Mein Auto: 98 bmw z3
Exclamation few questions on my 98 z3

my emblems on the side and the trunk are pealed off i just bought new emblems today off ebay can anyone tell me how to take the old ones off and put the new ones on without destroying anything?

2 does anyone know where i can get the window guide's for the door seal meets the window, i found one place and there wanting 200$ for the rubber seals ?

3 does anyone know where to get the dash console replacements. I hate the wood finish it has in it. I tried the dash sticker crap but it looked horrible they say it was laser cut but the gaps were outragous in between the parts. anyways i seen some on ebay but none are for a 98 auto. and since i just redid the upholstry in the car to black and steal color to give a nice modern look to match the silver exterior and the black top.... im wanting to get a silver console insted of the wood finish it has now....

4 if i can get some oppions on this convertible top i just bought my upholstry guy ordered it for me and is gonna install it he says its a (Hartz Cambia top) im just wondering if i can get your insights on the quality for it

5 im going to be moving to michigan and i was there a few weeks ago and the snow and ice are horrible up there can anyone give advice to what would help the car make it through the winters up there....thanks

Roundel replacement is uber-easy. Just pry the roundel up slightly with a very small screwdriver and use a credit card to pry it out, being careful not to scratch anything.
The new roundel simply snaps into place. Piece o cake.
