This is true. But do not underestimate the power of money, both as a marketing tool and a measure of social standing. I know that there are people out there who buy ///m's not because they are good cars but because they are highly desireable by others (how else can you explain, for example, the success of something like the escalade - it (used to) suck, but is highly desired as a measure of social standing - ?) And if they buy enough of the theoretical ///mUV's...Originally posted by LongHairedHippy@May 18 2005, 11:55 AM
notice that nowhere in that article did they confirm that there would be an M-X5 (or whatever). I get the feeling that even if it is produced, there will not be many sales, since ///M buyers are generally enthusiasts, not someone wanting an SUV with a rediculous amount of horsepower.
I'm gonna m badges like me and my friends collected honda badges back in high school. LoLOriginally posted by LongHairedHippy@May 18 2005, 02:05 PM
if the ///mUV comes out, i'll carry a blow dryer around and debadge every one I see.

This came out a while ago and it might be what they have in mind for the //MUV
If it ever was produced I would have to have one.
