Don't get me wrong, I didn't place at all.

It's an OCD contest, IMO. There wasn't a breakdown by chassis or age. So e9s were competing against F80s. I'm unsure whether judges ruled more harshly against the newer cars than older. It stands to reason it's easier to have an equally clean F80 than an e28 or e36. Again, mileage as a bonus only comes into play when there's a tie in scoring.

But they did reiterate, you could have a 1 of 1 car and not win. It's a contest of cleanliness. Not "clean". We over describe cars as "clean" by 'wow that's in great condition given its age.' What the contest meant was literally how clean/spotless it was. Hence the OCD reference.

I think you just convinced me to go with black mats! looks good!!

Very cool. You should post an introduction thread with some more pics and info. I think I may remember you from BF.com talking about selling it recently?

LOL actually no, I'm the buyer. VERY happy with it, esp. after a $250 detail job that nicely minimizes the paint flaws.
Gonna be the prettiest M3 VIR has ever seen.
