Surprised me when I saw what the driver looked like tbh!

Wrong thread if no badges. I don’t see anything weird there.

Happy Friday.

Someone needs to ask the owner to let them see the amazing S85 V10 under the hood of their M645csi. I love how the M badge is almost twice the size of 645csi badge.

Beautiful e30 325…if didn’t have the unnecessary M badge. I’d love an e30 in this condition.

No visible badges, but definitely a lot weird going on there. Too lazy to start a thread "Bad M Replica Mods"

Absolute Aussiest M ever gem! Can you get this dude interviewed on the Today Show?

Saw this gem at my local Kohl's yesterday. The sad part is that a.) the vehicle looks great without the fake M badges, and b.) if the owner was to remove the stock badges and replace them with ///M's very few would even know.

The weird part of this "BMW Stolen Valor" is that the folks who know what a M car is also know when it's a fake. The people who have no idea what a M car is could care less.
Now don't get me started on BMW putting M badging on so many cars that are completely undeserving of the honor.

BMW sees it as increased performance through the use of ///M parts, which is accurate. Non-focused, slightly-focused, focused.

Not so much of a fake badge but moreso a shout out to the B58 Engine & BMW Engineering. This one brought me a smile...

I missed a pic of the back side, but I captured the front of this extremely rare single exhaust pipe M5! Sorry, but for now you can just enjoy the winged mirrors until I catch him again.

I do feel kinda power-ish having an M-Sport package on a 540i.

BMW leaves out the fender M badge for the M Package in the US, but keeps it on for the rest of the world.... does that mean if I add it back on the fender, it's "fake"???

what about the "M" door sill covers that came with the car? (although I'm the only one who see it when the door is opened, obviously)
