    New age M powered BMWs

    With BMW sticking a M badge on everything and watering the icon down, now they are to have M powered diesels I feel they have killed the M cars off, they were once the ultimate BMW with cutting edge parts to make them faster and sharper, it's all been diluted so much now that the M is little more than a badge, the M3 CSL is what or even the bench Mark all M cars should be.

    They are like the M535 thought aren't they? Just the top of that particular range.

    They haven't started calling normal cars M3 ect.

    Not sure why there shouldn't be a proper M car doozil powered anyway, the M550d looks pretty special tbh........

    and right there lies the problem in a nutshell!! and what faceless BMW marketing computers in suites have figured out already, that thet can sell any old thing these days off the back of a past heritage and M glory to a typical and average car owning monkey, who just likes the thought of an M car on his drive to impress the typical monkey neighbours that live next door..

    I am pretty sure the vast majority of new BMW M3 and M5 car buyers don't buy them because of the "M" badge past history......

    Not sure if even the half way M cars are not special, they still have more power and "sportyer" looks than the others in the range.

    You can't just keep making E30's and E46 M3's because the people who buy new M cars don't want that.
    You haven't bought a car, let alone a new BMW in the last 10 years so BMW arn't going to make a car to suit you

    the whole point of an M car is that it has its basic foundation and genetics is based in the performance and racing M division cars...and the fact that no sludger engined BMW car has ever set a competition or racing series on fire ever, or that they have ever made one and gone racing with it in the first place, makes a diesel M car a marketing excersise and an M joke...

    i aint saying what they have done is wrong im saying itsa joke compared to their previous M products and shouldn't be denoted as M cars at all cos they aint M cars they are marketed imposters...

    same thing marketing fakes and imposters being sold off the backs of M cars, which just makes a joke out of summat that was once a legendary entity...
