I'm seriously surprised so many people think this looks good. I think it looks extremely cheap and tacky.

The squinty headlights scream aftermarket to me. The rockers/rear fender are a very good idea, but the execution looks like a cheap fiberglass molding. The proportions are completely thrown off. The rear just looks thrown together. The front looks like a cheap fiberglass kit too. Every line (especially the lips of the fenders) has been softened and warped too much.

I guess that's what people like...

What I really hate about my M3 is how the rocker extends further than the rear fender. It's the reverse of a coke bottle which makes the car look dumpy from certain angles. The Brabham goes overboard but it's more proportional.

sorry if this sounds pessimistic, but i dont think any kind of modded m3 will beat 7:20 on the ring, not even one thats 3 times as expensive as the car it aims to beat.

The Viper acr IS a racecar that somehow is allowed on the street.That M3 is a Sweet car, just for that kinda money, i want a lp640, not a m3 with a body kit and a slighly higher redline.

Those rims are MAGNIFICENT. I would rather have 5 stock e9x m3s rather than 1 Brabhham e9x m3, but they did make it look nice.

if this was 1999 and we were in the dot com era, and I had the money, and wanted a collector's item blah blah blah, sure...

in 2009, with the world's current economy, you would have to be a raging mentally challenged individual to pony up $310k for a 3 series.

i like the rims, wouldnt put them on my car though...
i think your paying more for exculsivity than anything, so there is no point debating how absurd the price is, i am sure theyre sold out...
agree with you guys though, for that kinda dough, i d buy somthing else, maybe a boat.
