I'm glad I picked up a 2021 M40i vice the 2022 M40i for a couple of reasons, but one of them being the additional M badges and M mirrors. BMW is free to badge their cars however they want, and I guess with them putting them on it doesn't really qualify as fake badging, but I'd personally feel weird with the extra M badges. I guess that's weird in and of itself but there it is. My M40i has no additional badging on top of the M40i on the back.

There are people who think the "M Performance" editions are fake badges because they honestly don't know it's a thing. I have an M340i and have had base chargers or Scatpacks etc think i'm in some random BMW with an M badge I put on, they are surprised when we have a quick run. I actually like surprising people.

Agree, if your going to add it at least read up a little on the spacing.

There are a lot of fake badges in Europe..., At least so far in the 3 days I've been bouncing around Belgium and Luxembourg. It would almost be easier to count non M badged cars.

That said, they get a lot of cool models we don't get in the states like small hatchbacks and wagons.

It's the M Select 750iL, to give it its full due!

Is that even a real M badge? Can't tell if it's just reflections, but...

The 335 never had MP like the 235, only an M Sport trim and did not have any M badging.
