Carbon Fiber Emblems finally!!

Just thought I would share with you guys the replacement of the OEM BMW emblems with Carbon Fiber Emblems. I have wanted to do this mod for so long and finally got around to it, all because of this board too!!

I would have had no idea how to replace the trunk emblem if it wasn't for this board, thanks so much (especially Impulse)!

I got these from Trinity Autosport :

Since the trunk emblem is the exact same size as the front one, you have to buy another front emblem and grind down the pegs that stick into the car so that they don't exist anymore. Then use a credit card like object to take off the rear emblem, and slightly grind down the things sticking out from the latch. Then just use double-sided tape to stick the emblem on. Here is the post that helped me originally.

Trunk emblem replacement? And any carbon fiber overlays for the emblems?

Little subtle mods like this changes the car

I had the same theme on my previos 6er as it was jet black,
now that I have red M6, I went for something different

Red/Black

i'm planning to just cut a bit of red fibre tape and stick them on..

Why don't you could order the overlays from Bimmian? No association.
