3DZ "Without Lines Designation Outside"

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Guys,
Is there any way CA can remove this option when ordering?
I ordered 435 GC M Sport and I really do like M badge on the sides.

I heard that U.S. car does not come with the badge but others does.
Is badging after the delivery only option at this point? (Mine's not in production yet)

You probably have to badge it yourself. The M badge on the sides is Euro only for whatever reason. The Badges are 22 bucks each and the part number is 51148058881, heres a link: http://www.getbmwparts.com/parts/ind...&siteid=214672

Hmm - seems nice. But an M is never "endorsed" unless it is an M

True. I don't seem to mind M's if BMW themselves put it there. They have their reasons so be it.

Ask the dealer during the detail process. Mine did it for me and flawlessly. Don't wait to long or the paint will require more work.

Thanks guys. My CA told me he wouldn't be able to remove it.
I will order them myself and put them since I do like M being there as shown in the european models.

Isnt it just a badge that says "Modern"?
(which is hideous)

The "old" Modern line and the M Sport line are two different animals. Modern is closer to the Luxury line which is why BMW discontinued it. In some markets the Line cars have a side badge & the M Sport has a real ///M there.

Don't see the point of sticking them on.

BMW Canada has dropped the ///M fender badges for MY2015+ M-sports models apparently due to complaints from purchasers.
However, all other ///M badges inside the car remain.

Removing the 'Luxury' badges was the FIRST "mod" I did to my F30.

Thank goodness BMWUSA opted for no side M badges, saves me extra work of removing them...
