Jet Black E92 M3 with MPower Paint Accents

As the title says, E92 M3 in Jet Black with some special MPower paint accents. I think it could lose the thick red line along the bumper, but the other stuff is sweet! Spotted in Dusseldorf. Enjoy...credits to autogespot.com

Why the red line? Looks terrible. The thin silver lines across the sides look good with the wheels. I would get rid of the red and blue stripes and drastically reduce the font size on MPower.

Yuk, it doesnt look clean at all. ITs like a big advertisement like HEY LOOK I HAVE A M3!!! I think the idea backfired on him...at least he turned alot of heads...probably for the wrong reasons.

Yeh its really ugly I totally agree. The red stripe along the bumpers look so terrible. I would however like to see this car with only the MPower graphics on the side by the doors only and see if it might look better. I want to see it on SSII exterior with the graphics in Black with the Blue and Red BMW colors of course.

Admins - HELP - please delete this thread. This car is disgusting, an embarrasment to BMW and the M3.

I like the side stickers on the doors. I don't think the text is too big since the lower case lines up with the stripes, it would look awkward if they were smaller than the stripe width or if all the text had been capitalized. However, they got the M3 power stripes wrong on the hood and boot. They should be checkered and in a bit of a flag style if memory serves. They are just too bluntly there and while they run into the creases of the body panels they start in the middle of nowhere.

The red bumper line I have mixed feelings about. That red stripe definately makes you focus on it (and on the car) but once you do focus on it it doesn't deliver. They should of given it a bit more shape than just a solid bold line.

That's a poser driving down the luxury shopping street in Düsseldorf. Sad, but meets the stereotype one might have thinking of that town.

Some variations including red stripe removed, reduced hood decal, subtract "power" from side etc...a little better but not for the purist lol...

i agree that the red stripe is heinous, but i think that the M color band on the front corner of the hood and above the back rear taillight are kinda cool. would i ever do this??? absolutely not...but hey, the car is jet black (which we don't get to see that much of) and it has a unique touch. i think it could lose the whole M power thing as well. it might look better if there were actually more decals and if it was more of the "pace car" look. i'm uncertain whether BMW had something to do with this or if it was just some german owner.

Alright how is this:

What on earth prompted them to put those red lines on there?

A nice feature of the M cars is their lack of badging, one "M3" on the rear is plenty. I hate cars that need to mention their kilowattage, number and configuration of cylinders, capacity and supercharger, turbo or KOMPRESSOR status........

On a side note, in that first picture the red stripe and the hood sticker help to accentuate the headlamp cluster. I can't really describe it, but try just looking at the lights and focusing on them. Makes them look nicer for some odd reason.

The red lines are a homage to the black E30 Sport Evo, I'd reckon.

A red e92 with a black stripe would possibly look better in this situation.
