i believe that for the roundel, you need to get those little clip thingys from bavauto...

as for the washing/waxing, i would believe that you treat it the same way as anything else!

got any pics?

i have a carbon fiber hood and i refused to drill two holes into it so my roundel is held on the hood via sillicon and its been holding for about 8 months so no problems here, i jus had heard drilling holes in the hood could cause it to start cracking

Take a small flat head screw driver and a rag, pry it up until you can fit your finger under it and pull up.

Go to any auto parts store and get a good two part epoxy if you don't want to drill.

You could just buy a new roundel and try to sell you stock hood on ebay along with the old roundel you could probally get more for it with the stock BMW roundel.
