New here [waves]

Here's my '99 540i (with sport package).

I have a question for the experts here as I only got the car last fall - did sport package 540s originally have the badge on the trunk lid, or was mine de-badged by a previous owner? Does anyone have a list of exactly what was included with the SP from the factory?

for 99:

shadowline trims, the m steering wheel, the m suspension, you could option the sports seats (it started in 99). And style 47 wheels were optional.

you can order the car debadged from the factory - this is a FREE option , probably the only free option on a BMW
or one can debadge using a hairdrier

I was thinking of debadging my M5.
I have seen one running arounf in the GTA that is debaged.
What do you think?
Or better yet, 'underbadging' my beast!
i.e. 525i in place of M5.

There is one guy in Switzerland running around with a 520i badge on his M5.
Must be worth a few laughs when someone is trying to race you....

well ... that funny guy was pulled over by puhlice because they thought that the car was stollen when he put his 520d badge on it .... I read the storry on the m5board.com
what I think though .... very few people know what m5 is or what 525 stand for so debadging or underbadging would make little difference. some people who know what m5 is have NO CLUE how fast it is. they think they can dust a large 5 series BMW in their Golf GTI. but ...for me if I owned an m5 my heart would miss a beat every time I'd walk up to it and look at the M5 badge and thought I #$%^& own and drive this beautifull machine ....
I'd leave it where it belongs

by the way, a funny storry happened when I first got my 540 and took 4 other guys from the office for a ride ... one of them owned a modded Mustang Cobra ... well ... 5 of us went in and I took them arround the block in 1st and 2nd gear. you had to see their faces!!! especially the 'stang owner ... he never thought that a large luxury sedan can be so fast and agile. He wanted a 540 ever since
