My 750Li has the M-Exhaust, “sport” transmission, “M-Package” ..My door sills proudly display the lighted text of “M-Performance” but I feel it’s out of place. I do love the look but,I’m of the belief that only true M-Series vehicles should have M branding anywhere,even if the non-M vehicle contains M branded parts from the factory. There is no M badge on the rear of my vehicle,and there never will be.

I don’t hate on those that choose to put an M on their vehicle,generally you can tell it’s not an M and have myself a little chuckle.

Personally, I like everything debaged including m badges I like it declutter I don’t need to know that my car is an M with an x drive with the engine size just stupid my 2022 vermillion edition x5 with frozen black metallic came from factory debaged when I called and ask them to take all badges off they said you will like this did not come with any I said amazing 🤩

Looks like he's poking fun at himself and his economy sh!t box, I'm okay with that.
Sort of like a Kia with a Lambo badge.

To his credit as well, that looks to be a really well maintained car... no "Camry dents" and on proper winter tires to boot.

Couldn't get the shot but it didn't have BMW wheels so not being a X5 history buff I couldn't tell. If nothing else they suck at up keep.

He really wanted a tundra, but had to settle for his girls corolla

At least it's still in the Toyota family

If you have time, listen to the interview afterwards , "the car took off, and never worked again"

I'm starting to wonder if people put M badges on their cars because it amuses them to know that there are people who will keep a thread like this going after 235 pages of monotonous sameness.

Are you one of them?!

BMW “M lite”, which means the owner is justified in having the plate frame.

I doubt they think about others at all.

well, my local dealer gives this M plate frame out a gift to everyone who purchases anything M related so M340, M550 to full M5C M8.... so it looks fine, at least to me.

Also, this person's X6 M50i is more expensive than a few actual M series out there.
