I have never heard of this. Here, you could paint 8 LITRE TURBODIESEL V12 on the side of your car and never get a ticket. Can you really get cited for a badge? Or is it more like getting cited because for some reason a certain engine is not permitted (in which case having just a badge shouldn't make a difference)?

Hi, I'm a noobie here. Funny story, but seeing you have a P plate I would be saying, he was more concerned about the fact that you were driving a car that doesn't fit into the power rating for P plate drivers. In saying that, it's funny how many P platers you see driving cars that are technically illegal for them to drive. Your Beemer isn't one of them.

ye in AUS, depending which state you're in. You are on a probation licnece for the first 3 years (generally). This means you cannot drive turbo or 8+ cyl cars. Certain high powered cars which fall out of those categories are also banned (M3)

Im gona put in my 2 cents. M badges and stickers go on wheels, steering wheels if you have an M stitched wheel. or door sills maybe a shift knob like it would come as if it came from factory on M sport cars. Never put an M badge on the back of a 3 series. Major fail sorry. Cop sounded like a prick theres no law for having an M badge on any car he was just basically reminding you that its a nono in a power trippin way.

LMAO. It is a bit that way I guess. When I got my license (Many moons ago) there was no such laws for young drivers, you could drive a GTHO Falcon with no issues. But these days, they do limit young drivers here as to what they can drive, no turbo's, no V8's. My daughter wanted an RX8, but again it's a no no here until she has her full license.

So you guys are saying no M sport badge on any 3 series unless it is fact an M3? Our 318i has been optioned with a heap of M sport gear & has M badges everywhere but externally. It's a BMW Individual.

I dont see what the problem is. It was the best thing the government has done limiting the cars which our stupid, irresponsible p platers can drive. Im hoping they up the legal drinking age to 21 soon too. The younger kids these days are becoming even more stupid then 18 year olds from 10 years ago.

Many people in the US aren't aware that euro models can come as an actual "M sport" with an M badge on the trunk. We don't have that option here so they get flamed for being posers even though it does not say M3 and did come from the factory that way. Ignorance is bliss.

And you think that 21-25yr olds + don't cause problems? I don't think the 21 drinking age is going to make a difference...



Oh, and there should be more police out there fining you for putting trashy stickers and wheels on your otherwise beautiful car....

Moral of the story: P platers are welcome to drive M3's.

They just need de-badging first. Then they're much safer vehicles.
