First of all, tell me if I'm crazy for this idea...

I wanna take off the 325i from the back and clean it. It's got a brown crud around it on a white surface. Once clean, I wanna put it back on. Either the original 325i badge or the BMW M Technic badge (part# 51142251228 at realoem.com, but is says ENDED - oh my...) used

So in conclusion, ja oder nein? (yes or no)

taking it off is super easy....but don't put the old one back on. it probably would fall right off

new ones are cheap and they have proper stick-um to stay on for a long time

IMO i don't think the m-technic would look good on the back, and since it is already on the sides of the car, i think you should leave it the way it is (besides cleaning the rear)

true, but the ones on the side are hardly noticable. they are faded and in a obscure spot. they are little clear stickers that go on the surface and just say M Technic. they're about half inch tall by 1.5 inches wide.

the one i want is this...

as according to the real oem catalog:

Main Group: 51
Sub Group: 20
scroll down to emblems
No. 13 - part # 51142251228

so just cruise on to realoem.com, click enter database, click here to enter, enter EC05093 as the serial search, search parts
