The color theme with the red accent is kind of awkward. But I like the CRT.

So, it's lighter than a normal M3, with better weight distribution, whilst keeping some creature comforts, and offering more power, with some pretty exclusive exterior options and a more unique interior... and yet so many people still complain...?

Really liking the color choice and the red accents. Should of left the hood alone though, those red hood vents look awkward.

Hmmm, if selling out in 22 minutes is awful, then maybe the Art of it truly deserves a second look, because clearly there is a method to their madness.

It was mentioned by the M division that this car would be a 'last hurrah' for the E90 body style as it will end production before the coupe.

Sweet car. Love the accents.

I wonder if you can option it without Premium Sound and IDrive? I definitely would.

Yep. SCOTT hints that a coupe version of this will come next year. Who knows, it might have even more CF.

ok enough drooling... BUT MAKING THE CAR LIGHTER BY 100LB IS NOT CONSIDERED A LIGHTWEIGHT CAR!! I was expecting at least 300lb or more... Hell I can remove the rear seats - more or less - and I will get the same results!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

We have it on our cars also. Its not what you think... Basically when you brake the car or have the engine brake for you the accessories in the car are powered by it so you use less battery power.

I'm curious about how they got so much of a TQ bump, I understand a little tunning for the 450hp, but the TQ...very curious...

I agree... The Akra Evo system by itself saves over 50 lbs.
