    • Proof N54 owners ruin everything

      WTF is this? As if it was not bad enough the N54 motor brought with it an influx of people too cheap to pay for quality tuning or parts and that have no idea what made M cars special now these people are replacing the classic 'M' in the BMW Motorsport logo with the 'N54' engine code.


      These people need to be slapped.

      Considering BMW is watering the M logo down themselves who cares at this point anyway?

      The classic M enthusiast inside me wants to scream and the adult in me realizes to accept things have changed and are never going back.

      Do not get me wrong BimmerBoost N54 fans. Some of the smartest and coolest people in the BMW modding scene are BimmerBoost N54 enthusiasts.

      It's just a shame what falling prices have dragged into the community. At least they aren't Type R badges, right?

        Sorry but I like it. Too many years of you cant have an ///M sticker. Now that its made specifically for N54, people are complaining . Even the M3 fenders which came with an M sticker were bashed if put on a regular coupe. Then someone made an N54 sticker for it and everyone calmed the hell down. I would say this is about damn time.

        But the reality is that n54 isn 't M-engine and never will. If someone invest enough money, N54 could be better than some M engine, but never M. I'm very confused about BMW. S85, S65, S50, S14, S38, S62 it was M. Now M means marketing so who cares about M logo. I have M5 and my badge on trunk is 520d.

        Guess what Sticky, lowering prices brings more 'tuners' into the fold. That means more market for performance parts. If all there was for a performance market is the handful of elitist pricks, you'd still be blowing your wad over 400whp.

        But the reality is this thread is about an '///N54' badge. Are M owners claiming adjacent letter in the alphabet now ? Or maybe the M is so watered down the N54 guys decided to pick a letter more reflective of their brand.

        Let's see ... same N54 in 1M, 335is and Z4 35is Drive. N55 in M2. S55 is a further development of the N55, as are most S engines later development of earlier versions for passenger cars.

        Who really cares which non-M badges anyone puts on one's car?

        Considering classic M's have been making 1000+ hp before the N54 ever came out you are way off there.

        Or prefers for his M badge to come with his M car.

        Always amusing to see the sensitivity over being reminded the N54 is not an M motor and should not by anywhere near an M badge.

        The badge is lame as hell.

        N54's only race on dynos.

        In the real world M3's rule the day.

        Always have, always will.

        No he just told you the N54 isn't an M engine.

        I love the inferiority complex.
