You can always order all the parts that make the M6 different from any dealership without any problems...

I've never understood "posing" as another model. Wouldn't it be a tad embarrassing when someone called you on it?

Not for me... wanna look like an M6? Buy one...

The M6 badge is plain tacky (except on an M6). But I wouldn't mind the side mirrors (or the V-10 motor).

You better add a case of oil to the list if you want the M V10. It goes through oil faster than deep fryer at a Chinese restaurant.

I read that. It is happening in the M5s here in the states, or to all M5s and M6s worldwide? Sounds like BMW has some work to do on the motor.

When I had my E36 M3, my cousin had a friend who wanted a M3 as well but his mom wouldn't allow it because it had "too much power". She got him a 328. Dumbass then goes out and buys M emblems, bodykit, badges, etc. The only thing that you can tell it apart was the mirrors, the "M" steering wheel and the seats because it didn't have the "M" piping on the rear and the front were not the sport seats. From the exterior, it'll pass for the real thing.

He said he spent more than a real M3. Stupidest thing I have ever heard.

Yeah but it is probably cheaper to maintain.

The E36 series? Probably not. My uncle and my friend both had 318i coupes at the same time and their maintenance was not much better. The build quality of the E36 turned me off from bimmers for a long time. I haven't bought a bimmer since 2001 when I traded in the M3 for a *GASP* Lexus IS300.

Yeah, I know. I just really don't get people posing in their cars. After I showed my bud my 650i and took him for a spin. He started working numbers in his head to buy an used 645i and said he'll just put the 650i badge on it. I was like, what's the point? Might as well put TRD, Mugen or even AMG on it if you're going to do that.

Are you going to put RalliArt or Nismo or NeuSpeed stickers on it?

Why debadge the 6?

The only thing I debadged with the Boxster (factory option model designation delete) because it's so much nicer with it all clean.

The only reason why I would ask is that the 6, like other bimmers and benzes which regularly get debadged, does not have the badges on top of the decklid, but rather on a vertical surface where badging normally would be. The boxster has its badges right on top of the trunk facing upwards so it cuts into the shape.

Like thus:
