Speaking of ///M badges I went to buy a new ///M badge for my car (it's fading) and the dealer wants $35 and change for one!! :yikes:

Bav Auto has them for $29

You don't like the ///M roundel? on an M car?
No, I don't. The hood roundel is indicative of the BRAND of the car. It's one thing to replace a worn BADGE, it's TASTELESS to flaunt your "///M" ness.

Remove it if you want...Don't re-badge.

edit: Except, if you're Vince and have a psychological disorder to OBSESS about Alpinas...It's okay to stick on a fake Alpina roundel on your hood. :dunno:

I haven't made up my mind on those quite yet. A friend of mine has them front and back on her ///M. They look kinda funky to me.

Vince has fake Alpina hood/trunk badges as real ones don't exist. He's asked me to see if I could spot the difference, and I can.

As for that M roundel, I always thought that was a standard BMW part.

Ok, I got busted. :(

Yes, they are handpainted and made in Japan. ALPINA did make some official roundel emblems back in the 80s. BMW slapped ALPINA hard on each cheek, and said "How dare you!". The contact agreement being ALPINA can do whatever they want to a BMW, but never replace the roundel emblems.

Reason why I have them? :dunno: To match the wheel emblems and airbag emblem. A bit flamboyant I must admit. But I do track my car...:eeps:

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

We all know TRACKING your car makes any and all mods justified.

Now, if I know the guy with the ///M roundel DOES track his car I probably wouldn't have cared. Afterall, the ///M roundels make more HP.

Sorry, I dont understand where the problem is here. He payed for the car; he can do whatever he pleases with the car. If you dont like it, keep it to yourself. How are you certain he is flaunting his ///M ness?, perhaps he ljust likes the look.
