It is really a shame and it is not fair with ///M owners .BMW should not do this,but it is a normal precedure,that go back many years,badging
with the ///M pratically almost all the models,you can find M badges in some E-3O models,
E-36 Compact etc etc One thing is if the owners buy ///M badge to install on their models,another thing is that the factory make copy ,hopefully for them they are right,they are certainly wrong
for the M owners that they will feel a little "Betrayed"
this is my opinion
ps;sorry for my poor english
: I think that this is sort of a bummer, as it blurs the M distinction and brand image quite a bit. I thought that M was a more cherished and protected image that it apparently is.
: What does the board think of this. I am thinking of sending a letter ... am I out of line?
