We got a call from Matt Stellas (aka mfatuation) shortly after Bimmerfest requesting a paint correction for this very special Santorini Blue M3. Apparently during transport back home to NJ, the car wash wiped down incorrectly. Take a look at the exterior paint correction.

We also opted for Auto Finesse Illusion due to its show car status.

Enjoy!
