My Ride: cars older than you
my ZHP still says 330 even though I changed to shadowline badges, that one needs more mods before claiming that badge

A ZHP comes with enough M badges stock.

Regardless of mods, adding one to the trunklid is just posing, IMHO.

My Ride: 2004 M3
I've seen quite a few modded M3's in the LA South Bay over the past few days...but I would assume they don't post here or could give a sh*t about saying they saw me as well. Couple locals that I see regularly as well...most notable a sterling graphite M3 that I see pretty often.

Just yesterday I saw an AW M3 in Torrance on, what looked to be, polished aftermarket 19's. Later in the day, in Hermosa, saw a comp. package M3 with squeaky ass brakes!

Whoever saw the older guy with the red convertible, I think he is from Manhattan Beach. I see him driving on Artesia in Redondo pretty often.
