This is obviously not as likely to happen in America where big engines are cheap (untaxed). However, in may other countries, engines are taxed based on displacement so for many in Europe, 2 liter engines are considered a healthy size. This doesn't take into consideration operating costs such as gasoline and energy taxes. Also, it's much harder to speed in other countries so there's even less point of buying a car with a big engine. So people will buy a 1.8 or 2.0 liter engine and then add-on a bunch of M Performance parts.

In America, it's simply cheaper to upgrade to the higher trim higher engine variants. That's why you don't really see many M Performance cars in America. There's no point when you can get an M340i for much less money than something like this 330i with individual paint and decked out in M Performance parts.

Finally, cars like this are purely for demonstration. They don't expect people to actually outfit a car like this. They figure someone might want the paint, or someone might like the carbon fiber diffuser. They don't expect someone to get all of them when you could buy an M3 for just a few thousand more.

I wonder why people like you always have to make comments like this.
It's because some people can't handle having too many choices and options. It disrupts their view of the world.

Why spend so much time focusing on her feet? I think you might be doing something wrong...

Looking good!

Nice color combo. Like the Gray, still not a metallic paint fan. Black rims look nice.

Do you not like the plastic kidney grill closures, terrible concept. Also the oval doorhandles cut outs are just strange looking, the Exterior Designers definitely could've sculpted them better and could've integrated the handles into the doors in a more sleeker manner. Other than that everything looks nice in these photos.

It's a lifehammer to break the glass if your car gets in to the water.
I am not sure if it is mandatory in the Netherlands. May be related to regulations.

My 8 Series is this colour and it is super. It was first seen on the 8 Series forum when on show at the BMW Welt and the colour received a lot of dislikes! It got me worried for my order, but once I saw it I realised that it was easily the best and most unique colour choice on offer.

Yeah, not feeling the door handles as much. Seem odd.

The rear end looks so weird to me. BMW used to have such great looking backends but not anymore with this new 3.
