Hey man, the key is to mark it before removing. Id suggest using some masking tape for the bottom or top and one side. Once the old is removed you'll know exactly where to put the new one. Youll also probably need some 3M adhesive remover. Good luck!

Or replace it with an AMG or GT-R badge and go waaay beyond unique. Most people here in Ohio wouldn't realize anything was amiss!

Fyi, i have a black badge too and the tricolor peeled off after about a week. Youll get what you pay for with badges. Id suggest getting a painted badge if you can.
