Fake plate is worse than fake badge. In this case badge is not fake. Sad

It doesn't help that some authorized dealers are now selling "M logos" in their lobby stores.

I was driving around in Salt Lake city.
SO many BMWs sporting fake M badges.
Are the Dealers selling M stuff in their inside stores?
I guess ma and pa are buying all sorts of crap in the retail stores

I actually think that BMW either do not really care, or actually encourage all the M stuff being sold at their stores. It sure does irritate the BMW enthusiasts

As an official M owner I might be tempted to commit my first act of automotive vandalism or at the very least a citizens repossession.

Back in the late nineties/early noughties when I owned my e34 M5 if you'd wanted to buy an M badge from my dealer you had to show them your log book to prove ownership, as they wouldn't sell you one if you didn't actually own an M car.

I know this as I had to buy a set to replace the M badges that I'd previously removed when I went to sell the car.
