This is probably moreso true in 2021 than previously. It's been what 14 years since US DOT mandated TPMS (or at least some dummy light solution)? So about a decade since the average person actually needed to use a tire pressure gauge....

Why? This is a thread about fake badges, that's a fake badge, just like every other pic in this thread.

I'm going to replace my ///M with a Honda Type R. Maybe throw the Range Rover SVR badge on there too.

I wish I'd taken a picture of it...

Best one I've seen lately was an Audi A3 in a Walmart parking lot. Had an ///M badge on the back, and not a small one either. It was right next to, and much larger than, the factory A3 logo. I came out of the store later and noticed it had another huge chrome V12 badge on the left front fender.

And if that wasn't enough, I saw it again just the other day...and it's got a big chrome V8 badge on the right front fender...in a scripted font completely different than the blocky V12 on the other side.

I stopped trying to understand humanity after that.

At first I thought the same thing. Nah, he's just assuring that check keeps rolling in. Much like how small business owners buy cars as a company vehicle, and then adorn graphics to promote their business, same thing.

My 4 year olds favorite place to eat breakfast is Waffle House. I saw this today. Worst part isn't that the Bluetech stickers were on there but he was an older guy that should know better.

Had something similar happen. I had some young dude pull up to me at a light the other day in a really nice X5. 5.0, decent wrap, but had M badges all over. And he rolled down his window like he was flexing on me or something. Like I understand thinking you need to fool someone, but you pull up next to a real M car and think you're not going to get laughed at? SMDH
