I recently picked up an F82 (BMWM4) and love it! I have, however, always have been in love with the GTR since the R32. I wanted to join this forum and read up a bit to learn as much as possible before I eventually [inevitably] decide to get my dream car, an R35. Since I have barely owned my F82 for a month, I dont want to be hasty and jump into a GTR.

Im hoping within a year (or two max) I could DD the M4 and joy ride the GTR, if all goes well.

Just wanted to introduce myself and share my love for one of the greatest performance cars IMO.

My previous car was an M4. I almost got an F80 6MT after, but went back to a GTR - I had a GTR back in 2013.

The one thing you'll notice off the bat with the GTR is the clunkyness as opposed to the M. The M DCT is so crisp and nice vs the GTR. Of course the luxury and technology is way above the GTR as well.

Performance and penis attention can't be compared though.

Trade the F82 , my fiancé and I own a f80 and its a nice car (she even worked for BMW, I work for Nissan) Car for car we both agree the Gtr is better in most every areas except for a few. The BMW seats are nicer than the premiums seats, the transmission shifts smoother IMO,it's 7 speed vs 6 speed(currently). It's got a carbon fiber roof vs aluminum. She's however can attest these small advantages mean little when I pull away from her

Haha right.

Do not ever own a GTR!

They break and are slow. I mean, I want to always own one, they're so fast!

Hmm.

Is that a statement or a directive?

It doesn't matter, your intent became clear quickly, so welcome and keep reading and get some ideas about what options you have.

Post some pictures when you have time.

Man... I have a friend that works for BMW and his employee lease on his F82 is ridiculously cheap. So jelly.

Well I'm confused. For your M4 I'm sure you paid at least 70k+? Well you could have purchased a 2014,2015 used Nissan GT-R. Why didn't you just go get a GT-R?

M4 was a better DD (for me personally) since i was already spoiled somehwat with my F30 (335Xi). The GTR is geared more towards performance and many actually conider it entry level exotic. I know it can obviously be daily driven, but its more like wine, an acquired taste, but not for everyone. I love these cars to death but I would use the GTR primarily for track and for more thrill than my M4.

As far as trading in the M4, I also love the car to death and it is an awesome all around car for every day use for me. I also would have a heart attack losing all that money due to depreciation in 1 month.

Sorry everyone for being misleading. I guess I didnt realize it until some of you mentioned it. I should have added the word "yet" to the end.

Thank you all for being understanding though and not being critical, compared to "other" forums lol.

I had an E90 M3 which I thought I loved until I hit my GTR. Like others have said, can't really compare the two. The new M4's are awesome though.... Got to love bmw free maintenance too but I don't see it getting much better than a GTR.... Welcome....

I've also come from a E92 M3 DCT. I looked and drove the M4's before I got the GTR. The M is more luxurious but the GTR is in a completely different class when it comes to performance. There's so many M's on the road compared to the GTR. The GTR also has much more command presence than a M4.
