I notice the air spoiler in the back is hinged. I wonder if it is adjustable (or automatically tilts more at high speeds)?

Let's see: Stroker engine. Check
Fall Line Roll cage. Check
Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System. Check
Recaro seats. Check
You choice of coil-overs. Check
BBK's of your choice. Check.....

I'm tired of typing everything else, but I'm sure they can come close to GTS figures.

Correct, it is a simple SS test system, since the TI systems (which will be NO Akra) are not available yet

I was not listing the exact components but only the popular add-ons to make it "almost" similar to the GTS.

Amazing car, amazing color.

while its true that you can come very close to replicating this car and it will cost you a LOT less, an OEM track car like this is going to be hard for any tuner to replicate.

If I had a nice Porsche or Ferrari, this would be the M3 I owned.

I would not want it any other way. THe GTS is pure

On a side note. I think Nelson's E92 Atlantis Blue is the closest here in the US.

Wow, it looks awesome in those pictures. Valentino Rossi was given one by BMW, so it must be good!
