While the need to be objective is always prevalent in this line of work, we gotta say that the Austin Yellow is probably the best exterior finish offered for the BMW M3. When the BMW M3 and BMW M4 were launched, Austin Yellow, together with Yas Marina Blue, comprised the one-two punch of launch colors for these vehicles. The finish may be fading away in terms of popularity, but still, it clearly gives the BMW M3 of the current generation an extremely appealing look.
This Austin Yellow BMW M3 comes from HRE Wheels. It features a set of HRE RC100 wheels. Starting at $1,300 USD each, the Series RC1 motorsport wheels are perfect for those seeking strong, lightweight track wheels that can take a beating. Overall, the mesh spoke design makes for a perfect addition to any BMW, let alone the M3 like the one here.
The RC100 feature the I-beam spoke geometry that shows the true nature of these wheels: strong and efficient. While these wheels are designed to be abused on the track, they are still light enough to markedly increase performance and handling. For street or track, these are meant to perform. Overall, they make a perfect addition to a high-performance sedan like the M3.
For this build, the owner decided to go with a set of wheels sized 20×8.5 in the front and 20×10.5 in the rear. Thanks to a Brushed Clear finish, the light theme of the wheels works well against the Austin Yellow exterior.
