Doesn't bother me personally. People's egos are too attached to a logo on the new models.


I can't think of a way to phrase it but if you know the Motorsport Division history then you'll know. If you think an M550i is an M5 you probably/most likely know nothing about the brand.

BMW is definetly marketing to a different crowd having these type of M variants. They must've found this thread awhile ago and realized most of the population doesn't give a hoot About what an a true M car is and just slaps on an M to a regular non M so most people feel as though they're getting way more car then they would be otherwise..

I wanted to have words with the dude but something told me he most likely wouldn't have understood anything I said to him anyway.

So serious question, if you're retrofitting the f30 bbk on an iS what are the thoughts on keeping the ///M? I have the phoenix yellow calipers going on black as it is now..

Isn't the M on the calipers standard even on cars with the M Sport package?
