If you're going to put a fake "M" badge on your car, at least learn where it should go! In the case of the X's, it's an X3 M, not MX3.

Or maybe this guy really wants to be driving a mid '90's Mazda....

Not only are you good with your badging choice, I'm a bit jealous to be honest. I got to do BMW M track day at Sonoma last year and did 8 laps in the M5. All that power and handling is lost on my for day-to-day driving, but I still have a smile painted on my face after that experience. What a ride!

The fact that these badges are real somehow makes things worse than if someone had just slapped these fake badges on their corolla...

Toyota Corolla "Nurburgring Special Edition"..... with a vicious 1.8L I4 churning out a ball slapping 138 hp. Mated to a beastly CVT and powering the front wheels. And all the Nurburgring badging to make sure everyone knows what you're packing.

I mean, first thing that comes to mind when I think of the Nurburgring is a Toyota Corolla.

But, I guess it makes sense..

Yeah I mean.... I wouldn't mock it quite so heavily if they added an intake/tune/exhaust and dropped a proper transmission into it. But it's so typical of Toyota to do nothing other than a few suspension tweaks, slap some badges on it, and call it a special edition.

It might not be a BMW, but I did find a rare C300 AMG in the wild.

If you all think the US has a badge problem, wait until you visit Italy. I saw 4 fake badged //M cars to a single real one during my visit

I think the other reality is that some people have their non-M cars tuned, sometimes to similar power levels as real M cars and think that means they can justifiably put an M badge on their car. Despite disagreeing with the principle regardless, most people don't understand that 'M' is more than just a power upgrade anyway.

Isn't BMW guilty of this as well?
