M badge on rear where to place?

I see some bmws with an M badge on the rear, are these for msport versions or have folk simply stuck them or were they indeed a proper addition to the boot?

I have one at the moment on the RHS just the left of the 335d badge, or should it go on the left of the boot on its own, or should it be removed lol.

Cheers

They were never fitted, please remove it

Seriously, it's up to you but the only cars to wear them is the M cars and the M135i in recent times.

Take a photo of your car with 'M' badge and put it in Clownage thread before somebody else do it.

BMW have started putting small badges on the front wings of the F30. I don't understand why? Any ideas?

Don't forget to put one on the front grille. Should give you a good power gain

I don't know why, but it looks terrible.
M badges should be for M cars only.

Bin definitely. Saw a 520d with one on the rear and each front wing. Unfortunately I couldn't capture it for the clownage thread.

I think BMWs look better with no badges on the back, even the model. A clean line looks much better

Agreed!!! I don't have any badges on the back of my 335is. I love the clean look and symmetry.

I think you should get another one, and put it on the opposite side to even things out.
