"My car is faster than a ford fusion"

Lol. I'm sure all the fusion owners are crying while enjoying all the amenities that your BMW doesn't have. At half the price of a BMW.

To get back on topic. Here is my de-badged 330 for exampling. It's a very clean look.
I've always wanted a slower car then my 330, now I know what one to get.

Lol. Really the 360 is an understated looking car in the exotic world. Most people think that it's a corvette so don't feel bad. Part of the reason I bought a 360 is because of this reason. I would like to actually drive and enjoy this car and not worry about taking it out and having to watch over it constantly. Irish you are right man, the 360s that don't have the scudaria shields on the side can easily be mistaken for something else to most people.

Understated? I beg to differ. First time I saw a silver one parked on the street I was blown away with desire. I circled around the car numerous times soaking it all in an decided then and there that I liked this supercar better than any other I'd ever seen. Has incredible curves like the most gorgeous woman I've ever known. Stunning is far from understated.
I'd worry about this in every parking lot I ever visited with it.
I'd not protect it with anything less than this:

The reason I would De-badge a 330Ci/i would be to enjoy the look on the other guys face when I walk him in a quick little sprint. The other guy is thinking it must be a 323 or 325, but it's not.

My other thought would be to take my 330Ci and badge it as a 318Ci, 320Ci, or a 323Ci.

Imagine the LOOK on there face when my 318Ci gives them an a$$ whooping.

I recently had my 330 painted, and they had to take my badge off. It's been 10 months and I still haven't put them back on. It just looks like something is missing, so I just ordered new Matt Black 330CI badge to put back on. So I can kind of get the best of both worlds.

My car has been repainted so the 330ci badge was glued on crooked so I removed it and have no intention of reinstalling it. Ive also removed the dealer license plate frame and the little dealer decal they love to stick on. All that's left on my car are the roundels and the factory M sport decals on my m68s.

330CiA

instead of taking off the badge, you should add an A for AUTOMATIC to show off your pride..330CiA

just to clarify something said earlier, your 330 AUTOMATIC is only 00.1 of a second faster than a 323/325 manual 0-60.

So true; who the hell feels like shifting in traffic or when your tired out.
It's nice for a Sunday only car, but for my DD, I prefer auto!
