BMW M Pinstriping

Since I've never seen this before it came on my car, I'm wondering what other M3 drivers think of the M pinstriping:

I actually chose this car over another similar one because of that added touch

Being a vert. M3 owner myself, I have to say that the stripe looks cheap. Might look better in person, but not in the pics. Then again, if you like it, rock it.

Not my cup of tea, but if you like it then rock it. I've never been a fan of pinstripes though.

I like it! BMW has made sort of an inside joke about how many times they can stick the tricolor ///M on the car (do a 1-minute walkaround and you can count more than 20) so this just fits in with that thinking. I actually like the look.

Just don't wear BMW apparel while driving.

Oh man tricolore. I like to flash this around when I'm with the ladies so they know I'm a serious, classy gentleman with money and social stature.



But I only use it with my BMW polo shirt because like any gentleman I coordinate.

ETA: But if you do it with a tongue-in-cheek attitude then I'd support it. I mean, I have a pony on my car.

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
not a fan of pin striping.....had it on my 330i (granted this is not an ///M) when I purchased it - got it deleted...I like the cleaner look myself...



Pin stripes removed


I feel my cars look better w/o the pin stripe but if you like them then go for it

In light of these recent responses, OP I beg you to do it. As of the past few months I generally support anything that upsets the typical E46F forumgoer.
