Do they have to rename the M35 and M45 as well? That would be embarassing!

Next up, BMW takes on Duracell for their M3 batteries.

Nope, they cant touch Gillette as the products offered by both companies are deemed to far apart in terms of use.

now...

if Gillette comes out with a car, or car related product and sticks the M in its name...thats a problem.

Thats pretty dumb.

The M is a series, just as the G , the Q, the FX, etc. the numbers stand for the size of the engine.

M6 stands for Manual6 speed..

Toronto stock market should go after the Acura TSX....

BMW is just bitter because alot of bmw owners are switching over to the Infiniti

This is only in Canada though

Elsewhere, Infiniti could still use the M

So an M1 has one speed? and an M3 has 3 speeds?

The M For an M3 is actually Motorsport. If it was for the transmission, then you would call an automatic M3 an A3...hmm Audi lawsuit?

Can we sue people for calling a mazda 3 an M3...There was a post about this topic awhile back. And I've been noticeing that more people are calling the Mazda's-M3's, M5's and M6's.

That has to be the worst comment I have ever seen in my life. Seriously.

You can't sue owners because of the nickname they give their cars. And Mazda isn't marketing the cars at m3s, m5s, and m6s. As soon as they do though, they'll probably get sued too.
