Listen I don't love the car, I think it's kinda overpriced (cf body panels, ccb, coilivers, Ti exhaust are not cheap though) and it hasn't really shown that well outside of N-ring tests (setup probably a big factor in most) but endlessly criticizing a track car for how it looks is kinda missing the point IMO.
It's almost as if there's no other way that a wing or spoiler can be implemented than to mount one in the most generic and obnoxious way possible.

ok, I don't know I guess the mounts are kinda ugly. I never really noticed to be honest.

Personally I don't find the either the front or rear aero on the GTS attractive. If I owned one and drove on the street I would probably just remove it all but that's me. I get why Bmw put the aero on the car though, to make it faster on track.

Car doesn't look too shabby to me here:

My F80 is coming into the NYC port on the 20th

Should be in my possession by October 29th or so.

I know a lot of you guys aren't big advocates of BMW as of late, but there really aren't many 4 door, 5 seater sedans out there that can thrill or excite as the M3 can. Yes, the current M3/M4 is not as amazing as the old N/A M3's, but it's still the #1 best overall sedan in the market. The ATS has horrid interior, the C63S looks pedestrian, the RS4 doesn't even exist.. there's not much to really choose from.

Either way, it'll make for a lovely car to drive every day with the occasional spirited driving, and maybe some track work too. The Model S will be relieved to weekend getaways or puttering around town stealthily.

Congrats. Not knocking your purchase, and there's lots to recommend the car. Good for you

You nailed it. Its a great car for what it is and nobody can deny its abilities on or off track. Great, well rounded car that you can take to dinner on Friday night with the family and drive to the track Saturday morning to thrash on it.

Well, I've had a long and interesting day to say the least! I picked up my F80 M3 around 7 p.m. or so and wasn't able to snap many pictures. I only grabbed two decent ones.

Some more will come within a few days if anything. But good mother of god the Atlantis metallic paint is simply out of this world. This individual paint was well worth the wait. I'll give more impressions of the ZCP after I drive it a bit more. Can't really push the car until 1200 miles anyway haha.

AhsanU- your car looks amazing. Color is out of this world...You will love the car. Enjoy it in good health.

Is it going to be parked outside permanently?
How much over invoice did you pay?
Let me know when you decide to sell it.

This makes me regret walking out on my deal in the spring.

Very nice! Is that opal white or silverstone interior?
