BMW emblems on keyless remotes

Both of the remotes for our 2006 330xi are missing the bmw logo emblems. I was able to find the part number and ordered 2 little round emblems for $5 each, but there is no tape or adhesive on them to attach them? Has anybody done this? What should they be attached with? Thanks Chris

Is it like this one? http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Fob_Roundel/ES1876203/ because it looks like that one has an adhesive backing.

People stop noticing you drive a BMW when your fob is hanging from your pocket?

Emblem fell off of my girlfriend's key a while back, though she didn't lose it. I reaffixed with a small dot of gorilla glue, and it's still there today. Be careful if you go this route - gorilla glue foams at it sets, so use too much and it will bubble out the sides.

They are factory from bmw part dept, and they don't seem to have anything on the backside to attach them. I don't know about gorilla glue, I've used it and it does foam and expand, might make a mess.

+1 on the glue. I just used regular krazy glue, and the replacement key fob roundel has stayed put for over two years.

It seems a pre-applied adhesive tape would be too thick. I would suggest just a dot of superglue applied with a tooth pick.

The ECS ones say they are OEM too.. and are peel and stick. Are you sure there isn't a clear backing you can peel off?

MY emblem fell off last night, and i decided to take the cheap easy approach. Now it will last forever with no more issues.
