Bumper Sticker Placement???

I won't wade into politics (in this political season), but I am wondering where people put bumper stickers on their E9x's.

I know, I know, there will those who howl that it's just bad form to sully the car with something so crass.

But if you are driven to express yourself this way, where do you place the offending sticker?

I'm thinking perhaps bottom right of back window, where backseat headrest already blocks rear view.

But, no, this isn't the sticker I'm thinking of...

If you absolutely must display a disgusting bumper sticker, political or not, try sticking it on a separate piece of plastic or metal and afix it beneath the rear license plate. This keeps it off the paintwork.

So that random sheet of metal can bang into your paint all day? Bad call. The glass on the very bottom is best imo. That's where my parking permit is. (Originally they wanted to make them bumper stickers, but I along with everyone else refused to put them on paint so the administration succumbed. )

double sided tape to the inside rear glass, less visible but also more subtle and easily removed after the masses are swayed to your thinking

as a bmw owner, you are agnostic to politics. your only concerns should be family and how do i extend the joy of driving abimmer. your views are personal and better left for late night drinks at bars.

+1 In a perfect world I would never have to read some assholes views on abortion or asking me about what some imaginary cosmic jewish zombie would do...

I always found Thanksgiving diner with the family to be the perfect time for political/religious discussions when I've got places to be...


For the OP though, if you just have to do it? I'd say rear window glass. That way they can at least be removed with little fuss.

Never heard of adhesive rubber bumpers, huh?

Because surely those bumpers won't get any spec of dirt on them that will scratch nor will they themselves mar the paint bouncing off it all day.
