Is it just my Sunday morning eyes, or is that bonnet not fitted well? It looks like the right hand side of the grill is lower than the left, that would drive me MAD! OCD would ave me doing backflips...

EDIT: The coffee has kicked in, it's just the shadow giving the illusion, doh!

Are you talking about in the last picture? Its just the shadow. Cover the shadows with a piece of paper and youll see that it is indeed level

In this Photo it looks like one of the cars on the cartoon "CARS" with a big smile!
I think the Brits call the hoods 'bonnets'.

Looks like a stock E46 M3 bonnet with the standard power dome bump since the E30 M3s were introduced.

Exactly correct. Standard fare on all E46 M3's and it will not fit the non-M sedan. Not sure about the regular coupe.
