    V8 already sound so good and fierce. Are you sure there is a need to fake it? So fake to what? V10 or V12?

    IMO these people may not be trying to pose off as M. If they spend so much money on the car already and want to make it look more swee or sart, nothing wrong if they can afford that little bit more. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

    It is not comparable to fake LV etc if they are using original M kits? And definitely not wannabes if they are not using original M kits! Just wan to make their ride look better.

    True and I agree with you.
    Anyway, Original M Tech Kits or M Aero Kit from Manufacturer does not make the car look like an M3 and M5. It is totally different. Only people who are not knowledgeable cannot differentiate between a M Kit or a Fake M3 or M5 kit.

    I am not a fan of modifications to make a car to look exactly or very close to a higher performance variant BUT I usually keep such comments to myself. It is the freedom of the car owner to do what he/she likes, its their money. BTW my E90 is on the Original M Aero Kit MADE for normal E90s and if anyone says or thinks that I am trying to make my car look like M3, I can only say, the person making such comments is an unknowledgeable person on BMWs.

    What if... chassis, bumper, side skirt, bonnet, truck, fenders, doors are non-M plus debadged while internal is a M such as engine swap, injector swap, throttle body swap, suspension swap, axle swap, gearbox swap, drive train swap, differential swap, cooling system swap, fuel pump swap, exhaust swap, etc etc swap plus a ///M badge... is it still trying to bluff people a non-M is a M car?

    M-kit or mod like M cars are alright. Mod for visual appeal.

    Putting the M badge is a different thing. Element of deception.

    Similarly, putting a higher-cc badge on the car is a no-no. E46 days someone with a 320i told me he lost the "3". I gave mine (I debaged my ride) to him. The following week, his ride became a "330i".....

    Nabey eh turban.

    Re: Bluff M3 & M5

    My dream is to someday be rich enough (like toto) to buy a Lamborghini, but I'll retro-fit everything to make it look like a Sonata Taxi cab. Then, I will chiet everybody at the traffic lights and they'll curse and swear that an Unker Taxi smoked them.
