I'm not versed enough on older BMWs to know what's wrong with that picture. Is it the M badge?

For one thing, it's not an ///M car. For another, it's not a 335.

The second 3 looks misaligned to me, so I'd guess 325.

It looks to be either a 325i or 330i sedan from 2002 to 2005.

I guess this is what you'd call a hybrid vehicle.

I wonder if the guy driving it did this or if he bought it this way not knowing it wasn't a 335 //M?

The body colored trim piece above the license plate would indicate it's a 330i. A 325i would have a black trim piece.

That one I can appreciate Poor guy...one day he'll need a new plate if he ever decides to go through with the upgrade.

As for the original post - It's missing the giant spoiler and chrome exhaust vents but I guess it'll pass for a GTS M model

After a quick license-plate check I can see that it's actually a 320i

There's a great thread about fake badges on the M board. There are some great shots there...very amusing!

Yeah. My first BMW was a 2001 E46 325i, mixed UK/Dutch spec, and it had rear sensors as standard. Didn't stop me reversing into something within a couple of months though
