This car in my opinion is a total failure. I rather get a 11 e92 m3 add brembos, clubsports, full challenge kit(front ,rear trunk diffusor), full exhaust, racing seats, roll cage, better wheels, a s/c and have serious amount of money left over to maybe buy a 335 as a daily.
+1. thank God they didn't give it the CSL name. def not worthy.

yeah the car was very impressive..... i couldnt quite make out the size on the spacers, but from recently installing spacers on my own vehicle im going to say they were between 10-14mm.

the rotors were very impressive, clearly alot of work went into them, they also had proper ///M logo's stamped onto them.

the KW suspension also had ///M stickers all over the tube work, the car also has braided lines as o.e.m, the calipers are 100% bembo GT items.

im away from my comp @ present with all the pics on, ill try and grab some other detail shots. it was great to spend so much time with this vehicle, the cage is awesome!!

Why would BMW not install a floating rotor?
Il also hoping that wheel with M sticking will be available later.
So what exhaust is this? Doesn't look like the sport exhaust.

It's an exhaust developed specifically for the GTS. Rumor is that it's by Arvin Meritor.

It is a floating rotor, but not the regular type bell and rotor that the aftermarket use. It's done with drive pins from the alloy centre
