Fake Badges & Such...

I know many of us have become very frustrated with badge happy BMW - adding the M badge to things like the m235i and anything with an "///M" cosmetic package.

But how about all those other people who are really abusing the badge? This should be a fun thread to post some of the fake ///M badges we see out in the wild!

I will snap some pics on Monday. There is always a mass quantity of M3 328s at the service area, regardless of dealership, in San Diego.

I once saw a Honda Pilot with a GT-R badge. I wasn't able to get a picture of that, but I did get a picture of this appropriately named "dope."

Updated pic...

The ES line is exactly this, so they wouldn't be far off.

Funny how people love badges. I purposed deleted my M4 badge.
I didn't get a picture but there was a guy in a M235 all blacked out but his badge said "M2", kept wanting to race so I showed him the true power of M.

Pretty much. I bet most people wouldn't notice but since I'm a car nut I saw right through those badges

Anyone ever think maybe they just love M cars? Possibly have one as a second car?

Who cares what people do to their car IMO.

My favorite is an acquaintance who debadges both of his 335 and x5 in the hopes that people will think they are M. Both great cars. Sad that he has a complex about them.

Here's another one...not a fake badge, but more of an "overbadge."

I debadged my 328 in hopes that it would clean up the rear end a bit. Do you think that may be his motive as well?

Definitely not the reason he does it. Not questioning your motive at all. But he has literally said to me that he does it for the reason I stated.
