    M3 GTS Revving

    Sounds great, but not quite as aggressive as the aftermarket exhausts available. It has to meet emissions so understandable:

    Damn that sounds really good for OEM.
    It's funny to me though, if someone had put the exact same wing on an E92 M3 he would be ridiculed. Now the factory does it and it seems okay and we all (most) accept it.
    Again ... funny?

    Kind of how it would be if someone mimicked the GT3-RS wing and color schemes on their regular GT3 had the factory not done it.

    Eh, too docile.

    If I had a 8.5K RPM DOHC ITB V8, it would be SCREAMING catless from the headers back.

    Sticky, your exhaust vid was MEAN!

    It's an akra exhaust, you can buy it.

    The roll cage you can get not sure if you can but it directly from BMW.

    people do put the GT3RS wing on the Reg GT3. To suprise nobody seemed to ridicule at all. Actually most liked it and several people did it

    Although one guy did put the RS stickers on his car and people chimed in a bit....would of been ok imo if it was rs style badges but just said gt3, but his said RS so, no bueno

    Oh I know, but imagine if they put that wing on there if there was no GT3RS.

    Well, I don't like it even from the factory. I'd accept it if this were only driven on the public roads when it was going to and from the track. Or maybe on the autobahn if, in fact, there is some positive aerodynamic benefit from it. I suppose some owners actually will treat it that way. But, I think most will just drive the car around on weekends. Then a big wing like that is just stupid.
