Yes, you read that right. BMW has officially announced that M now stands for Marketing. To be fair this might not be as bad as the M bicycle they rolled out a few years ago. Read on for more exciting M performance enhancing features of the new license plate frame.

  • This REAL Carbon Fiber license plate frame is hand-finished and hand-cured.
  • Sealed in automotive grade UV-resistant polyurethane to prevent yellowing.
  • Extremely strong and lightweight - the hallmark of Carbon Fiber.
  • Tested on the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife.
  • The frame comes complete with matching mounting hardware-hiders to complete the look.
  • Makes a great finishing piece for owners of the Carbon Interior Kit or Carbon Rear Spoiler

I made one of those up, post your guess below.

All joking aside it is a good looking license plate frame. I just wish they wouldn't over sell it as some amazing BMW M inspired product. For those that are thinking about one here are the P/Ns and pricing.

That carbon fiber one has to be at least 1 lb. lighter than the frame my dealership mounted. That could shave .02 seconds off of my zero to sixty time!

For those who happen to live in New Jersey, note they are technically illegal because they obscure the "Garden State" nickname on the bottom edge of the license plate. And no, I did not make that up!

The fine isn't steep and carries no points...maybe keep that in mind as a bargaining chip, whilst explaining to the trooper that the frame was designed for the Nordschleife and you aren't yet accustomed to the additional performance.
