This is a great color if you want to accentuate how busy the front bumper is and how bad the rear looks. That hockey stick on the side just screams serious driver.

There's just too much "styling" going on which ends up making it look tacky.

Maybe i am not young anymore, well i am not, but the design is just so noisy for my taste. It should all be toned down.

I actually prefer Brooklyn gray to Porsche chalk. Chalk goes very beige. This has some more blue to it and generally reads more gray than chalk. Almost a darker hockenheim silver.

BMW needs to stop with all these stupid "fins" on their trim pieces.

It's like BMW thought we would all forget about JC Whitney after all these years and be "original."

Why does BMW persist with the black painted lower trim around the new M cars. It makes the cars look even taller. Really poor design.

Funny how none of the aero actually does anything worthwhile for the car.

I like the color, the overall look is better than M2,

Door handles E28 E36 style, give it a cool factor, still would prefer something like lambo/GTR door handles.

Who thought at BMW this triangle of bermuda on each side of the bumper must be nuts. I see them in IX, I4, here. What the hell, it goes nowhere, looks so out of place.

This car could look way better in a spec without it (standard) but then you dont get rest of the nice stuff.

I personally have a Thundernight M240I on the way and for me I feel the M Performance parts just look abit to over the top and tacky.

The only parts I would consider would be the rear spoiler lip and rear diffuser in terms of the M Performance exterior parts at least.

The interior parts are nice and carbon door sills but as for the exterior parts the spoiler lip and rear diffuser are literally the only parts that don't look to bad imo.

As for the rest of them they look like a child's idea of good modifications.

The hockey stick on the side is hideous and need to reduce the size of the front bumper ducts.

A neighbour a few houses down just got a white one and I have to say the side profile is very nice, but that's it. Headlights and tail lights are horrible...that lower black plastic trim is just nasty. Why would you want your performance car to look like it's high ff the ground? You basically have to put PPF on it right away as well.
