I agree with him that the number or even the M badge doesn't matter as long as it drives like one. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. M nostalgia is nice but at the end of the day, it's how a car drives that's the bottom line.
Seems a reach to compare my style of posting with his, but I certainly did not mean to cause you any offense.
Again, I appreciate your view that the name change does not matter, I just happen to disagree. No right or wrong way to think on this, but the expected price hike associated with separating the sedan and coupe lines is highly unfortunate if realized.
