Default OEM CSL Airbox "BMW MPower" Logo/Sticker Placement

With many of us adding replica CSL Airboxes to our cars, I think it would be helpful to know exactly where to place the "BMW MPower" stickers that come with most of these airboxes so that we can replicate the OEM look as closely as possible.

Here's hoping NZ_M3 or others with knowledge of the OEM CSL airbox drop some knowledge on all of us in this thread.

I had my friend reference OE and he did the install because that was way above my skill level to get it to my standards. Lol.

What I believe he ended up doing was having equal spacing between the CCV bungs. I can post a pic if needed or reference the measurements.

As stated in the other thread, I have the technical drawings for the airbox which show the exact placement of the logo decal. Unfortunately I can't post this as it is copyrighted and BMW are known to go after individuals for copyright infringements ... so instead the next best thing lol



A space = 72.3mm +/- 2 mm
B space = 52.6mm +/-2mm

The decal also changed over the years

Top is the new one and the bottom is the old one. The new one is more 'rounded' and thinner whereas the old one specifically the p, e, r and o are quite different

Font was a custom Helvetica? Or it was bold or something. NZ will know.
