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...

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:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322967450912

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.

M badge replacement stickers

Post by Attilio » Fri Mar 27, 2020 8:34 pm

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?
