Calling all Canadian 1M original owners!

Canadian 1M original owners. I have a 1M owner that is telling a fellow member that some Canadian 1Ms came with no bmw ac and emissions decals under the hood. I find this hard to believe. I have owned both a US July 2011 and CAD August 2011 builds and in 8 years I have now only seen two pictures of cars without the decals. If you were an original owner of a Canadian 1M did your car ever come without Underwood decals? I have attached the underside of my hood. The decal near the latch and decal I circled is the emissions decal. My thought is that the hood has been replaced but wanted to inquire. Thank you.

Thank you. I found pictures of the 1st 1M to come to north america, it was the 24 hours of Daytona pace car.....it HAS decals under the hood. If the very first 1M to come to north america and they were built the same way why would they exclude the decals from Canadian models? makes no sense. The car in question is a May 2011 build.

here is underside of first north american 1m coupe.

Underhood decal question for all original Canadian 1M owners

Ok I found a Canadian 1M on Bringatrailer with a VIN the precedes the car in question by 9 units and it also has both decals just as I expected. So I think it is fair to call it Bovine Defecation in Canadian cursing?

The first north american 1M had it and an earlier canadian 1M had the decals too so not sure why he would say some didn't come with them.

Posting this for future reference in case someone tells another forum member something like that. If any original owners are positive their brand new undamaged 1M didn't have it, please let us know but for now, it seems inconceivable......

Yes. They all had them. Even the Daytona car which was early and had an extra oil decal on top of the radiator. Just wanted to be certain so we have good information. Thank you all for your help!!!

The person that said some didn't come with decals has now confirmed that there was a front end repair.

I'm sure the body shop said, "better than new."
