Get a badge that reflects what your car is. If you have craploads of Hamman or ACS mods, then go with that. If you are up there in Dinan points, they'll give you a badge. Use neither if it is just for looks: it will be just as bad as using an M badge.

hmm..... Alpina B2.5!...... yeah..... no Alpina badges either, please

yep... unless you have invested some decent money into one company or another don't do it. All it will do is reflect poorly on the company.

I know it hurts my eyes too read it, but it is not far from the truth.

Now if the opposite is true, like you have a lot of Dinan points, then by all means, let that ricer know he is doomed and live up to the Dinan name.

Not japanese car drivers, but Ricers do. I know. I've seen it. It's ugly. Not all japanese car drivers are ricers. You know it's possible to rice out a mustang, or a bmw, or more likely a jetta/golf?

How do you go about this "ricing out" of a jetta? I tried just throwing the sticky rice at it, but it doesn't seem to work too well. Do I need to use super glue?


PS: Rebadge with a "316i" badge. It's all the rage.







OK...I'm trying to start a trend. Rebadge and claim to have half of your real displacement. It'll be great.

In my honest opinion, Wal-Mart neons, and Autozone spinner hubcaps would look great. Just tape the spinners to your wheels. Use Duct Tape. That adss a certain bit of class.

Well, like one of the earlier, more serious posts said, please don't badge your car with something that people would typically get for having a distinguished company modify their car.
Like rebadging it as a 316 or something, yeah, that's all fun and games, but when you throw ///m in there, you're tarninshing the M-group. If you throw Hamann, then you're tarnishing their name. AC, Dinan... etc.
In other words, by badging your car as something that it's not, you're unintentionally destroying the reputation that some companies have worked long and hard to earn. This is why most enthusiasts don't like people who rebadge their cars in a distasteful way.
Debadging isn't so much looked down upon, because it insults no one. Why don't you try something to that effect - not debadging, but rebadging in non-specific ways; like changing the blue/white roundel with a red/white or gray/white, or putting on clear corners and a euro front license plate to get that european look? That way you aren't insulting any company, but you also look more than stock.
Well, I'm not so sure about the euro plate, but that would make you look well-traveled I guess.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...
