Agree. The GTS was lighter because they gutted an M3 and made it into a track car. This LTW E90 is supposed to focus on functional equivalance to the current M3 sedan, but built from lighter weight material.

2. This car ist totally different from what the GTS stands for ... GTS is 100% Trackcar - WeightReduction only/mostly by strip out trackuseless parts ... the LWC is quoted to be an combination between Daily Driver and Trackcar - WeightReduction by making parts lighter instead of removing them and removing only parts that are not really necessary for daily driving.
