Well if you have decided on a manual, you could look at the gt3, its rated as the best porsche on an overall basis, even though it cant beat a turbo in a straight line but on track i will prove its worth..jus like what an m3 does to a c 63 amg

Guys,just saw this thread.Nice thread.
I dont have a good garage in comparison to you.
Eck can you highlight on a silly everyday problem of me?
What should I do to get the wash water salt and iron free?It leaves some leash of stain over my M3 glasses.

Hey Ecks, AFAIR you were talking about getting a Chevy Camaro at some point before your M3. Did you drop the idea or you didn't like it at all???

oh BTW, its my 1st quote on TBHP and I must say I am in love with Ecks garage. You have got a taste bro.

Thanks man, and yes I did like the Camaro but sadly it is available in LDH only so far.

And this is for everyone here - The Porsche is about to be sold soon. So the next addition to my garage will be the legendary Godzilla. Yes, the new Nissan GTR. I have thought about this and I know that I have always been anti - those cars that are not officially supported. But I know a few people in Delhi and Bombay who would go out of their way to help me maintain the GTR. So yes, expect to see a GTR in pearl white before this year ends.

Awesome,KDS. ANother fantastic addition to you already splendid garage.
Just curious: you already have the M3 as your daily drive. So why another everyday use supercar? Why not another glamourous occasional use supercar? An Aston maybe?? :P

And when are you gonna put up the videos of the M3 at the airport?? We're dying to hear the beast.

I don't know man. I guess Nissan does offer proper service for the GTR as per Cyrus here , so it makes sense to get that. And as such I am not sure of the airport run. I'll keep you guys posted on that.

A little change of plan. Apparently I am not allowed that budget this soon (The M3 and Audi R8 came within 4 months of each other). The GTR made sense.

It always makes me wonder since I am into your thread, you always talk about getting a daily driver and name a neck breaking monster (your M3 with performance mods; well, even without mods too , Porsche 911 Turbo and now, the Nissan GTR)

I understand that you are in love with your M3 as daily driver but don't you think you should grace your garage with a elegant SUV which actually fulfills your daily driver needs. Just an opinion!!!
