You're being ridiculous in your definition of chassis. The chasis must work with the rest of the car, but a change in another part of the car in no way means there was a change in the chassis. Chassis "detuned" implies the chassis itself was changed, and this most certainly is NOT the case.
If you happen to get a bad batch of low octane gas and your engine automatically degrades the timing, does this mean your chassis is detuned because it now has a less powerful engine? If your answer to this is yes, we'll have to agree to disagree, and I'll remember not to drive over any bubble gum in fear of "detuning my chassis" or whatever it is you're talking about.
Compound holed rotors won't make it to US, probably not Canada either. Big deal, those who need them have a number of options... BMW euro rotors after the fact, cryo treated and upgraded pads if you want to improve them, or go with the UUC motorwerks big-brake system.
GT M3 doesn't even exist, but if it did, I agree there would be a slim chance of it making it here. Even so, stripping down an existing M3, and perhaps using some CF panels, you could get the same or better weight reduction for less money.
Personally, I think the fact these items don't make it here sucks, but their all fixable. The fact that for all (customer) intents and purposes the car simply does not exist yet is much more frustrating to me.
