    Whats with the 3 Series BMW's and people "Shaving" them? I've read it's their "entry level" car, and they are certainly have a very attractive price point with good financing .. but .. Why do they seem to get treated like a ricers low end civic (At least none have tried to slap an M6 badge on one yet )? Older people obviously don't care, but quite a few I see with younger people behind the wheel seem to remove any indication that it is a 3 .. !? So, whats up with that? Trendy thing to do? or....?

    And whats up with CDs hanging from the read view mirror in mini-vans?! Thats another thread though I guess
    Well M3 GTR is not "just" a 3-series BMW. I would say it's one of the hottest sport cars I've seen in my life. Removing the badge ? Hmm. I have no clue why but maybe to make it look more 'cool" or sumthing

    About the CDs I don't know if it's the same reason as in eastern europe lol. In Poland my friends hand the CD on rear view mirror because it's supposed to reflect the police radar rays preventing them from getting a speed ticket. This doesn't reall work, just like other stuff like anti-radars, or license plate reflection paint.

    In Canada CDs might be just to show off or used a national symbol:



    Personaly I have never been a fan of hanging CDs but I have s mini Poland soccer jersey hanged on the mirror in my car

    Well the thing about the 3 series is that it is an entry level car to the BMW line up, but in compro, it is by far ahead of any car in its class. IMO. As for the debadging its just a look thing, its not like people are trying to hide that its a 3 series, its just that some people like that clean back without the 335i on it or whatever it is on there and just have the BMW on there.
    With the "badge"


    Without..

    If you know how to drive and can understand different conditions, it won't happen easily...yes, if you drive too fast too often, it will happen, but if you drive sensibly(even if in some turns you gonna be sideways because of slippery conditions) it is unlikely that you'd crash...

    Yup it is fun, wrapped a 4 door civic around a tree 2 years back actually. Was fun taking the curves until it lost control..

    As for this car, you can bet that i won't be speeding much on curving roads...

    We have 7 months of the year with snow, ice, slush and everything in between and BMW's still rock. And rear wheel drive isn't a problem really, actually I prefer those because in slippery conditions if you have front wheel drive car, you have to do steering and getting car to move forward with traction that those 2 wheels provide, with real wheel drive, you have 2 wheel's traction for getting car forward and 2 for steering, just better IMHO. Though you're gonna be sideways quite often but that is just fun.

    Holy cow, nice photos. The 328i and the 335i looks attractive, What am I saying ! I mean BMW's has always looked attractive to me.

    Have you seen the BMW X5 modded by Alpine ?, they showed the car on custom made cars on Discovery channel. Here's the car:
