Hi. First off, I think your BMW is, as an M6, a very good and fun car. I own a 2017 AMG GTS. Dark grey, night package with black cross-spoke wheels, blk int. I spent 1.5 years researching on sites, utube, my Benz dealer (I have owned 3 MB previous to my GTS) and anyone I could speak with about the entire AMG GT range. Reliability is one of the things I just needed before embarking on a big-ticket item and you will find no inherent probs with any of the GT's. The packages do differ slightly from USA and Canadian models (I'm in Toronto area) so cannot say whether a GTS will come with the mounts as you hope. Just inquire at a dealer. A few points to ponder; hydraulic steering in the GT range is fab, unsure if you like elec-assisted instead? The ass-end...being rear-wheel...can get away on you even in comfort mode. Fine among Jeremy Clarkson fans/wannabe's., lol! Have not had mine in track mode on a track yet. It is gorgeous to drive and the big nose just accentuates the ride. It is a far diff car than say R8, 911 or BMW i8 in many ways. Test all 4 if you can as they all have their own big character. The GTC, having rear-wheel assisted steering, makes that model arguably better for track than a GTS (550 BHP aside). Maybe look at that instead of the GTS? Good luck
