When i got my plate surround i actually debated this lol

Even tho the m perf carbon one was more expensive and premium i just went with the black "M\\" one

Small correction... It's ///M as opposed to M\\ Or, if you got M\\ I'm thinking you got a Chinese knockoff.

This, combined with that disgusting front end on the G8X, will mean that I will likely never buy another new BMW. Glad that I have one of the last truly special M3's - it better last forever.

I am 100% with you! This f80 m3 might be my last. So many M brands on everything has ruined it and the new look is just disgusting, breaks my heart
So I know what you mean… however when I got my m235 I was super excited about getting a lite variant of an M. Now that I moved to an M2C, the shoe is on the other foot and I see how it does make the M branding less special.

As cool and fun as they are, the lite versions that BMW make are definitely not in the same camp as proper Ms. from the same or even recent generations.

I am less likely to buy a future M or any BMW due to the current trend of uglification than I am due to ///M diluted cars.

I actually drive a X3 M40i and never considered it a M car.
But...I find it closer to the M3 G80 I test drove than any other "base" BMW.

I like the M3 and so, I've ordered one.
I've always debadged all my cars and I don't care about this ego-M-shit.
I drive what I like to drive. The M3 could be called the 350i, I don't care.
