Hood Emblem question
while my 2006 X5 was going through the car wash the other day, the hood emblem went missing. the base is still attached and it looked like the face plate was glued to it and let go. I haven't called the local BMW dealer to see how much it will cost to replace it. I have found a few websites that sell the OEM replacement for between $25-$35. my question is does the the emblem have a screw that attaches it from the inside of the hood? if anyone can give me a bit of insight into how I go about replacing it, I would greatly appreciate it.

no. it is held together by plastic/rubbery grommets. no screws involved. i just replaced my OEM one (chrome was chipping) with a black and white one from good as new, OEM quality. I say get one from there. Hope that helps.
