La Auto Show 2008 M3

I went to the LA Auto Show today and took a few pictures of the new M3 with my small Digital.

The Amber Reflector is exaggerated so much more than the non-M E92...

Totally destroyed the front of the car.

Yup, exactly what I was thinking. But look at it this way, LongTran will probably have replacement painted reflectors available for pre-order long before anyone picks up their M3. No excuse for anyone to have those reflectors on their car more than a day or two at the most!!!

Blacklines

I wish blackline tails were standard on the M3... to give it more of that Euro look.

The coupe looks awesome. Sedan looks a bit "crunched" up.

Dude...I really think these reflectors are just placed onto the bumper. Meaning...if you get them off, no hole there. I could not get close enough to tell for sure, but it is not like the reflectors on the e92 that are slotted and placed flush with the bumper. These literatlly look just glued on top. I think that you get them off without damaging the bumper....no need for color replacements. Easy fix.

It may just be the angle of the picture, but the tips on the sedan look closer together then the coupe

They look like stickers to me too. I'm hoping they are.
