FEELER: Nürburgring Track Stickers

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Hey guys, I posted this ad over in the e90post sale section but I thought i'd post it here as well to see if any of you 1 series guys would be interested. A buddy of mine just started cutting these stickers. Just wanna see how many ppl are interested in these vinyl decals. He's looking to do a group buy for these so if I can get a group of 10 or more the pricing would be $6 a pair and shipped to you. Let me know whos interested, from what I've seen online these go upwards of $7 for a sticker. Just trying to gauge some interest from the 1 series community. Heres some pictures for your viewing pleasure




If you guys are interested I'll extend the GB pricing to you guys as well which is $6 for a pair of stickers shipped to you. PM me with any questions, if you wanna go ahead and order a pair then just send the money to my paypal ID: pnguyen929@gmail.com

Lol, people are going to be flamed for sporting an un-earned nurburgring sticker even more than an unearned ///M badge. :P

Never been to the Nurburgring, have you? Go once, and you'll realize what it means. The sticker isn't for posers, is for people who've been.

PayPal done for 2 pairs.

I've been there on 2 different vacations, and driven it once for 2 laps. I hope that qualifies me to have them.

Have Fun,
Rick

wow. if you haven't actually driven on the 'ring, you should be ashamed of yourself if you buy one of these and put it on your car.

if you have driven the 'ring, then heck yes you should get this. A guy I know who photographs for Bimmer magazine has about 10 different track outlines on his BMW, it looks pretty cool, in my opinon.

I would take it a step further and say the sticker should only be placed on a car that has lapped the ring with the current owner driving it.

^^
And not the sticker being sold here, but the one you actually get at ring. Anything else is complete poser-city, baby.

I earned mine.

This not a very good remake/copy of the real sticker, to each his own.

I made the mistake of spending my last euro on another lap and never got a sticker. Grrrr. Turns out their website will sell stickers, but shipping to the US is flat at $50.

I got mine - Thanks.

So now comes the quandary - I've also driven Spa-Francorchamps, so I want that sticker on the car as well.

I see them on eBay, but I'd rather have them both look alike (side note - Is "anal retentive" hyphenated? ) So I'll have to decide if I get both tracks from there and put them on, or see how the Spa one matches up with these.

Have Fun,
Rick

Well technically,then, the stickers should be put on the tires (since they are _hopefully_ the only part that actually touches the track), and when those tires wear out, you're done with the stickers

I'm figuring you must be pulling legs, 'cause its either ED or ship your car over & back - lots of folks can afford that, eh?

Have Fun,
Rick

Thats like saying that I drove the Ring in GT4 and that qualifies me to put the sticker on my car. Its a sign that your a punk if you put it on and didn't earn it. Personally, I'm waiting until I save up the cash to make the trip on my own. Until then i'm good with my 1addicts sticker.

Well I have been fortunate enough to live 30mins away from the ring for the last 7 years and have driven 4 of my cars on it. The last 2 (06 Civic Si and My 1er) were broken in on the way down there. I love what that sticker represents and I will spark up an hour long conversation with anyone bearing that mark. Regardless if they have driven it. It shows that yuou are educated in boy-racer car terms. Usually if people start bragging about cars and such I ask if they know what the ring is and if they say no, I end it there. And yes I've known about the track for a while. I actually never knew it was so close to my home until 4 yrs ago. But anyway, of course the sticker will prompt the question of whether you have braved the green hell, but any good car guy or gal will not stop a conversation just because youve never been there. So if anything just GT4-it-up!! Its extremely realistic! And yes the sticker is on the 1er.

But it's an emblem that shows you have done what most only wish to have done in their lifetime, and over here they wear it with pride.

I have been and ran at both Hockenheim and Nurburgring on my E30 and when I sell it, the stickers will come off. That is an experience that like most have said you have to live it to understand it.

If you don't know what the 'ring stands for, do a google and you will see that most if not all supercars built around the world, come test the performance capabilities of their cars at "the Green Hell".

SPA and Monza is definetly another place I want to hit up before my time is up.
