Last weekend I washed my car for the first time at the new house... Black is so hard to keep clean, but SOO worth it!

I always wondered if BMW could not use 544 because it was a Volvo marque. (Sort of like the Porsche 911 was originally supposed to be a 901, except Peugeot owns that car name)



This is a Volvo 544

Obviously BMW didn't want old ladies around the globe to confuse between the two.

Not an old lady car unlike 80s & 90s Volvos.

I think the 544 badge is to let folks know that there is something a different about his car...like the fact it is supercharged! Also his Dinan badge was stolen.
