Also, fast, diesel, awd wagons= major win.
Hardly. I don't think any one here has a problem with that since those ///M "upgrades" are for aesthetic purposes only and we still consider those for the model that it is. Now with the new ///M Performance line, people are going to start calling these models "///M" models when they're really not. Example, go see Autocar UK's front page of their January issue, they're calling the ///M 550d "BMW's diesel M5" which is wrong and that's
the problem, calling it something it really isn't and people are going to start running with that.
