Agreed. I am very happy with what I have and looking forward to modding it soon.

Not to mention that its usually a good bet to go with the car that every other car in that segment is trying to knock off the hill to capture the flag. Found myself at a BMW dealer test driving the M4 with Competition Package. Yep, the dual clutch tranny shifted fast. Yep, solid acceleration with torque coming in early from the turbos. Yep, car felt light and responsive. But something intangible was missing. Was it the background bass note of a V8 I'd become so accustomed to? (Coming out of a 600+ hp NA, highly modified 2013 C6 Grand Sport). We did two high speed runs then pulled over to listen to revs from the outside to check out the exhaust note. Underwhelmed. The old M3 naturally-aspirated V8 coupe it replaced sounded far better. Sales guy was stunned when I handed the key back and said "no thanks." The AMG C63 S was next. German muscle car! Loved it, but was a bit concerned with reliability issues (Consumer Reports) as well as pushing up against $95K optioned the way we wanted. Loved the RC F from the second those deeply bolstered seats wrapped around me. Driver-centric cockpit. Familiar V8 rumble, carbon package with TVD and every other option available. Still came in at only $81K, leaving extra $ to burn on exhaust, CF diffuser, wheels, intake, black chrome trim (OEM for JDM only), Xpel wrap, etc etc. Good car, good performance. At this point I don't really care what it gets compared to or how it compared to it around a track. If that was the end all, be all I would've kept the vette.
