The M-badge is being diluted... what's the big deal?
Serioulsy if you think that most M buyers buy their car for the track you are totally wrong! Most of them suit up on Monday get in their car and get stuck in the traffic to go to work... That's reality!
I mean if you are a real purist and enthusiast of BMW mechanic you shouldn't care about if your car as an M badge on it or not and you should care less about the M badge being diluted...
If you need the M badge to feel right about your M3 you are the real poser here!
Now stop whining get on track and enjoy the pleasure of driving your BMW!
