Like you, I wouldn't have opted for the badge deletion. But then i've never been that trendy.

If it didnt come witht he badge and you applied it yourself, it has the air of trying to make people think it's an M car when it's not.

Ditto. Lovely car but the badge needs to go.

And I didn't mention this last time because I didn't want to upset you but have a look here. 35 pages...

You don't want to end up on there do you?

Ditch the badge ASAP. In my neighborhood having M badge on non M car will definitely get you keyed. If you don't have the balls to go full on M, don't try to badge your way outa it.

The M logo is already all over the car as an M-Sport. Its not like you the logo right next to your 335i or you debadged it and just left the M, your car is clearly a 335i so I dont see how you are a poser. Only people that are going to flame you for it are the people here on the forums which is probably the #1 place for online criticism. That and youtube comments.

Actually unless you're a complete tool (which the OP obviously isn't) I don't think anyone sticks these things on to make people believe it's an M3 or whatever.

It's just a little personalisation step too far...

Love the M badge, but you also need a Turbo badge and a Hybrid badge next to it

Sorry OP....i thought that badge came standard and you hadn't opted for the de-badge option (thought it was an M-Sport that came with a badge). If you've added it...then i've gotta agree with everyone....lose it man.

I would say the exterior M badge would be okay if you had a tune done to the motor and were putting out more power than the average 335i. The M Sport line does have some nice cosmetic additions that the other lines don't but performance wise it is a similar deal.

I have a M sport myself as I think the car looks better with this trim and I love the thick steering wheel and hex aluminum trim and the EB2 colour. But I wouldn't put an M badge on the exterior unless it came that way from BMW. Too much a poseur! Your Melbourne Red looks striking and the black kidney grills really work.

No need to front it, your car is already nice as is. Any badging on any car is a big no no.

eg: Si badge on a Civic, RS badge on an S-model of an Audi, AMG on a a Mercedes...yeah you get the point.

The M badge on the rear is fine...as long as it has an M car stuck to it.

Since it doesn't, you chose poorly.

I vote no on the M badge on the trunk lid. It is out of place since it is not an M car. The other M badges that come from the factory are of course ok on a non-M car.

Find a matching word Sport and put it next to the M so you get ///MSport on the left and 335i on the right and then it works

Every time someone gets in my car (I haven't rebadged) "oh woah this is an ///M?"

"No, it's a 335i. BMW just threw a ton of ///M stickers to see how many would stick."

Wish they would give us the M-Perf parts, but leave the stickers at the factory.
