Well see if I get approved for Inka Orange here in the states
Imagine how pleased you'd be if you bought a GTS, and learned others could order the same color (or any of the GTS parts) for their "cheapo" M3.

After five years, I'm not still not so happy that every BMW I see is Interlagos.

But honestly, The GTS is catered to the hardcore consumer who doesn't care about price...hell, some might have bought the GTS as an investment ().

If it were my money, I would save up a little more for a not-so-collectible 458 Italia or a GT3 RS with a boat load of tires.

The engine is the least impressive part, IMO since it putsmout less per liter than the regular engine.

Love the car.
Absolutely hate articles that make you click through 18 times to read something that would fit on a single page.

Well then you could have bought the magazine when it came out months ago. Hard to complain when they are putting it up on the web for free. Have to make their advertisers happy so they will pay the bills.
