imho, leave it oem or off. It looks odd with black ///M.

It looks better on AW and BSM.

Take a photo from the same angle showing the complete car from behind. I think the smaller pics aren't that great quality which makes it look better with it off.

It does look very clean without the M.

Should you decide you don't want it ... consider it sold!

Thanks for the feedback...
I don't think that there is any question that the 1M is an M car, so badge isn't required....looks way cleaner without. The chrome looks bad, but the black badge draws even more attention to the badge.

I will go against the trend and say the black ///M badge looks the part. Leave it on.

missus likes the VO cos it's quirky she said and she has vetoed red. do not understand how she has that right but she may have a point that red is a common colour for the 1 series. It's still on the card as far as I'm concerned

yeah, there's a lot of plastic bits on our 1M but it is still one cool car to have.
Thanks for the freebies, keep it for me when we meet again.
