Why is this car so perfect?

I know we have all seen it. But to me it's E34 perfection and I'm not exactly sure why, of the hundreds of cars I've seen this one always makes me look a little longer. Is it the flawless paint? The perfect drop and fitment? Why is this car so beautiful?

Its always the things you see but don't register. No dust in corners; equal panel fit; no polisher marks all over it - the things you see without seeing........ Nice shape too...

Either the rims are too big, or the car is too lowered. The rear shocks should also be an inch or too higher than the front to complete the subtle but more aggressive stance.

But who cares !!! It looks spectacular. Brings out the poet in ya

I agree. That is exactly how I'd like mine to look. Maybe someday...

Since the OP mentioned it, that glass smooth, wet looking finish is probably not factory original, though the picture may be enhanced. Any factory German car from the 90's will have a fair amount of orange peel by design, BMW, Porsche, M-B, etc. A super glossy, mirror-like finish is not original to our cars.

I've always fapped over that car. IT is so perfect and looks like excellent attention has been payed to the details, it really does prove that less it more. It look like every single inch of that caar had been gone over with a fine tooth comb. But that picture has definatley been enhanced. Maybe its just the lighting lol.
