You could probably make it so one type would work for both. Maybe shafts that fit the hood grommets that are also internally threaded (or externally) for grille mounting.

I like the idea but also think a grill badge would be better than a hood/trunk badge. But I'm in for a 300,000 mile version for the M5 regardless of what the final design is.

Awesome thx Karl, I'm getting great input and it seems the round grille set up might be a hit

I think this a great idea, count me in for a grill mounted 500k miles badge.

Count me in
200K and up
Will be most interested

Note - go with posts at the same spread of the hood Roundel
It would be easy to modify as a Grill Badge, mount as the hood Roundel or with some effort remove posts and double side tape to mount

Do It !
