Exclamation Black BMW Emblem

I bought black emblems 3 years ago for my 3 series, and when i bought a 5 moved them too the 5. The car wash the other day broke the emblem in half so now it looks chrome, but i want my black emblem back. I am searching all over the internet for black emblems but now all i can find are stickers or some ****. 3 years ago they came up right away. And I am not talking about the carbon fiber ones im talking about the plain black ones.

Do they still make the plain black emblems?

If so can someone send me a link on where to buy them?

Thanks!

Saw your prices, just wana ask a few questions.
After my expirence with ebay emblems, i really distrust the aftermarket world for these since only after 6 months mine started to fade/dull/and in beautiful SoCal, the plastic heated up enough that i could leave a finger print in the emblem (permanent) or leave a divit with my nail and the emblem actually bubbled.

Do you have an long term customer reviews? Can you ensure that yours will not end up like my old ones?

Our product is guaranteed with a 1 year warranty, I've been using these roundels on my personal vehicle for the past 3-4 months and have no issues to report

Anyone get the carbon fiber roundel, and been happy with them? I have seen some on Amazon, but people claim they faded in 2 days in the sun.

Not an actual roundel but an overlay. Overlay is a fancy word for sticker.

You do know that you're asking someone that only has 20 posts...and the last time they posted to the forum was the very one you're inquiring about...and that was over 4 years ago?

And what is your explanation of "legit"? BMW only makes one type of Roundel...anything else is aftermarket...so "legit" would mean what?

If I was looking for a different type of Roundel...I'd look up the original 11 digit part nbrs for the e39 trunk/hood emblems (or e60 5 series...not sure which you're looking for)...then shop using those numbers. Not only should you find vendors selling the regular looking and original Roundels...but you should also run across other colors and looks, too.

Good luck.

All those are aftermarket that will NOT last. The price is ridiculous. You can have the genuine O.E. BMW roundel from ECS Tuning for 31 $ with grommets or from FCP Euro 29$ without grommets and 1$ for both grommets that will last for years.
