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.

Wait a second- you provided a page number for a magazine..Were you expecting I would be able to find a back issue and actually be able to look at the article you referenced? ATLEAST give me a link.

Either way, it is completely beside the point. It seems as though you saw the word "disagree" and just couldn't take it.

First of all, car and driver hasn't tested more than a handful of e53's. To assume that, because a magazine says so, there are no heavily modified e53's (even with complete engine swaps) that could compete with an x5 M is just rediculous. That being said, my point had NOTHING to do with an e53 outperforming an x5m.

What I said was that no matter how fast the vehicle (even if it is faster than the real thing), if it doesn't say "M" from the factory, it shouldn't have an "M" badge, because its not an "M". So what it has to do with is misrepresentation of the vehicle, not performance. An "M" is a model line, not specifically a performance rating. Just because a heavily modified 335i could be faster than a stock M3, doesn't mean BMW should send the owner an M badge to stick on the car-thats just stupid.

If you are looking for a formalized debate, you've got the wrong venue. I hav better things to do then find a source that shows there is such thing as a sub 4.0 second 0-60 e53, though logic would suggest that it has been done. That litterally had nothing to do with my statement...

OK, having a "M" badge on my Bimmer has insighted another (discussion). Let me ruffle some more feathers -- Gottalovebimmer I love your bimmer its very clean and I love the 4.6/4.8 rear spoiler. would love to get some for my 4.4, however i would not want to mis-represent my 4.4 I am also thinking of getting the 4.8 cat back. Personally I dont need to do 0-60 in under 4 sec but i love the look and sound. Hey I live in NY there is not much roads for that anyway. Also thinking about the "M" steering wheel and 4.8 instrument cluster. are you thinking along that line too ?? notice that you dont have a side badge on good work --- KEEPS THEM GUESSING hahahah

BMW also put ///M badges on there m sport option for all BMW's. My BMW x5 3.0 m sport has got m badges on it but it is not an ///M, It's just the m sport option so BMW have done the same thing.

Are those 19's? :wow:

I have the same summer wheels but they look smaller. Maybe its because I'm used to my winter set now but wow those look so much bigger.
