Yes, on melbourne red the 19's are ugly in my opinion. If they weren't shiny chrome they'd be sick, but they are and I don't like them.

And I used to have an E30 M3, E36 M3, and E46 M3 i'm one of the few true M enthusiasts on here and i've always rocked the M badge on the front grill ever since my E30 came with it.

That's a terrible comment to make. We're all enthusiasts here.

I've never been good with words haha... what I meant by what I said was a lot of guys on here the E92 is their first M but there's a small contingent on us who have been owning M's for years long before the E92 or even E46 existed.

LOL...so that justifies putting an M badge on your kidney. I hate seeing M badges on kidneys...that was a popular trend on E46fanatics.com with kids and their 323ci's. When I see that, it screams tacky.

This is my fourth BMW, only my second M3 (Sorry I do not have as much M experience as you, however if I was as old as you are, I would probably have had an E30 and a E36 as I AM a true M enthusiast and BMW lover ever since I was old enough to drive). 330ci -> 335i -> E46M3 Competition -> E92 M3.

As a true M enthusiast like yourself, it amazes me that you would actually decrease airflow coming into your engine with that stupid badge At least the E30 M3 had it NEXT to the kidneys not directly affecting airflow like shown below.

Are you serious??? You really think a tiny M badge decreases air flow? You have any evidence that it significantly reduces air flow to affect performance? If that's what the guy want's to do than to each is own. Just because YOU are a true enthusiast doesn't mean everyone has to do what YOU are or are not doing.

I was kidding hence the wink face

He is the true enthusiast as he has stated before. I was simply validating my own BMW resume since not everyone here per OP is an enthusiast.

Hijacked! JK

Going back, I'm not a big fan of BBS LM, reps or real. I would rather get the V710.
