Gorgeous except for those hideous "matched" reflectors. I would be tempted to leave the stock orange ones or paint them the same yellow as the calipers/manifold.

I don't know, just throwing it out there. The reflectors look out of place regardless, so I rather just embrace the madness and go for the color contrast (I had carbon fiber ones on my alpine white).

Except maybe on black cars, the color match reflectors are BS in my opinion. It never matches right, especially in photos or any kind of overhead lighting. It's so close, but not quite there, that it reaches this uncanny valley (google it) for reflectors, where it looks like there is something wrong with your bumper and you did a half-assed job on trying to cover it up.

Most people seem to like it fine, though.

The car is gorgeous in any case, just a little nitpick based on personal preference. We need to see more interior pics and ass shots!

You make a good point. I have a black car and my reflectors are color matched. It looks clean, however if you are rocking a special color the reflectors are definitely more noticeable.

I was literally thinking the same thing the other day. The BBS FI's look absolutely perfect on the M3, almost as if they were made for the car!

I honestly think blue is the best color for the M3 at this point. Between Santorini, LSB and Monte Carlo they all just look spectacular.
