Default Fake BMW Lettering and Badges

Hi All, had a bad online purchase experience recently regarding E66 750LI boot lettering.
Can someone tell me which forum (not necessarily this one) It would be best to post info and detailed photos of how to identify the differences between genuine and copies? Just so more people are aware of the rubbish floating around.

After being pissed off at what they had send me (serves me right for buying online), I went to a dealer and got a genuine part. The copy was very expensive too.

Here is my comparison:

Frankly just buy from the dealer if you want the real deal. These are inexpensive.
Other reputable sellers like EAS do sell them online too.
