Driving on the A406 today and saw a fake e39 M5. Basically, it was a completely stock 5 series with an M5 badge stuck on the back (in the wrong place also).

Grrrr...

Rant over.

I hate them to the point where I think they should be crushed and the driver forced to drive a Lada for the rest of his life :thumbsup

I agree that m kits, wheels etc. look good on non m cars. For example I love csl bootlids on any e46.

I was annoyed that he put the badge on.

Yes. A neighbour gets visitors with an e46 330 and its a really nice car spoiled by the M badges

And its just the M as well, like loads of folk seem to have, not even M3 hes got on it.

AFAIK the only bmw to come out the factory with just a single M badge is the e28 M535 so...

I don't think there is much in the world that I hate more...

My mate was seriously looking at buying an e92 320d with 100k miles on it, no idrive or any real optional extras but was fully turned into a rep m3, for just shy of 16k! It looked gorgeous but I think that look would soon be ruined by the cloud of black smoke, the car not really moving and the sound of a tractor. We almost fell out over it lol. The thing that makes it worse is the fact he currently drives a very nice e46 330i convertible.

The rule for me is to have a M badge it must have a S coded engine, BMW stick M badges on cars because they got a few M goodies, well thats bollocks, it needs the engine to make it an M and then the other bits that go with the package.

330Ci's with m3 side grilles. They're annoying (and glued on). Simples.

An M car is more than a badge, if it makes you happy putting a M5 badge on your 520 then is tells a lot about you

A few years ago I drove past a old style ford mondeo with a M badge on it didn't laugh much
And no BMW should have a M badge on it unless it is a M car
