I saw a 5 series with an "M" badge here in SLC a few months back. My first thought was WTF? Second was, what a loser!

What's wrong with the ///M License plate bracket?! Lots of BMW's have the ///M logo. The ZHP steering wheel in the e46 for example...

Doesnt the M badge give you extra 200 horsepower? Or does the badge make the car lighter? =)

Saw one last night on Rte 17 traveling South: AW e90 328 with some mods: (I think) blacklines, rims, tints, may be the aerokit, etc ... The car actually looked great until I noticed the ///M badge on the rear!!!!!
Like you Monsta, I wonder what they thought when I passed them?!?

Very sad... but if it makes them happy... at the end of the day: good for them, and it gives us a chance to laugh a little.

I saw a silver X5 (previous generation) with at least three M badges on it--one on the hood replacing the Roundel, and two on the fenders where the M cars have their vents. This is complemented with an aftermarket (read: poor fitting) aero kit, wheel arches, and dubs.

The icing on the cake is that he (I am assuming the owner is a he... the car was parked when I saw it) had (probably fake) German plates on the car, partially covered by NYS plates. Never mind that ED temp plates are not the same as regular EU plates, and that you can't do ED with an X5.

Who is he trying to fool???

Too bad my cell phone pictures were too horrible to post.
