I think you're onto something there. In fact I think it's the dealers sticking them on. I'm deadly serious. The sheer number you see driven by the most unlikely 'I'm going to buy some cheap badges and fuck about with my car' type people. I saw a lovely Z4 today driven by a typical S11 lady who lunches and it had this god awful M badge stuck to the front grille. There's no way on earth either her or the husband she's divorcing ever got in touch with 'Parts' or logged onto eBay thinking 'This will look soooo fucking cool!'.

My mate went to view ab E46 330i the other day. It had M badges
that had been removed and left the "felt" like stuff
behind, an M3 registration and chrome LED washer jets on the bonnet.

One word that expresses the previous owner...



BELLEND!!

I saw a pensioner driving a brand new x3 towing a caravan and you've guessed it //m badge present. No way that guy will be bothering sticking the badge must be a dealer.

Tried so hard to get a picture I live in hope our paths will cross once again

Not sure what type of tyres that is running but that's some awesome grip going on in that photo.

Disappointed I couldn't get a photo of the standard MINI Cooper that I saw the other day...with a John Cooper Works badge stuck on! What a cock. Available on ebay for about a tenner!

Who could this be? "Not just M Sports - which TBH are a bit of a con anyway - 3k for some extra plastic and fragile, heavier wheels? Yep - that makes it much more sporty..."

Ermm why post this?! Bit stalkerish again?

There was actually a 25 page thread about it - almost all agreeing that it's very sad. And many agreeing about my thoughts on M Sport stuff too

TBH the general PH users there seem a bit more laid back in many ways. They largely agree about the massive wheel thing and seem to agree largely on preferring the sleeper approach to cars.

It's great here but I feel there are a lot more image led BM owners desperate to have a car dripping in gadgets, sporting vast wheels and covered in sporty plastic extras.

Of course the usuals will stampede in my direction shouting all sorts of insults and rants but it's refreshing to have some agreement for once.

Bet it wasn't as nice as this 318i beauty I stumbled across today on Halfords car park..........

What exactly is a BM W3 series?

Love the way the rear window and rear door windows are tinted but the rear 1/4 lights aren't lol

The lettering on the side was in 'chrome' effect btw for that extra classy look!!!

Fixed that for you.

Actually just noticed it's right next to a skip. Are you sure someone hadn't just left it out? You know, slip the bin men a fiver type thing?

And there was me agonising over my black gloss grille.



Yes my friends, that is a VW Polo sporting some sort of bastardised A3 black grille thing. Either a 1.2 or 1.4, couldn't tell because of the lack of badges on the rear. I believe those are 'leather' seat covers too.

Spotted in Meadowhall today.

:edit:

My mistake, it's a 1.9 diesel. Just looked it up.

'09 M3 (e93)  [5.00]
I did post this in another thread a while ago, but this seems the best place for it

Most unconvincing M3 ever, or disguised prototype for the M3 pickup?

Spotted in Jordan - the country that is, not the (in)famous slapper.
