what do u think about poeple who put a /mm emblem on a non M ? i saw some guy today who had a ///m3 emblem on a 318.

Do u think i could pull it off on a 325iS?

I get the feeling i'd be killed if one of u guys ever saw me on the road with that

I think the ///M badge is really about the spirit of driving, not the mods you have on your car. I personally like the cyan, the blue and the red (I think I got it right ). But if you recall how BMW company started - they had an M emblem on a motorcycle in 1920s B)

I agree with what mostwired said too...the spirit of driving!

But...I also feel it's kinda tacky to have the emblems on non Ms. It's like being a "wanna-be". Sorry guys...who have them on....no offence. I personally like the emblems and have thought of adding them on myself but decided not to. What people think do matter, unfortunately.

325iS is an unknown quantity at this point
I've got mixed feelings on this subject. I tend to lean more towards CosmosBlack's comment of it being tacky. It makes me think of all these ricers out there that put NOS decals on a car without nitrous, or VTEC badges on a non-VTEC Honda.

However, I do have M3 wheels on my 325iS so would that be considered tacky? I'm sporting the ///M symbol on my car in four locations.

heres my input on this: you can do as much as you want to your car to make it look like an ///m car (change rims, aerodynamics, interior, engine swap, brake swap, suspension swap, etc) but you should still wont have a true ///m car. they have different vin #s anyway and by the time that you do enough mods to it to convince someone its a true ///m, you could have bought yourself 1 and 1/2 cars or 2 even. so, in the end its never worth it, but if your thinking about putting an ///m on a regular 3, forget it
