Where can I get a V12 badge to put on my M5?

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I don't think this car has enough M badges for people to realize they should get out of the way. Has anyone installed a V12 badge yet? I would imagine that would add at least 100hp right?

LOL

Why not go the whole hog and paint the roof too:



I have the same problem - everyone wants to try and be as fast as the M5, usually ends up in humiliation for them, poor souls.

This one looks like it has 800hp. Just missing the V12 badge before it can take on the LaFerrari.

I'm not sure V12 is the answer, try the following (I'm sure your familiar with what Top Gear said about Audi drivers), this may be a better fix for this problem.

Ok, so let me see if I catch on here. If I all a V12 badge, paint the roof, and tint the car, I gain 300 hp combined? Holy crap, why didn't y'all tell me that earlier.

You forgot the xdrive badge to cure all the traction issues, that's vital if your gonna tune to that level.

I'm tempted to order an AMG V12 BiTurbo Badge because of this thread. I want in on all this extra horsepower.

I was actually under the impression (per a conversation with a guy with a mullet) that painting FLAMES on your car added the most horsepower while also signaling to other drivers to get out of your way - either because they understood your car to be so fast that it could actually catch on fire... or more simply that your car was ACTUALLY on fire and they ought to get as far away as possible. Either way, I think flames are the way to go!

Painting flames is pretty good, but if you want to compete with a Veyron you need real flames.

Looks effective for illegal traffic light drag races against Veyrons, however, may be counterproductive for those of us with detailing OCD.

Apparently the Q-branch have done a deal with M GmbH and the E38 rocket launcher sunroof is now available as special order individual item for other model series. The wiring is pre-fitted so should be a straight forward after-market mod.

actor agreed. I guess that's what happens when the board is quiet. Some companies need to come out with new products and tune so we can have something to talk about.
