Lastly this is a site dedicated to the E92 M3, do we really need these nerds coming in here and saying the car looks like $hit and that there E46 M3 is the greatest end all M3 of all time?
I am not a Skyline lover and am a big BMW fan (owned E36 and E46 Ms). Still I think it is totally fair and accurate to call a bit of "rice" on some elements of the new design. I know it will probably grow on me (and grow fast). But if there are as many people saying this as their are it must have some truth. Looks are subjective, but if 20% of folks say it is a bit "ricey" then it must at least have some definitively ricey elements present. Part of it also is (like I stated in a separate thread) that many of the indivudual design elements just don't seem to fully work together as they did with the E46 design.
