They can rename the "1 series M coupe" the "M135", the BS turbocharged upcoming "M3" the "M335", and the current "M5" the "M555".
Then they can reserve the single-digit M names for true M's with NA engines, like, um... nevermind :-(

I was thinking the same thing.
Apparently no one here remembers when they " Diluted the brand" with the M535 and the E30 M technik and the M635..

Bunch of Luddites you all are. These cars will sell like hotcakes... these lower level M branded cars have been selling like crazy in Europe.
