F06/12/13 M6 Front Grille & Badge Question

Hey guys, any F06/12/13 M6 owners out there that can give me a measurement (height / width) of the M6 badge on the front grille. I have a 640i GC and would like to swap out the front grilles for the M6 double slat style. Don't want to be a poser and pretend it's an M6 but if I get the measurement of the front badge, just looking to see if I can find an M Badge that will suit or mostly cover the mounting block on the grille. Many thanks in advance - you'll save me a drive to the dealership to measure.

P.S. I know you can get aftermarket grilles without the badge mount but I'm keen to stick to BMW OEM parts. Cheers.

You can put an ///M badge. Just take out the 6. It's an M sport. No?

Yeah, I can, but it will leave quite a big blank gap on each side, even if I centre it. I think the M Sport Fender Badge is a little bit larger than the one on the grille. If so, I am hoping it can cover most of the mounting area on the front grille, otherwise, you see blank plastic on each side of the badge. The fender badges are still quite small, so hopefully won't look too big.... Just wanted to check the sizes to make sure... Just being fussy!

Thanks heaps for the reply, nice grilles but I want to keep the chrome outer surround, not sure my car can pull off the full black look.
