Fake //M's out in the wild

I really just want to walk up to people that do this and look at them and just say "why".

I saw the first picture and thought, okay, this guy just bought the badge and thew it on... but he seriously went the whole 9 yards and put on 220M wheels and replaced the panel with a vented one... and it's not even a 335... sheesh.

No, but it is a source of amusement. Again, however...what's the point? Those who know cars will know its fake, those who don't won't care.

I suppose there is a miniscule amount of the public that recognizes "M3" as something special, but doesn't know enough to distinguish real from fake.

I wanted to just tell the owner "nice M3" since I had my 328 out that day it would have been interesting to see their response.

Isn't that an M roadster? Looks like quad exhausts to me.

i didnt get to see any other angle but honestly it didnt look like a bmw at all. i could be mistaken though. it looked like a jdm car.

upon further review, it may be a roadster.



guess i didnt notice the high resting roundel at night haha

Who gives a shit? Imitation is the biggest form of flattery. If these peeps wish their cars were M's let em badge it up. Besides, doesn't the M badge add like 80HP to the wheel?!?

Owner should go back to dealer and tell them he would like the two missing tail pipes to his "M3" that he bought.

Someone thought I had a fake M3 because "M3s only come with 2 doors"

There's hope for all that aren't amused by others slapping ///M3 badges on their non ///M cars. Next year the fake M cars currently adorned with ///M3 badges will be "upgraded" to ///M4 badges.
