Audi is the only company that got it correct.

You have:
A5
S5
RS5

Keeps it all nice, tidy and clearly defined.

Merc & BMW... AMG(ish) M(ish)... rubbish.

Completely understandable.

Nice! Will there be an M badge removal option? You wouldn't want to be seen by others with all of the fake M badges on a 340! 😣

Relax. The only entity that decides whether a car is an M car or not is BMW. Any car with prefatory 'M' in its name is an M car. If you don't like it, go and complain to BMW

Some M performance cars are much more expensive than M cars (m850i is more expensive than M3, M4 and the same price as M5 competition), so it is not a matter of affordability, it is what suits your need. M3 and M4 are much commoner than m240i

You would sure be hurt if you bought your 'full M car' because of exclusivity (badge whoring) rather than performance.

Excluding the two idiots, car looks pretty cool in BSM, could do without the ever embarrassing fake "M".

Why is there so much hatred towards M Performance badging? Just like everyone else BMW has to stretch their brands to make money. There's nothing wrong with that. And the hierarchy of the brand is clear. So if you are a beemer fan then you know where each one stands. No need for all the hatred! :

The M340i will put out 382hp. No threat to the 425hp the current M3/M4 puts out. But itís impressive non the less. I almost went with a 540i xdrive over the M4. It can still do 0-60 in 4.7 sec and itís loaded with tech and luxury. Itís bigger and more comfortable. And the ambient lighting is so sweet. So ya, like others said it comes down to preference. BMW makes great cars, Iím glad itís hard to choose.

I think the m850 has been in most of the commercials. Where do you draw the line right?

M town probably has a special neighborhood in it just for M with a single digit. And this gated area of that neighhood for just competition package. And inside that gated section is a cul de sac for the competition sport people.

The interior of the current generation 3 series is far superior to the outgoing model. I sat in both the current M4 (few) and a new 320d today. The interior of the M4 looks quite dated compared to the new 320d

I would probably find it difficult to buy a brand new M3/M4 now because of the above (the interiors do not feel new anymore) except they are heavily discounted. I would take a pre-registered or slightly used M3/M4 however.

Alternate title for this commercial was "How to
Pay M prices for a non-M" 😜

In all seriousness though, if you need to convince someone (or yourself) that what you're driving is something that it isn't, then you have real issues beyond automobiles.

I love my M3 to death, but totally get the person who loves their 320 just the same. Drive what YOU like and don't worry about others...
