YAY or NAY

Was thinking about ordering one of these Decals but wasn't sure. I have seem them on the e30 and e36 M3's around me and it looked ok. Was almost thinking of just getting it for the Car Shows but it might be too ricey? worth $75. Any and all opions are welcome.

I think it looks nice and not ricey at all.

Having said that, I haven't seen it in person and it might look "off" or not good in person. There's no better way to know than to get it and try it. If it's not something you like, then you're only out $75.

yeah i agree, if it wasnt $75 you could just get it and take it off. let me know what you end up doing im curious. cuz i can see it looking cool if you got it just for the car show, but as far as driving it around as a dd, not a fan. thats just my .02 though!

I actually like it. I wouldn't do it on any other colour other than AW. If your car is nicely modded then do it, if stock then leave it without the sticker.

It was an identification mark (as if the adjustable rear spoiler and front splitter weren't enough to visibly set it apart). I kind of equate it to putting M3 badges on a non-M3.

It might be cool for a little while, but it wouldn't really work unless you took steps to make you car a lightened track special.
