Somehow the painted reflectors cheapen this particular car. I mean, if the idea is to go all out -$5000 paint, $6000 Brembos, $3000 Vorsteiner, $7000 wheels and tires, $2000 paint/labor- then really go all out with an Euro bumper and not some $100 ill-fitting covers.

Great looking car but the photos seem like the editing washed out the color.

Come on, admit that you weren't wondering who put the gravel road in the middle of the freeway! If you didn't notice you are deaf, or have no feeling in your rump.

OK, some of the snow covered roads in the mountains can be smooth because they don't see bare pavement during 'stud' season. I've lived in Chicago, so while frost heaves and pot holes are bad, the ruts here are worse...

Sorry for the rant, our roads just torque me off...

Nice car by the way- those wheels look similar to the RAC wheels (kinda if you squint!).

dakar looks like a flat color somehow.

As a resident of Oregon couldn't agree more! Some of the highways are decent (1-5, parts of I-205) but the surface streets in Portland suck! Potholes everywhere! Driving 35 mph over intersections is like going over train tracks. Godd*mn hippies won't let us use chemicals to get rid of snow and ice in winter so we are stuck with studded tires, chains, and gravel ruining our roads.

As a part-time resident of SoCal, I prefer the roads down there to Oregon...sorry for my rant but I had to get that of my chest!

Love the M3!

Can you post some pictures under normal exposure? Dakkar looks washed out in the HDR photos.

I never thought Dakar would look good on anything other than the E36... until now. This car is the (.)(.) and I'm almost definite that I would slam into the car in front of me if I saw this going in the other direction.

I love the car and especially the brake finish. Second time i see those brembo monobloc GT with brembo GTR finish with the red rounded logo (saw that on a Rauh Welt porsche before).

Is it custom made or special order from Brembo?
