Can't be many of those around anymore. Good spot though the M cars of old were somewhat more subtle even with a genuine M badge.

Oh it’s not an M5, just an M535i!

Back in the 80's that would have been anything but subtle, M cars are still pretty much as they were, slightly more pumped up than there humdrum counterparts that's all.

I used to love the E30 325i Sport M-Tec and they still look well today. Can't say the same for the Peugeot 205 GTI. Very powerful looks in the late 80's, now they look weak and feeble.

Knew I'd seen one in the flesh before. 2012 Motorshow, on the BMW Car Club stand alongside exotica like the E9 'batmobile'.
