M4 vert??? Not.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I didn't get a pic but while I was traveling in Germany today I saw what I thought was a new M4 vert in Berlin. Prominent M badges everywhere. A pretty big one on the side. As it's pulling away I see it's actually a 420d. Wow. BMW really did sell out the ///M brand. M-Sport is fine but plastering ///M badges on all sides of a non Mx is just wrong IMO. :

I'm from Belgium where most people enjoy putting AMG and M badges on the absolutely entry-level models.

Haha, why on earth would you fake something like Nike? Gucci or Versace, that's understandable. But Nike? Lolz.

I don't understand why people do that. It's like lying about your income -->, you can only fake it until you are tested....

I agree with you, but the sad part is that everyone knows it's not a real M. As you probably know, real M cars in Europe are quite expensive. Not only to purchase, but also to insure and to pay road tax on. Don't even get started on the fuel prices. In order to stand out from the crowd, base models get purchased with M Kits on them. So they figure, it has an M Kit, why not just slap some M badges on there. Same with AMG. Bit harder to do with Audis though, as most of their owners tend to be somewhat understated.
