Ok quiz time, do you know where the ///M colours come from? :D
The blue is the Bavarian flag and red is for Texaco. I’m not sure about the purple though...

The purple had no significance , wasn't it the shade the other two made if blended :?

Yes that’s right, the purple is to signify the partnership between Texaco and The Company, both colours blended together :thumbsup: :D

I got intouch with Taylor made decals back in August 2019 and got this as a reply

"Hi Tom

Thanks for your message, unfortunately I don’t sell these anymore due to copyright reasons.

Sorry I wish I could still supply them as they are a cost effective way to keep your badges looking good without the expense of buying brand new badges.

Apologies"

Tom, all,

Thanks for the effort.

I too need new decals and that's bad news. However, I found these on eBay and I am wondering if we could use only the "tricolour" section of these vinyl decals:

Any idea? It may be worthwhile contacting this seller to check the dimensions...

Im a graphic designer and made my own. I did a lot of research used my current Z4M badges as a template an designed them to OEM spec...

I got in touch with BMW UK and they sent me the most up to date BMW M brand guidelines that they send to dealerships to have collateral produced. I have updated the colours to the newer M brand guidelines as our cars badges were produced using a slightly different Pantone. The newer colours are slightly more vibrant its subtle but looks much better in person.

Just need to find a printer that can print a vinyl that is hard wearing, resists UV (to improve on the current badges which is the issue) and obviously need to speak to a printer to see what vinyl options there are from a finish point of view I think they are gloss as standard, and get some test prints to check the colour accuracy. I also need to see if they can die cut them so there is no work when installing.

Could have a batch made if there is enough demand. They arent cheap to make in singles like £6 per badge with online retailers but I could have a local wrapping company print them and have them done on a big sheet which would reduce the cost considerably.

Beedub might be able to help as im sure he now deals with a lot of printers with wrapping cars with his business Topwrapz 👍🏻

Probably not the best time to enquire tho as most will be closed.

Hello all,

a quick update: I came across a UK company that seemingly can do decals out of our specs. I believe the dimensions of the stripes section of the M badges are 30mm x 30mm (side badges) and 35mm x 35mm for the badge on the boot lid.

I just contacted them via email and will follow up over the phone tomorrow to see if there is a chance of getting a run printed for the Forum.

Maybe we could organise a "group buy"?

Attilio Count me in. I'd probably pay up to £15 or so for the set of three.

Attilio, would it be worth getting the media off Tom and seeing if your contact can print and cut to spec?
