Lets face it, with the M3, BMW get it right every time. Specially engineered panels and a good deal of effort is made to make it stand out - but not in a wrong way.

The above looks like a few blokes have sat in a room for a day and thought "how can we bling up the 3 series". I dont doubt mechanically its well sorted but the exterior lets it down - for a car of this price. I bet other manufacturers are pissing themselves when they look at that, with its transfer stickers.

There's plenty of cars on ebay that are blinged up like that so no need to make a brand new one like it.

The M Sport Pack looks so much better IMO
