: "Ve don'dt need no stinking badges" Well from a "Fist Full of Dollars" to the acoutremont of my M-Roadster, the badges are an issue. My ///M has turned light pink. And, based on my conversation with der service advisor today, I anticipate der difficulty in a warrantee tussle. Also warrantee issues ("issues"=90s speak for fu*king problems!!!)the "Business CD" that skips and goes berserk when going over highway Bott's Dots, rear speakers that sound like kazoos, a wacko gas gauge.
: Gumby goes in Wednesday and I'd appreciate all war stories, and related tales before I deal with the fixers..
Here's what I did with the faded (pink) stripe on the ///M emblem. Buy a small bottle of model paint that matches (or comes close) the "M" stripe and paint it. Mine looks great. Everybody that sees it thinks I keep getting it replaced by the dealer because it always looks new. The Arizona sun fades them real quick. I painted mine last July and it still looks as good today although my car doesn't sit out in the sun all day either. Anyway, you'll probably only have to re-do it twice a year and it only takes a inute if you mask it from the other colors with masking tape
