I think you can get the sticker from bimmian and apply it to the OEM badge.

Those are just regular m colors with white over the red stripe. Maybe it's just me but that also doesn't look like an oem badge, I'm sure you can order one like that made from an oem part from mfest, but it will be $85. IND will also paint an oem badge black for you for a bit less (that's where I got mine), they'd probably do the white stripe for you as well.

I wouldn't order a non-oem badge, they always fade and look cheap.

Anyways, I asked the seller where he picked it up from, and he said eBay, but I haven't seen one similar.

Yeah, that one is actually on an E46, but I figure if I can find out who made that one, I can find an E9X version.

Come on man have a sense of humor, Sport. You've seen the faded M badges right? They look exactly the same. Its the red that disappears first. I can't tell you how many times I've had to get new stickers done from fading on all the M cars I've had throughout the years. When I did need new ones I would just go to my local decal/vinyl guy and have him match the colors and cut me perfect replacements. The vinyl lasts MUCH longer than the paper stickers that BMW has used. I don't know if the newest badges have changed but my E92M also prematurely faded.

Anyway, the only place I know that makes specfic /// stickers is Bimmian. I don't think they have that exact color but you could ask. If you want something really custom though just go to a local decal/vinyl shop.

I actually do have a sense of humor. Had you combined your first (sarcastic) and 2nd (informative) post into one, your commentary would have been rec'd a lot better than dropping in on this thread essentially to give no worthwhile information on your first go round. That being said, thank you very much for the information you've provided. That's a pretty solid bit of information you've provided for me, in regards to the original paper vs vinyl, as well
