That X5 with an M badge on the left is perfectly acceptable. Doesn't mean that the driver pretends to own an M model, it just means that the vehicle has got the Motorsport suspension. If you tick that option on the order form your car will appear with the M badge on the rear.

Which?
Maybe in Spain (with the M badging on non-M X5 models), but I don't think that's the case here in the US. In fact, the M Sport model doesn't even come with different suspension than the base - you get a body kit, exhaust tips, a fat steering wheel, and maybe door sills. Looks better, but in no way is it anything Motorsport. And that Alpha-GC loser in the black X5 doesn't even have the upsized 275/315 wheels, he has the narrow/touring 19s.

I didn't get a chance to snap pics, but this dude decided to park his E46 328i with An M3 badge right next to my E90 M in a virtually empty parking lot. If you're gonna try faking it, why would you decide to park RIGHT NEXT to the real thing. A real SMH moment haha. Pics of my car for reference

No. The /M only goes on the trunk if it's a real M. All of the performance editions only get badges everywhere else (unless things have changed very recently).

Love this thread.

The thing I find funny, is there are people who take base level E36s, E46s, E92s, and take them far beyond what the M3 version is. In terms of horsepower and performance, I mean take all the drift cars in Formula Drift.

But even they don't claim to be a M3.

That's a new one... they took an oversized eBay M badge, then debadged the "28i" and stuck the M badge next to the leftover "3".. and left with a very large M next to a little 3. solid!
