Thumbs down Roundel Stolen

not the happiest of posts, but my roundel was stolen right off the car in Virgnia. not sure what the black market value is for something like that, but I digress.

any suggestions on where to get a new one (i.e., through the dealership or somewhere else)? don't want to go on eBay because you never know what you're gonna get in that case.

it may have fallen off, but I doubt it. in that case, would that be covered under warranty?

thanks for any suggestions.

Thank you! how do you determine whether or not someone is an "authentic" BMW reseller? if it's a bit more at the dealer I might be tempted to replace it there.

Keep your eyes peeled for this guy:

eBay isn't bad, just contact the seller and ask if they are in the box with the part number.
Personally I would go to the dealer and get one. They can get expensive if it keeps happening, and you may have to file a claim for hood damage as they can leave scratches in the paint with whatever they use to pry it off.

If you are a BMW CCA member you should get a discount on the part from the dealer, which helps soften the price.

Roundel thefts used to be rampant here. Not so much anymore. Seems the kids are more into the KIA badges now.

LMAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOO at the Honda - that's cray right there.

Oh yeah by the way I replaced mind last summer. After a 3.5 hour drive from the City to the State, My roundel disappeared and I had a feeling the wind force is to blame. Also I've notice the original roundel doesn't seem to be that solid though seems like it was made to brake easily.

LMAO @ the Honda!

Didn't we have a master thread around here a couple of years ago dedicated to non-BMW cars photographed with BMW roundels and badges? Maybe it was just a web page someone linked to? Either way, it was absolutely hysterical.

Bought black and silver roundels for trunk hood and steering wheel 3+ years ago off eBay. $20 for all 3 and they still look great.

Some little punks playing flashlight tag at a campground filched my hood roundel last week. Bastards.

Thanks! I just ordered from your site after being inspired by how easy to replace by the installation video.

Damn sorry to hear that. Thieves suck a**. There are plenty of vendors on here that you can order replacement parts from.

thanks for all the tips and words of support guys. actually, my dealer replaced it without cost to me. which leads me to suspect two things: a) there is still good in the world, even though the bastards keep stealing. or and perhaps also b) that the dealer is aware of these flimsier roundels and are more willing to replace them. anyway, alls well that ends well. I'm bummed to hear it's going on elsewhere, though.

Yes, believe it or not the Roundel is actually sought after in certain places. I have no idea why or what for, but they do steal them. Actually I do know why, just Google "BMW Civic" and you'll see where they end up.

Great you were able to catch one free of charge from the dealer. Probably costs BMW less than a dime from the producer.
