It's funny to see the M3 owners telling another to be different, when M3 owners are one of the most conservative when it comes to mods to the point that all the cars looks like a cookie cutter clones. Who in this thread has a 'different' car? I have no problem with darth vader or storm trooper M3s as long as they are tastefully done.

And the only thing worse than a cookie cutter design is doing something ridiculously stupid looking just to be different.

You live in Miami eh??

I think you and I should sit down, and talk about your plans and what direction you will be going.

Because I refuse to let you go down the played out road...Maybe you can go a euro/japanese tuner route...I havent seen that in Miami at all.

Murdered out will make your car look older than it really is, and after a while you will regret it.

I say go AW...with a set of CCW's...or a set of ADV.1's

Save your $$$ on crazy mods and go with an individual color and then do some simple things like suspension, wheels, and maybe and exhaust. Game over.

Storm Troop is played out as well as murdered out (though I think the murdered out fad is almost dead ). Individual colors is the way to go, but don't go and civic your car out with different colored body panels or rainbow colored exterior pieces or anything. thats just borderline rice :x ahah

My car is storm trooped because I love the look, but i hate looking like almost every AW M3 out there. I tried something different by doing all texture black accents instead of matte black accents on the car. I needed to set myself off at least a little.
