I know how to get them, but I don't know why. Do they even do anything?

They don’t do anything, just for looks

People you race against will see it above your car next to your name.

Stinking things that we don't need.

I don't mind the feature, but in FM7 the variety of badges is really poor (same badges, just different colours).
In older titles badges were like some knockoff version of achievements, that popped up, when you fulfilled some sort of goal/milestone. I liked that.

I loved some of the old Forza 4 badges.

There were some hard to obtain badges, like the forzatographer one (obtain at least 100 five star rating votes in one pic - if I remember correctly).

As they were some kind of "exclusive", they have the value to show the other players your achievements. They were tons of them, for completing distances on race tracks, and more. The unlocking thing was great.

Actually is just buy and use them. I would love the Forza 4 badge system returning in the game. The current designs look pretty generic and forgettable.

Yep the Forza 4 ones were very good and I enjoyed working towards getting some of the harder ones.

Now? They're all meaningless! Except the ones you get for Tiers, which you either get or you don't, as soon as you start the game. So I just use the Tier 11 one. All the others are completely generic and unimaginative.

All the obvious effort they put into the costumes... and yet the badges were a Friday afternoon job.

And now they are for sale in the Racer Shop. They are little more than stickers. But hey you can spend those hard earned credits on them now. They should be tied to achievements. If you complete a certain challenge you should get an achievement and if they want you give you a badge you earned to show of on your gamer tag/banner that is fine. It gives you some more bragging rights that way. Now it's just hey I bought a sticker.
