    M used to mean something though.. my old e46 M3s were made at the Regensburg BMW M gmbh factory in Germany whereas my old nonM cars were made like any other boring BMW in North Carolina. BMW M gmbh was its own division and department. Now "X5Ms" and what not are just assembled in North Carolina and nothing means fuckall anymore. (notably the e34 M5 engines were the last engines that were hand assembled at the BMW M factories)

      You also need to look at the total package of these performance lines. Yeah, most don't have much motor performance gain, but for that $2,000 more, you get more than just sportier looks and a small bump in HP. Most will also throw in other options that would otherwise cost extra like blind spot warning, collision sensors, backup camera, upgraded infotainment, etc. All in all, most aren't a bad deal at all, you still get what you pay for.

                  I wish Honda would bring back the SiR-T, as well. It was just a step below the Type-R and was applied to the Accord and Prelude and included improved suspension, better brakes and a very, very sweet high-compression high rev engine.

                      The greatest badge has to be the "GT" that goes after my Mustang. All of the other cars in the video are crap and slow and overrated and overhyped. My Mustang would even smoke many of the race cars featured in the video. Hell, my old 300C would smoke them.

                        Actually a m235i has More horsepower than the other Models and is the second strongest. And Audis S line is just a Badge That says its better equiped. Kind of a „superior“ line.

                                Totally agree, nothing gets me laughing more then to see BMW M’s and Audi S line car’s posing on the road. It’s literally nothing more the an appearance package.

                                It’s about as dumb as seeing idiot toyoata drivers in the Carola “S”, like I here people acting like it’s some sports car, such a joke.

                                                Are we not gonna talk about TRD? Almost every toyota has a TRD version with fake quad exhaust, different wheels and suspension, riced out wings, and absolutely no added power or torque. Worked as a Toyota sales man and this was super cringe. I do have to hand it to the TRD 86 though for being sick af

                                                      With BMWs, "M Sport" and "M Performance" mean different things. M Sport is just a trim level with sportier styling, firmer suspension and better brakes, whereas M Performance cars are pretty fast while still being comfortable enough to daily. The new G20 M340i for example is quite close in performance to the F80 M3.

Just because an Audi has the s line trim level or the merc has the amg line package doesnt give you the rs/s badge on the car from Audi, and neither do you get an Amg badge On the mercs with just the amg line trim level.

                                                                                    2. Quattro is Audi’s 4 wheel drive system and the same thing with the 4matic system in mercs

                                                                                    3. If you can call a bmw m235i a scam, you are a jerk. The 235i is not as much an m car like an m2, but with only 45 more horsepower’s 40 more torque, you can’t compare it with the amg line to the fully blooded amg’s. You are actually getting what you paid for and a lot more I you compare the prices and specs with the m235i and m2.
