Itís because itís a BMW.
Project J29, shared with project G29 (Z4).

Saying itís a Toyota is the same as saying the Yaris is a Toyota.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen an Audi with fake Sline badges.

Audi makes it easier. Itís used S and S-line in virtually every car and SUV, so all of them are some form of it.

Then AMG caught on, and then M did the same.

Appropriately posting this on page 228. Or should I say "///M228".

Southern California is one of the most populated places on earth where a car is mostly necessary (SoFla and NY/NJ are up there, but not really close). So more people driving/more cars/more nut cases/more fake badges. 🤣

This is true, but there's an elephant in the room which is taboo to discuss that could explain the rationale behind the badges.

You will not find a place with so many 'fake' people as SoCal.

Lol the M logo is so small compared to the X5 logo. If you’re going to add the fake M logo, go big or go home!

NY/NY is easy to survive without a car. There is lots of good public transportation.

You want to go to a place where you need a car? Try Houston. Next to zero public transportation. Also lots of BMW's and very few fake badges. Because people don't align their personality / status to their car like they do in SoCal. At least not as much.

Yeah, Houston is a good call, though I meant more - NY adjacent, like the people in NY/NJ that donít work in the city.
