The USA has M Sport on all their models all day long. There's a reason why BMW only plasters them on the inside.

If it wasn't there from the factory, then why put it there aftermarket? Not certain what you're trying to prove here with the badge.

What you are telling meto do is like me telling you to take off your bmw badges THEY ARE STANDARD FACTORY BADGES for a bmw m sport 3 series, which is a different car from a bmw 3 series m3
I think that sums it up...... Car is awesome!!!

Mate, you bought the car used so I'm assuming the previous owner put it on there. From the factory you have two options: either it will say 325i on the top right boot lid or it will be debadged.

But in NO WAY will it EVER have the M badge there just because you have the M Sport package. My mother drives a 335i with the M Sport kit. Here's a pic. It says 335i. No M badge in sight.

Very clean, the 7 hours of labor shows. You don't see that type of silver very often; does it have a hint of blue-green in it?

(comment about M badge intentionally absent)

What's the name of the color? Should be a sticker under the bonnet with the code.

Since it's special order from the factory, it'll say BMW Indidivual. Something like this:

The M badge obsession is frankly stupid. It's only people in the states who have this "oh no M3 wannabe" attitude. It's factory, it's a choice, it doesn't say "M3" move on.

I think the one on the front grill is overkill, I don't mind the one on the trunk at all.

But what I really wanted to say was DAMN! That color is amazing. I've never seen one in person, but even in the photos it looks stunning.

It's considered tacky here in the UK, always has been.

To the OP. If you don't care what people think and you like it for some reason then keep them. If you do care what people think, even just a little, then I would definitely remove those two badges.

My opinion is that M badges on the trunk and front grill are only there to illustrate that the car is an actual Motorsport BMW, meaning it has a Motorsport engine etc. They're not aesthetically pleasing, they just spoil BMW's that are clearly not M cars.

I don't see how someone can put on a M3 bumper and it's ok but if they do the badge it a problem I think the ride looks great people one here do a lot of stuff to there cars to make it another type of car dual pipes on a none turbo,LCI lights on pre LCI and I can go on.
