It's great to see German cars competing in a genre ususally dominated by Japanese motors, particularly when it's something as raucous and high-tech as an E46-generation BMW M3. This Phoenix Yellow example is a fairly serious bit of kit too - you can see that the interior's been stripped out, sporting little more than Cobra buckets and a beefy rollcage (although the full dash and stereo has been retained - a little touch of civility to counterpoint the raw performance), and under the skin can be found HSD coilovers, uprated Brembos, a hydraulic handbrake, a Blue Flame exhaust, and all manner of chassis tweaks to get it sliding extravagantly. There's even a bonded-in carbon-fibre roof, which adds lots of extra cool points.
