Wow, I really dislike that hydro-dipped woodgrain exterior molding/spoiler and the CF bumpers. Just looks wrong to me.

I'm OK with modern interior (including hidden touchscreen infotainment display), different engine/brakes, I just would prefer the exterior to be more OE classic. His money obviously.

I'm with you. I like the chrome bits to stay chrome, except possibly for the window trim.

Not a fan of the mods, as these cars get older and rarer, I find them best looking in stock (or at least close to stock) form. Like this one.

I wonder if this will be gifted to a friend of his. Doesn’t really strike me as his car.

I'm not crazy about the wheels, either. Are they 20 or 22s? They look.too close to dubs for my taste.

Same. Mine will look almost identical to the one you posted. I even have the stock wheels ready to install.

The wood trim on the exterior is really whats throwing me on RDJ's car, I could live with everything else even the auto.

I personally don't mind it to be honest. Sure, these cars are rare enough and stunning as is that I'd prob want to not mod as heavily, but I wouldn't mind doing something along these lines with my E36 M3.

P.S. just noticed the outer trims. Nah, that's gotta go!

Hahaha, the headlight grills are $3K. the little chrome pieces that sit under the rear bumper are $400. There are little springs that keep the windows from bottoming out in the door, they are like $45 each. These are used prices.
