Intro aside, I have a question on M emblems. Why do some people take their genuine M3 emblem off and put on just a "M" emblem?

I read cars without a number following the M are not "full M" cars.

Maybe people just want others to think their cars are not as powerful so they can PWN them? lol.
You had an M3. And I think you've got it backwards, models with the "M" following the numerical designation are "M-ified" so to speak. With some M components, mostly cosmetic.

I, personally, would never remove the "3" from the M3 as it's iconic.
