F*%ckin right I want people to know I'm driving an M3. I even wear M3 clothing and have an M3 keychain. I've waited 27 years to drive this car, I will not hide it.
ok that is just wrong, but wtf ever happens to you lol

I agree. What I don't get is why people get M badge license plate frames. It's a little redundant.

Why wouldn't I? I didn't buy an M3 to be a badge whore...... My philosophy is "People who know cars will know, people who don't know cars, I don't want them to know."[/quote]

i actually find debadging attracts more attention to the car and is more pretentious...like you dont want people to know what it is. i know when i see a car with no badges or designations, i do a double take...

I just took off my M3 badge yesterday, so there's nothing on the outside anymore. Next up, I'm going to take off the fornt lip and diffuser and go for the Type 2 diffuser that Eclipse Motor is going to offer

I love the debadge/black trim look. i am doing that to my M3 as well. still thinking of removing the spoiler, too. i just think it makes the car have smooth and clean lines. How did you tint the side turn signals???

Those were painted by a body shop.

Looks good Kev. I just debadged the rear, mostly because I like symmetry, hate waxing around badges, and already have subtle 'M3' badges on side markers. I decided to leave those since the car looks better IMO, at least in my color. Take care man.

I'm going for that look now as well. Debadging the back and leave the tiny ones on the side grilles. I love that look!
