///M Power Number Plate Holder Surrounds - Opinions??

Could I please ask, what do you guys all think about these number plate surrounds????
They would be going on to a black E92 coupe 320i M Sport.
Also does having "///M Power" on a 320i seem stupid? It is an M-Sport?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks all.

Think my plates need something as they just looks so plain and boring unlike everything else on the car.

oh well........

I needed some German plate surrounds for my car so i bought these, look good IMO. Not keen on the ones posted earlier in this thread though. They also do regular BMW ones for those that don't like M Power logos on a non M car.

I've also looked at some surrounds,But the 1st M Sport ones
is a bit of a pee take on a 320i.
The plainer ones do look better.

Each to their own - i have updated my post - the company i bought these from also do regular BMW ones, i believe the OP wants something to improve the look of the plates on his car.

Might be biased but i looked for a while before buying mine and 99% of the surrounds looked very cheap and tacky....incuding the ones above IMO The set i got are very high quality and a bit more discreet which i prefer.

Thanks for the replies,
Correct, i just want to smarten up the crappy looking plates.
Is it the actual plate surround or the fact it says M Power instead of M sport?
Or everything about them?

Could someone please up a picture of the plain(er) looking surrounds you all referenced??
An also what do the dealer ones look like please?
I hope you dont mean the really cheap ones you see at halfords?......More like this but with a BMW logo?

People on the forum generally don't like M badges/decals on non M cars - they think the owner of the car is trying to pass their car off
as something its not - if you like the M power ones then get them.Here are
the plain BMW ones - the quality is excellent.

Here is a link to buy if youre interested:

I have these on my 330d, I hvae no idea why people are so against them. Its not as if your driving around with a coloured light under the car. I personally don't like a car that looks over the top and always like to de-badge etc but I am fine with these. I think alot of people like to step in an say "we know better than that" in a superior type of way.

I have never understood why people fit M Power or even BMW Germany number plate surrounds as they look a bit out of place IMO.

Very dealer dependent but why not get some UK Dealer ones?

Wood BMW have some nice surrounds.
