Goose neck wing is awesome!! Very Senna-esque.. I kinda feel it makes it!
I like the one on the racecar better.

And I like the rear deck lid painted white to match the car.

The red lipstick grille surrounds are terrible. Just terrible. Why didn't they invert colors and make the surrounds black and the slats red so it would have at least had a chance of looking good like the GTE? Horrible decision to green light this single design element which ruins the entire package. I'd say, "The rest looks good," but I really can't look past the front end enough to do so.

It'd be nice if you could just order them from factory as the only set of wheels for your car

Very interesting easter egg in the video, BMW ///M CEO says that a new secret technology is being tested under the M8 Safety Car's hood
