F82 M3 Badge Kidney Grill for E92???

Am I the only one who likes the look of the new kidney grill with the M3 emblem so much as to want to see a well-made version for the e92?

As far as I know and I stand to be corrected, that's just a trunk ///M emblem painted black and secured to the existing front grill ... Ask EAS to be 100% sure ...

double slat grills look weird. the ///M doesn't look so bad, its odd but not bad. Can look at it as a throwback to the old ///Ms or wanting to be like the newer ///Ms, whichever side of the line you are on I guess.

Not a fan of double slats, but like the look of the front emblem. Would be nice to see a well fitting piece being offered.

Agreed,... but perhaps, for the OP, they are not in the right places.

I have and prefer the 3 grille stripes to all of those. The black M logo would be my 2nd choice though.

Subscribing, I am curious if they will make one for the outgoing E9X as well.

Sorry! Did not see this. I have no idea where it came from. It was on my car when I bought it from the dealer. It was one of the first things I removed.

It clamped on to the grills. Basically the badge had two bolts sticking out the back with a backing plate and nuts. You slip the bolts between the kidney slats, then put the backing plate over the bolts, then tighten the nuts down.

I'll have to try to dig it up and post pics. Would be happy to let it go for $20.

I have seen them I feel like they are much bigger then the new OEM ones on the F series.

There's enough badges on the car. And having just one ruins the beautiful symmetry of the front end.
