Agree. No to the doors, stickers and the orange mirrors. Everything else is ok.

I can't believe so many companies are ruining this car before I get a chance to own one.

My first impression is that I love the wheels, and I like the front under spoiler.

After looking at the close up of the front though.. I'm not sure if I really like it or not. It definitely balances out the roundness of the e92 front design.

Orange mirrors and stickers need to go. Other than that, looks pretty mean

Absolutely. I hate the front/lower bumper cover addition, hate the colored mirrors, hate all the lame stickers. Seats and wheels are decent. Doors are interesting and may be well done but a bit over the top for an M3. This along with the last post of shlock by ARQRAY really makes me wonder if those guys can build anthing decent.

Tuners need to understand that Lambo doors aren't cool anymore, specially that lambos don't have 'em, and some Civics do.

That's B - A - D!

As to the design study - agree, to orange mirrors and lambo-esque doors. Those seats look good for trackday; same goes for wheel / tires combo.

Black wheels and AW paintjob look great, IMO

The main thing about the doors that makes them cheesy and un-desirable is that they don't open up like the original lambo doors do. You have to open them outwards in a normal fashion before you can lift them up.

So basically you are just adding another arbitrary motion to open up a door.
