Man, I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the ///M and AMG meetings when the engineers were told that some of these cars were going to be badged like this. Just goes to show, even in some of the best jobs, you still have to eventually accept that someone else is the boss and their decision is how it's going to be, regardless of how much you disagree.

Fans like us care, but I can only imagine how frustrating it is for some of them, especially the old timers.

To the ///M engineers' credit, when given a directive (that they probably disagreed with), they go to work and make a fat pig like the X6 actually perform like an M.
