    Probably because so many people stick them on their BMWs without thinking what version their car is or where they're sticking it!

    I had an E30 325i touring a few years ago which I spent a bit of time and money on improving and modifying. Basically the idea was to bring it up to the equivalent of the 2-door E30 Sport spec, and bar the M-tec 2 bodykit which I wasn't sure about on a touring, I did. It already had an LSD plus I added a couple of extras that I wanted to add myself over and above the Sport spec. Now personally I felt that I'd added enough m-tech items to warrant a little m badge on the front grille, the smallest grille badge you could get, and I think it added the finishing touch. Basically what I'm trying to say is if the car warrants it, it's done correctly and as far as possible looks like it belongs there, then its fine.

    Attention to detail is the key IMO
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........

    nothing worse than an overbadged car.

    E.G

    i saw a 1.1 saxo recently with badges saying.....
    '16v'
    'v6'
    'turbo'
    and 'sport'

    despite it being completely standard and none of those things, it just made me laugh more than anything!
