Your statement doesn't really make sense. How can debadging create a real M car for people who can't afford it?

I'm pretty sure you meant to say: "Isn't that for people who make put the M-look on their regular 5'er but debadge the 5XX badge so people think it's an M5."

Either way, No. It's for guys who don't need people to know it's an M5 and just want the car for the car and not for the flash factor. (As if it had any flash...)

Badge delete because I don't care much for labels, people who know enough about cars will recognize that it is an M5. I don't feel the need to show off. Plus I think it cleans up the rear of the car, less features that break up the end of it, giving it a somewhat wider-ish look.

Added benefit is that when I take this car to Paris haters will just think it is a taxi rather than scold it for being a gas guzzler. (Not really an issue for USA.)

It is for discretion.

You can always just buy the emblem and slap it on there later on though...
