just like if you are a car person you will know that bmw now makes M performance models like mentioned in the thread
This is what I've always found funny about people badging their cars. The average person doesn't care that that ML 350 is an AMG. They don't even realize the difference. The only person who would knows that an ML 350 isn't an AMG.

This will play the same way. The average driver is either going to see those Ms and not think twice, or more likely not even notice them. Those with the real M are going to ignore them as well. What's the point?

You buy an M for the performance, not the badge or the body parts.
