XDrive badge or xi after the model designation.

I'm not a fan of the huge XDrive badge on the side panel of the BMW's but now the 2013 models are placing the badge on the left rear of the car. How does the Massive feel about BMW returning to the xi badge after the model designation?

Much prefer it on the back although I don't think they should have ever moved from the xi designation.

I removed the xDrive badge from the side of my 2012 535. I think its too big and the car looks better with an uncluttered side. Left the "535i" on the back though.

I'm planning to do the same. Is it just stuck on, or is there a pin in the back?

I think the 535xi is a better designation.
