Uhm, pretty much every topic on the forum is repeated at about that rate. Search function sucks and is nearly useless, and no-one wants to wade through 100s posts of tangents to find something of value to care about. That's actually the core purpose of long term members — memory system for this chaotic archive.

I'm enjoying the discussion. So here's more fuel. What are people's thoughts on something like this? Someone put an M340 badge on a 330..... maybe they thought the M3 badge wasn't realistic since the G80 isn't out yet?

I mean, that is as blatant as it gets. At least there is some slight chance the guy with the X-line X5 just thought it was a cool BMW badge and didn't really know what he was doing. This one actually changed the numbers. No mistaking that intent.

Any chance you can go back with some painters tape with 330i written on it and tape over it? Just sort of an, "I see you!" kinda thing...

That a great idea! I'll change mine to X6 — that's the kind of cognitive dissonance hesitation that wins street light races, baby!

Lol. I don't know much about the first gen X5's, but 2 nights ago on the highway there was a non-quad tip X5 with giant steam roller wheels with M X 5 M prominently displayed on the back in letters that looked about 2x the size they should be, and placed on there so crooked I can only hope they did it on purpose.

Make sure to give it the MX6 treatment... that'll have them shaking

Guys, check it out. As much as I loved my G05, I just decided it wasn't quite fast enough. Sorry to say, I've moved on and upgraded to something faster. I won't give away my secrets, but the upgrade process was VERY easy.

Bad angle on a 2 generations ago vehicle that has been bastardized by its very confused owner (not just the badge, but the xline piece on the rear bumper too).

It's placement by necessity (probably)... I wonder if this person would have put the //M on the right side if it would fit.
