M Sport on rear, best place to buy one?

I know there is a lot of arguments etc about the placing a Msport badge on the rear, but where is the best place to get a good quality one? anybody bought a good quality one?

If you really must there are plenty for sale on Ebay, can't vouch for quality though. I fear that you may have just lit the blue touch paper though!

BMW garage if you have to put one on!

i also think putting them on the front arches (ala RS4) is also a good idea!

If you have to get one just get a genuine one from BMW. Badges is one thing, having cheap copies is another all together.

I think you can only buy them from BMW in bulk bags of 20.

This means you can put one on the front, one on the back, one on each front wing, one on each door, one on the steering wheel, one on each headrest, etc.......

If you do buy an M badge for your car the next owner of the car will need this web site

Personally it doesn't bother me either, each to their own. If we all liked the same things the world would be a boring place!

Chill guys. Let him be.

You can get it from BM mini parts for an oem one, cheaper than dealers. Alternatively ask your local dealers parts dept for a discount they usually give one no quibbles.

M badges are cool but have you considered 'Turbo', 'RS', 'Max-Power', 'Top-Thrust', 'Throbbing bell-end' or some such? These are bound to be cheaper than the BMW version and since it is all about pretending to be something you are not why not go with 'Space Shuttle' or perhaps 'Fantastic Lover'

Get a grip.

Got to love badge threads. If it should have an M badge on the boot, BMW would of put one there. Lets face it, they put one nearly everywhere else!

It is not an M-Teknik engineered car though is it, it is a trim level. Just because BMW show a lack of taste and honesty in slapping such badges on doesn't mean you have to follow suit. Fiat own Ferarri but you dont see prancing horses on Stradas and Puntos. No hang on you do. Clownage everywhere.

Was in my BMW Dealers today at the parts department and enquired about the "M" Badge and he said they had one in stock as it is a very popular item, so must be a lot of people out there wanting and showing this badge on there cars!
