    I was persuaded by an alleged additional 0.314HP on the butt-dyno, & sprung for one of these. Rather representative of the breed & comes in 040 Black!

    Re: Grille Badges

    Generally grill badges don't add horsepower, so that is rather news to me.

    I've always been told that grill badges improve aerodynamics by deflecting incremental airflow up and over the grill, thus improving top speed and acceleration.

    Looks nice, though !!

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Very nice badge. It should look excellent on the front, or rear, of your 500E.

    Finally following up on the badge's final placement. Provides endless enjoyment for back seat guests.
