2009 BMW M3: It's All in the Name of Aerodynamics

October 07, 2009

At least that what this odd detail on our M3 looks like to me. I only noticed it over the weekend, so clearly it's not much of a styling issue.

It appears as though this odd cut line was made so the mirror housing could fold in, but it doesn't look particularly well finished, especially for a car that's so utterly spectacular in virtually ever other respect.

Surely, there must be a good reason for the lapse in detail here. Any suggestions?
