BMW has a philosophy about increasing braking power in relation to increases in engine power. This raised quite a few eyebrows when the US E39 M5 did not get full floating brakes like its euro spec counterpart. All signs say the E46 M3 will not get the more powerful and lightweight full floating brake rotors either.

Similarly, it is very possible the spirited GT version of the M3 will not make it to the US either. There are countless features the US does not get. Posting rude remarks probably will not change this. I wish it were that easy.

I know that we are not getting the same brakes but just like Mr. Grinch says that doesn't mean the chassis is detuned. US holds a lot of the market in M3's just pisses me off that they keep all the goodies from us. How difficult is it to make these parts an option.
