This video is misleading as it pertains to the M performance models. There are several that add a lot of actual performance and not just looks. Are they “real’ M cars no but the current 2020 M340i is faster than the last gen M3. It has 380+ HP and 3.8 second 0-60 per many car publications. This car is no joke.

atleast for VAG the "line" variants (S line and R line) are options to get special equipment (seats, exterior, audio equipment etc.) to compare the Lines to real S or R cars is kinda dumb. you do get a performance boost in the R and S

I think Audi did the best job of badging their cars by making the “S” cars and then the “RS” cars, clearly separating the 2 levels of performance. AMG and M are diluting their brands by putting their names on cars like the C43 and the M340i, etc. They should have separated them more clearly from the real AMG and M cars.

Ford is one of the only companies to actually put performance badges that mean something. St focus is completely different from a regular st and any mustang with a cobra symbol is going to be a real deal .

@7:00 Nolan, who wrote this script. They just f**ked you. The S cars are different then the S-line trim cars. This has been going on for a while. Both of my '08 A4s were S-Line cars with zero confusion that I was only getting some nice bits and not the completely different motor in the S4. The 4.2L V8 in the S4 isn't a style difference, it's a completely different animal than the 3.2 V6 (which was pathetic) or the eco tuned 2.0T (EA888 gen1 motor)

Quattro isnt Audi performance line, their performance line is the RS line, TTRS is nothing like the standard TT for instance. Quattro is passive 4wd, which is basically a 'you will never spin out' logo, if you see a Quattro, you wont beat it off the line and you wont beat it in the corners, but you can atleast mock them by doing a burnout, which is impossible with a quattro, unless it has serious torque figures, at which point you should be scared if u agreed to a race...

if you suspect your partner's sincerity and you have to confirm whether or not he or she is cheating, especially if you have a distant relationship, I recommend you send an email to cyberhackintelligence@gmail.com or message them on instagram at cyber_hack_intelligence or on WhatsApp +1 (646) 808-0457.

To be fair. You got the BMW wrong. M-Performance is still a proper performance badge as only the most powerful engines are available in M-Performance spec. The difference between a BMW 230i and an M240i is about 90bhp which is a lot, they also get better tyres. The M-Sport I think you're alluding to is where it is purely trim level as a difference.
