e92 335i M3 replica hood

i recently bought a M3 replica hood for my e92 335i. as you can see in the picture, there are no holes for the hood emblem. are there any aftermarket emblems that can be install on this hood or do i have to make adjustments on the hood???? thanks for helping!

Measure twice, drill once, and dont forget to put touch up paint on the surfaces showing bare betal.

You could also cut off the screws on your emblem and just adhesive it on there.

I have no idea about the holes, but you might want to let whoever sold you that thing know that you expected a Power-Dome not a Power-Mesa

I'd hope you test fit this thing before you got it painted...

Cut off the legs off your roundel, apply 3M double sided tape to the back of roundel, place onto hood, press and hold. Viola the roundel is now there without you needing to drill any holes.

I would do this. That way if you screw up, you only screw up a $20 roundel, not your expensive hood.

I was put in a similar situation and just took some heavy duty clippers to some replica BMW emblems. Then just double side sticky taped to the hood. Looks great and I didn't have to drill.
