Hello and Welcome!

Congrats on your new M3.

Those are the most unique looking wheels ever! Next to the teddy bear wheels of the '90's

I think I have officially seen the first M3 I would have to brown bag in order to drive.

Well, to be fair, to each his own. I am liking the white on the sedan. But those wheels just don't work. If i saw that car, I would think it was somebody with a 335i that spent all his savings making it look like an M3.

Sorry, I am sure my tastes are bad as well so no offense. Just an opinion of another opinionated M3 owner (actually previous M3 owner waiting for my new M3) .

So at least you are driving an M3. Right now my choices are an E350 wagon and a Honda Element. None make my heart race. The E350 is at least respectable. The Element is amazing fun to drive even though it is a box. But it is still a Honda. But nothing better than taking a box to the limits and having the wheels squeal as they fight for grip on Highway 84 in Northern CA.

Gratz on the AW. The wheels really remind of the German army cross, is it? No pun intended.

Damn dude, does it make you feel better when your an asshole to other people about their car? You got pissed off when someone said "its a vert any way, why are you dumping money into performance mods?" so why would you be a douche bag everytime someone posts their car and you don't like something about it


To the op, I'd put the pic back up and ignore the haters, espically slammedm3, he loves to hate

Im not being an asshole at all, correct me if Im wrong but everyone is entitled to their own opinions and when you post a pic of your car, anyone should be ready to hear negative comments. IN MY OPINION (and a few others in this thread) the wheels are not nice looking, not to mention don't suit the car whatsoever...Thats all I was saying!

Are you really going to compare me saying I don't like his aftermarket wheels, to someone on this forum saying not to mod a vert. As it was said in that thread, it is the dumbest thing to say not to do performance mods to a vert as it is only 400 pounds heavier, and barely slower on the track. It is slower, but not signifcantly enough, especially to say not to bother spending money mod it! Thats just plain stupid...and again its someones opinion. I couldn't care less...my vert has those performance mods so that it is in fact as quick if not quicker then a stock M3 Coupe or Sedan! So theres ONE good reason to mod a vert!

We all get flamed at once in a while. To the OP, put em pics back up. You're lucky to have an M3. I don't even have one yet. Just ignore the negative comments. They'll be there regardless.
