Ok, c'mon....we can mod 335is to be faster than Ms....so we can, if we choose to, steal some panels (not badging ofcourse)....but an E46 has to be HIGHLY modded to get close to an E46 M3...

2006 330i  [0.00]
Here's the funny thing the people doing this ignore:

- People not in the know recognize BMW as a luxury brand, but don't have a clue what //M is. Period. You will impress them with a 325i or an M5. So the strtategy of impressing with a fake //M badge doesn't work with this group of people.

- People in the know are impressed by the //M badge, but this group recognize not only the brand but all the other performance elements - car dimensions, side gills, quad-exhausts, you name it. So the strategy here not only fails, it fires back. Instead of admiring, we are disgusted, angry, and lose respect for the faker.

Thank you!

I don't care if one wants to put the shift knob or steering wheel, or even M wheels on for that matter, as the M is the performance division of BMW. But don't re-badge as an M.

I think theres a member with the car you're referring to. He made his e92 into an e92 M3. If he's not a member here , I may have seen him on bimmerfest.

M isn't made for speed anyways. Let's see how well the 335 can hang with the m3 on the track. Don't know who the member is but I saw someone with a e92 335i with m3 conversion.. Basically everything without the m3 badge.. come on.. pure rice.

yeah, Ms are built to be slow as shit. fwiw, the dinan 335 held its own against the m3. on top of that, you inadvertently called the m3 rice

wtf are you talking about?

Stock for Stock, an M3 whoops the shit outta the E9x 335i...

on the track, it's even more beastly.....and wth are you talking about RICE??

All I'm saying is, if you like the M panels, go get them. I see members with the M3 skirts, the hood, mirrors....nothing wrong with that....just don't badge it as an M...that is fine w/ me...

wtf are you talking about..

stock for stock.. dude its a 60k vs a 40k car.. FWIW its not very fast..400$ mod will beat a m3..

what I am saying is whats the point of putting quad exhaust, m3 rear bumper, m3 front bumper, m3 side grill,trunk, side mirror,etc onto a 335 when in reality its just a 335 and then debadge the 335 thinking people would think its a m3... If people want the m3 look why not just buy one?
