This is something cheap honda's do, fake CF vinyl does not belong on an M3. Fake CF replica's are another story

Well you couldn't have gotten some real CF wrapped parts for that much. It's about $2000 for the full package, usually.

At least it's 1x1 CF Vinyl

Okay, dont get cheated again this time. Contact one of the vendors on this forum, and buy BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Trim.

Here is the link. http://www.renn-spec.com/product_p/bmwp-cftrim-e92c.htm

http://www.renn-spec.com/product_p/at-bm-0214.htm

There are a few other vendors that offer these too. Check it out in the sponsor section!

Looks pretty jankey. Vinyl is no substitute. If your going to do something make sure that you do it right the first time.... Use real CF. It may be more expensive but it looks way better than some fake CF!!!

I totally understand your concern and how you feel!
Try to enjoy it as your personal M3 enhancement, enjoy it as getting a new toy worth $300!
Later on you may have different preference.
Don't worry, be happy.

If someone tell you that look is fantastic, you will be a happy fellow.
M3 is already an extraordinary car, any kind enhancement is .
You are a lucky fellow!

What is real or fake, depend on your personal point of view.
What is happy or sad? I believe you how to choose.
