Nekky's "Just another optionless Dakar Yellow E92 on TE-37s" fake build thread

Haven't posted any pics of my 2010 Dakar Yellow 'Edition' E92 so figured, what the hell: today is a good day to get flamed. Colour won't be for everyone but I love it and it pops in person.

I bought this car because I've always loved Dakar Yellow and have never seen another one for sale that I could see and touch before buying. In particular, this is an Edition car which is quite rare. Even rarer is the fact that it has zero options save for DCT and rear PDC. I traded my Mini JCW (fully loaded with factory Recaros and modded too) and have to say I miss the JCW's pulling power up hills. E92 is tons of fun though and you can't beat this V8 for driving excitement. I've spent quite a bit of time in an F80 and am happy to say that the new platform is not, for me, lustworthy enough to warrant a change. While this isn't a "build" per se, I can't drive anything stock. Mod list so far (and probably won't be doing anything else significant):

- KW V3
- Volk TE-37 18x9.5/10.5 +22 on 265/35/18F + 285/35/18R Michelin PSS
- Turner Motorsport test pipes
- Dinan mufflers
- Akrapovic Delete-R
- Lux V2

Future plans... there are only two things I would really like for this car. One being a Euro bumper and two being the BMW Performance steering wheel w/ yellow stripe. Other than that, I'm just gonna drive her and hopefully get to a trackday some time soon. Sorry for iPhone pic quality!

Think the euro bumper is a GREAT IDEA! Damn reflectors are hideous. Other than that I think the car looks gorgeous, but may I suggest maybe LCI tail lights?

Thx! They came with the car, so it was a free upgrade. I'm happy with them. Done all the little things before and man do they add up...

Euro bumper is on the list if I keep the car longer than a certain period. LCI tail lights will NOT be going on the car. This is a 2010 'Edition' and I prefer the backdate *in this case*. I do agree that LCI tails are more aesthetically pleasing, but a friend has a Dakar LCI E92 Comp Pkg and I like that we're different as well.

Don't worry, I joked about this being the #mcdicksM3 long before they were mounted.

Thank you, and good eye. Editions, to my knowledge, are the only "easy" way to get the mirror housing painted body colour. Your car is a legend, JEllis. Thanks for the kind words.

Are you sure that it isn't a Canadian thing? I was under the impression that heated seats were standard as part of the Edition package, given that the seats only came one way (black leather w/ contrasting stitching and stripe). I definitely could be wrong, but I was quite certain... This car doesn't even have lumbar adjustment.

It's not meant to be understood... moreso an experiment. I'm not colour blind, and I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't have rather preferred Mag Blue or White (#1 choice but fuck brake dust in our mountainous city) or even Takata Green. But I couldn't find an OG set (non-SL variant) *with* centre caps until these came up. Keep in mind the tail lights are red too

LOL aside from a few "Hey! Taxi!" that I've gotten from the side of the road, people don't pay much attention here. I live in Vancouver, and this is car heaven where the roads and the weather are perfect, and there's more and more foreign investment every year. 71% of all cars (read: super/hypercars) above $150,000 MSRP sold in Canada, are sold in Vancouver alone. True story : I was walking down the backlane a week ago and saw my 19yr old buddy picking up his Giallo Orios 13' Aventador out back of the Lambo store. So my $50k M3 in a flashy colour with flashy wheels isn't really a big deal.

All good. Doesn't look clowny but I never wanted a black or white or grey or blue E92 anyway! They aren't permanent.
