I am someone who likes to de-badge cars; Shit if I could find painted fill pieces to remove the BMW logos on the car I would. I also bought it for the chassis and would prefer not to show off.

That being said people who put M badges on cars might be smart. Most people in the world couldn't tell you the difference between real and a badge unless you pointed out all the specifics. And most could care less about it.

What does matter to them is the badge/name and showing off that they can afford or afford to lease the car. And if they can do that and spend much less doing it then arn't they winning? A small group actually use the enthusiast car for what it should (many on this forum) but the big chunk use it as a status piece.

So Of course you expect people who pay full price to be mad when people pay much less to achieve the same effect.
