If there is a way to get it, and I will find out, I'll buy one.
Price doesn't matter, I think I want it.

And if not, what are the odds of being able to buy their roll bar and race splitters.
Everything else I feel my car has aftermarket, I wonder if BMW sat back and watched what all the tuners did and modeled the car after the best sought after aftermarket M3 parts

Everybody comparing EUR prices to USD prices is crazy.

The M3 GTS may be about $170,000 when you convert the price in Europe into dollars, but using this same conversion, a regular M3 is already $100,000+. It's almost twice as expensive as it is in the US. If the car came here, it would probably sticker for $89,000. That's cheaper than a GT3.

I agree...on the other hand, I'd take some of the parts: wheels, exhaust, brakes being three that would probably easily transfer to the "regular" M3.

Of course, time will tell if they'll a.) be available; b.) have a price point that makes any kind of sense compared to aftermarket.

The TI exhaust looks sweet!

They certainly didn't hesitate to put those god-awful blacked out grills and side markers on the car.

...but at least they didn't cater to the carbon-fiber-for-nothing-other-than-appearance freaks.

Thanks to Savage for starting the original thread about this car. Last time I checked it was over 28 pages.

I have watched the video about 804 times. This car is sweet! Two questions: Why didn't they put the performance wheel on this car and why DCT only?

ok three questions. Will it come to the States?

Whats the matter with the rear spioler? Doesn't the GT3 RS have a similar one?



Porsche fans are so scared when a new car comes up. I remember the discussions (war) GT-R vs. 911 Turbo, an now M3 GTS vs. 911 GT3/RS. Of course the 911 GT3/RS is great and the M3 GTS is not so good but costs the same (irony). But no one asks you to buy an M3 GTS, only just don't complain anymore when BMW will not do such cars anymore as the M3 CSL or M3 GTS.
Wait until GT3/RS gets PDK? Wait until 458 Italia annouces its time around the Ring. The Ferrari looks so much better than the boring 911 (I do love the911 GT3 RS, not 911 GT3). And wait until the MP4-12C anounces its time around the Ring.
My choices:
458 Italia over 911 GT3
458 Scuderia over 911 GT3 RS
MP4-12C over 911 Turbo
MP4-12R over 911 GT2

Hmmmmmmm..... No matter how many times we look at it or try to justify ourselves, there will prob be nothing on this car that can compete with the GT3RS in any which way possible. Trust me, I would love it to, but I doubt it. And the spoiler does look much better on the porsche. Its the lines of the m that dont go right with it... The car is however gorgeous. But useless unless ur a track junkie

What is innovative about this? All the modifications, besides the exhaust and paint color, are mediocre at best.

I'm more interested in the 4.4L upgrade. It's torque we really need.
