Excuse me for hijacking the thread, but at first I was certain I spotted fake badging. Going online and doing a search proved me that this is apparently legit? I don't get how uneven and crooked the badges are, looks hidious. Like someone threw them on while running.

What throws me off is apparently(?) this is badging that is prevalent on the EU models.

For example here, the badging looks as awful: https://www-cdn.rac.com.au/-/media/i...20171030024727

If that is an old 35i state of that tail pipe looks as though it’s burning some oil, unless it’s a smokey old 35d

Whenever I see a faker on the road I always wave & salute them to enable their psychological disorder and watch this thread grow.

CLA 220d AMG. Yep. Bro got out and looked around for a good 15 seconds, probably to make sure no real AMGs parked nearby.

The X6 M50d is an actual model. But with particular one, given the crookedness of the badging, there may be a chance that those badges are actually fake, i.e., the car is an X6 but not an actual X6 M50d? I would have no idea how to visually distinguish between an F16 X6 and X6 M50d, but the X6 M50d I have seen on the roads generally don't have such crooked badging! I vote that that car has fake badging. The aftermarket spoiler is kind of a giveaway too.
