I have seen a few 750Li's with the V12 from the 760 on them, makes me laugh.

Why would you need to advertise a V8? I think they would look tacky. Just my 2 cents.

It looks tacky if you ask me. If you had a 760 with the V-12 i'd put the V12 logo behind the rear doors like on the MBenz S600.

Oh, now remembering that the 760 has that emblem on the side, no I would not, but on an older 750 v12 I would since it has no V12 on it.

I would say no simply because there is nothing special about a 8cylinder in a car of this caliber, wheras the 12cylinder is something special.

Just my 02 (i have a "un-special" V8 myself lol)

Well there are somtimes slight differences between the US and Canadian models... like for instance what we are arguing about the V-12 emblems but .....
How about the fact that in the US you poor E65 owners dont even have steptronic on your cars!!!!
so whoz smoking on crack now buddy
