They aspire to own a M, or what they think is an M, at least that's the optimist / positive way of looking at it. vs. just saying they are trying the trick the world and/or posers...

the "m" is for money...

meaning -> that's how you feel when purchasing a high-priced badge off eBay and place it on previously relevant cars.

why try and convince a community of individuals (some of which know the exterior of a BMW more intimately than their wives) your car is something other than the model you purchased?

Be a man, grab some fishing wire, de-badge that shit, and appreciate you own a BMW.

In other news, just bought a ferrari f430....replaced the 30 with 58

technically not a badge, but the bracket is big enough of a sin.

I can't see the picture clearly. The guy put a X5M badge on his X3? That doesn't even make sense

There is a new Hyundai elantra in my area that I see and from time to time and the guy has Mercedes emblems on the hood and trunk with dark tint it is hilarious. I would love to catch him at a light so I can ask him about his 1 of a kind MB.

Makes you wonder how many used "M" vehicles have been sold to oblivious customers thinking they have the real thing.

That car is so fast you'll freak!

I know it's fake, ffs. I'm just saying that maybe he was deceived by a dealer or something like that. We all know BMW hails M Sport as some sort of amazing invention.

Here is the reality of putting these badges on your BMW:

1) Those who don't know what an ///M badge means, don't give a crap
2) Those who know what an ///M badge means, know you're not driving one.

Result: You're not fooling anyone but yourself.
