The DY looks fantastic! I definitely like the stock rims and ride height much much more than the new wheels and drop though.

Love Dakar Yellow II. But as I said before, not the only DKII E90 M3 as being claimed.

Drop is a bit too aggressive for my tastes, but hey, I don't drive an M3.

Love the color, love the power upgrade, I would just raise the car so the wheels aren't tucked. I don't see the sense in performance upgrades if you ruin the handling and/or ride comfort.

Lol some of you focus on the smaller things! So what If there is another e90 DY or not, in fact if there is cool & props to them it's a great color! I'm sure powerbeast is not trying to compete with who's claims to have one or not.

Great car SC looks badass!!!

BMWNA in fact stated to myself along with 3 other BMW dealerships in NorCal and SoCal that in fact this is the ONLY DY E90 to be produced in the US.

I do understand you had a dealer friend the may have had an E90 DY but I have checked with various dealers and they have checked with BMWNA and a DY E90 M3 had never been ordered.

Thank you for seeing the big picture! I too don't care if there is or is not I was merrily sharing information that I received from BMW stating it was the only one.

Looks great but I am thinking gloss black BBS wheels, even if I hate them on street cars. lol

I think it would look a little better.

A big no on the M5. I would go X5M or X6M. Something more practical or more of a daily driver.

I didn't go black on the wheels just because black and yellow combo is very practical and black wheel really loses its lines. You don't like the F10 M5 either? I actually have an X5M and love it!!!!
