Not really liking the red accents on the exterior but the car is sick. If only it was in the US and a coupe.

it's like those lightweight porsche models, filled with A/C, Navi, parking sensors and PDK and Replacing a proper door handle with a cloth grab strap to "save weight"...lol

Anyone know what the part number on these seats are going to be.. The seats in the m3 are my only complaint with the car. These seats would be perfect!

Sorry but your info is way off.

The only cars with the door pulls are the GT3 RS 3.8, GT3 RS 4.0, GT2 RS, Boxster Spyder, and Cayman R.

Only the Boxster Spyder and Cayman R of all those are even available with PDK.

Navi, A/C, and even a radio are optional on all of them.

I am liking the added power to the engine and the idea of overall lighter and better sounding exhaust on the M3 sedan.

I wonder why they could not do a carbon fiber roof. I also would have liked just naked CF roof, trunk, hood, and splitters.

Hhhhm. This is kind of a confused car.
Again, why go threw so much trouble with all these carbon fiber parts and so on, if your going to add a navigation system, 200 speakers, and a whole bunch of other stuff I will never want or need when flogging my whip around the THE RING.
BMW has done this at least ones before. If you are going to build a performance car, build a performance car, and leave out all the cushy stuff.
It should be German, and Spartan in nature.
That's mt two cents.
That said... I like its looks, but I think it will get a royal tongue flogging from Jeremy over at Top Gear.

No offense, but to be fair, I feel we can ask the same about every other fully loaded m3 out there.

I still think ///m did a great job with this car especially since it has all those features tacked on. It isn't like the cayman r or boxster spyder where they saved weight by taking out AC, the radio, and door handles and then charging you more for it.

The engine is the least impressive part of the car, IMO. It makes less HP/L than our car.
