You bet it is. At least a few comments every single day.

Major factors = Red mirrors, red accents, red interior, LOUD exhaust, drop top, alpine halos.

Majority of people love it, as opposed to majority of forum population disliking it :P haha. Understandable though considering not everyone on this forum is from So-Cal (diff styles diff areas)

Theres not a day i drive mine that i dont get compliments. But i blame it mostly on my matte blue metallic wrap. New Yorkers have never seen such a thing so everyone goes gaga over it. Gets pretty annoying when they wanna touch it -__-

I actually left it for a day at the BMW of Manhattan for a regular check-up shortly after i got it... and when i went back to pick it up, the service guy told me that it got more attention than any other car they've ever had in their dealership.

Super glad i wrapped it... but the extra attention can def. be annoying.

where it does get a lot of attention is out on the freeway. at least 2-3 times a week, some idiot will try to initiate a race. i get all comers. pick-ups, mini-vans, rice rockets, etc. amusingly, quite a few prius drives want to duke it out. i think that a lot of them have seen that bizarre top gear prius v. e90 m3 comparison.
Some girl in a party bus asked my wife that too. I was confused for ages until I stumbled on this old commercial.

Only enthusiasts would notice my car. Down here in Sofla, you're a small fish in big pond.

But one day i'll have a vehicle one cannot help but to look at.

I get it all the time here in northern Maine. I live here and have a modified M3 and I get people coming up to me asking and taking pictures of it. I have been here since August 1st and have had at least a dozen compliments and pictures taken.

I am a San Diego California transplant.

Its ops normal here. If I was in Irvine California M3's are a dime a dozen

I normally only like subtle changes, but looks good to me. Nice job.

Mine gets attention not just for LSB, but for the way it sounds as well.

Thank you! Same here! but my car was originally silver... got a good deal on it, but the silver wasn't doing it for me. Fell in love with this matte blue cuz it's metallic and not as flat as the regular matte blue. Just had to do it and have had no second thoughts about it.

I see you get attention from law enforcement because of the sound as well. Very nice.

Quite often.
I've actually had a couple people take pics while I was driving down the hwy.
The same thing happens with my Diavel as well.
It's a pretty cool feeling

This 99% of the time.
Chicks: "That's a nice four door BMW. You must have kids. Really shiny!"*
Dudes: "Holy shit, an M3! Um, excuse me, can I spunk on the exhaust?"



*Not intended to insult anyone. I know there are a lot of female car enthusiasts that recognize and love M3's, just not where I am at the moment. I actually ran into a female that was fueling up her E46 M3 and she noticed mine and we talked for a bit comparing car love affairs...

I love watching the look on people's faces when they turn to look back in my rear view mirror.
