They should've just put a nice ///M3 stiched logo with Germany colors and call it tiger stripes

For some unknown reasons, BMW never put Carbon fiber roof/manual gearbox as options for Chinese customers.

You are right, no LSD for C63 in China. Actually I think nothing except color is optional for C63 in China.

And there is no RSs at all......

The Ferrari sold 10-20 599 China editions from last year;

Lambo sold 20 670 SV China editions this year;

Also, BMW sold about 50 760Li China PRC(People's Republic of China) 60 years anniversary editions last year.

I think the M3 tiger edition logic is OK considering numbers above. But 250 units are way too much for Chinese market. Imported low-profile high performance cars like M3 doesn't fit the market very well with the super high price-tag (3 times of a E90 3-series).

I wouldn't be surprised if this edition is coveted by Chinese populations living in the west as well, hence the production run of about 250.

I think they did a great job theme wise on the exterior. I'll leave my interior comments to the imagination

Interesting Tiger. But I think people in China will buy a Buick LaCross instead!!!!!! Buick sold over 100000 cars in China.
