My Ride: BMW 2000 323CI
M stickers, So lame even the police hate you.

Hey Everyone,

Today I was driving my sister home and noticed a cop following me. getting almost all red lights on my way home, I patently waited for him to pull me over every single time we started or stopped, but he didnt. At one of these red lights an Old Ford Racer (http://images.fineartamerica.com/ima...lin-parker.jpg somthing along these lines)
turned left, spinning his wheels and drifting around the corner. I thought for sure the Police man would totally go after an old ford that was doing excess of the speed limit, doing burnouts and general classyness. He Didnt.

So anyway, We continued driving till I eventually got onto the home stretch, almost home. Then out of the blue behind me, lights flashing and he pulls me over.

"Excuse me son, What model car is this?"
I respond with "Its a BMW 323ci,"
"But it has an M Badge son."
"yes, its a sticker...." I reply shyly.
He looks confused and then asks me to open my bonnet, at this point I knew I was safe, the moment there was no M sticker on my engine should give it away as not being an M. a couple minutes later he gently closes my bonnet, which means he hasnt shut it properly and starts wrenching at it, I sigh and he eventually closes it. He then comes back to my window.

"Yeah mate that badge is technically illegal, cause you arent supposed to be driving an M Series, its not a fine but it can get you taken to court."
I say thanks okay sure and he leaves.

So what Did I learn from this? That BMW has gotten with the government to not let anyone who doesnt own a M model have M stickers and that it should have me taken to court.

Looks like I'll be getting some TRD, AMG and FPV stickers to glue on to my car now....
