I am now in my forth ///M3 and made up my mind it will be my last ///M3
You might ask why, well I once loved this car and mind you I still do as long as I will be driving the one I now have. However, once I am ready to change it will no longer be a ///M3 or ///M4 as they will be called since I only drive a coupe as my second car. While I not always agree with Jeramy Clarkson, I do agree what he had to say here at the end of the BMW M135 Review.
The review if you missed it (a good one BTW) can be found here ---> Click here if you have not seen the JC Review
Here is what he said about the ///M Badge and I Quote ...
One thing, though. I do wish BMW would reserve that M badge for cars that have come from its motor sport division, rather than sticking it on anything thatís a bit faster than usual. The M135i may say M on the back. But if you look underneath, thereís no limited-slip diff, so it isnít an M car, really. Unless the M here stands for marketing.
End of JC Quote ...
I know most of you feel about the same as far as the miss-use of the ///M badge goes ... makes me look (in a few years) at Porsche or Benz for my next toy.
