It is a very nicely finished step above the regular M car, without the extremes most echt track cars inflict on people. The engine sound is sweet.

I am blown away by the work, equipment, and look - I wish I had a pile of cash laying around.

Well, it ainīt cheap at all, total cost including the car that is $90,000 US was a tad over US $150,000. So again, not cheap. I should also add it looks much better in person and driving it is sooooo much of a blast!

I would agree but he probably also has some sort of security. My friend's family that lives in Mexico all have armed guards and bullet-proof cars...

Execellent taste and product, as others have said. I know that in a additon to dollares yo have put a lot of yourself and sweat into this (as well as patience!).

Others should not be discouraged, knowing they cannot achieve this level of perfection, but be inspired to put what they can of themselves into their car within the level of their budget. Personalizing can be anything from a shift knob and pedals, to this extreme.

The important thing, IMO, is that your car is a extension of your personality, and not a transportation device. That's what motivates most forum members.

Some may not be so interested in pure performance so that straight line performance is much more important and well, lets be honest, the car will still perform very, very well, I just donīt think that is my cup of tea yet! I am very fortunate to have "other" performance cars and have an 800plus hp twin turbo V8 Mercedes CLK AMG, that is my straight line performer. I honestly enjoy the RS46 M3 much more!
Agreed, for me it would be the destruction of real ART to add a sc to the RD motor.

I did not see any PDC sensors in your front RD Sport bumper. Did you just disable them?

At least it is still a lot less than the US$250k for the E90, and US$265k for the E92 that we have to pay in Singapore.

Front PDC works perfectly fine, it does have the sensors you just have to look at it very closely!!


Yes Jesus Christ!!!! For sure better!!!!!! On the price I mean.
