    2 awesome cars that go about it in different manners. But they were driving more for fun and entertainment rather than for quickest lap times due to the drifts

    5th gear: M3 GTS vs 911 GT3 RS

    there is one problem with this video and that's having 2 different drivers behind the wheel of 2 different cars. Vicky is a great driver, but Tiff is a very great driver so we can't say a 911 GT3 RS is 1 faster than GTS around that track, but no doubt it's faster.

    5th Gear compares the BMW E92 M3 GTS to the Porsche 997.2 GT3 RS

    We really like 5th Gear and prefer how it is more substance than fluff. This wasn't up to their usual standards though. We love Vicki but having her in one car (the M3) and Tiff Needell in the other does not make for an accurate comparison. Also, the drifting scoring seems haphazardly done with them just pulling out numbers. The laptime comparison being done using an Iphone to time from inside the car isn't exactly the professional timing we would expect. If we were to apply their own scoring system, we give the comparison a 6/10.

    Wow, what was bmw thinking? I want to see a comparison between the GTS and the Regular M3. It can't be THAT much of a difference at least not like 60K worth. I can hook it up much nicer with the 60k extra...

    To me, there's no point comparing the GTS to a GT3 (for buyers, I mean; obviously I get that it makes for great TV and I loved watching the clip) but the only person who would buy the M3 GTS is someone who is a certified Bimmer nut or someone who is truly in love with the E92.

    I've driven my share of E9x M3s and frankly I can't even imagine a GTS being good enough for me to take it over a regular 911, forget about the GT3 RS.

    Not the casual reader's. It is just more professional to refrain from using the first person especially when discussing the blog as a whole.

    Ultimately, you make the association. When I use we, I am referring to BimmerBoost. If you want to just break that down to "I" no problem.
