    Hi as the title suggests could someone please post pics or advise where exactly boot badge and front grill badge should be fitted ie left or right hand side, bottom, middle or top of front grill etc.

    Thanks Ive just ordered these and dont want to put them somewhere which looks stupid or out of place, by the way they are for a 2004 320d which came with factory fitted mtech lowered suspension, sports steering wheel and gear knob.

    there is no definitive place for the front grill mate, they were never fitted there as standard.

    I think the best place to fit them is back in the original packaging and straight on ebay.








    Sorry, just my opinion - M badges are for M cars

    Opinion is split here on M badges.

    Personally my thoughts are that if BMW have already splattered your car with M badges from the factory - then, should you want, you can add one yourself, if you like them.

    BMW doesn't reserve M branding for M powered cars.

    Just don't stick one on the engine block cos that would be wrong
    I'm loving it

    Yeah "these days" would be E46 onwards when the accountants started running the company...Marketing makes more money than motorsport after all.

    cant believe I missed marketing in my earlier post, must have been the footie!!

    To the OP - Dont listen to anything I say - im just winding you up, stick the badges where you want - I mean its your car after all isnt it.
    Shiny Shiny Shiny!
