        all the bmw with M badge in it's name have big upgrades to performance. M sport, M performance kits for just looks don't have the M badge on the name like the M135i or M240i. the ones with M in theyr name all have uppgrades that justify the badge. they are M240i becaus they are not full M cars just part. it's not BMW that throws the M badge around makeing it worthless its you people who don't understand what the M badge stands for. the Mxxx series are not just standard cars with an M badge. they do actualy have performance parts in them

          When it comes to Mercedes if it's actually an AMG and not a trim package it will have 1-2 letters followed by 2 numbers.

          I'm 24 and even I didn't buy a fake, I bought a C63 AMG.

                      To put it plain in regards to Audi, quattro is just a AWD version of their cars, S-Line is a styling package and S is has a bit of a performance bump. True Audi performance cars is the RS models

                              So basically you dont like sports trim you either want plain boring SE spec or super cars.

                              I cant afford an M3. I hate the looks of a 3 series SE. Mine is an M sport. I dont call it an M3 or anything. And tbf the e36 is the last 3 series where the non M3 M sport trim and M3 look the same.. after that they are obviously different just being a more sporty looking trim.

                              Same with audis S line VWs R line mercs AMG line fords ST line... they are sport trim levels but using their brands sport name rather than just 'Audi A3 sport' or 'ford fiesta sport'. They look nothing like the actual performance line cars. The only real flop that was in that list is Nismo as that IS their performance line. They are barely different to the normal versions of the car other than appearance and maybe a handling package which is just a sport trim in many peoples opinion, opposed to all the other manufacturers listed actually pump significantly more power into their performance line ASWEL as handling upgrades.

                                  I think we need to cut Mercedes some slack here. They do not put the AMG Badge on any car that isn't an AMG. So, technically the AMG badge isn't a scam. Yes, there are "AMG-Line" cars that have some AMG Rims and Design Elements, but on their back it will still say the normal Class and Model Number (such a A 250), no AMG Badge to be seen. While buying a M-Performance or S-Line Audi (or a R-Line VW), you will actually get the Badges on your car.
                                  So in my opinion you can't really say the AMG Badge is a scam since none of the cars that are AMG-Design actually have these badges, only proper AMG's do.

                                    Amg A class is actually begins with a 35,45, 45s 53, 63, 63s,and the no longer being produced 65 v12 amg . You’re crying and grins as you’re confusing yourself with actual AMG touched cars available by Mercedes. Mercedes-Benz makes a sport and luxury trim. The sports trim have the amg floor mats wheels and steering wheel but that’s it. NO AMG badging, unless it’s a amg..

                                      Luxury and exotic manufacturers should stop producing sports cars and instead just build front-wheel drive cross-overs.

                                          BMW stopped making real M cars with the e92 and e60. Newer models with turbo etc, just dont make it on my list.

                                              You forgot to mention the similarity between S/M series cars, and RS/M cars. In a way Audi S are significantly more powerful, but not as hardcore as RS cars. So I think it's good that there is this middle ground between daily comfort and performance. In addition latest M340i already performs on M level in terms of straight up acceleration, but with adjustable suspension and comfort.

                                                                                            It’s a shame to say that VW even falls into this same “sales strategy” with the R-Line category with the Atlas Beetle Jetta Passat and Tiguan. They only truly R is of course the Golf R. But I can say they R-Line Beetle’s did have more power from 180HP in the 2.5L and 1.8T with a 210HP 2.0T. Not a big amount compared to a Standard Base Golf at 170HP to the R’s 296HP but somewhat of an effort.
