Ebay Emblem BLK/WHT...feedback & suggestions

Well the time has come, my emblems have gone to hell..chipped, discolored, and what-not. Now i want to look for -full replacements- and my eyes turned to ebay.

first off this isnt some sad thread, im want to know the sellers name, one who acutally sells good quality emblems...my old ones went bad in less than 3 months.


1. can anyone reccomend a ebay seller of anyother.
2.Black / White preffered no carbon - if possible


anyone got suggestions? i somewhat feel more comforted with USA retailer, local but what ever.

PS. anyone have a link to xexonspecialist for the spoiler?

~~~~~NO STICKERS!~~~~~~~~

Why not try one of the board sponsers...or better yet...one of the BMW dealers that advertise nationally and offer competitive pricing lik Tisher BMW (www.getbmwparts.com) or Crown BMW (www.crownbmw.com) ?

If you look up the part nbrs for the items you need on www.Realoem.com ...you can then input the correct BMW part nbr at the other sites and you'll see how much the items are going to cost you.

I bought mine from this seller. I just put them on 4 days ago but the quality seems pretty good and I didnt think the price was bad for 7 emblems. It replaced my front and rear, tires and steering wheel emblems. It was very easy to change them out flat screw driver and a cloth emblems poped right off and new ones poped right in . http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...4674&viewitem=

I believe there are companies that make high quality stickers.

edit - I totally can't remember the name, but if I find it I'll post it.

The quality of mine looks identical to oem the fitment of all the emblems is spot on. They look great I got the 7 emblems for 70 dollars shipped and all fit and look great. It took only 3 days after I ordered them to recieve them. And they are not stickers they are all direct replacement emblems. Just be careful when taking them off, I accidently chipped the paint around my front emblem. Because it was stuck on there so when taking them off the best way would probably be the dental floss. Just take the floss and slide it under the top of the emblem and pull down once it is towards the center pull up and the emblem should come right off. Then you just push the new one on and you are good to go .

It's just like the hood. Chief suggests using a plastic banding strap, which I imagine would work better and easier than floss (like I have used in the past).
