Help me pick an emblem for my truck

I currently live in Southlake, TX. If you've not been, it is a fairy tale world where driving a Range Rover or above is required to be accepted. If you opt for a BMW or Mercedes, it better be an M or AMG. Otherwise you are a poser.

I decided I needed to up my game and try to fit in better. And to piss off anyone who really cares about theses badges. So off to Amazon I went to order some spiffy badges.

Which one will piss off more poserphobics? I could add both but I might get arrested for tormenting the snowflakes. I like the ///M better myself, but I may be biased.

You're being too conservative. Go with ///M V10. If you're going to torment them, do it right.

I have a bunch of friends that lived in South Lake when I lived in Las Colinas back in the early to late 1990s. I still love the area.

I think you are trying to be funny but most will just assume you are a douche. Just dont. And Southlake is nothing compared to Preston Hollow or University/Highland Park.

I had the ///M license plate surround on my old little Jeep Cherokee. I was surprised how many people would stop to let me know that it wasn't a BMW. Thanks!

Neither. Get a Toyota OEM "Hybrid" badge. It will piss everyone off.





I put one as a joke on the tailgate of my lifted Jeep XJ I used to have. It was crazy how many people would ask me what it got for MPG or say "I didn't know they sold hybrids". The Prius and Toyota owners knew I was trolling.

That's brilliant! I'm not sure, though, because the intent is to piss off holier than though brand babies and I have found the ///M and AMG poserphobics to be very vocal. I think the HYBRID badge would just initiate friendly inquiries abut MPG. Not the effect I am going for. Although, when they ask I could say it gets 12 mpg (which is what it gets pulling itself around). That 6.0L NA V8 is a gas hog.

Quarantine boredom reaching new highs everyday.

I vote AMG but sub the "M" out with the M badge.
