Did anyone ever did the math of how much extra a sucker can pay for wheels,steering wheel,decals etc for a fully (customized) car?
I have to agree. There is nothing for the M3 besides an idiotic Steering Wheel and some over priced plastic stickers. Amazing...

Right here is where I read the article.

And now I think " Weak sauce BMW. Way to ruin my evening."
The problem is that they are not listening to their customers. This car will stay as is if BMW has anything to say about it.

The X6 already is an escalade, more about making a style statement than being useful for something. Come to think of it, an escalade is more useful in many ways than an X6. Of course the M3 would be the most useful for doing with BMWs do best...the ultimate driving experience.

I thought M division is resposible making car go faster around corners? Or maybe due to recession they created new position in M division "Interior/Exterior Decorater". Well, it looks gay!!!!!!! We don't want to define mighty "M" by stickers do we?

Well I guess we M3 Sedan owners got left out...of course if all they have are poser stripes I'm not complaining. Seriously, the first car I spot with these in the wild I'm rubbing my butt all over...

We should have a contest to find the first moron who invests in stripes who hasn't bought a clear bra yet...
