When I bought my 335, there was an M badge on the back. I am guessing the previous owner wanted everyone to know he had the M sport package. It looked completely dumb and the badge was also starting...

Nothing wrong with the 5 in my opinion, just nothing really great either. With the M Sport package, they do look better.

Much truth here.

My first BMW was an 07 530. I remember after having it for about a year, I was really getting used to it. Just seemed like a normal car to me after a while.

Agreed. The 3 has become what seems like the perfect sized car for a sporty daily driver. I am over 6 feet and the car does not feel small by any means.

Modding a leased car has always seemed like an odd decision to me. Customizing a car you don't own? I suppose if it is just wheels and you hold onto the stock wheels, you can sell the aftermarket...

Only the big fat guys wearing athletic clothing who drive slow cars that make a lot of noise and have blacked out "rims".
