The parts sharing is why BMW got back involved. All ancillaries are basically the same on all the cars. All the cars are designed for hybrid drive as well and it will be added in the future. 2013 (or 2014 depending on contract signing dates) will see DTM stateside.

I will see if I can find my stuff on the changes....
