E65 custom rear trunk emblem

I wanted to confirm what I've seen on another post about how to do a custom rear emblem on the e65/66.

For anyone that has looked into it on our 02-08 E65/66 it's a pain in the neck. A whole back I read a post about drilling a hole into the roundel and pealing away the BMW emblem from the chrome ring. I was bored today and decided to give it a try and replace it with an Alpina emblem. Here are the pictures.

It took a while to do but I feel like it looks pretty good.

Only thing I'm working on is the best way to glue it together. There was a ton of glue holding down the previous emblem.

The emblem itself sits just slightly higher on the chrome ring compared to the original, but its hardly noticeable.

I used a drill, pliers, screw driver, and a wire cutters.

What I'm thinking about doing to attach the two pieces together is taping them into alignment and then flipping the two pieces over and pushing super glue into the hole I made in the first step. I'll post pictures after its done later on.

Q: Does ALPINA offer ALPINA emblems that replace the BMW emblems on the front and rear of BMW ALPINA automobiles?

A: No. All BMW ALPINAs are delivered with BMW emblems on the front and rear of the vehicle, documenting the trade name 'BMW ALPINA'. Please note that any ALPINA emblems for fitting on the front or rear of vehicles are not Original ALPINA Parts but in fact counterfeits.

Each to their own, but FAKE Alpina badges always look Naff, really can not see the point.
They fade to buggery after a few months

I have the BMW ones to put back on if I don't like them. It's fine.

If I bought that B7, the first thing I would do is put the proper BMW badges on, as delivered from the factory.
