No - this is a black 330, 4 door - if you check out the Bangalore Speed run video clips, it might be there

Maverick... check the telltale signs of any M car. A deep front spoiler with cutouts and foglamps, a bulge on the bonnet, the oval M-style door mirrors, the tiny boot-lip spoiler and yes, those glorious stainless steel 4 exhaust tips.

Even if one of these is missing, chances are you haven't seen an M. In this case the M3. Even if all have been replicated, most replicas miss out a critical part. The M-style door mirrors.

Haha.. .my apologies Maverick. I am sure you can distinguish one, there's no doubt. Its just that, sometimes even pros tend to overlook certain aspects, which i have personally learnt the hard way as well. Lol.

Either ways, you should post your experience in the E46 M3. Was it the manual or the SMG-II version? Would love to hear a bit on it.

ya revvmaster.. even pros can overlook at times.. like there is this one blue E 39 complete with M kit and even the side flanks.. but what gives it all away has to be the exhausts.. u just cant duplicate that.. I hae been in both the manual one as wel as the SMG M3 E46.. what i can say bout them is that they take ur breath away.. the acceleration is phenomenal.. it is difficult to drive the SMG.. u really have to get used to it to experience the best.. and at times the gear shift gets to hard.. the manual is much better.. but then it all depends on the driver.. and the roads.. also the ride is very hard.. what can one expect with 245/40 at front and 275/35 at rear.. and yes i can recognize these beasts with a blindfold on!!

Regards,
Maverick

Those boots cant be stock. E46 runs 225s front and 255 rears on 18" wheels.

I was refering to the M3 as well.....my E36M3 has 225 fronts and 245 Pilot Sport rears on 17" rims.
Even the M3 CSL only has 235/35 ZR 19 at the front and 265/30 ZR 19 at the rear
