My roundel couldn't handle the horsepowerz!!!

As I was accelerating onto the freeway, I saw something fly over the car as I was traveling at, shall we say, "brisk" speeds. It looked like my roundel had just ripped off! Sure enough, when I got home, this is what I saw:



Being a former Nissan guy, I was able to solve the issue quickly:

It sits in the sun while I am at work (40-50 hours per week). The adhesive tape is still nice and soft/spongy like it should be. It's not hard and dry, obviously not UV damaged. The foam tape stuff failed (adhesive layer ripped off), not the adhesive so it doesn't seem heat related.

That's going to void your BMW warranty and Nissan warranty at the same time.

I want to high-five you and punch at that the same time. Kind of like the trepadacious hug at the end of Step Brothers.

I salute you for driving the car hard enough to pop the roundel, but a Nissan badge!?!? For shame...

Funny you should say that, in September in Berlin I purchased a black ////AMG Baseballcap it is now my favorite when I drive my ///m3 I never leave home without it.

That should confuse the heck out of people waiting for me on the red light for it to turn green

Then our DD is a C350 with the AMG wheels and sports packsge, also I once drove a AMG long time ago.
