Need input Supercharged M3 (01-2006) or 08 sti with gt30r turbo

I just wanted some input from you guys. In terms of overall performance, daily livability, comfort, engine smoothness (turbo vs na) and overall feeling, which would you forum members prefer to have? Since the M3 will be used + supercharger, the cost of both the cars are around the same so costs can be factored out in this decision.

Thanks in advance for your inputs

The two cars are:
A supercharged BMW e46 m3 by ESS' supercharger producing around 380rwhp and a
GR series 08+ STI with a gt30r turbo kit which produces around 350 whp.

Need input Supercharged M3 (01-2006) or 08 sti with gt30r turbo

I love the e46 design the most of any ///M3 produced (including the e92) so my vote goes for the ///M3. The extra power would make the e46 alot of fun to drive as well.
