I caught another one...

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Saw this clown about a week ago in Arlington, VA. Unfortunately I was not driving my straightpiped M5 at the time. It was a 535i, I could tell by the exhaust note. Would have loved to pull up next to him in my M5. I woulda had the iPhone video rolling as I revved my M5 next to him and asked him to race.

I'll be honest, this doesn't bother me in the slightest Let the dude do what he wants with his own car. It could have been much worse

Ah this guy isn't too bad. He installed the M rear bumper (and probably the M front bumper and maybe M5 exhaust?).

No badge would make more sense. Atleast it's not an M5 badge though.

Here in Boca I have seen some crazy badging.

The crap part of it all is when he does infact race someone and they blow his doors off, the other guy will be bragging all the way to the bank excited about how his car beat an M5...

Lots of ridiculous badging in SoFla. X3's, 7 series, etc, everyone thinks they have ///M cars.

Mirrors is pretty much it - unless you consider the badge.

His brakes were not cross drilled either and he had on some weird aftermarket wheels. Also, like I said the sound of his exhaust was a dead giveaway.
