Legal Badging?

I was wondering if it was "legal" to badge a vehicle with the ACS logo (similar to some that ive seen here) if the vehicle has the following ACS products:
1. ACS MT Pedal set
2. ACS Dead Pedal
3. ACS Shift knob
4. ACS e-brake handle

there are all fairly expensive and run close to $250 a piece.

I just didnt know if there is some special system or.. anything. Namean?

Thanks yallses.

Some may say this is a waste of money, but hey, i think its a cool brand! and i havnt seen that many exterior pieces for e30s, so im going for interior.

sure it's legal. There's a purple E36 on base that has had the badge FOREVER. and you can talk to Delmarco. He had an ACS fix for awhile too.
Now if you try and sell it as an AC Schnitzer, and give it the appropriate premium... they find out it's not a true Schnitzer car AFTER the fact... There might be some legal trouble there.

Eh, I have all those(minus dead pedal) authentic, and I stil ldont deserve an ACS badge. I even have an ACS exhaust and SSK, still not worthy...and replica ACS floormats. To be honest I dont know many ACS e30's, if any. I havent seen any other than replica pedals and interior pieces. Are there any true e30 ACS cars? The only ACS cars ive seen start is e32 and up. If there was an ACS add on kit, widebody kit, or somethign alogn th elines in which there was more than jsut pedals i think it would work.

No offense Alex, I jsut dont think of e30s when I hear ACS (except ACS Type II wheels on e30m3's, so hot).

yeah i see what you all are saying.

i wouldnt get the rims, minus a few examples, i think its sad when the rims cost more than the vehicle itself. I just like the style of some of these ACS pieces ive seen. I did however see an e30 spoiler by ACS, assuming its real (i saw pictures, had AC Schnitzer Stamped on it somewhere)

but hey, i gotta make due with what i have!
