Not rare, well maybe the OE one's, you can buy them from KOPerformance in the states. If I recall correctly they were about 50US for OE, and 25US for replicas. They look exactly the same but as far as I know the reps tend to fade after a few years. I have a set on my E36 and personally like them better than the M3 badge but its all about personal taste. I initally went with them because the car is not a M3 so I did not want to badge it as such. There are also other badges, they are as follows:

///M,
///M Clubsport, and
BMW M Technic

The following link is from Real OEM which will give you the PN for the badges. Just go to the stealer and place an order.
