Rear Emblem Placement

Hey everyone, I just ordered a black 330i emblem for my car to replace the chrome. Does anyone know where to find a template for the emblem placement? I have seen them for older models but can't find it for our car. Thanks!

If you haven't already taken the chrome one off, just surround the existing one with painters tape...

Agreed. Many ways to do this that achieve the same end result. When in doubt, search YouTube as the rebadging how to videos are plenty on there.

Nice color, look forward to seeing how things turn out.

I had the same feeling about going the IND route. Didn't realize cost is because of the painting aspect, but it should lead to lasting badge in the long run. Will await to get your feedback before ordering one myself.

IND should provide a template, or at least help acquire one. Did you ask them?

They didn't provide one but I also didn't ask. I just used painters tape to outline it and actually did the emblem 1 number at a time to make sure everything was in line. Kind of a pain but worked out well.

I hope this isn't too silly of a question, but does the replacement badge get put on as one piece, or does each number go on separately? Is there a plastic that holds the pieces together that peels off once the badge is set?

Also is black chrome or gloss black the better choice? Thanks!
