This is the ultimate vehicle TBH.

Room for the family, an amg v12, and some 4x4 action for off-roading. And to top it all off, racing stripes.

1-of-1 with a Limited Edition badge!

Totally unrelated, but I just watched Legit Street Cars' latest on YouTube. There's an X6 that's really an M, but has a fake M badge with black / red / yellow stripes ��.

Guess they wanted an extra 20% for the vehicle.

I guess it's a Limited Edition because of those 1980's convex mirrors.

Fun fact: when Lotus finally revealed the Federal model of the Elise band in 2004, they didn’t say “L O T U S” on the back at all. There was uproar on the forum at the time and they let us vote whether the back would be blank, have a small Lotus round badge like the front, or the silver lettering (originally raised letters). You see what option won.

I know the UK spec cars just had the emblem, but I've always preferred the Lotus chrome letters (I'm a photographer and they catch the light). To me, the worst thing they did was change them to actual pieces of plastic, like it was a damn Mustang or something. I had no idea they took a poll on LT.

I agree, when they shifted from the raised letters to the stickers, they really lost the plot.

The vote came before lotustalk, and in fact it came from before it was renamed from elisetalk. In 2003 and 2004, we used to congregate on a proto-board called Roadfly. There was a guy from Lotus USA named Clyde that was a direct pipeline to the factory guys and he's who took the vote.

I remember when it was Elisetalk, circa 2004 I think. Never heard of Roadfly, that's very cool. Clyde, hmmm, interesting.

Badge looks real, but something's not right

Spotted at SOVREN Fall Finale at Pacific Raceways today.

P.S. There were also some *epic* 2002 racecars there. There was this one grey one that I only saw in practice, but it was wicked fast.

Each sticker adds 5 HP and the painted slats nearly 10 (better breathing, you know).

Question. Obviously I find M posers hilarious and love this thread dearly. But recently I’ve found myself wondering if I’m not guilty myself.

I have a base F90 and replaced the silver M5 trunk emblem with the black one (which is otherwise only on competition models). I DID NOT put the “competition” part on.

Have I become what I hate most? What’s the crowd say here?

No. You replaced an M5 badge on an M5, right?

Yes. That is correct. But as I thought about it maybe since that black badge is exclusive to the competition it was a type of fake badging to put it on my car.

Only in Canada.

The bejeweled license plate frame really sets it off.
