Removing the hood logo

my bmw logo is completely wearing out, its blue/silver now instead of blue/white.. so i was wondering if i can just pop it off with a screwdriver and epoxy a new one, or if that would just damage it?

i have an e34 525.. would it be more complicated to remove off a different model?

The hood or trunk badges on your BMW are pushed into grommets to hold them in place. These grommets are located at 3 and 9 o'clock.


To remove a badge, use a thin-bladed screwdriver and a clean rag. Lift the badge up a little at a time using the rag under the screwdriver to protect the paint. Once you can get your fingers under the badge, pull it straight up. Be very patient and do not rock the screwdriver. Always lift straight up so that you don't scratch the paint.

WHat I did was carefully drill a couple of holes right around the middle of the roundel emblem, then jut grabbed it from the holes with some plyers and pulled up patiently.

sounds like i'll try the screwdriver idea... using two screwdrivers would probably help it come out straight.

not sure i want holes in my old one, might wanna keep it as a souvenir (with a little Brasso the ex-white part comes out shiny silver)

No, just use one driver and pry one side a small way up at a time, using 2 if you slip, you will have a paint job to do.

good point.. my paint is f'd up as it is.

kinda off topic, but since i'm making the hood look good again is there an easy way to get rid of really small paint chips?
on the front of the hood, looks like from hitting small gravel at high speeds...

The only way to diguise them is with touch up paint/ stick, thats really about it apart from a spray can.
