BMW does grille badges? I thought it was just Mercedes.

BMWCCA gives out grill badges when you renew for three years or more at a time. I recently sold both of mine on Ebay....got $29 for one, and $34 for the other!

Congrats on the mileage...I'm a ways behind you at 230,000 miles.

Me neither, that is why I converted my BMW club badges into cash... I hope they keep giving them out when I renew, what a great subsidy!

I had a Free Mason badge on my 528i for a while.. But kept getting lots of random stupid questions so I took it off.

You have almost double the miles than my '77 Volvo 242! 173K on her and my 530i is catching up to her with 162K. I'll eventually get a high mileage grill badge once it reaches actual Volvo respectable mileage which is where you are at right now.

I've always renewed my membership in 3 year segments since I bought my 540 back in 2000. They never sent me one.
I did however buy one 2 years ago.

My 86 Volvo had 250k miles before and Uncle bought her,it has over 400k and still being used on his farm today,my 94 740 turbo Volvo had 275 k miles before being sold them my 98 ,,960 Volvo wagon had 200k before my Son took that one over as his first ride and drove it another 50k miles. Those rear wheel drive Volvo's were hard to beat,,The BMW is the first one for me,,been an expensive car,,but I love driving her around,,still looks good and drives great,,really running and driving better than it has in years,,right now.
