Gotta post a photo of the car I just bought (still waiting for delivery). Previous owner added the ///M badge (AND blind spot mirrors on the side mirrors, and pedals).

Any tips on adhesive removal (floss and chemicals)? lol

Floss or fishing line to get the badge off, then Bug & Tar cleaner or an automotive adhesive remover with a microfiber clothe.

As an avid fisherman, why didn't I think of that?! Will get 3M's adhesive remover! What do you think, monofilament vs fluorocarbon vs braid? I'm thinking mono so it's more blunt so it'll pull instead of cutting through like braid will.

Saw this at the gym. Go figure someone who put a fake "M" on a 335 would also parks like an a-hole. Unfortunately, this is not out in the back of the parking lot, this is only about 100' from the front door. Parking is not much of an issue at this gym, but still; gives us all a bad reputation.

Yes. Took this yesterday and hated everything going on here.
That is repulsive. BMW should ban them from ordering again like Ferrari does if you paint it an outlandish color
😀. I thought you were joking and then saw it is true. You really have to agree not to modify it with badges and colors that are not approved by Ferrari. That sounds crazy.

Me too. I always remove the badges on my "fun car."

I find that fewer people interrupt your day that way. I also don't find alphanumeric characters particularly attractive to look at most of the time.

From what I can see, yours has the M-sport package which got it the shadowline trim, aerodynamic body panels, pedals, and steering wheel. The tailgate badge needs to go. Floss will work, or just a hot day but protect the edge opposite where you're lifting it with plastic like an old credit card when you pull. 3M adhesive remover is the best.

These are so common here I'm almost surprised they aren't a factory option.
