I posted it mostly because of the tail lights but I did notice the badge on the wrong side to which I thought was funny and the side mirrors. Also it was a really strange purple color that didnt look like an oem color but I'm not sure someone correct me if I'm wrong. The pic makes it look more blue than purple but it was definitely more purple.

Looks like techno violet, a rare but still OEM color. Here is an example on an E34 M5

Those side mirrors are oem E36 M3 mirrors.

And yes looks like techno violent or Daytona violent

Looks like it could be an actual M3 sedan. But that badge and those taillights don't help it's case

it made me sad because someone did that to an M3, it has M3 door moldings which most ricers making a fake M3 wouldn't know to put on

That's a shame it has the capability to be a really nice car then.

How can anybody complain about the E90 models? They're better put-together, quicker, more responsive and waaaaaay nicer than the E46 models. And isn't a car picked out for performance and not because of the looks? Unless of course, you're a rice head.

I'd prefer something that appeals to me when I look at it, as well as something that appeals to me mechanically. I'd much prefer this over a car that doesn't look good (TO ME) but is fast as hell. It's just how I am.

The E90 Sedan, I wouldn't touch.
The E92 Coupé, SHYEAH BOY.
THe E93 Vert, I'd be an idiot not to touch it.

PS: My car is as stock as a rock.

yep. It's possible to have both. The only place I put pure performance ahead of everything else is racing.

I like the exterior of the E9X cars OK, but the interiors suck gopher balls. They look like your father's Oldsmobile. Ick.
