M3 spotted in OC PCH Laguna area! pictures!

Was following it for awhile until i saw the quad exhaust. Couldn't get any pictures of the front because of traffic. But saw the "bump" hood and also the grills were being covered. Used camera phone so quality isn't perfect just thought i'd share.

I haven't been one to comment on this yet, but I hope and pray that BMW are not moronic enough to expose so much muffler on a $70,000 car.

A low-hanging muffler lowers the center of gravity. You know, kind of like the CF roof. The two go hand-in-hand.

Thanks for going to the effort but I really wonder what is the point? There are much better virtually undisguised shots out there now, and professionally taken pictures. What do these pictures really add?

just sharing and in case someone is from/in the laguna area they'd keep more of an eye out in case they want to catch a glimpse of it in person, specially since someone said they saw the same car in the same area. and also what monsta said

I was just behind a e46 M3 & to my surprise I noticed that its muffler was visible, then I noticed that it was dropped really low, so much that a portion of his wheels were hidden by his fenders...I never noticed it before how visible it actually is & it should be less visible since its dropped, now I need to see one that isn't dropped to see if you can see it more if it weren't...
