Like the Japanese M3

Great fuel economy .A very subtle rear spoiler just in case downforce was an issueThat might be a long lost M1

Would this be classified as fake M?

It doesn't qualify

It does not have an m badge on the trunk lid .Some people like the clean look of a debadged car.Especially if it has a long word on the trunk.Like Xdrive for Bmw or 4matic on the Benz.That is in addition to the model on the other side of the trunk .

It does have a M badge on the trunk, there is one on the license plate holder.

It's not followed by a number indicating an M model.The cars with the m sport packages do have m on the sills,steering wheel,and the rims.I guess they figured some wanted the appearance without the engine.

I know it's a free world but I really don't get the point of posts like this, especially when the topic has been done to death in many other posts.

Just another excuse for someone who drives an M car, big deal, to show how "big" their dick is?

Are you joking? The point of posts like this is so everyone can enjoy hilarious fake M cars. There haven't really been any posted yet but some of the ones out there are pretty funny. Nobody's forcing you to look at them either.

To contribute, here's something ALMOST on topic:



Would you look at the size of that ass.....lol.

I've always taken the position most real M owners are confident enough with their cars and don't give a sh*t what non-M owners do. Did you start this thread because these misplaced M badges really bother you?

No badging is going to make a car a real M. You know what you have. You get to experience how special it is every day. I don't think M-sport packages with m badge dilute the importance of your fine automobile at all. Your car is still better, looks better, sounds better, and preforms better. I've got a 328 with factory M-sport package. Not once did I think, now I have a M car. I liked the look, it was factory stock, I liked the steering wheel, and I bought it. With absolute certainty I can tell you that true M cars did not become less important or less rare because BMW has chosen, brilliantly I think, to leverage the M brand. They are a car company and their job is to sell cars. As for the aftermarket M badge crowd, I would never do it myself but to each their own. They are not impressing anyone who knows and and those in the know are probably laughing and rolling their eyes.

Enjoy your great ride.

BMW figured right. They sell a lot of them, including the one they sold to me. I love the look of the car and I am not interested at all in the obscene power of an M3. There was a market need and BMW filled it.

BTW, BMW's been doing this for many years. I had a 2003 540i with M-Tech package. Looked very much like an M5 without the trunk spoiler and exhaust. It had a few m badges, but correctly no M5 badge anywhere.

All volume production manufacturers do this. If you want something truly rare, you are going to have to spend several times more than an M4 to get it.

You've missed the entire point of this thread, we're not talking about M-sport badging lol, that's both factory and inconspicuous.

This thread is about GERMAN RICE.

You are sort of right, but you would have to change the word jealous to respect. I respect true M cars as the best BMW has to offer. As much as I respect them, in no way am I jealous of those that own one. If I wanted a true M I would simply go buy one. I have no use for that much power, plain and simple. That is why the the M-sport package was a great choice for me. For those that want/need/have to have the power that a true M provides, good for them if they can afford to live their dream. I can be happy for them and respect their ride without being jealous.

Thanks for helping out.

It's pretty simple, there aren't many other reasons for people to get angry and type a paragraph over this topic.
