The GT3 sounds so good! That blue looks really nice on the GT3. Man I love that car!

I believe the clip is to just show what advancments BMW has made in comparison with the "benchmark".
The GTS is surely a wonderful car to track around with if you want to stay with M3s but honestly comparing & with all the test driving Ive done between the two companies, BMW & Porsche are still 2 completely diffent philosophies.
One should try and remember this fact when comparing.

BTW for the price of the GTS (which I still find absurd) I would go for the GT3 or even GT3RS any day.

+4 Sorry BMW, try again. As much as I'd love to just give the fanboy nod to BMW here, it isn't warranted.

I've driven on that circuit in my old EVO 9, it's a proving ground, the corners come that quick you don't get time to think.

The thing is the M3 GTS should have been priced just a little bit above the reg. M3, just.
Then it would be a good value. Still must be a fun car.

totally agree. it should certainly be priced south of the GT3. if they offered it in the U.S. for under $100k, in colors other than orange, and with an optional spoiler delete, I would have probably bought one.

Glad they did not run long straights. I think the HP of the M3 GTS with the increased weight won't keep up with GT3
