M courtesy light

Help me decide if this is rice or not, part of me saying yes part of me saying no lol. It's a straight plug and play solution.

From a well known Chinese shopping site, maybe you'd have some luck on ebay.

Why? Did you forget your car was an M and needed an extra reminder?

Well its the same type of thinking when you buy anything M, like M mats and M license plate frames.

hmmm...more M badges. I think we probably have enough on the floor mats, trunk, head rests, etc... . But from a tech point of view, I have to admit, it is interesting.

Hidden most of the time, nice little "Easter egg" to show off.

Don't think I'd do it personally, but it's subtle enough, I guess.

Which is why I have none of those things. Nothing like a "M" or "BMW" License plate when the emblems are only a few inches away on the deck lid.

It's like the Pickup owners with the Massive Bowtie on the back window.

Rice? Yes. Kinda cool? Yes. Too much M? Not sure.

Kind of feel the same way about the M license plate. We already have so many badges on this car... I do like how it is only observable when the door is opened though.

I think it's pretty cool. However I probably wouldn't like it on my car. Like it's cool to see but not cool to have.

I have none of those too, and even thinking about debadging, but this light is not visible normally and just tickles my fancy. I hope I can be forgiven for this
