There's another M stamped on the underside of one of the canisters on the M Performance exhaust too.

As others have mentioned, all of the suspension components (control arms, toe links, lower links, A-arms, etc) have at least one M stamp on them as well.

You should definitely replace your valve stem caps... then it'll be just right.

You're spending too much time counting ///M's when you should be driving instead.

Would you still pay so much if you purchase one in say Canada or Germany, leave it here for a few years and spend a nice vacation up here or in Europe then ship it home to your sweet home down under?

Ever investigate something like this? Just a thought I will be purchasing a used one in Germany then park it at a family members house for yearly vacation trips. To rent a M3 in Germany is quite costly as it is in Canada.

I don't care for the ///M badges on non M cars, but kind of dig that the M's have stamped parts where nobody can see them. It's like having a separate company redo a regular 3 series and they marked everything they changed.

Agree. The worst part is that even people that drive 328i think they have an ///M car. I don't really like what they are doing to the M brand.
