I got Black and white roundels (not stickers) from Nerweezy at Trinity. I am pretty sure he has the OEM ones as well. Many places wil be cheaper than the stealerships... Look here: http://www.trinityautosport.com/

Installation is simple... place the new one in the grommet s(get new grommets if you need them) and hit straight down with your palm...

i replaced my hood roundel today (some punks vandalized my original one). there are tons you can get on ebay for $5-15 but they are probably all chinese junk and will peel or fall off easily. i just went to my local dealer and picked one up for $21, and he threw in the grommets for free. some places like bavauto want $30 for a OEM roundel, and $1.95 for EACH grommet... and that's not including shipping.

I hate it when little punks think its funny to mess with your car just because it's a BMW, MB, etc. I seen a kid just start kicking the rear quarter panel of a corvette while walking by, WTF! If I seen someone do that to my car I'd be the one up on charges I'm sure! Sorry, seen your post and it just hits a nerve with me

Mine is gone...... it doesn't look anything like the video indicates... perhaps I just lost part of it?

I'll order a replacement and cross my fingers that I am supposed to pry off the metal that remains.

that is only half gone, you do need to remove that remainder part (its actually plastic)

Hope this helps

I'd like to find a roundel that would fit over my start button. The "push to start" has become very worn, was already worn heavily when i bought it @ 34k miles. I've looked but all of the ones i've found are way too big.

Now that would look cool! If you find one let me know!

Worn or dirty?
Scratched off?
Probably lots of finger nail contact.

Here's a batmobile...

i just saw the batmobile picture, not sure why i didn't earlier. I don't see me putting that actual image over the push button, but maybe i'll think of something "non bmw" to go in it's place.................... interesting!

I got the pic from here.
You can see the member was very creative, and i'm sure a Roundel can be done if careful enough.
Not something I would do, but hey to each his own.

I just lost my roundel on the hood. I couldn't get part of the grommet out and it fell into the hole. Is there any other way to get it out?
