NAY!

If the car were for track only and for competition ONLY, I would say go for it. If it is a street car, I would say HELL NO. Dude, that is WAY too much, and people like me will laugh at you.

Please don't do it...

I think for a more true effect, you should use a real rainbow, not the M3 stripe colors.

If your car was going to be a stripped down track car that you also happened to drive on the street, I think you could pull it off. Absent that, it might not come out so good.

As I've said in the past, BMW's should come with a special paint that prevents tacky decals from being added to it- Look horrible

I don't think they dyno test the engines at the factory, so I'm not sure how that would work.
