Mein Auto: X3 35i
28i and 35i name plate placement ??

Just curious about this...

Why does BMW put the 35i and 28i designation plates (stickers) on the front door sections ??

And on the 3ers and 5ers they put 328i and 335i etc.. on the trunk hatch ?

I think our X's should have that designation on the back hatch like the cars do.

Plus the size of the 35i and 28i nameplates are so small, you have to be right up on it to see it.

I'm sure you can buy a 335i badge and make your own X335i badge!!!

Personally it doesn't bother me in the slightest. I know what I have and couldn't care less if other's know or what they think!

No not so much to show off - the X3 - any variant - is a sufficiently strong positive statement, but to more easily identify what others are driving. You come to a stop light and another X3 is front of you - Hmmm...what is it? - really can't tell unless you pass it, and squint at the small designation on the side. Just curiosity car watching......

Mein Auto: 2013 X5 35i Premium
If you think about it.. the X3, X5, X6 is the model name of the cars like the 3##, 5##, 6## etc. and the emblem is on the rear hatch.
So with your logic... I guess BMW could put X328i, X535i, X650i and confuse the crap out of us...

You can usually tell by the wheels (unless it's an M-sport)

In Canada, the 28i used to get style 308, and the 35i got style 307. But it appears for 2014 they all get the 308's?
In the US, it looks to be the opposite, 28i gets style 307 while 35i gets 308.

This is another good reason why BMW should have dual exhaust for the 35i.

Though to me, "X335i" makes more sense and sounds better than "X3 Xdrive35i"
