Agree 100%. I have not seen one aftermarket body part that I would EVER put on a BMW, let alone a new M3.

Do any companies make engine performance upgrades?

So far all there is for the M3 is the software + catback delete by Noelle motors. The thread on it is pretty easy to find. It bumps the hp up to ~476.

urrgghh

Doors like those on Murcielargo and McLaren F1s look exotic on supercars, but cheesy on a daily high performance drive like the M3. I would be embarassed to be seen in that thing

I like those wheels. Im pretty sure that they are 19's. I dont know about you guys, but I'm not into 20's on an e92.

Also not into the gimicks (doors and mirrors)...might as well put neon lights under that badboy.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that style is called "switchblade," right? And they were made fashionable by lamborgini in the 80's? Still a gimmic if you ask me....

One things for certain... that's a ricer alright....

Yep, 300 SL was the "gullwing" - which looked just like e gull's wings in cross-section ^^ This style was taken up by the seminal Lambo Countach - 1970s, and man was that a rad looking car in that era!

It is a gimmick on the ///M drei.

I don't understand how people have such miserable taste in cars. Beyond the hideously ugly wheels, doors, mirrors, and front spoilers, look at those seats. They're flat as plywood. What a piece of trash.

I'm sorry but putting Audi RS4 wheels and Lambo doors on a BMW M3 is the ultimate insult to this car.

In fact I do not like any of the improvements they've made to it. I prefer the stock seats to these buckets (more comfy) too.

Bad bad bad...

This car needs suicide doors. And then the designer should use them!

ick.

There's not much I like about the mods. I can't decide which I hate more - the orange mirrors or the lambo doors. The stickers have got to go. Not crazy about the black alloys either, but they'd be OK for track days. The seats I could live with... As for the rest - I think BMW got it right.

holy cow this is award-winning funny!! those OMP seats look so flat i wonder how's the driver's ass feels like during hard cornering. or maybe those lambo doors will fly open and fenders rub the car to a halt in a turn? + blinded by the orange mirrors?

I think it looks like a ricer. I don't like anything except the front splitter.

That's an offensive interpretation of the E92 M3.

I'm not being rude, just curious: is there a cultural element to this aesthetic?

Exclamation

I actually think the "lambo" doors look ok from the front since the new design has a lot more angular cues, but it looks hidious from the rear. I also think the front splitters look nice.

Everything else is just ok.
