I have a f30 luxury line

I got my 328 luxury line but did not come the luxury badge. Does any one know where I can buy one and how much they are?

You should ask BJ he knows everything there is to know about luxury badges. Except he was banned I think.

I have asked the dealer and they do not stock it in the US. The sport line badge is part 51147294497

Where does the badge go? Are you talking about the doorsill?

I too have a luxury F30 and I'm extremely pleased it doesn't have a badge that says so.
Too many people out there who would use that as a reason to attack your car.

The US models don't come with line badges. If your dealer can't get one for you ask in this board and maybe some kind soul who debadged his from Europe would give them to you.

I have a buddy who did European Delivery and his came with a Luxury badge. Mine is a Sport line shipped to us and no badge on mine.

Haha, I did not even bother to look if it was there. Sure enough it's not there and I'm ok with it.

For c3r2z8f30i, I'm sure he'll be able to find the part and be sure to post a pic after it's done.

Is there a "key me please!" badge? If there were I would imagine that it would have the same effect as the "luxury" badge.

why would you want to advertise your car being "luxury" ?

Having the badge "luxury" doesn't make your car anymore luxurious than my non-badged luxury line F30 ...

Furthermore, it just look so tacky...

it would exactly be the same thing as putting the badge "sport" on your car, would that make you car go faster than anyone ? mmm

I prefer the subtle details over the labels.

so skip it

Off topic but that would be Blazing Saddles.

Canadian models come with a line badge on the fender. Doesn't add anything to the car. I'm actually thinking of removing it.

Maybe you can stick a $5 Bentley badge on the F30 luxury line, would that make the car more luxurious?

I completely agree with you, BUT it is an option that BMW provides. BMWs decision to add these badges on the F30 had to be based on some research or feedback. I personally hope they get rid of them, just saying its not like the OP wants to order a badge from JC Whitney add it.
