Because the perception will be... that it's just a bastardized 135i and not a true M car.

I'm not hung up on badges, I just don't want to go through the BS of explaining why BMW did what they did to every frickin person that says, "If that's an M car, why didn't they call it an M1?"

More for my own sanity.
