Look good!

It will be interesting to compare yours with mine and Flimper's. As stated, we got ours from the place in the US and both of us, whilst very happy with them, thought that the red may be a bit dark.

And we can do that tomorrow! :)

If I could choose between the ones that I have and those that MrPT has I would go for MrPT's.

The two blues look to be the same, but the red on mine is darker, whereas MrPT's are more bright - fire engine - red. That said, if I compare mine to the small ///M badge on the steering wheel, the colour match is very close.

I would have no hesitation in recommending that you get the same ones as MrPT's. After all, for £6 it's not a huge investment! Further, the place in the US doesn't seem to be replying to anyone, so the only alternative to the MrPT/ stickers is to get new badges and that's going to be a lot more than £6 plus the hassle of removing the old ones and fitting the new ones.

If it stops raining today I'll try to get a good picture of mine.

Hope this helps.

Good to meet you Rick, and spend a good ten minutes staring at ///M badges in the rain like a couple of proper wallies!

As you say, there really wasn’t much in it at all. Thanks to Pures3 for the recommendation. :thumbsup:

Not the greatest of pics nor the cleanest of cars, but I think it's captured the colour pretty well.

I've done some friendly neighbourhood research using a spare sticker and it looks like the red and dark blue are bang-on. The light blue is miles off but, looking at some older M3 pics, I have a feeling BMW changed the light blue between the E9x and the F8x. It looks like Yas Marina Blue now.

So I received my decals from Taylor Made today - super friendly service and more than happy to post all the way to Australia. Oh my god it transforms the car and makes it look like new!

The colour is extremely vibrant. My original badges were so faded so I have no idea how it actually compares though. But I'm extremely happy with the result :)

That’s a huge difference. I ordered a set a few days ago too, although mine will be taking a slightly more circuitous path :)

Hey guys sorry to revive that thread. I am looking for replacement badges, I do not have the car yet ... but I know its badges are faded. The badges are 45-50 USD everywhere. Which is way overpriced. I was wondering (since I do not have the car close by). For the one who ordered stickers, I guess that you remove the old sticker over the plastic emblem and replace it? Or you completely remove the plastic emblem and replace it with a sticker? It may sound like a dumb question ...sorry ... but since the car is not in front of me, I am trying to figure this out.

I saw stickers for sale ... something like that http://www.donewhenimdead.com/garage/co ... ill-badges

I ordered the stickers recommended in this thread and they look good and fit perfectly. The OEM stickers are easy to peel off the chrome badge then the new ones stick directly in their place.

I tried to buy some from Taylor Made Decals on Facebook today but he's had to stop making them due to copyright laws.

That’s a shame, they’re a really good match for OEM.
