On ebay there are ///M emblems that replace the BMW Roundel on the trunk of our E39s. I was wondering how that would look.... anyone have a pic of one of these on their M5?

I've seen them on plenty of BMWs. They don't look good IMO.

Hey Guru Bill,

I have seen some M3's with them on the Hood. I didn't like it. It is not as Classey as the BMW one. It just didn't look or feeel right.

I think they look good. They are much nicer then the stock ones. I've noticed that people who dont like stuff like this usually don't mod their cars and like the stock look. But if you want to be unique and not look like eveyone else then I say go for it.

The above opinion is just Bullsh*t. They look like cheap crap! Nowhere as good as BMW's. And I like modified M5's. I don't have a picture, but I have seen them.

With that signature I ain't going argue that you like to modify your car. :byee55amg

If you think that these don't look good then you're smoking crack. The original BMW ones are fine but for an aftermarket look these are pretty awesome.

There is a company out there doing a carbon fiber roundel but they are pretty steep.
Sorry ******,

But I also have to strongly disagree pal. I love to MOD the hell out of my cars. I must smoke crack, becasue these M badges just do not do it for me. They look cheap and nasty.

I like the three stripes that guys do on the Euro bar. I think Jason (atomic 80) has them. They are cool.

I don't mind the C/F roundel that is sweet. But alas something just is cheap about these M badges.

Just my opinion.

Regards MJ.

They look horrific! Like all those people out there who stick ///M badges in front of their '525i' or '318' badge (why do they always seem to have magic tree air fresheners hanging from their rear view mirrors?)

Don't do it!

Crack and then some .... These are godawful mods to such an elegant car and I wish you hadn't posted the link since I'm now feeling naucious. They shout "RICE" as loud as possible; frankly, I'd rather go to the dentist than fit those :hihi:

Regards,

Gary.

Don't let the body shop hear about those, since a concours show would laugh at such a modification. You'd come in last place.

The existing ///M emblems on the car are nicely done and not overkill. Such a roudel would really spoil the looks of a very special car - IMO

Ouch - terrible choice of words. The crack smoker who did this went to jail:

Sorry, if I scarred anyone emotionally- the pic is very graphic!
