Not really a huge Miata fan. But that red one looks smooth.

the wheels. thats what's making this otherwise dull car look hot. It looks like its got after market exhaust. any info on that?
"Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder", I cant blame your eyes

Its got an aftermarket end-can and stock headers with cat-con, it runs loud and and sounds great at 180 kmph on a stretch. you need to hear it to believe.

I guess these rims are standard on the SLK350. The SLK200 comes with either 5-spoke alloys or steel-lookaline wheels.

First new M3 here i guess. Randomly parked in front of the Vittal Mallya rd Shell bunk. Almost similar to ecks' car.

didnt blank out the plates, cause it was TR.

Nice pics JayR - especially the one of the carbon roof.
If things go as planned, my dad might have a lot to do with the next-gen M3's carbon roof

btw, I just love the bulge on the bonnet!

cheers

@ anekho,

Thanks dude.

And if you are into the carbon fibre business, i hope the material and tech will be avaliable more freely here in india.

Nice find and pics Manish and JayR.

BMW calls the bulge on the bonnet a "Power Hump" which is not a cosmetic modification but a functional design to accomodate the M5's V8 engine.

"Power dome" is the apt version! And yes , that is very similar to my car but please subscribe to my thread and see the phenomenal changes that are about to be made to my M3 as soon as the "parts" arrive.

You mean the 4.0L V8 right? The M5 has a 5.0L V10.
