stickers and carbon fiber
15k extra
I wonder how much they pay the driver to make an appearance to give the stickers a race feel

I can spray paint my own car and slap stickers on for less money

Jokes aside, I agree with most in this thread. There are too many Ltd Ed.'s and it's making the brand look a bit bad
I would still probably laugh. And given their usually low temper I would probably have a nice lawsuit afterwords. So its a win-win for me.

When this Special Edition BS is all done the M3 will be the most common car on the road. Way to go BMW. I'll stick with my 335....everyone has an M3 these days.

What could anyone hold against a country that makes bacon its national food? Even if it isn't REAL bacon, they must be given credit for the attempt.

...yeah, becuase there aren't many of those 335s on the street...

If you want to go rare, try an S2000. Only 65k ever imported into the US and they're going fast-what with the snap oversteer and the majority of the models lacking traction control.

It's almost destined to become a classic-if it doesn't kill you first.

You know... All cars are limited... Its not like theyll keep making e92 M3 forever. BMW really made "Limited Edition" just another M3 that has minor bits and pieces different than the standard car... Only the GTS and CRT are true Limited Editions... Kh and CSL and the e36 Lightweight or something.

thats what Prosche does and BMW should follow.

I wonder if they realize that they're diluting the "special" from all the special editions. If I was a collector I would be pissed...

I counted five 335s on my 20 minute commute to work on surface roads this morning. There are at least 3 parked right now in my parking garage.

I sometimes see a nice Alpine White E90 M3 parked along one of the side streets. There's also a Jerez Black E92 I see once every few days.

After the 328, the 335 is the most common BMW on the road where I live.

Also, wtf is this DTM BS?!? Comparing this to the actual DTM car is like comparing this home made batmobile to the Tumbler.
