    Hello,

    I have a 2001 E46 320d tourer and the BMW badge / emblem on the bonnet is in awful condition. I want to replace it with a new one and have been looking on ebay at aftermarket ones. They all seem to have two pins underneath the badge?

    I suppose I have two questions...

    1. How do I remove the existing badge from the bonnet? Is is stuck on or screwed on?

    2. Does anyone know or recommend a good replacement?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Many thanks for the replies, much appreciated. The link to Pelican Parts was very useful (thanks Davy). Sounds like the aftermarket ones can be a bit ropey then? Can anyone suggest a site where I can get a decent one? Really don't want to spend £20+ on one from BMW

    Thanks!
