        Go drive a base 2 series and then drive the M sport 240. It's a huge difference in power and handling. Same goes for a C300 and a C43 AMG... and that's not the full blown C63 AMG. With MB there's an AMG line made specifically for looks. Those vehicles do not sport an AMG badge. There is the intro AMG cars, i.e. CLA 45 AMG, GLA 45 AMG, C43 AMG, E43 &53 AMG, CLS 53 AMG, GLE 43 & 53 AMG....all these will spank the shit out of 95% of the cars on the road. These aren't even the full blown 63. This concept does the same for BMW M and Audi S and RS line.

          When I see the ST badge on a Ford it reminds me of a sanitary item used by women

              You pointed out the M240i as being a scam. The M240i is miles faster than the other 2 series cars. Cars like the M135i and the M235i are supposed to bridge the gap between the standard "M performance" (cars that only affects the looks) and the M cars that have been tuned. Simply put, the M 1 series, M 2 series and M 3 series aren't scams at all. All over 300bhp.

                  Quattro is the performance line, it's just Audi failed attempted at pushing it because everyone took it as AWD. The RS is meant to be trim line along with base, S-line, S, and RS. Like Honda's LX, EX, EX-L. Quattro is the actual skunk work. It's in the history. They were giving the Quattro massive grill as a free option on the S and RS models and no one was getting them. But in reality, Quattro is their M/AMG line. It pays homage to their dominating homologated rally cars.

                      I love how shite GM/chevy seemingly matched the (entered market back in 2016) focus RS lettering almost tit for tat. Yes I know RS naming/badging is much older than THIS example.

                                "M sport package" adds handling and aesthetic upgrades, BMW tell you this and honestly outside the US where corners on roads exist it helps. As for M performance not offering "much in the way of performance"? A hot hatch with 340bhp in the m140i for 36000 euros? Or perhaps tge M performance M760i with a tiny 6ltr v12 turbo and 620bhp is just to close in performance to their 3ltr diesel's 26bhp? Also the nismo juke has a 1.6ltr turbo engine from Renaultsport, Renault's motorsports division that builds their F1 cars.

                                  M line means it has M performance trim not upgrades. its just vusual upgardes to make ur car look better.

                                                  There are full on M cars, baby M cars and M badge trims.
                                                  The first 2 are real M cars. The M550 is faster than the previous M5.
                                                  The M850 is also very fast. If a full on M car in the M8 or M5 did not exist there would be no question as to these being M cars. This 30 seconds of BMW is a bit dishonest as there are legitimate baby M cars if you think that a M550 with 523 hp is a baby anything!

                                                  Do your research!

                                                      Of course it had balls. It was in the tuner category with civics, integras, del sols and preludes. The SRT badge is a watered down mess. My mother drove a SRT caravan up until her death and that thing was gutless.

                                                          Unfortunately the Toyota GR badge is pretty diluted in Japan. You can get a GR package for pretty much everything they sell and it largely amounts to an appearance package and maybe some suspension bits. You can even get a GR badged Prius. Also, in terms of the Supra, there isn't a non-GR version (yet?) so I wouldn't count it as a special badge just yet for the US.

You are talking about the ultra pricy AMG effects package, which adds some AMG inspired visual effects on the outside and interior for an insane price, around $4000 for the option, as an addon on a normal model’s sticker price. No AMG badging appears on these vehicles whatsoever and nobody is confusing them with a real AMG. I don’t think AMG has a vehicle in it’s entire lineup currently that runs the 1/4 mile any slower then in the low low 13 second range... My 2019 C43 with just a custom tune and kNn filters is running a high 11 quarter mile..
