You can't look at it that way though, comparing a stripper M3 (60k) vs a fully loaded M3 with Performance part.

When you add the price of all those options + Individual paint, it will cost more than the LRP Edition M3 anyway.

Now if you think that the Performance parts aren't worth the $$ to let's say other aftermarket vendors, that's a completely different story.
