If you choose your car based on the "valet test", then there surely is better cars than both the Ghibli and M4. But why on earth would you buy a car like the M3/M4 based on such a stupid criteria

If you are in the market for a Bentley Continental GT, a Ferrari California etc, then yes, they are poser cars that scores high on the coveted "valet test" scale... A Ghibli is a heavy (over 1800kg) car that surely is more aimed at luxurious touring than a pure driving experience and tail out track and Nurburgring action!

I would instead ask myself, which car would pass the Nurburgring test?
It would be the M3/M4 every time
