This car may be a little hardcore for some people here, but I personally love it. There's something about the way the Japanese tune vehicles that jives with me the right way. From the monocolour scheme, to the stripped out interior, roll cage, leather covered racing Recaro's, 6 pot AP racing brakes, painted carbon fiber hood (note no side vents), single outlet exhaust with matching bumper, Motec instrument cluster and a cool looking head unit, it just works for me.

here are some videos too !

Note the OTHER staple of Japanese aftermarket looks...
the body kit lines don't line up properly.

Brutal!

The body kit doesnt line up (as MKGINO said) and the rims look like they are from an eighties Honda. The gay wing has to go along with the stickers.

Why the hell would they go monochromatic white? It is the most plain, ugly color you can put on a car. Looks like white out. Why would they mess with beautiful factory BMW metallic paint?

It's THE ONE, my favorite M Coupe EVER. another time i was asked what my favorite was, i couldn't locate it.

The hamann bodykit is wicked, esp. the front spoiler. The wing is not too bad, and I love the rims. and it's not what monochromatic white, it's the Alpine White from factory just like the E46 M3. I'd love to get this color IF it ever available in canada.
You have to look inside the car, it's a track car, not just for the show, and I think that's why the spoiler is in place and the bodykit doesn't line up like a show car. I have a couple of videos of this car on the track, wicked.

HEY! I said that:D and yes, I do not like the rims. It's a track car wouldn't something like Kosei go better? or compomotive?

I love Mono-Colour cars. Red, green, blue, black, whatever! I love the mono-look. Its like a chick.. the carpet looks good when it matches the curtains if ya know what I mean *nudge nudge*

think Type R championship White. Gorgeous. Or a Yellow Saleen Mustang w/ matching rims.

Looks good, aside from the rear spoiler. But isn't that a Hamman body kit? I like it.

Why does a track car need a stereo and redundent instrumentation? I'd lose the factory instruments and the head unit. Just my opinion.

ugly wheels, ugly spoiler. The bottom pieces on the bodykit should be moulded to the body.

I don't know how you guys can say the car is ugly...
It looks very aggressive, and is almost a full blown racecar, but can still be driven on the street ! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS !

--THE SPOILER ON THE BACK IS REQUIRED FOR DOWNFORCE--

It doesn't look all that streetable to me. The motor sound alone would keep me happy.

I don't think that it is a M Coupe. It is just a Z3 coupe. I have seen them down in the states there is no M things on that car at all. Correct me if i am wrong.

M coupe logo on the dash, Looks like an M motor (Euro?) too.
