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 do not see anything wrong with the M badges....

BMW M, also known as M-Technik or just "M" (for Motorsport) was initially created to facilitate BMW’s racing program. It should be noted however that the Z3/Z4-based M Roadster and M Coupe bore numberless "M" badges as standard fitment.

For example, the E28 M535i featured suspension, styling, and transmission improvements over the standard 535i. These changes were carried out by BMW Motorsport, thus the car carried "M" stripe badges on the front grille and boot, but not the full "M5" badging. The E28 M5 was sold alongside the M535i. Motorsport modifications have been made to almost every BMW model, hence it is not unusual to see "standard" BMW's with "M" badges.

The opposite occurred with the 850CSi, an M car in all but name; it had a BMW M–sourced engine and its VIN indicated that it was developed by BMW Motorsport, like all other M cars. It was possible that a true M8 was in development; however, this M8 was cancelled for reasons known only to BMW.

The M635csi also went against this ethos as it followed the M535i naming tradition but was a fully fledged M-Car.

Hey 1989,

Yes you are right, as the plate reads, this is my car (not a fake M though.... posting in this thread could be misleading lol!!)!! Thanks for your kind words and I look forward to connect with you at a future meet.
Take care.

I usually pull up to posers and laugh in their face; maybe that'll make it sink into their head that they're dumb asses

A lot of people here seem to be worked up by what others do to their cars. Yeah, it's tasteless, but they're not hurting anyone other than themselves.

Hey I drive a 335 and am happy with that moniker. I wouldnt be caught dead with a M badge on my ride. Personally I think its embarrasing. Wait till you can afford it and then be pround to display it. I went from a 325xi sedan to a 335xi coupe. And am damn proud that I was able to afford the upgrade. Next step M....from my mouth to gods ears LOL

I put the /M from my '95 M3 on the back of my wife's AWD Sienna as a joke. "Fastest van in the carpool line" etc. It helps it get along with its siblings in the garage, and the guys at the Toyota dealer like it. The BMW dealer not so much... Some folks are humorless.
