Good day to you all. I've searched through the forums but haven't found a definite answer
Can someone tell me the measurements when fitting the 'M5' badge to the boot/trunk?
I've found the standard measurements of the '520-540' badges but nothing for the 'M5'?

Hi there,
When I got a new badge for my car last year it came with
a template that lined up the badges on the bootlid.
Maybe someone near you has an M5 that you could get a template off.

Thank you for your response. Is there anyone who has these measurements?

Does this help?

All in mm; the car wasn't level so the vertical tape isn't a true vertical - the bottom corner of the M is almost exactly over the edge of the number plate well (that might make sense when you look at your car.)

If you still need more pictures, let me know as I took pics of mine with a small ruler from many spots. I then had the car painted and I put the new emblems on without issue. Looks like you have everything you need though...

Hi Technician
I you wouldn't mind could you post your pictures also
I would've measured mine before removing but I suspect that the previous owner has had some work done and fitted them in the wrong place

Where did you buy your emblem from and do you have the part number? I was never aware of a template being provided. I've changed my trunk emblem twice now, each time taking literally 2hrs of measuring and still not statisfying my eye. I will be changing the emblem for a third time now and this template might be the solution. Please let me know.

Thanks!
