If I Were Still Going to the Track, This is What I Would Do:

Buy Steve Dinan's 2016 BMW M4 GTS Coupe RWD (assuming it's still for sale)

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/l-Used...ting=347198802

VIN WBS4S9C51GK578753 $105,000 9,981 miles

From the listing:

This is the personal M4 GTS of BMW Tuner Steve Dinan. This car has over $70,000 in parts and labor.

The car has the best of everything available as this was an unlimited budget build. There were only 400 GTS' brought to the US and less then 100 of them were white. This makes roughly 700hp / 700lb.ft. TQ

The car has not been tracked. The new owner will get all records as well as some autographed items from Steve Dinan, owners manual, car show board etc. Car is located at my main performance shop in San Jose.

For Additional Information or test drive contact sales mgr. Chris Mac at CarBahn contact info on carbahn website

Rather than this car, I'd start with a manual (which is my preference) if that's what I wanted to end up with.

I wonder what it would cost to integrate a manual into the car's systems and who has the knowledge to do it. Steve Dinan would know, of course, and he's got the shop that could do it. Is it just a matter of simple coding or "No, that's not really gonna work." or something in between.

What grabbed me about the car is the bang-for-the-buck, the fact that an extremely thorough and knowledgeable owner with sufficient resources built it, and how effective a weapon it would be at the Glen, Mont Tremblant, VIR, Mosport, etc.

The only downside I see to this car is its having a curb weight of 3550#.

Looks like the listing had been removed, so its probably been sold already. I've seen that car in person. Its incredible.

IIRC, the ad showed he'd listed it at $140K in January, so he was pretty aggressive in moving it on. Somebody got a good deal.
