Matte Black M3

Stole it from E46fanatics

I'm not sure why they didn't paint the entire car, but the exterior looks good minus the grilles, plates, and badging.

Looks interesting. I always liked the matte-ish silver on the concept car.

I've thought about painting mine flat black....maybe later in life when I can afford to use it as a dedicated track car. My E30 is going to be flat black when I'm done working on it. Oddly enough, when I walked outside this morning, there was a thin layer of dew on most of the car that gave it somewhat of a matte look; it looked great.

Looks alright. Doesn't compare to jet black. I think flat black appeals more to exotic cars with their sharp lines or heavily curved bodies, thus better showing their features. This is just okay. It doesn't have that flair nor does it grab me as the other colors and makes it look tame.
