BMW’s 2015 M3 sedan has 67 visible “M” logos

Article by Anita Panait, on December 25, 2014

Just how many visible "M" badges does the 2015 BMW M3 Sedan have? One of those who were curious enough to find out was Michael Simari, online staff photographer of Car & Driver. In order to put this question to rest, Car & Driver proceeded to do an actual count of the number of badges.

The count was started on the underside of the M3 Sedan and 3 M’s were found on the engine undertray. Two M’s were found on the exhaust shielding as well and another 2 were seen on the sound deadening material on the underbody. Eight such M’s were further found on the front suspension along with 20 more seen among the different links in the rear suspension.

Car & Driver also found a logo on the liner of each rear wheel and each of the four brake calipers also sported its own M logo. Car & Driver proceeded to look at the body and saw 4 M logos underneath the hood. There were also logos found on the radiator, engine cover, and the drip rail under the A-pillar.

The headlight bracket of the M3 had 2 logos and 2 more were seen on the sills of the front door. On the interior part, Car & Driver saw the “M” logos on the foot rest, steering wheel and shift knob. The backrests of the front seat each sported the M logo.

Car & Driver also found out that the gauge cluster display screen had 2 logos that would glow every time one of the doors of the M3 was opened. Over-all, Car & Driver declared that there were 67 visible “M” logos in the M3 Sedan.

Car & Driver however says that other M markings that can be found if a panel was removed were not considered. Still, Car & Driver confirms that they arrived at the same figure when the same test was done on the Roush Ford Mustang.
