I'm looking at getting some interesting OEM trim peices for my car... I was first thinking of doing the door trims and instead of the ///M badge, I was going to get the BMW Motorsport International badge. Then I saw ///M Clubsport (and there are also door sills with this marking)

What's the difference?

Its not a writen law.. but it sure is typed that says you shouldnt put an M badge on a non-M car... people get upset... as long as the driver knows its not an M.. A car is what a car is.. nothing more.. or nothing less...

I wouldnt do it...

///M is fine. M3 is not. End of discussion.

The ///M trim pieces came on the 325 M sports and on the 318ti M sport. The clubsport was another 318ti trim package consisting of some cloth seats and some nifty badges with not the M bumpers.

The normal ///M trim should find, the other clubsport most likely will not because the 318 has a different interior and body.

I'm new to this forum, and I have a 318ti. Before I even noticed it, one of my guy friends asked why my car said //M on it when it wasn't an m3. I didn't konw how to reply but later found out that it was a "sports packaged" car. So cool! haha Still seems like a VERY VERY EXTREMELY slow car. But...i've grown attached to it!

People, don't be ignorant. Fully read my post. I said I didn't want to use the ///M that came stock on M3s... Those that see my postings, know I'm against fake M3s.

I thought either the Clubsport or the Motorsport ones would be unique.

Back to my question, which no one who posted answered (except Kevin, but I didn't understand):

What's the difference? Was the Clubsport an special edition M3?

Sorry.

The clubsport was a special edition 318ti. So the trim pieces probably won't fit on your car.

But the M sport stuff off a 325 will fit.

I think i'm going to go with this one...



Anyone know if there are any additional BMW Motorsport International trim peices?

I also just found out that there is an OEM Individual kit of carbon fiber interior peices... wonder if that looks good?

In my opinion... thats the same as putting stickers on your car of a company that you like... but dont have any of their parts.

This is just my opinion..
