Because of the reason that this BMW M3 GTS is weighting only 3,285 pounds (a normal BMW M3 is weighting much more: 3,704 pounds) this BMW is much more faster than the standard version of it but of course that if you will have the chance to own such a car, you will be able to use it just for entertainment or to transport yourself and another person to somewhere. >> Read full article

Yes, there are some chances to happen this and I’m so much against it but all I can do is just to tell you why I don’t like this move. Well, I don’t like this idea because the BMW 7 Series is a very luxury car and it deserves so much to be built in Germany, also known as “the house” of BMW cars.
