okay so people used to be a "poser" by adding an M badge to a non-M car (that I get) but now if one was to remove the M badge (one of 24+ on the car) they are a "poser" too? Please explain - I'm not here to be argumentative I just don't understand the logic
By investing effort into adding or removing a badge, you're making a statement.

It's like people who won't wear brand name clothing because they dislike the image they think it presents. Instead they shop at second hand stores and garage sales, not out of necessity or thrift, but because they wish to present the opposite image. They act like they're above being concerned with what they wear, but ironically, they're also using clothing to present a specific image, just on the other side of the commercial spectrum. Their clothing selection is still motivated by concern over what others will see, instead of solely on what they enjoy or find comfortable.
