For wax aficionados out there.....I have tried almost everything on my cars & still have
some of everything on the shelf.

For whatever reason, on this orange color paint, Zymol Concours knocks it out of the park!

Same here...great looking car, but for the money I would want AMG Black Edition type upgrades to car exterior, not just OEM CF Add ons.

Orange+Black do look glorious though!

Agreed... It's similar in pricing with the GTR black edition, almost $100k for an M3 is a tad bit outrageous but that's just me...

The lime rock cars are not almost $100k.
There are some priced in the low 70's with the way they were specked. But even at 80k that's not almost 100k.

gtr black edition is a personal favorite just because it's the best bang for buck car you can get in that range. also yea i would have loved better ad ons that we couldn't just walk into the dealer and buy ourselves and put on. as for the paint it's grown on me alot but i still would never drive a color like that

Add XM/Sirius Sat, Black Grills, Pedals + out here 9.8% sales tax not including license & registration fee's....

You do the math for a genuine Lime Rock.

In the 1st month of ownership and 1K miles, the M3 has exceeded all my expectations.

Can't leave it alone...

I think it is fair to say that people buying these cars may not pay as much as you think for them
