Looks good - but that spoiler looks like its definitely gotta go, unsure about the splitters, sure I could live with them though. Love the car - nothing that cant be fixed with mods!

I like the splitters but would prefere BMW Motorsport brakeducts. I do not think there are any aftermarket splitters, only front lips. Why no carbon difusor? I would like to see M3 ZCP in AW with Carbon parts and Black Gloss trim with rims.

looks like a fat boat in the air. and the 19"wishbones make them look like 17's. the optional 19" wheels now look so much pleasing on the car from a picture point of view in person who knows. gas mileage is soo close to getting rid of the gas guzzler why they cant get it done, is just unacceptable. The car overall looks like the same. the splittters look tacky. Why dont you start off by making the shark fin carbon fiber also with the roof, JESUS.

Wheels

Am I the only one who thinks that the current 19s look better than these competition/gts wheels? I actually think the 18s on some body colors look better than these competition wheels as well.

that's not the monte carlo blue? this one does kind'a look flat. i think i like the oem 19's better. this one is not concave as i would have though (like the csl rims).

So the carbon fiber spoiler and splitter are referred to as 'retrofit items'...does that mean they are not part of the Comp. package or the base 2011 M3?

Start/Stop in North America = cancelling my order. I agree with the stricter emmissions controls, just not on this car...... must be EU only.

I'm with you. In fact, I think I still may just order a regular M3 with the 19s since this comp pack turned out not to offer much.

That's correct.

I don't like the wheels more than my current 19s, and definitely don't like the front 'splitter', and neither the rear spoiler; both look like an afterthought. Thankfully they're options. And what would be a deal-breaker to me is the start/stop feature, especially on a 6MT. Oh, and I like my tails MUCH better too. I knew it was hard to improve on this car.

There's little doubt now that V8s are on the way out brothas! .

What's the point of wider wheels if you are still using the same rubber (245/35)

I don't think the wheels are wider, they probably added spacers

They're apparently 19x9f and 19x10r, which makes them a half inch wider than ours.
