So is it art because of how much someone spent on it? The diversity isn't what bothers me, diversity is fine. I appreciate many types of art, but I have trouble seeing this as art. It is probably the discordant lines combined with the lack of balance. An example would be the sheet metal riveted to the bumper. The blue headlights are not functional. And the wing is just silly.

I agree with you about putting TVs in cars though.

Just goes to show that money can't buy good taste.

I don't think it is about taste at all - given one of the photos is on the track, it is clear that it is modded for track use. The Red tow eye is the giveaway for that - it is mandatory in certain countries for track use. That would also explain the rediculous rear wing.

However if it is purely for road then the guy is a Dork.

I agree with this comment. This guy has a role cage in the rear of the vehicle and all of the interior has been gutted. The interior trim is only there, I think, because I don't there there was anything offered when this guy did all this to his car.

I dont think it is a dedicated track car. My guess is that it is for track and street. 100% race/track BMW's don't typically have that much interior left in place or folgers cans for exhausts like that. It looks like a ricer street/track car. The guy definately has no taste. I understand race mods, but there is no need for the tacky-as-hell blue headlights that match the ugly rotors, "PINK" tow-hooks, and so on. The guy would also be a huge d.b. if he actually drive that car on the street with that wing. I understand that it helps with downforce on the track, but he still has the i-drive controller and so much else in the car he could rip out for weight savings if it were a dedicated track car. Plus, I am not convinced that I can see the roll cage in photo #4, which means that it may be a bolt-in that can easily be removed for street use.

In addition, it appears that it has the original steering wheel (with air bag) and front side air bags. No way is this only a track car.

Seems more like a wannabe than a true racer - removing the carpeting in but no roll cage (unless not needed in Japan) seems like a joke.
