How special can cars be these days when most of them look similar, MT option has dried up and now electric power seems to be the next step.

Since 1988 I've managed to own four BMWs, none of which have had an extra M badge somewhere on the body. I've somehow managed to keep my self esteem. Maybe ///M is now just a participation trophy?

It's a naturally aspirated, proper M car with a proper, M bespoke engine.

It's a boosted 435i with a body kit, and everyone has figured that out.
