I think you need to take the lead weights out of the boot and put them back under the bonnet! :)

Actually, I quite like the stripes, each to their own.

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

I think it looks fine, quite subtle and doesn't actually say "M". However some might say you need lots of exhausts to qualify for anything "M" related :D

think it would look better right at the back of the sill, looks like it may generate a few "why did you randomly put it there" questions
(this being one of them :D )

I actually like that it lines up with the front of the door.

Given that BMW stick ///M badging on pretty much every car that leaves the factory these days, I don't think the M-Police really have a leg to stand on any more!

I'm with Gookah on this one I agree. But I'm also not to fussed weather its on and M or not. He's clearly not trying to make his car look like an M. It actually looks smart. Would look better further back on the sill.

Have to be honest, I don't like it wherever it is in the sill.

I don't like chrome side gills either.

But then who am I to say? We are in a broad church on here and each to their own.

I don't like it, nothing to do with ///M branding as already said above BMW stick that everywhere on every model nowadays (except the boot :twisted: ), I just do t like it for cosmetic reasons. Makes it look like the doors have been re sprayed and the stripes missing.

Don't get me wrong I have absolutely no issue with anyone using the ///M badges or colours.
I used to own a Z4M, and seeing lots of non-M cars with them on just makes me smile, however some would have them hung, drawn and quartered for 'diluting the Brand' when BMW are the biggest culprits of this anyway, as it sells extra cars with 'M-Sport' bodykits.

I don't mind people putting the ///M badge on the boot either. After all its their property, who am I to say what they can do with it. :D
Still think it would look better at the back though..... :D
