Location measurements for 428i model line designation

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The previous owner of my 428i de-badged the model line designation. It would be one thing if I drove a 435i, but I don't so I want to put it back on. The 428i badge is $25.70 from the dealer.

Does anyone have the PDF instructions of where it goes exactly? I saw a PDF of a BMW instruction sheet for re-badging a different model. Wondering if anyone has it for the F32. If not, I'll ask at the dealership when I purchase and as a last resort will go out and take many measurements of a 428i at the dealer.

Thank you!

What does driving a 428, 435, or M4 have anything to do with debadging

Not to sound like a mom but it is what it is and you are who you are

I've debadged virtually ever car I've had from S4-335......
There is probably a template you can use to re-apply. Call dealer of just ask them to do it.

People de-badge for various reasons of course like aesthetics. But I think there can be the perception that when owners de-badge the base or entry-level models of a vehicle, they are just trying to hide the fact that they have a base model. Would be analogous to someone who de-badged their base Cayman - maybe they did it for aesthetics, maybe they did it because they didn't get an S....

Bottom line...Do you like it debadged?

I will post some pics later of measurements I took before taking my badges off in preparation for getting blacked out ones.

I am looking to put them back on because I prefer it. I think myself and another poster above would be very grateful. Thank you!

Personal taste I think...clean vs no opinion. De-badging could also be done to make it more of a 'sleeper' as well as hiding a base car. (Who cares if its a base car..mine is a 428 and I'm fine with that or else I would have bought a 435). Whatever makes the owner happy is totally cool. Only had my car 2 weeks tomorrow..so the only thing I've done is added black license frames (which I might switch to chrome) and black rubber mats to keep the stock carpet ones clean. I won't count the road rashed right rear wheel as a mod though courtesy of wife.com. (Getting fixed tomorrow).
