Doesn't anyone read the article? This came way before the lime rock edition. From back in May.

BMW marketing at it's best. Some sucker actually bought this. BMW can put a M Performance sticker on any car, paint it in a new color and charge $10K more for it. Good job. bSheeples.

i agree 1000pct. overpriced stickers and carbon fiber. I think BMW will go MM3 after they get done using all the single digit numbers to put after M.
M1,2,3,4,5,6,7,etc
It will be MM3 super sick extra stickers and a 20k exhaust that is awesome and increases hp by 3
Where is my damn F10 M5 ED already?

I don't like it, but I don't like matte finishes on most cars. A high gloss paint is better, IMHO. But they make them because somebody will pay the premium.

Blue. Blue. Blue on a BMW....... High Gloss with fresh wax.....

So... will I be the first to think that the 6 series lurking behind here is more interesting subject matter than the Performance paint upgrade edition?

Looks really clean.
^^ This. Enough of the tired ///Marketing crap and let's get some shots of what looks to be a stunning e24.

I've never heard of Japan Red before -- looks nice. I would be interested to see it with a gloss finish.

But what's this business about a wrap? So the 10 red M Performance Editions have a gloss paint job with a wrap?

Are the blue and white M Performance Editions a true frozen paint job or wraps as well? If it's truly a wrap, then that really cheapens the car...

Not even an M Performance Exhaust as standard equipment? Really? Granted it won't add to performance, but it sounds great and would at least be in line with the rest of the "we'll call it performance even though it really isn't" items that are on that car.

On the F80, they better rectify this since we're dealing with FI, and "performance" ought to imply more power and/or better brakes, suspension, less weight, etc.

The M Performance M3. It even sounds ridiculous.

I don't really like it. I think the matte colors work very well on black, silver, grey and maybe even white and blue but not red.

Nice exterior color, but the M performance crap can go.
