Where can you buy a good quality gloss black M3 badge?

I ordered the gloss black M3 badge from JLevi, and am pretty shocked at what a piece of crap it is. It's plastic, the M and the 3 are connected (unlike the OEM badge where they are separate), and the colored stripes are a sticker you have to apply yourself (and you'll never get them perfectly lined up). It's certainly not something I would ever put on my car. It looks like something someone would put on a civic. For $30 I'm quite disappointed, but I'm going to hang on to it as a novelty to put somewhere. Is there anyone that possibly sells an OEM or OEM quality gloss black M3 badge?

See this thread. It is just below right now and is pretty new.

Curiously JLevi SW already replied.

I also ordered one from JLeviSW (the chrome shadow one, not matte) - they sent me the larger E46 sized one despite it being advertised for the E9X. Of course that promptly went back for a refund.

Sorry about that mixup, we are working on the Gloss Black version for the E92. At the moment, we only have them in matte black in E92 fit.

You shouldn't have them for sale in the e92 section of your website then.

Sorry to hear you aren't happy with it. You must not have read the product description where it says that the M3 badge on our site is E46 M3 style (connected/large), not E92 M3 style.

Please send it back so we can exchange it for the E92 M3 version, which we have coming next week. We're happy to do what it takes to make you a happy customer.

The OEM e46 badge is not connected, the "M" & "3" are separate.

I bought mine from them in matte black. I think the quality is the same as the stock badge.

I got mine today in the mail from Auto Tecknic. They have both gloss black and matte black. The part, sticker and even the packaging are of OEM quality. Finally...good quality without a $50-60 price.
