BMW Motorsport badges are meaningless to most people other than car enthusiasts (who recognize a real ///M when they see one). So who do the poseurs think they’re impressing with bogus ///M badges glued onto their ordinary 3-Series cars? It’s quite pathetic really…

Ahem - some may consider M Sport badges on a non M car to be in the same category...

I see them daily on the A12 in Essex. Sometimes I drive alongside sneering hoping they get the message. It is very sad and is usually driven by some chav guy...

Right now he represents the pinnacle of clownage.
He is, I think, hereby crowned king of clownage.
Unless someone can find better, of course....
