As promised in your Taurus X post, here are the incriminating photos. The badge up close: 328!.
Here’s when I took delivery at BMW Welt, just drove down the ramp into the parking lot:
In Amsterdam at the Crowne Plaza just before I dropped her off to ship home – the fat bastard is me. Keep up the good work, I could not make it through the day without TTAC!

While I never took pictures of this process–that’s like totally not allowed, ya know–in the last few factory tours I’ve seen, this really shouldn’t happen. The emblem alignment machine on the assembly line makes this rather impossible. My only guess is that the emblem was shipped to the factory with the “i” positioned upside down, it was already lined up and glued to go on that way. Which is somewhat tragic, except far more hilarious. Put another way…
OMG PAY ATTENTION TO ME CUZ I’M A 328!. 328!, SON!!!
And, for crying out loud, you’re not a fat bastard! Rather, you have the proud stature of a proper Automotive Journalist. But seriously, I used to sell Corporate Wellness Programs (and you thought selling cars was tough? At least people want that crap!) so you should address this situation. Vellum Venom also applies to the human physique?
Perhaps that’s true…and perhaps I better hit the gym myself. Dang.
