Dinan5 badge

Looking for a Dinan5 badge. I have had quite a bit of Dinan work done to my vehicle, but don't feel like dropping another few grand to buy their ugly rims in order to get the badge.

Does anyone have one they would like to sell?

Anyone? Anyone?

Isn't that the whole point of the exclusivity of having a DINAN badge though? I'm not trying to judge but you gotta get to 10 to get it!

Just get some new pedals or something... What do you have so far? Just the stage II software upgrade? How many point do you have?

Since I posted this request I have procured said badge. I've come to find out that there are none on the open market and I got extremely lucky.

I've thought long and hard about this because i struggled with the point youve made. I typically don't own my cars for very long. Maybe 2 yrs or so. I didn't want to wait that long to apply for it just to sell my e60 like a few months later. I have a stage II (2 pts) so far but plan on getting the exhaust next (3 pts) and then suspension (5pts). That's my plan. I figure it will set me back $6k all-in.

Correction: I have a Dinan badge. I just didn't buy the over priced silly wheels to "earn it".

The badge is for the people who have made the investment - not someone who can buy it on Ebay,

So what does it do for you - an ego boost? Do you feel more of a man now that you have the badge? Just seems weird.

I have the D2 software, but never thought of "buying" a badge. What's next on your list - a purple heart? Guess you can buy them on Ebay too...

What a bunch of haters... Dude has Dinan stuff on his car and wants a Dinan badge for it. Who cares? Do you guys really take your cars this seriously?

I had ///M sills, ///M steering wheel, ///M wheels and a ///M shifter on my old 540 m-sport, I knew I should have put a ///M badge on the back of that car because it had ///M parts. He could have added other mods to his car besides wheels to get that badge.

Only with adding ///M floor mats to above would you have earned the M badge on the back
