This. I was very disappointing in the no DCT option. BRB Chevy making a 80-100k sports car and only offering a slushbox auto.
Makes me kinda want to keep my M3 now lol. But I can't (won't more so) have 2 toys. As far as pricing, I will say this..... the M3 tax is alot worse then the GTR tax.. I was pleasantly surprised haha.

The whole tune/software thing is bogus from ESS. Roman refused to assist myself and AR design when we originally decided to go with the 650 kit. We managed a pathetic 520hp and 6psi (due to 6000ft)...

For Sale: 613hp M3 Partout!
Car has not sold in the past 2 months, and will be going to AR Design to begin the process of tearing her down to stock. I am listing the parts that we will be selling here shortly. I will update...

Once car gets goes to AR Design to get returned to stock, I will list everything.

Car goes to AR Design to get returned to stock Tuesday the 7th when the Ebay add ends. Willing to do partial part out sales (IE sell car with only blower, no wheels/suspension) Let me know.

Very true. IN the end, they are just 2 completely designed machines. M3 is a well rounded high revving, low tq RWD platform, while the GTR is a purpose built track monster with a $#@! ton of low-mid...

Understandable. Just drive one if ya can ;) If you are ever in Colorado, hit me up, and I'll let ya take her out.

I think, personally for me, it's the abundance of torque that really differentiates the "feel" of the FBO/E85 GTR vs the ESS/AR 700 M3. You don't have to be winding the engine out to redline to enjoy...

As far as the fun factor.... When the GTR was stock, it was still loads of fun with 385hp/395tq (stock dyno) But the M3 was still a little more enjoying to drive. I will say, now with the GTR over...

Oh I plan on it. Im tearing the M3 down to stock next week, but im going to fill the tank with 105 and get some more runs on film. a 20, 40, 50 roll and a dig.

Well, trap speed is a great indicator of a cars power, but ET shows how well the car can put it down. Having a ton of power is a great thing, and is fun as hell, but not being able to use it or put...

Honestly, at the end of the day, anything can be made fast, if the finances are available and you're willing to spend them. We have 7 sec hondas now days to show this. Both cars are great platforms,...

In terms of 1/4 performance, I believe it is. Stock turbo, tranny, block, drivetrain GTR's have ran into the mid-high 9's in the high 130's to low 140's with just bolt ons, E85 and an aggressive...

Been MIA for a while.
In alll honesty, with bias aside, for an M3 to beat a FBO/E85 GTR from a dig would require more hp/tq/tire/suspension then anyone has yet to throw down. There are quite a...

Finally got a chance to log a 60-130 with both vehicles.
At 6000k elevation.

I will touch base with that here shortly. Going to continue the write up, including suspension, brakes, interior/exterior, amenities, comfort and daily driving.

Thanks! Yea I was curious as well before i purchased my GTR. I wish the GTR's was as refined as the M3. Thats the only draw back going from the M to the GTR.
12-13-2013, 07:57 PM
Very true. Stock vs stock, performance wise, there really isn't a comparison. It is just a completely different breed of machine, but both are very enjoyable to own and drive! The one thing that I...

M3. The 314hp/230tq is bone stock (blue run)
Bone stock GTR run was the red delta. She laid down...

I wanted to take a few minutes are write up a small article on the whole M3 vs GTR debate, and my impressions of both of the cars, both stock vs highly modified. I feel now owning both, at the same...
