: I have seen a lot of debate here about removing emblems and leaving just the SILVER //M that comes from the dealership. What does it matter. Some people think their cars look a lot cleaner with fewer or no emblems. Its not that we are trying to be M5's or 540, its a matter of individualized personal choice. everybody wants to make their car different and personal. No one is trying to fool any of you M5 drivers because it is really EASY by first glance if someone drives a 528, 540, or M5. In that case, I live in Califonia and the Dealers are selling 540's with M5 front, rear spoiler and rims. Now if you buy one of those, are you trying to be an M5, but its OK because you bought it from the dealer? You people who complain about seeing cars with no emblems or just //M's on them are ignorant and insecure about your own cars. But I think it is very STUPID if you are replacing your emblems with 540 when you have a 528, or M5 when you have a 540.

I just spent a few weeks in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland & Austria. My unscientific survey of BMW's there indicates to me that about 75% of the Bimmers that I saw had no emblems. I didn't get to talk to any owners as to the reasons, but it is certainly no at all unusual over there.
