A pix of new wheels and a question



Looking to replace the bonnet and boot badges with AC schnitzer ones, what is the easiest way to get these badges off, are they stick on or bolt on?

ps. i no there are no centre caps on the alloys, they are on order still.

not sure about e90 but e36 badges have two pins that push into rubber grommets. i used a thick cloth on the bonnet and used a flat screwdriver to gently lift the edge of the badge have to be very careful though

If you for 'roundel removal' lots of threads including DIY section ones will come up

They only push into gromits and there are a number of successful ways of removing them.

i am very pleased with the finish of the wheels. The wheels are 18s and the car is sitting on a hill with the far side downhill so may look a small bit higher but the car is also on standard suspension.

A lot of the 'reps' do - there are loads of sets on the market with four identical wheels running same size tyres and offsets, instead of the proper staggered setup with wider rear rims, with offsets to suit.

Doesn't help that they have replicated a nice wheel but then made it an inch smaller! The OEM rims would have been 19's.

Sorry OP, have to agree with the others, it looks a little 'strange' sitting on those wheels.
