Side gill M3 badge removal...

Is there a way to remove the M3 badge from the side gills, then re-install it safely?
or once you remove it, it cant be re-used?

thanks

it's a sticker. You can try and re-use it, but man up and get a new one.

I use a small pick and lift it from one side to remove it nicely.

You will likely damage it when removing it. Just get some new ones.

I don't even think the factory ones come with them unless they are the ones that came with the car. Otherwise when you order from BMW or get a custom aftermarket set, you normally have to get new badges for them.

I dont know of anyone else that sells them so have to think there is no scenario where you would purposely remove a sticker but want to put it back on. Unless I guess he is painting his own-wonder if that is it

Many vendors and other places don't come w/ the emblem so you have to purchase new ones. It's not an urban legend; why you care so much? lol

The dealer sells them. Contact Marco at McKennaBMW for the best prices.

Doesn't really matter what he's doing. If he needs a new one, he can get them from the dealer. If he wanted new OEM gills, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

I think the OEM ones are mainly available via dealers. Try www.ECStuning.com and see what they might be able to do for you.

Please do! I just check the site above and their link isnt working for the side gill badges, but they do have them on there for $15.
If you can check with Sasha, I will be in Germany at the meet on Saturday...
