WOW. It looks stunning. The only downside to me buying this IF I had the money would be the frozen paint. Although I absolutely love how it looks, I wouldn't be able to stand taking care of that paint.


....now that I think about it, I'd probably wrap it in the exact same color vinyl upon delivery hahah

as others noted why have navi and premium sound in a lightweight track car?

OH, I know why, because BMW is in the business of selling DAILY DRIVERS, even if its a lightweight special edition.

some people do not seem to get that.

I dont think this was meant to be a stripped out track car. I think it was meant to be a special-edition street car that can also serve as a better base for someone who wants to adapt it for track use.

I doubt the purpose was to shipa track car like the GTS or else they would have named it the GTS Sedan.

My bet is the exhaust is just the performance exhaust.

Keep in mind that the e90 is going out of production in just a couple of months.

Seriously. Red accents also = fail.

No CF roof = fail

Doing this only to E90 platform (as of now) = fail.

However, the presage for future improvements and CRT innovation in this car = WIN. Overall, it's a sick car and I would love to have one.

As SCOTT said, this is just BMW showcasing what they can do with Carbon fiber technology. Can't wait till it's implemented into the next generation M3.

That doesn't make much sense, in that regard, the regular M3 takes care of that duty wonderfully. Add more uncomfortable seats and still try to keep it as DD as possible? You either build a track car or you build the regular M3, this is a near senseless version which is why they are probably only building 67 (as a higher demand would be shocking).
