Besides very carefully, how did you align your K5 trunk emblem? Or did you just eyeball it? I've seen a few on here that look a little too far to the left or right. Where's the primo spot ?

I'll be tackling this issue when my new emblems arrive, but I was thinking of using a ruler and pencil to mark where I think it should go? For example, remove the old one, measure the blank spot on the car, find its center, and then measure out 1/2 the distance from the center spot horizontally and vertically and mark those 4 spots that should serve as a guide to place the new emblem.

Anyone else have a good trick to centering it, besides something like this?

I noticed that too. Lots of them are placed off.

Of all the pics I have seen of it seems to me the bottom of the 5 should line up with the ridge from the rear bumper. Only time will tell though...just ordered mine from David along with the K badges.
