Where did you get that from KingSilverBack? That looks pretty cool. Something different!

Well, I've installed a white LED emblem on my hood to match my LED angel eyes, and a red one on the trunk to match the rear lights. Looks soo cool at night!!! Like you said, it's different and everyone I run into just loves it!!! I'll try and take a pic and post...

Nice. I like those 750s but it is good to see another clean 02 745i CJENNJR.

Got it from China but beware trunk emblem in its entirety is actually bigger than 82mm, took me a while to mod my current emblem and fit the 82mm one into it. I'm working on getting one custom made just for the 7 series, this one was my first prototype

Yes I've seen all those but I'm very sure the blue or red ones would attract unwanted attention from the police because they are "their colors" White is neutral. Yes had to drill a small hole in the center of the trunk where emblem goes. Nothing major.

looks good , I wouldn't mind doing a white for running lights & red for brakes .

have you seen the headlight stuff people have done ?
Last year some guy showed up to a meet down here
& he could change the color of his halo's with his phone
I think , or maybe it was just a small remote he had in his hand .

I've seen that too, you can change the colors using an app on your phone, basically you have a color palette and you can swipe to create your own, however for our cars I'm sure the headlight has to be taken completely apart for the install and then resealed, that makes me weary, plus expensive as hell. For such mods as the emblem white is your best option.
