No joke at all, and nothing wannabe about the car, other than with a proper tune it will smoke an M3 and M6 (the latter being only 3 secs faster on the Ring).SMG?
Everything manual? This has to be a joke right?
This is a wannabe M3 for poor dumbos. And btw this color is ugly as f***. h:
Not sure where you've been over the last few years, but SMG is no longer in production (rightfully so). DCT is the new show in town, and no, this is offered only in manual. Going back to true ///M roots of what a car should be (light weight and manual).
Power seats? Yes, an option for people that want creature comfort. But if you are serious about keeping weight down and want a lean and mean track worthy pocket rocket, that (as well as the heating function) is an easy pass (ditto for NAV, upgraded stereo, etc.)
For the same reason why there is no sunroof. Something that by the looks of your response will make you frawn upon. No worries, this car has a designated audience. It likely won't attract M6 owners, probably not even majority of M3 owners who like creature comfort and find a need for the myriad of fairly needless options that can be spec'ed on the car. But people that want a tossible weapon on the track/aggressive street, and have a thing or two for modifications, this hits the sweet spot. Different strokes for different folks...
