Dealer sticker on F30?

Just wondering how many Aussie F30 owners leave the dealer sticker on the car. If not, why?

I didn't think about it till a workmate asked just then.

Since I may be making the odd trip to dodgy places like banks town, parramatta I wonder if it's best to keep the sticker off. Makes sense to me. The roundel is already a trouble magnet IMO let alone a sticker from a nicer area.

I don't know what its like in Sydney, but I don't think anyone in Brisbane gives a toss which dealer it comes from.

I take it off because I'm not interested in giving the dealer free advertising. It also ruin the appearance of an otherwise clean car. Same with license plate frames.

Why would someone walk past a BMW and ignore it and then flip out and vandalise it when they saw a dealer sticker?

I take mine off because I don't see the point in free advertising. No other reason than that.

I agree with the other responses, I'm not worried about people caring where it's from, I just don't like the look.

I asked for mine to not have one placed on it at all... saved me ripping it off in front of them

I just don't like the look of it + free advertising, couldn't care less what other people thought about it.

Funny you ask. Although my F30 didn't come with a sticker - and by that I take it you are referring to the rear window sticker - my E90 did.

I didn't care that it was on my car for years, but when I started going to SoutherrnBM for service work, they did, so they removed Stillwell's and put their own in place!

I just have the dealer's name on my number plate covers. No big deal to me.

I asked my dealer to leave them off. Prefer the clean look. I also debadged mine at the factory so it's sans the 335i badge.

Definitely pull the stickers off (sometimes replaced with our TWD sticker)

And wipe off the marketing on the number plate covers too
