E21 320i badge + E24 635 badge = 360i.

There's 150 of them. There are more listings, but I wasn't going to put that much effort into AliBaba.

But is that 150 numbers/letters, or 150 full badges? That part is very unclear. If it's just 150 numbers it's a huge rip, but if it's 150 full badges one could make a few bucks selling the leftovers on eBay or something.

Didn't have time this weekend, I started a new DBA class that kicking my ass. I'll mess with it soon. Honestly though, after shipping and the cost to use the 3d printer those ebay ones will be much cheaper. That seller has gloss black ones too. Unless you wanted something more custom? I can goof around with it this week if you want a funky font or something?

I just like the idea of the 3d printed one. The factory numbers are a single piece. If you can get it to me in the right format, I can just go to my wife's work and print it for free!

yeah, mostly SQL Server 2012, but I already do a bunch of this stuff at work on SQL Server 2008 R2 servers. It's just a heavy work load for someone who already works all the time and has a 10 month old at home. Makes being productive when your home difficult. I just need to get through the next 12 weeks and I'm done with school, which I sooooo ready for, lol.

So Yosh, do you want the badge to be similar font to the OE badge or you want something different? A little guidace will make it easier to whip something up.
