How exactly is this overpriced? why dont you ask your dealer how much it would cost you to get a frozen individual color, just for fun?

Fast forward 10 years, with the limited production numbers this will be a *hot* item on the used market. It will fetch $$$ where your nice mineral white will be $20k if we're lucky. Thats what is special about this edition, and the fact that you will probably never see another one on the road very soon.
You have a good point, but the counter point is, no one should be paying sticker for a regular M3. You can get them for $600 over invoice or even less if you're a repeat customer since there's a $1,000 credit available there.
You'd be lucky to get any Edition cars for MSRP since most dealers will have a "market adjustment" tacked onto the price.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
