I am also wondering about how the DCT will be programmed. Like EDC, Drivelogic seems entirely unnecessary in this car.
Yes, but the cost of these Motorsport parts will be out of this world.

Genuine BMW Motorsport parts cost an arm and a leg. Going back to the E36 M3 Lightweight days, the prices were always 2-3 times what people would expect to pay for a performance part.

I'm sure there will be a 'grey market' for these individual pieces for the U.S. based members (like the E46 M3 CSL parts), but you better start saving your pennies now. These parts won't be easily accessed, and the vendors who are able to acquire them will charge you top dollar. Bet on it.
The best is yet to come...
