I want those seats...actually I want that whole car but I'd settle for just the seats.
glad to see this special edition as an e90 I always liked the e90 m3 more than e92 m3 anyway

hmmmm....i guess....but doesn't it rev higher?

I think the least impressive part of the car is the price. For that much money, I am sure you can get a gt3 or almost a gt3 rs 3.8l. Don't quote me on this...I am american and have no idea what other people pay in other parts of the world.

Navi, A/C, and even a radio are optional on all of them.
yea but how many of those Boxster Spyder and GT3 RSs do you see on the road that don't have those features? NONE
From what i saw, the owners of those particular vehicles + cars at the dealer lot ALL have A/C and navi...

so, Original - unnecessary bits + optional unnecessary bits = what's the point?

I agree... The Akra Evo system by itself saves over 50 lbs.

I don't believe the redline has been increased but I could be wrong

Why is everyone complaining about the DCT transmission? It shifts significantly faster than any human can, although it might not be as engaging to drive compared to a traditional manual. Do you feel the same way about the iconic CSL that only came in SMG?

It is a very light car to begin with, but I still think it is a little silly to have them not install standard equipment and then charge you for not installing it. lol.

i find all of these special editions to be lame (save the gts). they should move to selling a boatload of marked-up individual options like porsche. why waste the dollars on ///marketing for so few units when it's not going to be a halo.
