Default Z3 M Coupe Badge Placement (S50 & S54)

hopefully these will make life easier for people

note to add: the drawn line for the measurement B, is taken parallel with the tailgate edge.

Looks like they originally stuck it on first and then measured it because I'm sure that nobody would actually decide on 23mm

How far away is the parallel line?

Indy,

I'm getting worried about you!

You started this thread in the middle of the bloody night! You MUST get some rest and stop obsessing!

I still can't fathom the placing of the S54 badges, it just looks wrong to me!

Anyway I prefer a sidebadge on the rear as the normal ones look too big!

My badge is in the wrong place (thanks Indy!)

What's the best way to remove it without causing any damage? And then, best way to get it back on, ie some good, thin double sided tape?

I suppose you're used to looking at the S50 version. There is aesthetic logic to the placement. The top of the badge lies along the same horizontal line as the top of the right-side light cluster and this then dictates that the badge is 23mm from the bottom edge of the rear door so for the sake of symmetry, the badge must be 23mm from the side edge of the rear door. It looks right to me.
