...Looks like the "mislabelling" has already begun. In January's issue of Autocar UK, the front page lists the new ///M 550d as "BMW's new diesel M5". So wrong in many ways, it's not a "M5". Soon everyone is going to bunch all ///M cars as one regardless if it's M Performance or true ///M. This goes beyond "it's just a badge" argument.
