    Wow that is cheap! I suppose even they didn't last long it's still worth a shot.

    Even with the (meagre) discount we get from BM a genuine 1 will cost me ~£20.

    Can anyone point out decent quality front badges on eBay for 04 E46 please? I guess there's a lot of rubbish quality ones on there? Which ones are the £2 ones mentioned on here?

    Thanks

    A word of caution here just incase anyone is as daft as I am....

    I read this guide a couple of weeks back. I decided to use a credit card to get behind the badge and then ran it round to lever it up. However the dirt behind the badge has rubbed against the bonnet and scratched the paint. Must have been fine grit as I made sure the smooth side of the card was against the bonnet. Its an E39 so getting on a bit so I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, but I thought it worth pointing out about the dirt/grit behind and to use caution.
