GT3 RS= ring 7:37 m3 gts 7:40. ..... Shit gt3 has wider tires.... that could make that difference alone. There's more to a car than 300lbs. Everyone knows the gt3 is sick... we won't know for sure about this one for a bit.

Someone needs to figure out how to make this available.

Quote:
Specific tuning of the stability control function DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), including ABS and the M Dynamic Mode (MDM), make allowances for the increased dynamic potential of the BMW M3 GTS. Optimum transfer not only of acceleration torque but also of the brake torque is also guaranteed by mixed tyres on matt black, 19-inch M light alloy wheels featuring a Y-spoke design.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

Does the GTS sit lower than the ZCP?

Yes. The GTS is height adjustable up to 25mm, and its lowest setting is almost assuredly lower than the ZCP M3.

This is a stupid thread now.....
There isn't a manufacturer out there, that either scrutinizes over the quality of their materials, or production and design process, as BMW does. Which is why they are a leading innovator. Japanese brands cant compete, because, honestly as good of a product as they can make, they still get it by reverse engineering another companies idea. (for the most part) Its about compromise. Stop comparing this GTS to the GT3. They are different cars, almost entirely. Its pointless. The BMW is far more "DIGITAL" and computer controlled than the GT3, which is an analog grab the bull by the horns kind of sports car! WHO FREAKIN CARES!!! It doesn't make the GTS any less of a sports car, even if the GTS is a faster car! At least we can say... those panels that form the GTS body came from a BMW factory, cause Porsche couldn't do it themselves (ouch, did I just say that, lol)! The E92 M3 only share 2 identical parts with a normal 3 series. Its a different car! You can't put bolt ons on a 3 and make an M. You cant put "bolt ons" on an M3 and Make a GTS. These cars where engineered from the ground up. This isn't AMG, and some "tuned Merc's". This is BMW Motorsports GmBH. Where they built FORMULA 1 CARS!! WTF!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS! DID PORSCHE RACE IN F1? NO!! Who's race car EMBARRASSED EVERYONE on the track in the early 2000's, INCLUDING PORSCHE! E46 M3 GT bring back any memories! Hmmmm! Just because BMW isn't doing this now, doesn't mean they cant. Times are different, and their focus is different. Porsche and BMW are two totally different companies with two totally different philosophies on building cars. Apples and oranges. A faster car doesn't, make a better car, a more eye pleasing car, doesn't make a better car. These cars have more to them than any of you could possibly imagine. People are going to buy what they like regardless of the facts. If there is anything I have learned in this business, its that You don't have to have brains to own a BMW, just a fat wallet. This thread is Done... Next time an Audi, Porsche, or Merc come into my shop, I am first going to laugh at their craftsmanship, and finish by taking a dump on its hood! Just for you negative guys!

I would take the Dinan S3-R Package over this. Although I do not know, but I think Dinan maybe less money.

The Challenge aero piece would closest resemble the GTS front lip:

It's an additional 40-ish horsepower.

The Challenge lip uses the factory bolts to secure into place, I'll follow up via PM so the thread isn't hijacked.
