car.

    Congrats on the new beast! Can't wait to see a vid of the races and a comparison of the two.

    mind if I ask how much you got the 2012 for?
