M3 Trunk Badge Measurements?

I debadged my car a while ago so I don't have a template to work off of. I need to install my matte black badge, so can someone supply the OEM dimensions for the badge's placement?

This is helpful - maybe someone ought to forward it to BMW so they can put our badges on straight at the factory...

I wonder if having Individual paint means that the badge gets affixed out of normal assembly line process as a "standard" order car.

Here's my crooked badge. It's probably just because they spent extra time on my suspension and "Wednesday motor".

Huh, that's surprising - when I had to put the badge back on my Infiniti, it was a part of a foam template that lined up with the hood edge and tail light. Very user-friendly, I'm surprised BMW doesn't do it.

Cheers

Yeah, it's clearly excessive extra torque that made the tape shift
