Nice motor mate! Now go on trade it for the coupe version

Just kidding. Get some blacklines and the car will look a ton better.

honestly i perfer the saloon much more, it is more useful, it has lower profile,

what do u mean by getting some black lines??do u mean the line across the whole body in BMW PERFORMANCE

i have ordered the front spiltter, cf mirror cover, and cf side grill, and also a rear diffuser,
what else do u think i should add??

i really regeat that i have chosen the wrong colour from bmw, (the sales said this will be the best colour)
i am planning to the whole car respray into maserati white?? any comments??

Its totally subjective as to what is the best colour - but i knew i would ONLY ever buy the E92 M3 in Alpine White as it is very striking and always stands out and most importantly shows off the carbon roof plus any other CF mods you do to their very best. The Silverstone is also a good colour re the roof contrast but i find it a bit of a bland colour if im honest - whereas the individual Moonstone colour is incredibly striking and probably my next favourite colour after AW. Its all personal though and whereas White is en vogue now, im sure it will quickly go out of fashion like it did a decade or so ago. You could always wrap your car with vinyl in white or matt black?? But definitely do NOT respray the car!!!

White is the best colour for the new m3 especially in the coupe because of the contrast between the roof and the rest of the car. Whatever you do, do not repspray your car.

Blacklines refer to the backlights. Instead of the clear section they are a darker colour and look loads better. I think they are available from your dealer. And whilst you there you might aswell slap the salesman for suggesting silverstone as the best colour

thx guys for the reply,

how cum none of you suggest me to respray the car??

WHOLE CAR vinyl will look so stupid? isint ? it will have lots of air pops.

i did respray my F355 from ferrari yellow to maserati white about 2 years ago, and it look perfect, but it took 6 weeks, because they have to strip the car.
