The sport package X3 has M stickers and tricolor theme all over it from the factory -- wheels, steering wheel, door sills, maybe elsewhere. In the UK at least, the public (if not BMW) calls that model the "M Sport" (see my sig). So even if an "M Sport" is not an "M3," "M5," or "M6" (which have serious performance upgrades), it's not surprising that some X3 owners choose to stick another M on the hatch. Hey, the BMW marketing department gave them permission!
