Photos of Replaced Roundels

Here are some photos of the roundels I replaced with the carbon fiber types from EAS. I think they look pretty good. The trunk roundel that is original to the car is one piece as others have mentioned, so I cut the posts off the new one, sanded it down as much as I could, and used some adhesive to stick it on top of the old one. It was not what I wanted to do at first, but there does not seem to be any one piece aftermarket trunk roundels, and I replaced the other roundels first, so I felt I had to find some way to get the trunk roundel to work.

cost

The cost of the carbon fiber like roundels from EAS is $59. That includes hood, trunk, all 4 wheels, and steering wheel roundel cover.

We did the same thing with our rear trunk roundel. Seems to be the only way to do it, as the stock one is all one piece.
Cheers,
