Excellent choice on your X1 Rattner! Right down to your 19" wheels

I want to know how you got the "M" badges on the fender. It seems they were placing them onM Sport models for a short time. Unfortunately mine wasn't one of them.

Beats me, they came with them from the factory! I bet you could order a couple of them though, as my right front fender was replaced with a factory new one when a deer ran into it last winter and the body shop replaced the little M emblem with a new one on the new fender. Check with with your dealer parts dept.

What size are the M badges? If you measured the length in millimeters?. I can probably order them on ebay for a lot less than BMW.

Two inches long and 3/4" tall. Sorry, you'll have to do the conversion
