Surprisingly, even now 5 years after launch in the UK, mine gets lots of attention. I think the Mineral White Comp Pack really suits the E92 shape and also shows off the fact that it is an M3, with the carbon roof.
This is around London, where M3s are far from rare.
I have had people stop next to me at traffic lights and lean out of their car almost as if ready to lick the side. In slow moving traffic loads of grins and thumbs ups.
Regrettably almost always from guys.
My sister in law said it sounded fantastic when I overtook her, though. She is one of those all too rare women who loves cars.
