Custom Badge lettering

I am planning to replace my Cooper S badge with something a bit different and was wondering if anyone has had any luck finding a place that has badge letters of the entire alphabet?

I am looking for a particular style and in chrome similar to BMW badges.

Appreciate the help,
JbravoMC

I was going to mention Your Emblem too. It does look like the Bimmian letters are different - doesn't say what exactly they are made of and I'm not clear on the warranty/returnability of them vs the Your Emblem ones.

Personally,

I like the Bimmian ones a lot more. They look more factory and the font appears a bit updated compared to the look of the other sites. Plus, the Bimmian ones have a small slant to them that I prefer.

In fact, I just ordered some. I will post pics when I get them in and on the car.

Thank you,
JBravoMC

I cant wait. What is the plan? You going to put the Austin Se7en on your boot. Hey that is a good Idea I may do that. So what are you doing?

bumble's angel,

Nice idea on the SE7EN, but not really what I am going for.

I won't be doing anything too drastic. Let's just put it this way. I am not too keen on the JCW badge I have and don't particularly care to keep the Cooper S badge on the back either. However, I do want to have a JCW badge on the car, just not the one that comes with the package.

Also, looking to do a little work up front with badges too.

Also, I ordered a few other things from Bimmian. Namely, the blackout/tint for the side reflectors and the tail lights.

I will post some pics when I am finished. Hopefully this weekend.

Thank you,
JBravoMC

This seller on the "bay" has some interesting stuff. Nice red "Cooper" letters. Might be a little small, but look pretty nice.

And BTW, I am NOT the seller! ; )

Bimmians are chromed plastic.

I have 'em on my MCS with good success. They've endured washing, waxing, heat, and rain with no apparent trouble across the past several months.

Return policy basically amounts to peeling off the backing and exposing the two way tape equals no return.

I like Bimmian style better than YourEmblem on the MINI personally. The cut of the adhesive was top notch too.

I give Bimmian lettering two thumbs up IMHO...
