Someone is sensitive (BMWexpert).

BTW Georg, Ford claims they're coming out with a Mustang that looks like it will ABSOLUTELY trounce the M3 and RS5, the Boss 302. Looks like fun on a bun.

As for this GTS... Yes it looks nice and sounds stunning, but the price makes me queasy. It also threw it directly into the line of fire of much better cars. It costs 50k USD more than a 997 GT3 RS? You would have to love BMW more than any other car manufacturer or have a head full of cement to buy this BMW.

no it would not..and btw for the price of the M3 GTS you nearly get a R8 V10...

The M3 simple is tested a lot so far and the RS5 not ... the reason why it does look poor performing.

The M3 is so good that it nearly lost a track compare to a Mustang GT...

Standart M3 would kill the RS5 too :P

pointless to compare a stripped out track day special with a normal car...

@golf1diesel

The standart M3 would still kill the RS5...so the RS5 fails even when it\'s a brand new car.
