Re-badge...HELP

I de-badged my 325i few weeks ago and I cant stand people
asking me where is my badge. Everyone from friends to people at the gas station want to know what model I'm driving and where is my badge. If I had 330i or the upcoming 335i, I wouldn't care, but I feel like I'm hiding something (especially because I installed 162 wheels on).

So here's my question: Where do I get new sticky badge from? There are none on ebay. Dealer maybe? Thanks.

Yeah....leave the car how you like it.

If others can't tell...well, that is there problem!

However, if you now want it back on...talk to the dealer. Surely, they can get one back on for you.

Well where is your badge? You just took it off; did you throw it away?

Once you take it off, self-adhesive stuff is gone...

I would think you could get some 3M adhesive that would stick it back on.

What's the big deal with telling them the truth? That it is a 325, unless you are truely trying to hide that fact. Anyway who really cares, you have a nice car. Enjoy!

As for your question, hell, just glue the old one back on if you must.

The 325 is an awesome car, and with 162's it's even better. Just tell them the truth, that the car looks better without the badge.

put it on as 253 and tell them your 325 is dyslexic.

Seriously, who cares... They may ask the question once then never again. I'd leave it off. Next time order it without so you can tell them it came that way.

LOL I might have an extra 325 badge set. They had my car badged incorrectly. So the ED Delivery Center took the 325xi off and left it in the trunk. I left it in the truck for shipment back. I'll see if it's still in the car when I take redelivery.

I like the fact that I do have a 325. Most people don't even know the difference between a 325 and a 330 anyway.

Exactly. You literally can't tell unless you look at the badge and the chrome grill. But some people just think the chrome might be an additional option.

Oh, so you have it.

Do you need a whole new set? Can't you just have the dealer or some other reputable body shop place just re-glue it back on for you (if you do not want to do it yourself)

I DO TELL THE TRUTH. That's not the point. What bothers me is
explaining why I took the badge off. Anyway, thanks everyone for the advice.

Following your logic, maybe you should take off the 162's because that will only confuse people more. You gotta keep them happy, no?
