Saw this on tv last night. A lot of good things going on with it but if it FEELS like the base model at all, I'd pass.

Wondered about that. I would assume for the same reason we didn't get the M3 GTS?

It was too costly to homologate the engine for the M3 GTS.
IMHO the Lime Rock edition should have been the M3 GTS with the regular S65 engine.
