There is so much they could have done with the M3, but didn't. A dtm tribute could have been incredible, wider fenders, no back seat, cf hood and trunk, semi slicks. This is just tacky.

Wow, a set of them (in the München dealer): amazing.

Just thinking of something not so witty

Agreed, I can deal with all the other decals but the fender Ms don't quite do it for me.

Didn't realise it can with an Akra + CF tips

the problem i have with that decal is the cheesy airbrush rendering for that chrome/metal look. that's what makes it look cheap. fine as a sticker, but cheap on the side of a expensive sports car.

they should've just stuck with flat color on that. would've looked a lot better.

Sucks when a great company goes blah because of their desire to make as much money as possible regardless of what it does to their brand. Apple did/doing it, now BMW is following suit...smh

it's the same exact car as any other M3.

you may want something more special in a limited edition that what BMW has offered....fine. but that doesn't mean that any of the special edition M3s are any less "M" than regular M cars.
I suppose I didn't articulate my point enough in my first post. I consider this stupid because it is not a "special edition" in any true form. It is some paint, aero that can be bought for any other M3, and a bunch of stickers. Oh, and a plaque to make the buyer feel "special." There is no added performance in any measurable way, outside of the aftermarket exhaust. Pure aesthetics does not a special edition make. That is all the Lime Rock and DTM are.

That is why I consider it watering down the brand.
