Former Stig compares the M4 CSL vs. E92 GTS on track

PS: The brakes on that GTS look comically small, like a bike.

Nice review. He absolutely smoked that M3. The E92 sounds soooo good though.

Imagine if he had been on Cup 2’s and had the full buckets to not have to brace himself. Another second at least if not more.

The GTS has 378mm front Brembos, and proper 4 piston rear callipers. Not a joke single piston piece with an M badge stamped on it at the rear like the CS.

E92 M3 GTS has to be the best modern M car ever made, proper special bit of kit.

That E92 GTS is a legend!

Hot take, I'd put it and the E90 CRT up there with the E46 CSL.

M3 GTS is a legend. Back when special editions got bespoke motors.

One sounds good, one sounds like garbage.

One is a CS and a questionable L (or an actual L depending on who you ask) and one is a GTS which are not the same lol.

TBH, this isn't a fair comparison.

CRT is my favorite SE M3. The e9x era holds a special place in my heart for sure.

Maybe not entirely

His driving is simply amazing

He did a great job comparing the two

It's entertaining for sure lol

Just saying a CSL should be compared to a CSL.

Better comp would have been M3 GTS vs. M4 GTS.

IMHO of course.

Nice comparison. I'm going to bet that if the M4 was also on sport cup 2 tires, it'd be even quicker than that M3 than it already is. I'd take the M3 if I was doing a lot of track days, but I'd hate to drive it daily.

This video makes me miss my E92 6MT M3. That was a fun "special" feeling car when I had one.
