ALL Black BMW Roundels

Seen a fair few people on here rocking the all black badges and think they look great! I have been looking at them on eBay but have concerns over getting the right size/fitment and there seems to be quite a number of variations.

Can anyone tell me the best seller to use, how good the fit is any if there are any issues I should be aware of? I assume the steering wheel badge simply sticks over the old one but the bonnet, boot and wheels are a straight swap?

My car is a LCI E92 if that makes any difference?


Thanks in advance for your help

I had a set of these from eBay for roughly 35 and the bonnet one was an exact fit but the boot was a complete mismatch and it didn't sit right. Had to go back to orginial emblems.

I would also be interested in getting better quality ones that fit my car perfectly.

Your best bet is to go and actually measure the roundels on your car. Different places on the internet give different information regarding size and I don't know which to trust haha.

Get out and measure them and then find the correct ones online.

Alternatively cut out some vinyl and stick it over the top haha, finish will obviously not be as good but a much cheaper solution, there is a guide on here somewhere.

Where abouts did you buy precut vinyls from? I can only find them in American and seems a bit excessive shipping them all that way haha

What do you mean?

There is more of a chance that you will buy ill fitting emblems than vinyl stickers...

Mine with vinyl on the right and achu with real emblem on the left...



Rear emblem is perfect



There is no way of telling they are stickers unless you run your hand over it.

Even then you can buy clear Emblem vinyl which goes over the top to protect them from stone chips. Put that over it and you won't be able to tell the difference what so ever.

Plus i think there was a time fairly recently where BMW managed to ban the manufacturing of all aftermarket BMW Badges... Which made it hard to get hold of them...

But give the vinyl a go, you may be quite surprised
