Anyone put on an ///M badge after a CPU upgrade?

JUST KIDDING. (Although I'm sure there are plenty of idiots out there already doing this.) On a more serious note, maybe the power of the modded 335s will take some of the "poser demand" away from ///M badges. If I see another E36 ///M 318i I might puke. Wow, I just had a flashback to when I parked my M3 next to a bone-stock 318is with an M3 badge on it, and the guy starts talking to me about his "M3". Maybe he had M3 floormats. I digress.

I think a V.2 sticker on the shark fin would look nice.

If not it can be easily removed.

such a V2 badge could be translated to:
"Dear dealer of mine, pls be so kind to check my ECU box, then kick me in the ass before U void my warranty."

give that man a cracker

For 260 $ an hour BMW can kiss my butt before I'd let their techs loose on my car.

Not that impressed with their service manager so far, so why temp fate.

SJ

Edit: sounds a little harsh against the techs when i re-read that, I have nothing against the lads, but do object to the fee

Fake M badges FTL!

What I want to know is where to get a hello kitty badge for my 335.

+1. ^^^^^ LOL. I can't believe so many ppl feel the need to be visually noticed and "targeted." Personally, I love the stealth factor of the 335i, and even more so with my PROcede v2 335i...so unsuspecting...ha ha!!! I love when ppl have this perplexed, jaw dropping look on their faces when I fly by them...like WTF was that???? Oh, that's the new BMW 335i!

Although it's a matter of personal preference, I still think that anyone who debadges the 335i or even worse, slaps on an ///M badge is just lame and they need not be such a poser.

I disagree on the debadging part... the car looks way more clean IMO without the unsymetrical badge on the back. I don't think people are peeling it off because they are embarassed that they have a 335.

lol very good...

I like the last one...

but remember unlike you lucky chaps we don't get the free maintenance package, so actually there is genuinely no reason for me to go to BMW, UNLESS the Car breaks, if it does I take OUT the procede...

But keep the flames coming, I've got a thick skin.

SHIV I do like the idea of a sticker, not to show off if anything it'll have people ask questions about the car.
