Truth be told, the vast majority of drivers on the road will only notice the BMW badge, and that the car is a BMW.
Most people won't know the difference between an "M" and a regular numerical badge. It's really just amongst us BMW nerds...��

Maybe these are the badges he has collected from other defeated drivers.

Why would someone (other than my dad) want an Oldsmobile badge on their car?

Exactly! Which is why it's so funny when you think about people putting M badges on non-M cars (and AMG badges, etc. etc.). Only true enthusiasts will *really* know what the badge means, and they'll automatically know it's fake!

Yes but why do you think they want to fool someone? I mean the person who puts an m3 badge on his 320i yes, obviously. But I think people are just bored and have bad taste so they put the ///m badge on. At least it shows they are enthusiasts? I guess, haha

saw a horrible example the other day - couldn't snag a pic on the highway

brand new X1 - clean and fine as it is - white, MSport - tasteful tint

HUGE M badge next to X1 and not just that it was at like a 30 degree angle as to not overlap the taillight

I might be a cynic, but if you're throwing *excess* (yes, I know most m-sport cars come with badges stock) M badges on the car, it's clearly to try and show off that you have a more expensive or a special version of a standard car (which is likely false) and not because you're an enthusiast.

Notwithstanding those who totally rebadge a 320i as an M3, if you have a 320i, debadge it and put ///M badges on the trunk and sides, you're trying to get people to *think* you have an "///M car" and not a base BMW. A true enthusiast would either simply de-badge, or leave the car badging as is.

All my opinion, of course. People can do whatever they want with their own vehicle. I might just chuckle a little when they drive by

What about the people who don’t remove their 20i/28i/... badge and put an ///M logo beside it? I mean, you can’t really say they want to fool anyone, otherwise they would remove the existing badge.

Regardless, I personally put a 218d badge on my M240i and I also ordered an M sticker which I hope arrives soon for the full effect

Well, the "m sport" model is more expensive than a base car and/or people see the m badge and think it's an "M"; so while it's not as egregious, it's still badging the car as something it's not. Again, I don't think there's a problem with it, necessarily, but it's off putting to see.

Rebadging your M240i as a 218d///M is just as deceptive and clearly trying to bait someone or troll someone. Unless you absolutely love the numbers "218" and the letter "d," I don't know how you can what you're doing is purely for yourself and not meant to affect (in some way or another) third parties looking at you/your car.

Again, I don't think it's bad, actually what you're doing is quite funny and will surprise a lot of people who really think it's a 218d. But you can't argue that it's not deceptive

Maybe it's the old (ex) hippie in me, but I sort of like this. I wouldn't have any car I owned in this paint schema -- unless it was a wrap -- but it sort-of-kind-of works in an odd way.
