Anything that helps differentiate a white m3 is a good thing IMO. I like it!

It's just subtle enough to look good.

The thing about the tri-color is that it's suitable for white paint...but not so much for the rest of the palette.

However....I saw this M3 a couple of months ago, and the driver has another great idea that works, too. (see pic)

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Eh they both look good. I bet the black outline would look worse on his color car and better on yours.

Are these just the stickers you put on yourself or is it painted like that?

I'm thinking of going the same thing, but just in front of the rear tire. May even help protect the paint

I've got an extra set of these as I decided to go a different route. Got them off of Ebay for $18 shipped. PM me if anybody wants them for $11 shipped. Comes with both driver and passenger sides.
