IND Trunk Badge Installation Procedure

In continuation of supplanting the BMW chrome accents, one of the other areas require attention is the trunk badge. BMW always supplies a chrome badge denoting the given vehicles model. Although we will not substitute the infamous Texaco Red and Bavaria Blue accents, we will provide enthusiasts with a badge suitable for the theme of their vehicle.

Similar to our gloss black side marker we utilize the OEM piece as a base.

Tools required:
  • Painters Tape
  • Bondo spreader
  • All purpose cleaner
  • 3M adhesive promoter (Optional)
1.) The first and very important step is to mark the location of the factory trunk badge. This is accomplished by framing the current chrome trunk badge with the painters tape. The painters tape will provide you with a outline of the badge for reinstallation. As you can see in the photo our technician also indicates the letter position with a simple pen mark.

2.) Simply take the bondo spreader and gently work your way through the 3M adhesive backing. The more patience demonstrated in this step will result in a easier clean up.

3.) When the chrome badge is removed from the vehicle there may be some adhesive left over from the backing. Simply remove this adhesive with a all purpose cleaner carefully applied it to a microfiber.

4.) Now that the surface is clean feel free to apply a little adhesive promoter. Alternatively, at this time you can simply apply the gloss black lettering. Remove the wax paper cover on the adhesive of the badge and apply one letter at a time with light pressure.

5.) Upon completion remove the painters tape, clean up the area around the badge, and admire how the removal of a little chrome piece can change the back of a vehicle

Nate,

Can you tell me what color black this custom M5 emblem is? Do you have a pic of it mounted on a AW M5? I am considering this vs the standard gloss black version. Thoughts?

Matt

Hello Matt,

This custom emblem is installed on the iND M5. We went with a gloss black face and Balloon white surround.
