such a silly idea.
Not many M3 owners track their car nowadays. & only a fraction of those trackrat have actually driven on limerock park to appreciate this edition.

Might as well make a Nurburgring edition with lowerd & better suspension, lightweight seats & 18" BBS motorsport wheels, BBK & price it way below the GTS. That I would drool over it.

The MSRP of the black wheels is the same as the silver's.

it looks pretty good, and all it needed was the S65 engine from the GTS to make it worthwhile. what a "miss" by BMW. all the "editions" should of come with the GTS engine and then selling at $85k+ might make a bit more sense (still pricey, but better than just visual mods).

I really think they make these "special editions" just to unload leftover performance parts from the factory. Think about it the e92 body is on its way out and im sure they have piles of splitters, steering wheels, comp wheels, exhaust and spoilers left that they know will be in WAY less demand once the new 4 coupe coupe comes out. Best marketing strategy is to make a special edition that INCLUDES all of these left over parts so they can try to re coup some money instead of eating leftovers. Look at the past year, the "performance edition", "china edition", i forget the limited one that was the south africa release, now the lime rock edition. If I had to guess the reason why every one says ONE/200 is because there are more then 200 of them lol. If that wernt the case I believe they would each be serially numbered. Imagine having 3 people with number 44 or something lol. Just my opinion, would I drive one? Of course im not knocking it, but at the end of the production run this is starting to make business sense for them. Like someone posted why make a lime rock road course edition car and only have cosmetic mods?

Saw one yesterday at Fields BMW (Daytona Beach). The car looks fantastic in person, but as others have said, $84K for a 3 series is completely nuts.

That "One of 200" badge looks like it was bought at Walmart.

I don't understand your point... the Lime Rock Park edition includes the ZCP. Therefore, its option price of $10,000 over a base 2013 M3 Coupe ($61,100 MSRP) includes ~$15,289 MSRP in options/accessories if priced separately.

Yes, now that Iv'e re-read your comments, I see my error. I stand corrected.

The problem I have with your numbers (and I should have started this way from the beginning) is they make it appear that a Limerock car is a bargain and, while I like the car, it really isn't.
When determining whether or not the Limerock is a good deal over buying a comparably equiped M3, I believe it's more accurate to use invoice comparisons rather than MSPR comparisons.
Your figures, for example, makes it look like it's a real good deal because the base Limerock MSRP, according to your figures, is worth $76,389 ($61,100 +$15,289). BMW, on the other hand, is only charging $70,100 MSRP for their base car. What a deal!
In fact, using invoice prices, a comparably equiped M3 goes for about $70,000 ($55,290 + ~$14,000 in "standard options").
You can see that from an invoice standpoint, whether you buy a base Limerock car for $70,100 or order a similar car from the dealer for $70,000 invoice, dollarwise, it amounts to the same thing. Except you don't get the decals

Actually, the numbers not necessarily imply that this package is a bargain. They are what they are, getting almost $16,000 in parts for $10,000.

Now, if the $10,000 that could be paid for this package have no value for the customer then there is no bargain at all, regardless if it is invoice, MSRP or even for free.

I'm a sucker for Individual interiors, so in this particular case I rather spend those $10,000 in a full leather interior for example. But for somebody else that plunks $10,000 at IND for cosmetic mods without even thinking about it this may be an alternative -and from factory.

Keep in mind many BMW dealers give CCA members 20% off parts, so you can actually recreate the package even cheaper than the 10K price.

At $5K under the MSRP of an F10 M5, I reckon these will be sitting on the lot. I know of cases where dealers not only didn't want one, but were forced by Corporate to take an allocation... Ask the M brand manager. Oh wait, there isn't one anymore LOL
