Are we not gonna talk about TRD? Almost every toyota has a TRD version with fake quad exhaust, different wheels and suspension, riced out wings, and absolutely no added power or torque. Worked as a Toyota sales man and this was super cringe. I do have to hand it to the TRD 86 though for being sick af

With BMWs, "M Sport" and "M Performance" mean different things. M Sport is just a trim level with sportier styling, firmer suspension and better brakes, whereas M Performance cars are pretty fast while still being comfortable enough to daily. The new G20 M340i for example is quite close in performance to the F80 M3.

1. The title doesn’t make sense, because your talking about trim levels. Just because an Audi has the s line trim level or the merc has the amg line package doesnt give you the rs/s badge on the car from Audi, and neither do you get an Amg badge On the mercs with just the amg line trim level. 2. Quattro is Audi’s 4 wheel drive system and the same thing with the 4matic system in mercs 3. If you can call a bmw m235i a scam, you are a jerk. The 235i is not as much an m car like an m2, but with only 45 more horsepower’s 40 more torque, you can’t compare it with the amg line to the fully blooded amg’s. You are actually getting what you paid for and a lot more I you compare the prices and specs with the m235i and m2.

Dont seem like you understand what are you talking about.Non of those car makers represent sports styling as sports version and they should not have any power increase.If you want daily car with sporty seats and a bit better looking than regular street car than go for sports styling.If you can affoard and hungry for a power than get sports version.These cars are built for different budgets so you get what you pay for.Fair deal.What is fake than thats you channel bcause you havent done your home work and spreading out some false news

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.

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.

"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.

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!
