To badge or not to badge?

What do you guys think about de-badging M3's? Of course I am proud that I am driving an M3 but I think the clean back end like in this pict also looks really sleek. Do you guys have any picts of de-badged M3's?

I think it's quite classy to consider de-badging an M3. Very understated.

Usually, guys with lesser models de-badge and mod-up to make their car look more like an M. How cool would it be for someone to be so confident that they would de-badge one of the most prestigious logo in the industry?

I debaged my Z4 M Coupe. It had 1 in the rear, and 1 on each side. After a while it looked so "empty" without badges. So I put the one on the back. I kept the sides debadged. It looks very clean.

If that's what you feel was an extra 20 grand then go ahead and throw some 22s on it with a couple of 12 inch subs in the back, add some chrome door handles while your at it.

Don't take advice from the guy driving the convertible in the snow.
I got a matte black M3 badge instead.
