There are 18 visible M logos (!!) on my car.....

this includes the one on my front license plate frame and the one on the owners manual in the trunk. Too bad all those M's didn't actually add power.

From front to back:

License plate frame
Intake manifold
Underside of hood (2)
side vents (2)
door sills (2)
floor mats (2)
front head rests (2)
instrument cluster
footrest
steering wheel
shift knob
owners manual
trunk lid


And this doesn't include any of the mechanical/suspesnion components. Can anyone think of any more?

Yeah, owner's manual doesn't count man.

At least I have a shorter list: No stinking frames, no M mats (have BMW all-season ones), and no trunk emblem. The 2 side gills are enough for me . The rear muffler is a dead giveaway it's an M3. If somebody doesn't know that, they're not going to know what 'M3' means anyway .

It helps the poseurs justify and feel good about their purchase. Enthusiasts don't give a sh*t
