Talk about unique. Those of you familiar with BMW’s aluminum cube interior trim will instantly recognize the pattern on this M3. The pattern is basically a traditional carbon fibre weave pattern but in a lighter silver color which BMW has used on interior trims. While many of us are not fans of putting vinyl wraps on your BMW, for those of you that like the vinyl wrap trend, this pattern is certainly a unique one that flows with OEM styling.
This car is based at BMW Park Lane in London, UK, apparently sitting on their showroom floor with these pictures posted directly to their facebook fan page. No doubt, Londoners who are interested in this car might want to pop on over to the showroom floor to … CONTINUED

Some say the BMW M3 is beginning to show its age, especially considering the all-new F30 3-series has already been spotted in testing. As far as performance is concerned however, the E92 M3 coupe continues to impress and dispose of even recently introduced competition, such as the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe. Many pegged the C63 AMG coupe to give the M3 a run for its money, if not overtake it.

Per Autobild, the “M3 won as it’s sportier and produces more fun”, or as AMS puts it, “afterall it’s the level of maturity which makes the M3 the better car”.
