Thought it best to give the car a clean before fitting the stickers,only fair to show Makkan's stickies in the best light.

One by the w/mirror:



One in the top r/hand corner of the rear screen (shite pic!):



One clean car



Manks thanks once again Makka

Last two stickers will be going to
Sailorbaz
NavG

Other than that, only one person has not paid yet. If funds are not sent in next 48 hours, stickers reserved for that person will be given to whoever wants here.

I think the sticker is good in a way because of how bold it is. However I think for me it's a bit too much.

This is the one I had printed by my colleague:



It's 5cm by 5cm

They are stickers matt, I'd say it's in the name.

Ian: Probably, but don't want to mess up Makkan's thread ..

Matt, clean the area with some glass cleaner, dab your finger in some water and apply onto coloured side of sticker, then apply onto window (I used spit)!

Use a credit card to remove any air bubbles.
Remember to fix on inside of glass.

Mine's much easier to fit as it's just a strip of pre-cut vinyl and it's so thin no need to worry about air bubbles.

Make sure the glass is clean first though or the letters try and stick to the paper they come with and not the glass ..

Actully, that's a point. It may be more easy to leave the sticker on the paper backing and THEN apply. I peeled my ones off the paper first, and then applied

Spot on instructions!

Ian, beauty of mine is, they are easily removeable. If you like Dave's, at least mine will leave no traces mate.

Dave, If you have more, by all means continue to offer them here.

I am done with my batch as last one will be going to Danny.

Each to their own mate, I am not convinced that yours is enough to protect:

1- Are they visible enough during the dark? Due to black colour, they may not. If they were any other colour, they'd be perfect.

2- Triangle seems like 'Come and break here'.

3- I don't know if yours are stickers. Mine are cling. Easy to apply (if you know what you are doing), easy to take off (for those who will be putting OBD back and taking their cars to dealer), and easy to RE-APPLY (when / if BMW update the software).


This is just how I see it. None of you have to agree or disagree with me. Each to their own.


Dave, if you are left with more pairs, please help our forum members. I am sure that there will be plenty to take these.

+1 I like the design but agree with makkan, if the black was replaced with something bright (red, yellow or orange etc) on the clear background they'd be spot on

They don't stick under their own volition mate. I lost my first one down the side of the window after I wound it down for about the third time.

I'll try wetting one tomorrow - thanks for the advice mate.
