    No I didn't skip over it. I don't see a car prepped for the level of performance that makes the cage necessary. It's clearly there for show just like everything else. Like you need wide rear rubber on what is an xi to begin with right?

    Are there dyno numbers or timeslips posted or just pictures of the car standing still?

    Negged me? Didn't notice if you did...no notification...but air bags aren't going to add much weight, heavy wheels? Do you know the weight for fact? Not like it matters as they are clearly a show set of wheels and tires, nothing wrong with that, I don't use the same wheels and tires I drive around on at the track.....front splitter? And? How many guys have a front splitter or spoiler on their car? And they track it how often?

    Would you care to share the performance numbers for this car please? Because the owner seems to prefer showing it standing still.

    It's not a performance build. Stop with this nonsense.

    Hey, not saying I would bag my bimmer, and I sure as hell wouldn't put those wheels and tires on it, but other than that the car looks great. I'm just disappointed that you didn't list all of the information on the car in your article for people to make their own opinions, instead you posted what you wanted and skewed it to try and trash up a car that is really not a bad concept at all. That's all I'm saying...

    Take out the airbags for a nice KW coilover set, throw some track wheels and tires on it and you've got a pretty badass ride.

    Sure, but that's the only point I'm making is Sticky's original post makes one think the car is bone stock under the hood when it clearly is not. Who's to say they won't track it and dyno it? They just finish it in time for SEMA which was? Oh yeah...this week...

    What do you mean all the information? The pictures clearly show what I wrote is accurate. Nothing is skewed the car is exactly as stated. It isn't setup for performance. It looks confused.

    Yes, the airbags should be taken out. So now you're saying the airbags should be ditched and making a very quick turn. Haha, get it? Because you would need a better suspension setup if you actually intend to turn and not just sit in parking lots.

    It isn't a badass ride. It's a joke.

    Now that is bad...no need to even see the front of the car...that exhaust only works when it's in the middle of a large bumper which will only work on a rear motor car...not hat it matters as the rear bumper and diffuser i so god awful and makes no sense...I guess the guy wanted that stupid wing and figured..."well if I do the wing....then the rest of it can't look clean"

    I actually found that it is not an M3. Friend of mine saw it at the show and said its a 335 under the hood. Lots of money to convert to an M3, but hey I give him props for the outcome.

    I should stop trying to figure out the attraction to wheels that are way too wide for the rubber. Seems like the tire lip's just waiting to come unseated. So not only is it a potential safety issue, but it also makes it look like you blew your budget on rims and couldn't afford proper tires... sort of a lose-lose situation. Click here to enlarge
