Why? Because they trademarked a bunch of *potential* model badges? As if Audi and MB haven't done that already.

I think people need to realize that just because a company trademarks a bunch of model names, doesn't mean they're necessarily going to produce them all, or even most of them. It's just to have it for themselves in case they want to produce that model.

My biggest qualm is adding an "M" badge to non-M's, even if they're called M3xx or M5xx. To get an M, you needed to buy an M, not an M-inspired model. That's what the M-performance packages were for. But business is business I guess...
