Also, they used similar wording for the E46 M3 CSL. Tagline was "Street legal. Pretty much."
With the CSL, that actually applied, and it wasn't street legal in all countries, like the US. lol.

EDIT: I remember, that was the tagline for the M3 competition package poster/advertisement. Meh, was kinda funny, but certainly not as douchey.

There is no performance downside, but you lose so much of dat feel of a highly tuned naturally aspirated engine.

Actually, I think that'd be pretty cool if they tagged up the road surface of 17 just like the nurburgring.
