Generally, the cars you see in shows have those decals because they're being sponsored by those companies, i.e., in return for getting a discount for those parts, you reciprocate by advertising their company.

Agreed. Let your car do the talking, not a bunch of stickers. Ruining a beautiful clean look only says "look at me, I'm an attention whore! I need advertisements to show how cool my ride is!"

i think its nice when customers help shops n run there decal , but personally i hate putting brand decals on that lets people know whats in your car.. the less decals the better.. but having one decal at least lets people know you into your car eg. e90post.com or dtmautohaus


but thats just my 2 cents

i was gonna say that. one of the few decals i like is ACS, the ACS 3.0 i have seen on the european e90 owners with acs kit looks cooler than 330/325i.
