A baseline E92 M3 costs 90K Euros here (120K US$) ,which is approximately 30K Euro difference from a baseline 335i. So i dont think I came too close to an M3. Even though , I dont want an M3 but an 335i as the tunning potential is more interesting and -in time- will be more fruitful than the M3's one.

Wanted to keep it "simple" inside. To be honnest the pics are a bit "unfair" to the way that it looks to reality. Its far better in reality ...But still simple.

Am I right though, M3 original wheels with M3 spec tyres give you quite a much bigger diameter of the whole wheel, thus wheels just look bigger? so your speedometer reading is bit off I would imageine, have you had that reset by BMW dealer or smth or just don't care? I'm pretty sure about the wheel diameter of M3 bigger then on regular E9x. Just look at that big sidewall on the 18in M3 wheels and you'll know what I mean. There is as much of sidewall as there is on my 17in wheels.
