I'm guilty of this as well. I replaced the chrome F-Sport badges on the IS with the black RC-F badges. I debadged everything else, but the fender badges had the holes in the fender, so I had to have something there to cover the holes.

This saddens me…. Deeply…

If you're going to add a badge or badges then at least try to make it believable instead of just throwing s*** on the car.

EBay ones are better with corrosion as it's all plastic.
They just don't stay on as well as they have half the amount of clips holding them on. One track day and they will fall off. Just remove them if you're running the wheels hot.

I noticed that they are a bit looser than the original ones. Not going to do track days so hopefully they will stay in place

It's not the top of the line, the X5M is, which is what his plate says, and that's what I think Doctor_X is pointing out. Now, it's entirely possible that he had an X5M previously and never changed the plate, but I think that's unlikely.

Isn't the X7 the top of the line?

Or do they not call the X7 an SAV?

The problem with that plate is that it'd be douchey even if real.

Maybe they are wishing for a X5M. Personally, the X6M is lighter and handles better.

X7 is an SAV, but X5M is more expensive. Is top of the line by price, or size, or some other metric?

Ah good one. Not sure. In Canada the X7 is 129,299 and the X5M is 130.
The X6 is 133.

Then there's the XB7 which is almost 170.

The discussion might be similar to "is an M-Sport an M?" Lol

I just go by the positioning of the product. The 7 series is the flagship sedan (even if cheaper than the M5), and the X7 is the SAV. But that's just me.
