BMW doesn't offer this option!!

Saw this 330i in Virginia last Saturday. I would guess that this is the only
330i with a tow package. Gotta love it !!!!!

I've seen several gt3's at track events with hitches. Love it personally.

some people add it thinking that it would protect the rear somehow if they get rear ended. has nothing to do with towing sometimes.

You do a great job of being facetious. I mean you had me going for a second....no one would seriously put a hitch on an M3 that's just a ridiculous thought.

Ahhh I don't think so Sameh probably for a trailer or small boat who knows. It just looks goofy on a BMW

I know right? Next he will try to tell us people drive an M3 in the snow, or even carry passengers, or fold down the seats to transport cargo, or install a bike rack and carry some bikes. It is hilarious what people will do with a car that is built with one purpose in mind - that's it.

lol it's called actually using your car on a racetrack. Anyone that thinks this is stupid/dumb has no idea what they are saying...

Gotta have room to tow the tires etc...

to be honest, why would you buy the m3 in the first place if you want to tow sth? it's like getting a victoria secret model to be your mom instead of being your wife. Doesnt make any sense to me.

what would be wrong with a small hitch to tote some extra tires to the track.

Not really. It's actually like marrying a Victoria's Secret model and then telling her she's never allowed to do the dishes or change a lightbulb. Kinda dumb.

btw, as for the trailer hitch protecting the car, that is a BAD BAD idea. I know from first hand experience. My chevy z71 pickup that I use to tow my boat got rear-ended last year and the person nailed my hitch square on. Instead of messing up my bumper/tailgate it bent the frame of the truck. In fact, that accident lead me to the m3, since I no longer felt safe using the truck as a dd.
