Did the previous owner put the M-power badge in the back?

Yes, not sure where it comes from.

I believe the M badging is a pride of ownership mind set. M owners understand this. It's not about snobbery, but about attaining the ultimate BMW for that particular model.

I agree with you (dragon). I am sorry my bimmer is not a "m" maybe one day i will be able to attain the ultimate BMW, but for now I will just pretend and enjoy the impression it gives. hey !! its just like women we sometimes dream of that Super model type but if we have one that looks good and can dress like a super model go for it and enjoy-- if you are lucky you might attain the supermodel if not hey- you came close. hahahah

I recommend Car & Driver January 2010 issue - Page 88 - comparison of super SUV's.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Really no idea what you are inferring, however.

How about a quick summary?

I provided a source of reference to refute your claim that there are tuned E53's out there that are quicker than a true X5M. Feel free to provide a source for a tuned E53 capable of clearing 60mph in less than 4 seconds flat (aside from E53 LM)...then we can debate.

If rebadging ones car with a performance oriented badge has nothing to do with performance...what does it have to do with? I have yet to see a true performance auto with badging of one with less performance.

I hope i am not breaking the rule by mentioning another car on this site but my cousin has a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo - this car is modified to the extreme. he cleans up the 1/4 mile in just over 11 sec. he uses it for racing. he took off the evo. badge, rear spoiler, and rims making it look like a sweet ordinary Lancer- grocery getter. well the plan is for a sleeper. His car is naasty. with no performance badges. so the badge is just what you like.

Real Sleepers are BAAAAAAAD! It's cool to see someone try to race one and get their doors blown off! :wow:
