Well why are you putting it to a poll?

Looks stupid, end of discussion.

M badge on non M is soo fkn gay

think about it this way... people who care about BMW's,and would be impressed by an M3, would be able to tell its not a M3 any way.. and think ur a fkn idiot..
People who are fooled and think its an M3.. arnt worth impressing anyway... coz hey obviousl dont know sh1t

Don't do it. I'm going to say you are lucky you posted in this forum, though, less traffic means you might not get your head completely bitten off. This issue pops up daily, and I am not sure I've seen somebody approve of it yet.

M Badge on a non-M car = rice

Think of it this way: It's like all those kids in HS who put VTEC and Si badges on their base-model hand-me-down Civics.

Sad but so true. I say either go with the black emblem or leave it clean. I wouldnt go with the M badge. Faking the funk IMO.

After the M badge, throw a GTR badge from Autozone on next to it! Then u'll be almost complete!!

buy the appropriate lettering to badge it ....in shadowline..... "e46" if you dont want to leave it debadged.

i think that would be different and acceptable.

Those are things the driver interacts with not items that are there solely to announce the cars "level or price tag" to the world. Putting an M badge on the back of a non-m may be the gheyest of things you can do to an e46. I would rather have undercarriage lights.

no badge... nice and clean


not to mention, when people see that you take your badge off, they are usually saying "ha, he probably doesn't want anyone know know he's driving a slow ass 323/325"

let them find out the hard way

(not like 330's are that much faster than other e46s anyways lol

Try this one, get the M turn it upside down and "W" badge it...that'll really throw'em for a loop.
Really though debage and keep it clean. It seems everone here has some kinda M moniker on all sorts of 3er's. Hell I've seen deisels with a M tag on it.
M bagde+non M vehicle= tard fail!
