This is one of the coolest ideas I've heard of in a long while. If you were a woman, I would marry you.

keeping the BMW livery would make sense I think, it looks like what BMW was using until 2009 in F1, also this car is present in a few PC games/sims (LFS, GTR Evo)

Seems strange to make an absurdly expensive product and then put such (comparatively) tiny 23 inch screens to go with it.
Even the setup I'm building on the cheap will have bigger than that.

And might I just add, if the screens were big enough to be able to go more forward in front of the car, then they'd be low
enough that the driver doesnt have to look UP into the sky to see the horizon in the game.
The horizon in the game should be just above the steering wheel.
