Replacing BMW EMBLEMS. (Rondel)

The rear one sometimes is mounted on somewhat of a platform. How do you change it. I've heard it's easy like the front all the way to taking the inside rear door panel off (the dealer).

How is best to do it?

Pull the old one off, stick the new one on. Easy peasy.

I would put automotive masking tape right to the edges to protect the chassis and use some plastic trim tools / cellphone tools. Not that easy, once I scratched the hood around it. Try dental floss to lift it first.

Pry the rear off and stick on the new one. No grommets needed.
