I suspected it was rebadged! I wasn't unaware that BMW actually produces M7....it's still a rumor!

That's embarrassing - to us who own 750 MSports. What a poser.

Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches
This very topic was discussed here at great length a few months ago. As far as I know, BMW does not produce an M7. However, it is a fact that some people are not hesitant in the least to proclaim their vehicles as something it isn't. [To this point, I've even seen a FIAT with a Ferrari badge.] I wouldn't. In fact, my feeling on this issue is the more fool them; but it's a free country after all.

What's in a name (or badge in this case)?

What about the official Ferrari powered BMW? http://www.autoevolution.com/news/bm...011-21726.html I didn't put a Ferrari badge on my BMW - darn.

Nice car as is, but only a tool would do it, at least he inflates his ego to his friends.

This.

Another blue one here.

Worse was the white 5 series I saw in the service bay a couple weeks ago that had M badges all over it.

Not sure who you're fooling (or why you're trying) when the real M5 was sitting just a few feet away in the showroom.

For cryin' out loud. If you are going to do that, you should at least get a B7 and stick the M badges on that.

ETA: Oh, what I would give to pull up at a stoplight next to that guy...
